Our “Plucky Kid” month continues with a very special Naomi Wildman episode of Voyager, “Once Upon a Time”! Through the antics of Flotter T Flotter Water III, we discover that children’s entertainment of the future is a dark, dark place.
We continue our silly romp of a month with a silly romp of a Voyager episode, “Heroes and Demons”! This month we watch the Doctor murder a person, as he enters into a recreation of Beowulf with deadly stakes!
Character Death month continues with the departure of our favorite Ocampa, Kes! This week we reveal our (sadly inaccurate) Presidential predictions, spill a full shot on Chris’s couch, and we discover the surprisingly reasoning behind Seven of Nine’s uniform!
We kick up our Drunk Factor a notch in this week’s episode “The 37’s!” Guest starring Amelia Earhart and introducing the rarely-seen Blue Alert, we dive head first into a bevy of off-topic conversations, including our places on the Kinsey Scale, our unrequited crushes on Harry Kim, and how the OJ Simpson trial relates to Voyager landing on a planet!

March is Drunk Trek host Amanda’s birth-month; so this month we’ll be watching a selection of her favorite episodes! We kick the month off with one of Voyager’s great episodes: “Blink of an Eye”. Listen in this week as we discuss the best possible Voyager spin-off, discuss our disdain for plucky kids, and get way too hung-up on the alien prosthetic of the week!
Drunk Factor: 4.5 for Chris and Amanda, “Fuck Me” for Matt.
We continue our month of strange Star Trek sexing with “Blood Fever”! Ensign Vorik is Pon Farring all over the place and infects B’Elanna Torres with his seasonal horniness disorder. Also there are rock people. Amanda, Chris, and Matt try to make sense of these strange new feelings, while trying to avoid veering wildly off-topic.
Our theme this month is Holodeck Mishaps! We finish our Holodeck theme month with Voyager’s take on Flash Gordon, “Bride of Chaotica!” This week we finally remember what class of starship the Stargazer was, we talk about our Voyager crushes, and we get real familiar with Tom Paris’s “Rocket Ship”…
