G & T Show 98 – Klingon Jewish Mothers is now available for downloading. Check it out here. Nick and Terry are back with an all new show. Mike was present to but was still in the midst of his birthday celebration weekend with friends and probably slept through most of the show. Yet they still managed to discuss Star Trek Movie News, STLV Update, and Star Trek Online. Back from his hiatus is an all new Ask Dayton.
I submit unto you the topics of the Prime Directive, extinction, and the first few minutes of the new movie. Terry worships “natural evolution” including extinction as her atheist substitute for God and as a consequence the Prime Directive means we’re always wrong, let the species die, and fuck ‘em. I argue that the Prime Directive is about preserving the intact cultures of sentient species, which logically means that Starfleet should make every effort to prevent their extinction, because if a species ceases to exist, the rest is irrelevant. Your turn…
Dear Poison Fox, You keep getting referenced as an expert on the Rihannsu and I have a question for you. What is the Rihannsu opinion of the Prime Directive that the Federation’s Starfleet has to follow and what is the policy that the Rihannsu on the same basic subject and why? Dear Soriedem, does Gates of Sto’vo’kor have a show dealing with Klingon attitudes on Prime Directive situations? If not, in your own words what were the pre-Federation-Alliance attitudes and if the alliance changed attitudes, how so and what are the modern attitudes and policy on this basic subject and

By Roger Sanderson First off, let me start this analysis by saying that I enjoyed Star Trek Into Darkness. It was exactly what I expect from any action flick being made these days, it was fun, enjoyable, and entertaining. Unfortunately, as seems to be the trend in movies lately, it is fun, enjoyable, and entertaining so long as you don’t think about it. I don’t mean don’t think about it hard, I mean don’t think at all.

A few more people have been added to STLV News, and they

Dear Dayton, The “who would win in a fight” question has been asked many times before. Star Trek versus Star Wars. Hal versus Commander Adama. Lock boxes versus our wallets. In any case, the question is a bit tired. Instead, I present to you the new and improved version, “Who would win in an argument?” That’s right; Star Trek has always been about solving problems with words as well as phasers, lasers, disruptors, bat’leths, or muskets. Don’t ask me about the muskets; I don’t understand it, either. Back on topic, the first pairing I present to you is (drum roll

It’s been several weeks since we had an “Ask Dayton,” so I ask simply, what’s new in the World of Ward? Anything new you can share with us? Also, summer is approaching, so do you have any BBQ secrets to share with us grill warriors? Is there anything you do special when grilling, or any (almost) secrets you can share to help make our time forced…um, happily spent with family, more enjoyable?
