G & T Show 31 – Where’s the Beef?
G & T Show is back this week with a short episode. Check it out here. This week Teri is away dealing with family issues. While she’s away Nick has taken over and quickly runs through this week’s topics, including a new Ask Dayton some Star Trek 2 news, and a Star Trek Las Vegas Update.
Nick begins this week’s show by mentioning that Teri is dealing with a family issue and couldn’t be with us this week. She will return to the show next week. Last week, they took the weekend off to spend time with their families for Valentine’s Day weekend. Then, he tells about his week and some of the health issues that he had been dealing with. But he’s feeling much better now thanks to our sponsor, Vulcoden.
Moving right along, he moves into this week’s Star Trek Las Vegas 2012 Update. Preferred Tickets have not been released yet, but are coming closer. Tim Russ (Tuvok) will be there. The Patrick Stewart announcement has not been made yet.
Next on the agenda is Star Trek 2 News. He mentions in passing that there’s been several interviews discussing how well the new cast members are working together, but nothing has been revealed about the story yet.
After lamenting the loss of his co-host for a moment, he tells us about the Christopher L. Bennett Myriad Universes novella in Infinity’s Prism that he has finished. He’s enjoying the story, but is having problems with the lack of consequences that the universe is presenting through its stories. Although, he’s looking forward to reading James Swallow‘s novella, he admits that he has set the book down to read two non-Star Trek Books. The first book is All In: The Education of General David Petraeus, and finds it a fascinating read. The other book was given to him for Valentine’s Day, so he’s begun reading The Hobbit and plans to read not only the Lord of the Rings Triology. Technical Difficulties interrupted his thought as he informs us of his plan to also read the Harry Potter series once they are released to the Kindle Store.
In book news – Dayton Ward announced that he has received the Author’s copy of his next book. Also, David Mack’s new Next Generation Triology, Cold Equations, will be coming out soon. This leads him to this week’s Ask Dayton #16 – Core-Bound and Down.
On a side note, he mentions Chris Pine being sued by his former talent agency and the fact that he only earned 1.5 million with the recent Star Trek movie. He, then, reveals, their intention to discuss the animated series in an upcoming episode of the G & T Show, so stay tuned. Mike (aka. Soriedem) pops in to give him a hand, before announcing the winner to the Nick’s Kill Terry Shull Contest. We would like to congratulate Lanny77 who won a caricature of himself with his favorite Star Trek character by reknown Star Trek Comic Artist, David Reddick.
Finally, he puts an end to this charade and brings the show to a close. Before concluding this week’s episode, he sends get well wishes to Teri and Allan. We wish you a speedy recovery. He goes on to mention that as of yet, he has not played the new Star Trek Online’s featured episode: The 2800, but intends to soon. Finally, he tells us that he’s on the road to recovery.
