Ep 73: Nice Implants (S3E26)

| 0 comments

When a hot shot young commander starts angling for Commander Riker's job, it is fortuitous timing that Captain Picard gets kidnapped by the Borgs. The newly-promoted Riker plays it cool while doing everything he can to get him back, but when Picard shows up on FaceTime with some gaudy new implants, he decides to end their relationship. What is the Borgs' target demographic? Is Commander Shelby giving off Ivanka Trump vibes? Does losing Picard qualify as "acceptable losses" to Worf? It's the episode where we do an unnecessary Indiana Jones roll!

Hi Friends!
We've got a wonderful episode for you! We have a great Dogs We Met This Week where we contemplate why all dogs aren't named Hamilton. We've got a Mutt Minute on the Shiba Inu where we contemplate whether or not they are half cat. Finally, we've got an important message to Animal Planet. Help us get on Puppy Bowl! Please let us know your ideas for our hashtag! Frankly, we're shocked they haven't asked us already.

Thanks for listening!
