G & T Show 27 – The Purple Flute Giggles
The G & T Show Episode 27: The Purple Flute Giggles is now available for download. Get it here. In honor of the quickly approaching release of Star Trek Online Free To Play, this week they discuss which Star Trek episode they would like to see turned into a Star Trek Online mission — the full list of episodes will be included later. Ask Dayton #13 – About the Captains has been released.
Teri begins the show with the announcement that she is now an editor for Airlock Alpha and is now involved in their bi-weekly podcast, Alpha Waves Radio. The conversation shifts towards football. Teri’s team, the San Francisco 49ers won their game, while Nick looked forward to watching his New York Giants game later in the day. Nick shifted the conversation to Industrial Light and Magic throwing in easter eggs into JJ’s film and pointed out that the Millenium Falcon made an appearance in First Contact.
Before moving on to the new JJ Abrams Star Trek movie, they remind everyone to support Mary Czerwinski’s bid to Make Me Dehner. Principle filming has begun! Then, Nick asked Teri for a Star Trek Reunion update. The project has been delayed once again due to technical issues involving a recent demorecord bug, but apparently, a work around has been found. With that, they move on to Star Trek Las Vegas and all the new people have been added, including: JG Hertzler (Martok), Robert O’Reilly (Gowron), Connor Trinneer (Tripp), Dominic Keating (Reed), Steven Culp (Major Hayes), Martha Hackett (Seska), and many others.
Nick provides us with his plans to attend Shoreleave 2012 just a few days preceeding STLV. But before that, he will be at Farpoint 2012 on Febuary 18th, where he will be interviewing authors: Keith RA Decandido, Michael Jan Friedman, Bob Greenberger, and others. After Nick gets emotional and mentions the friendships he had developed with the audience, they move on to this week’s Ask Dayton #13 – About the Captains.
On the heels of the Ask Dayton, they moved on to this week’s topic, which came out of Star Trek Online’s Community Manager, Brandon Felczer: Which Star Trek episode would you like to see turned into a Star Trek Online Mission? Before beginning their list of favorite Star Trek episodes, a severe case of the giggles usurped the conversation. In order to get over it, Nick announced that he began watching Voyager with the intention of beating Teri to the finalle. And so the race begins. Who do you think will make it to the finalle first, Nick or Teri? Finally getting back on track, they finally began their discussion with Enterprise and continue through the series in order.
