G & T Show 160 – Misnumbered Goats In Trees
G & T Show 160 – Misnumbered Goats In Trees is now available for downloading. Check it out here. This week Nick, Terry, and Mike are back with a new episode. They are joined later by Steve for Convention News and George to talk about Starfinder. This week marks the return of the Ask Dayton segment of the show. But, first, we discuss what we have been up to this week along with the new television season for an extended edition of Coffee Clatch, Star Trek: Starfinder episode two, Balance, in our fan productions segment, the latest happenings in the Trek Universe including Movie rumors for Star Trek News, our Supplemental Log with Al Rivera tops out our Star Trek Online segment, and the latest Convention News for STLV, Destination Star Trek, and the Great Allentown Comic-Con.
During Coffee Clatch, we discuss our respective weeks which had Terry and I talk about the stories we’ve worked on this week. Terry considered Mike’s story to be weirdly entertaining, while Mike helped Terry with Star Trek math for her story. Nick shares his recent experiences at a Mall kiosk where he encountered for the first time a Goats In Trees Calendar. We talk about goats in trees for a bit before we start talking about the new television season including: Orphan Black, The Black List, Agents of Shield, Sleepy Hollow, and Gotham. Nick talks about ratings and how the process works, which leads to a discussion of shows created for online services such as Netflix.
Terry moves us along to Star Trek News, while Nick searches for an article. She begins the segment with the three part interview with Nicholas Meyer for Star Trek.com discussing his book, A View From The Bridge. The Washington Post reported that someone for NOAH tried to use Star Trek: Into Darkness as a team building exercise. Nick chimes in and sets the record straight. Terry keeps the show moving by announcing that Shatner had been approached to appear in Star Trek 3. We discuss the subject and speculate what this could mean for the third film and what role Shatner could be playing if he returns as some character other than old Kirk. Mike hopes that it is Kirk’s uncle. Terry talks about Sleepy Hollow and naked Ben Franklin.
Nick interrupts Star Trek News to reveal that he has found the article he was looking for and shares it with us. From Cracked.com, 5 Shows That Get More Praise Than They Deserve sparks a lively debate in the chatroom regarding the various shows listed in the article, especially the inclusion of Doctor Who in the list. The other shows mentioned in the article include The Big Bang Theory, True Detective, Orange Is The New Black, and The Walking Dead. They discuss each show on a one-on-one basis.
Jen Usellis drops by the chatroom, which prompts Mike to admit that he has a crush on her when he once again encouraged our audience to support the Kickstarter and help her include Pat Benatar‘s Love Is A Battlefield on her upcoming album. Terry returns us to Star Trek News with the announcement that LCARS wallpaper is available for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. She moves us along by sharing an article from the AV Club with a beginner’s guide to Star Trek. She then, tells us about the passing of Don Keefer who appeared in the TOS episode, Assignment Earth. Terry got her first Loot Crate and shares with us all of the goodies it included. She uses it as an opportunity to discus the Classic Sci-Fi Mystery Vinyl Figures and their Spock with Lirpa figure. Nick is excited to get his copy of Alien: Isolation, the game taking place within the Alien universe.
With our guest waiting in the wings, we decide to move along to the return of the Ask Dayton with issue 105 – We Dare To Talk About Vanguard. Before getting to it, we congratulate Dayton Ward for deciding to become a full time novelist. We are happy, excited, and scared for him. With that, Nick reads this week’s Ask Dayton. This installment asks if there are any characters that died in Vanguard that he now wishes he could have saved for use in Seekers. If you’re a fan of the Vanguard series, you don’t want to miss Dayton’s response. Afterwards, Mike poses the question, which Vanguard character would we want to see them bring back for Seekers. Terry asks which of our own characters we would like to bring back from the dead and Nick and Mike spar a little bit.
Terry moves into a Convention News update with the latest news for STLV. John Putman will be providing a panel on the 20th anniversary of Star Trek Voyager. We announce that we have been granted a press pass for Destination Star Trek London. And speaking of which, MidNite Shadow joins the show with an update of the latest news for the convention. The newest additions include the CBS Action stand, the Maskarade, and the Beyond Earth Screening. Steve is looking forward to meet other Trekkies at the convention. We are hoping that he will be giving us a live report from the convention next week. Nick reminds everyone that he will be attending the Great Allentown Comic-Con and gives us a quick update on the comings-and-goings at that convention.
We shift the conversation to Star Trek Online. We interviewed Al “Captain Geko” Rivera Saturday for a Supplemental Log and covered everything we can expect to see in Delta Rising, including a few exclusives that will be introduced later next week. Crafting, the new expanded skill tree, the gear upgrade and ship upgrade systems, the PVE queue revamp, the ship mastery system, the Intelligence bridge officers, and so much more. You don’t want to miss this interview.
Finally, we move on to our discussion of Star Trek: Starfinder’s second episode: Balance. George joins us for the discussion. We talk about the show, the second episode, and our current work with episodes 3 and 4 Gorn of A Different Color (Parts 1 and 2) that we are producing for Busy Little Beaver Productions. The story was conceived by Ross, written by Mike and Ross, directed by Ross and Mike, and edited by Mike. Mike plays the teaser scene from episode 3 & 4 during the show. Nick and Terry enjoyed the teaser. Nick started doing a new bit for Klingons of Long Island.
Support the Klingon Pop Warrior Music Kickstarter and help Jen Usellis give us the Klingon version of Pat Benatar’s Love Is A Battlefield. Nick reminds us that Starship Faragut’s kickstarter is drawing to a close as well, so support that kickstarter as well. Also, G & T Show’s GoFundMe Website Upgrade Fundraiser is still ongoing. Please share our link, donate if you can, or purchase from Amazon using our link. Mike is reminded about the Trek Who’s Who Twitter Stalker page on Facebook that our Social Media Director Jespah created for us. Check it out from our Facebook page. Mike thanks her for live tweeting the show and for all of the work she has been doing for us getting our Social Media in order.

He is the co-owner of Busy Little Beaver Productions and is the producer and co-host for G & T Show and Gates of Sto’vo’kor. He’s directed voice actors, and produced and edited audio podcasts and dramas because he doesn’t have the face for video.

If he wasn’t working on something with a half dozen other projects waiting in the wings, somebody please check to make sure he’s still breathing.
During the day, he’s a mild-mannered computer repair man who dabbles in web design in his small, rural, Central California community. He lives with his lovingly dysfunctional family and loyal canine companion and spends most of his time in the closet concocting some hair-brained scheme or another. He’s got an unhealthy obsession with Lego video games, Klingons, and Star Trek Online that borders on the neurotic.
Despite all this, he still finds the time to write the words. Find out what he's doing here.
