Podcast 28: Not tonight honey, I have a headache

We geeked out so hard to these episodes that I ended up getting a pretty powerful headache. So by the time we got to the last episode for this podcast we had to turn out the lights in order for me to continue on. Thankfully my friend Jon Madsen was there to help pick up my slack. It was really fun to have an original series cross-over with Leonard Nimoy reprising his role as Spock. Another consequence of our geeking, is that my experiment to reduce podcast length goes right out the window. I guess all I can say is thank goodness we didn't discuss 4 episodes or this might have gone to 4 hours. We almost died recording this one. This podcast covers episodes 7-9 of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season 5.

Various topics discussed in this podcast include:
    JC Hutchins 7th Son Novel
    Keeping an open dialogue
    Term Limits: Good or Bad? (Joey hates Orrin Hatch) (example of the abuse of power)
    Cowboy Diplomacy
    Max Headroom comes to Star Trek
    The Butterfly Effect: time travel problems
    Schrodinger's Cat
