Episode 52 is online! This week Mike and Barry discuss those small, special scenes that we all love - the hidden gems (or gold-pressed latinum) of Star Trek that aren't necessarily the ones that first come to mind. While "I have been, and always shall be, your friend," "He knows, Doctor, he knows," and, "Mr. Worf, fire." are certainly some of the best scenes in all of Trek, we're highlighting the smaller ones that make us smile, that perhaps make us shed a bit of a tear, but certainly do as much to make Star Trek a memorable and enjoyable series as any others. Do you have some of your own that we missed! Be sure and let us know in the comments or Tweet us @agtpod! Meanwhile, enjoy Episode 52, "The Hidden Gold-Pressed Latinum of Star Trek".

This week Mike and Barry continue their examination of the quixotic "Q", the "next of kin to chaos" in the Star Trek Universe. We look specifically at his appearances on Voyager, his relationship with Captain Janeway and how it differs from his relationship with Picard, and a fascinating discussion of how a supposedly omnipotent, non-aging being can actually have a significant character arc across three different Trek series. Episode 51 is Online, "This Episode is Also Brought to You by the Letter Q" (Part 2).
This week Mike and Barry take a first look at the enigmatic, "Q" - one of the all-time greatest guest characters on Star Trek. Where did he come from, what was his motivation, and where did he and the whole "Q Continuum" fit in the tapestry of Star Trek? We'll track his appearances across all the modern Treks, examine his relationships with our various captains, crew and other Q, and try to break down his "arc" across the series. Episode 50 is online, "This Episode is Brought to You by the Letter Q" (Part 1)
