Two people watch a randomly selected episode of Star Trek and then record a podcast about it. A couple of weeks later the podcast is added to this de-randomized list of episodes.
An obsessed scientist arrives on the Enterprise-D to perform a once-in-a-lifetime experiment. Accidentally released nanites, however, threaten both it and the ship. (Season premiere)
Chip Sudderth, a host of the Audio Guide to Babylon 5 and host of the Two Minute Time Lord, joins Scott to talk about Evolution (TNG S3E1). Wesley is front and center in this episode and that isn’t as bad as you might think. Hungry, hungry nanobots, sabermetrics, and the proper collars for Star Fleet uniforms are discussed. You’ll also find out what costume Scott would dress up in if he had to cosplay at a Star Trek convention.
Data must convince a colony of 15,000 people to evacuate before the aliens who own the planet arrive.
We discuss how impossible the impossible is, how many showers Riker takes during a typical TNG episode, and the very important lesson Data learns about kissing.
The Enterprise must undo the damage when a primitive civilization discovers a Federation observation team and concludes that the Starfleet personnel are gods.

The Enterprise tries to negotiate an end to raids launched by a group called the "Gatherers," but a murder threatens to prevent peace.
Glenn Fleishman, tech journalist and Incomparable panelist, joins Scott to discuss TNG’s The Vengeance Factor (S3E9). A big mystery! Which is solved very quickly. Riker puts it on pretty heavily (though respectfully). And Scott and Glenn talk a lot (too much?) about how the replicators work.
Doctor Crusher is captured by terrorists who want to involve the Federation in their struggle for freedom.
Darren Franich, Entertainment Weekly writer and co-host of the Vidiots Video Store Show, joins Scott to discuss TNG’s The High Ground (S3E12). A lot of time is spent talking about the Trek movies, books, video games, and not so much time talking about The High Ground.
