TBTN 70: Stocks, Bonds, and I-ROC Zs
We genuinely can't figure out what Gul Dukat would drive. He's too complex to distill down to a single car.
55 minutes | Jan 21, 2021
TBTN 69: The book is called "The Wealth of Nations"
Josh can't remember the title of the most notorious book in (neo)liberal economics, which really sets the tone for this discussion of property rights.

TBTN 68.9: Seeking joy in a ceaseless void
Things got off the rails but it seemed appropriate, given the attempted coup and all. It's a scary world, find some comfort with us.

TBTN 68: The Hauer Power Hour with Billy Farts
Discovery Season 3 is Actually Good. That's it. There is no joke. If you (understandably) got turned off by season 1 & 2, check out season 3. And hey kid, grab yourself some cubed meats.

TBTN 67: How much latinum for ear pics?
Andorians, those fun blue folks with antennae? They're not supposed to have ears, but sometimes they do. And when they do... We're also drinking deep of wisdom of Jeffrey Combs this episode.

TBTN 66: Into the Clancyverse
Oh, I'm sorry - you thought this was going to be about the Klingon High Council? No no no, it's all about Tom Clancy and Chris Isaak.

TBTN: A Very Special Insurrection
With friend of the show, Jesse Balzer! In honor of Thanksgiving, we're covering the TNG movie Insurrection, because it's about the forced relocation of peoples at the hands of a hegemonic power. Above all else, remember: Mr. Baaku, may I?
63 minutes | Nov 18, 2020
TBTN 64: Wesley Crusher & Big Shrimp
We tried talking about mundane things on the ship, but all we got was Makeout Point, cigarette burns in the battle bridge, and Big Shrimp.
54 minutes | Nov 11, 2020
TBTN 63: Behind The Neck with Gul Skrain Dukat
See it's like Behind the Music but it's the Neck.
53 minutes | Nov 5, 2020
TBTN 62: A Brighter Tomorrow Where Counting Votes Isn't Controversial
Election Special live from Skrain, AL! We talk about how the Federation, as a government, functions.
64 minutes | Oct 28, 2020
TBTN 61: Dr. Crusher's Pretty Good Weed
Who is Doctor Crusher, really? Turns out she's a good doctor, an ok-to-middling mother, and an expert botanist. Too bad Picard stabbed her husband with a Nausicaan. Follow us: @TrekByNumbers

TBTN 60: Riker's Holo-Daddies
Riker is a tragic character:daddy issues, low self-esteem, and a prisoner of his own libido. He can't make real connections or friends, even though he's surrounded by colleagues that respect him. It's a sad tale, told by idiots; full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
79 minutes | Oct 14, 2020
TBTN 59: Barclay's Musketeer Kissing Program
Barclay. What's that guy's deal? He seems nice, at least. Does he get a happy ending? We turn to the "beta canon" novels to find out.
55 minutes | Feb 17, 2020
TBTN 58: Miles Does a Violence
Miles sure loves yelling at babies. Ghosts have taken over the bodies of 3 officers (androids are susceptible to ghosts?) and want only to escape their eternal imprisonment and torture. Picard says "lol, no" and that's that. But yeah, Miles holds his family at gunpoint in a surprisingly smart script that is hampered by Insecurity Violence.
48 minutes | Feb 10, 2020
TBTN 57: Honor Among Nick Tate
NickTate.com is here to put in a delightfully heartfelt performance in a very stupid episode of DS9, so turn off your brain and enjoy NickTate.com's performance as Miles, working as an intelligence asset with the worst handler ever, befriends and betrays the Loneliest Mobster.
43 minutes | Feb 3, 2020
TBTN 56: How long until Picard becomes elderly abuse?
There's some new Trek on the horizon, and it's.... kinda good so far? At least the first episode is! We unpack it, we throw out some brilliant ideas (Alex, call us), and we say stupid things.
65 minutes | Jan 27, 2020
TBTN 55: Miles Yeets Molly Down A Well
We did it, everyone. We made it to The Episode We Always Make Oblique References To. The one where Miles O'Brien hucks his daughter through a time vortex, and also yells at a baby. This also begins our examination of the Life and Times of Miles Edward O'Brien.

TBTN Back At It Again
Hey, how are you, huh? How were the holidays? Did you go to your aunt's..? Oh, I see. Yes, nice to see other parts of the family too. Oh, me? Well...

TBTN 53: The Wrath of Khan, pt2
It's more Khan, bay-BEE!
50 minutes | Nov 18, 2019
TBTN 52: The Wrath of Khan pt1
Part 1 of the Thanksgiving Special is here for you with return of friend-of-the-show Joe. It's The Wrath of Khan, the one legitimately good Star Trek movie. And it's such a treat. Enjoy and thank YOU for listening.
