It's a podcast. Nothing personal.
Ah, thanks for the explanation. I was sure I was missing something in your post. Didn't even know that one existed.
He was a bit hyper in After Trek, but I actually rather enjoyed him as the host. He seemed like a genuinely enthusiastic fan, which is pretty cool to have for such a format. I never really got why people hated on him so much either.
The format for their podcast is fun. He is a seasoned fan and Andy has never seen Tng and they approach each episode as TV writers, and the podcast itself is charmingly slapped together without a lot of editing and they are argumentative, dorky bffs. It's the only podcast I actually listen to because they don't take themselves seriously at all. I think people were put off by how enthusiastic he was on TV, and came off as like... a cringy nerd. He hated himself on the show too
I think you should do a podcast. You could call it "0TheWormholeSpeaks"
I would listen to this podcast.
That sounds horrible.
Ugh, this showed up in my recommendations and I was depressed to see how many angry idiots in the comments seriously think that LD took the idea from some random RLM video. This kind of thing always makes me think of the story David Gerrold told on the TAS DVD audio commentary about the kid who erroneously believed he'd given him the idea for "More Tribbles, More Troubles" and thought he deserved a credit on the episode. Of course, if that happened today, a bunch of these YouTubers would probably be unquestioningly taking that kid's side.
People who write comments scare me.
To be fair, that hologram was talking about his own ship, and also he was completely insane. I'm guessing his calculations shouldn't be taken as 100% reliable.
He might have also been referring to "Life Support" as everything that keeps humans alive that holograms don't need.
Things like "Artificial Gravity" and "Inertial Dampeners" and "Non-Physical Radiation Shielding".
I knew the gag w/ the crew at the end was still coming and it still made me laugh way too much
I think this episode had a lot of great jokes, the references weren't intrusive, the crew working together was very trekkian, the beluga vibes were very funny, and I'm glad they're resolving the Mariner/Jen gag that way
The more time goes by since this episode aired, the more I've started to think of it as one of the best episodes of Star Trek ever produced.
