G & T Show episode 26 is now available for downloading. Get it here. This week they discuss a variety of topics, that spiraled out of control into porn. Throughout the show, they experienced some inexplicable beeping technical difficulties, but that never stopped them before and it didn’t this week either. They begin their show with a new intro for season 2 of the G & T Show.
Proudly, they announced that the G & T Show will be aired on Trek Radio during obscene times – that’s Midnight Pacific, 3 AM Eastern. Nick has finished rewatching Enterprise seasons 3 & 4. They spoke about it briefly, before a squirrel crossed their path and Nick told us about a dream he had that featured the Borg encountering the the aliens from Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel movie, Prometheus.
Nick shares with us his recent loss of a fellow soldier. We send our thoughts and condolences to his family and friends. Teri takes a moment to briefly recap her highs and lows from 2011, and looks forward to great and prosperous 2012.
The Star Trek Las Vegas Update followed. Only 213 days until STLV! They tell us that Avery Brooks (the Sisko), Aaron Eisenberg (Nog), Armin Shimmerman (Quark), and Jeffery Combs (Wayun et al.) will be joining Ronald D. Moore and others at Star Trek Las Vegas. They also explained that Gold packages have sold out and that Captain’s Chairs are now available.
From there, they thanked Warp 11, a Star Trek-inspired rock band, for allowing us to use one of their songs in the show’s new intro. Star Trek 2 News was next, with the announcement that Felicio Del Toro is out of the movie, and Benedict Cumberbatch from the BBC series, Sherlock, is the new lead villian for JJ’s next Star Trek movie. Nazneen Contractor and others will be in the movie. Bruce Greenwood will return as Pike, and the movie will feature post-production 3D.
They briefly celebrated New Mexico’s 100th birthday before moving on to the first of this week’s Ask Daytons. Ask Dayton #11 – Dayton. Accept No Substitutes. Feel free to check out Dayton’s Blog. While Teri attempted to identify the source of the beeping, Nick shares his disappointment at the lack of entries for his Kill Terry Shull Contest and sings for us. Yet, despite her valant attempts, the beeping remained. Nick’s contest has been extended to the end of the month. Also, Teri’s Fan Fiction contest is still going on. So get your stories for Nick’s and Teri’s contests posted today!
Nick shared with us the first book that he has read on his new Kindle: Romulan War: To Brave the Storm. It brought about a discussion of the rumored end to the Enterprise era novels. Then, they announced some interviews that will be coming to the G & T Show during 2012, such as Michael A. Martin and Larry Nemecek. Speaking of Larry Nemecek, support his Con of Wrath.
This week’s second Ask Dayton followed. Ask Dayton #12 – A Klingon, A Romulan, & An Orion with a Tribble. It reminded Teri of a new Sci-Fi Brothel opening up in Las Vegas soon. It stirred up a pletheora of comments from the chat room. Teri steered the conversation to a new Star Trek Forum dedicated to Mirror Universe stories. It’s the mirror universe, it’s a bit more racey and good fun with interesting slash fiction.
Nick, then, tells us about the Podcast Princess’s new gig at Massively reporting for Star Trek Online and defends her from some of the criticism that she received for her recent article. Teri explains her position and attempt to remain neutral in her reporting. Give the article a read here. It allows her to talk about Star Trek Online’s Duty Officer system and explains why STO can’t make a Duty Officer App for smartphones – licensing issues with CBS. However, it never hurts to speculate, so what would you be willing to pay for such an app? Tell us about it on our forums. Nick and Teri have a discussion with the chatroom over the question: If you got to go to the Guardian of Forever, which way would you go? Backwards or Forwards? Post your replies on the forums here.
G & T Show’s Book of the Celestial Temple is still Tales From the Dominon Wars. They will be discussing soon, when they can schedule time with Keith R. A. DeCandido to come back on the show to discuss it with us. So pick up the book if you haven’t yet and stay tuned.
Nick announced that he’s downloaded Christopher L. Bennet’s ebook-only Typhon Pact novella The Struggle Within. However, he hasn’t started reading it, yet. Right now he’s reading The Overachievers by Alexandra Robbins. They discuss it briefly before moving on the Teri’s Voyager watch. Finally, they reminesed about STLV 2011 when they announced that the bar, McFadden’s has closed down.
This week’s announcements once again mention Mary Czerwinski’s Make Me Dehner and the new Sally Kellerman video. Armin Shimmerman’s Sublime and the Beautiful has reached their crowd-source funding goals. They revealed that they are currently working with Trek Radio in co-sponsoring a vendor’s booth at STLV. Before closing this week’s show, they reveal more of the authors that they are looking forward to interviewing this year, including David McIntee, David Mack and a roundtable of Star Trek Vanguard Authors. Also, since there are lots of new books being released this year, if you have questions for other authors, feel free to email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll try to have them answered on our a future show.
