"Your sensors are correct. Do not adjust your heading you've discovered the Omega particle stream back to the alpha quadrant and Beyond Beyond here's your house the Anchorman of the Federation the doctor of the lithium. This is Jonathan began. That's right. Welcome to the Omega particle. I am your gracious and humbled host today Jonathon weekend here at you on the opp. You know me. It's OPP and we are starting our Discovery season 3 reviews crazy time went straight from Lower decks right into Discovery. I think it was like 28 something weeks of a trek straight track or something like that. They were advertising before lower decks and Manda didn't skip a beat em, so I'm I'm excited and after watching that first episode just a little hint really impressed with the direction and the identity that they have established for discovery for disco. So just a quick house notes about the upcoming Round Table episode. There is some scheduling conflicts with said members. So we actually had to be pushed it back a week will be next week when it comes out. So I'm going to move up my spooky episode up to this week. So we'll this weekend. So you guys will be seeing that in for just in time for Halloween give you something about a week before the the spooky holiday gets here. I mean, we have like four guys coming on. So it's going to be it's going to it's kind of hard to do schedules cuz we're all across the country. Thanks Technologies. So moving on I don't really think there's any news I kind of scan and looked all day yesterday and today and haven't really found anything. So I don't think there's any news I think up in turning out some campus Savage back to back to back but nothing's really has broke in the Star Trek World. However, we're going to get right into the review today because it's a hefty one and unlike lower decks wage, which they Route 22 minutes long an episode and you could kind of just okay, you could talk about it and move on you can group them to to 3 to a review on the opp podcast, but I'm not going to.

"Your sensors are correct. Do not adjust your heading you've discovered the Omega particle stream back to the alpha quadrant and Beyond Beyond here's your house the Anchorman of the Federation the doctor of the lithium. This is Jonathan began know it's pronounced Chronos Chronos. You spell with a Q. I don't make this up. It's anyway. Sorry, welcome to the Omega particle. I am your gracious host Jonathan weekend, and I was just talking to my podcast assist. We're talking about cronuts because today is the Klingon part 2 episode finally diving back into Klingon lore and history we kind of went away from it a little bit. We had some fun job. Bringing on some guests and then I'm doing lower decks reviews, but now we're getting back to the Klingons getting back to Worf and doing what we do best on this show bring you the best news and the top top content. Anyway, welcome to the podcast guys. I happy to be back again almost all the way. And so I'm excited. And yeah, I'm really pumped announced. I'm going to do like a spooky episode right before Halloween talking about the top 10 horror episodes of Star Trek and there are a lot surprisingly a lot of voyager's on that list. So I'm already starting to do research and show prep for that. So it's really fun a really enjoyable today. I'm joined by my friend Flint a grand Reservoir a Havana Edition. It's a nice little cigar nothing heavy or bold but it it's it's as nice smooth flavor. And if you're not in the cigars, you still wasted 30 seconds of your life. Yeah, so I'm going to touch into a log. A bit of news today just because everyone just needs to put on some seat belts before we get into the Klingon episode and I am of course talking about the man of the hour. Avery Brooks. Yes. There's been a huge rumor that Avery Brooks is going to come back and has been Benjamin Sisko from DS9 and he's probably going to be a Picard appearance or he's going to it's just.

"Write me on instagram at all major podcast or on twitter at Omega Particle underscore and I'd be happy to talk with you guys again. Let's move onto episode three of lower deck's. So this episode temporal edict. The kind of tease me at the beginning and I didn't like it. They were like higher. We're going to go to this peace mission with the Kardashians I was like Oh awesome. See the Kardashians after the dominion. More. NEW WE'RE GONNA. Go to Balkan and I was like man I really like pull the bag over my head because I got all jazzed up about the Kardashians and then now it's wet blanket time. Again. Not Just fancier raising I want to hear some good actual meat, just not a little plugs like that. But one of my biggest. And if it's hypocritical for me to say this, then just so be it. But one of my biggest pet peeves of this whole series ovar is comes in this episode and Captain Freeman after she gets the news of the Cerritos is going to go to Vulcan instead and Now Balkan I'm sorry his GonNa go on the gift delivering mission instead of. Going and dealing with the Kardashians, she starts trashing the ship while on the bridge were joke nobody takes us seriously this is awful and to me because I don't know if you knew this, I wasn't ROTC for four years. I was super close to getting into the Air Force Academy and in a lot of summer leadership training courses like that throughout those four years in high school and so one thing I always remembered it was taught is that if you are in a leadership position, never trash the organization or anything like that in front of subordinates. And then starfleet is almost a quasi twenty, four century military to me. I was like this is super bad and maybe because you're a terrible captain, you're doing this. Erdo. So I that really irked me because it's one thing to have those feelings and convey that to your first officer in the privacy of the ready room. It's another thing to do openly on the bridge in front of everyone to be like they consider as jokes. Now I know it's a kids. Chiro and I know I said don't take it so seriously and was enjoy but stat. Irked me to no. End. Anyway one of the best things though going I mean come on, could you see Picard doing that? Could you see Cisco doing that WHO's the any of the grades doing that? Absolutely not like there's a difference between disagreeing with starfleet headquarters and being rogue cowboy diplomacy another running out being upset I'm okay I'm done I'm not. I'm done. So now we're gonNA move onto what I call the greatest piece. Of Career, advice I've ever gotten and it comes from, of course, none other than Scotty himself. Also fun fact about Scotty is that if you want the original series episodes and even the movies he.

"Happy to have such a long hiatus but while understood because we want people to be safe insecure during this pandemic and not do anything rash. It's GONNA be some time before we get any new track but we still have time to go on and A. I still need to go through the short tracks. Haven't been through them yet on. Cbs All access. So there's still a lot of content out there. Don't forget everybody so one of the funniest things that they went through last night and again. I hate to keep plugging this but on the drama in the Delta quadrant episode I did I learned that the crew really like to mess with came all grew during her late night scenes because apparently they would shoot a late night like one two three in the morning and one particular episode. I'm going to give you some back story kind of make more sense why this person was naked. So there's an episode of Voyager. Wear to vox. Who Played Tim`rous Kinda GETS VULCAN DIMENSION. And he kind of loses his capability of thinking and knowing where he's at during this episode. He comes under the bridge naked to do this scene of super late at night. Tim Russ was saying on the reunion one or two in the morning and so he standing on the side by the crew waiting for waiting to go onto the bridge and film the scene K. Mongers doing our thing and apparently even Phillips who plays Knee Lakes and bunch of other cast and crew decided to. I don't know how graphic I want to get here but they decided to stuff the shorts of Tim Rice to mess to mess with Janeway. He walks out on the bridge and he's super I think it was a tube sock stuffed with other socks I want to get graphic but anyway he comes out and it just makes Mauger lose. It was a really touching thing because Masha say that. But it was really interesting insight into how the crew was because I mentioned like sometimes they got moon mulgrew mess monger during or seen so. Actually hearing specifics on one particular prank was awesome. I don't think the T and g cast got that blue with their pranks. But I I think they're just having fun and Definitely can't do that now in two thousand and twenty it's Just a funny inside to see how comfortable they were with each other and seeing that rapport and when they told this story is really funny because then it opens a whole can of worms like how was like. Who's the funniest person on the sad? And Howard the praying and where they kind of going back and forth and I feel like when they ask that question. There's almost like a pressure. Now because the T and g casts set the bar to be like if you're going to be in Star Trek to be fun loving you have to be counted as wild craziness. Everybody be family and I think every crew has lived up to that. I have research but just from my basic knowledge. He everyone gets along and they like to have poke fun at each other while they were filming. They everyone around. The whole entire reunion definitely agree that Ethan Phillips was the guy who couldn't be contained and just always had a good attitude and was always hilarious because even though Jerry Ryan goes into this is that even Phillips and make up for two hours every single day.

"It's just a lot yes pretty much. You saw everyone in the voyager cast and you just lead to some really cool topics and conversations and just a hang out that you don't normally get to see if you've listened to the drama the Delta quadrant episode of Omega Particle. Then you would probably know a lot of these like for example J. rhymes talking about how when she went to the bathroom with whole production has shutdown etc etc. And so if you've listened Opie p than you already know that cutting cutting edge of the STAR TREK universe Information it was other. I'll go into more detail of some stories coming up. I was most surprised at how the cast was so interactive and kind of chummy and Lovey dovey with one another because from the stories I researched and looked up while doing that drama episode. It didn't really seem that way. It just seemed okay. Come to work do your thing. Yeah we have finally pull some pranks but it's not as the level of the next generation cast but boy. I have to stand. Corrected was wrong in that draw episode. I made maybe about a month ago or so. I said the cable grew was dealing with a lot and that sometimes you never know what people are bring to work. And she actually elaborated on that. And when asked what's the best and worst part working on voyager and she said the worst part was when she got the job and she got to be Captain Janeway. Her boys were ten and eleven years old and so she rarely got the same. There's a lot of late night and so she's like I actually brought a lot of that on said unfortunately took it out on some people so like I said before you never know what people are dealing with and that insight. I didn't know that I didn't had I. I don't know that was first time revelation that she announced last night but to me was who's eye opening and say okay see you never know could be a lot could be a lot of things people are going through. I though that was nice insight and moment of vulnerability that normally we don't see through with very famous people but there was a lot of like fun facts. I didn't know like for example Roxanne and Robert. They play Tom. Pairs and the Lana on Voyager. And apparently they have this huge like Broadway background and they can seeing they can dan..

"On your sensors are correct. Do not adjust your heading. You've discovered the Omega particle streaming to the Alpha quadrant in beyond beyond. Here's your host. The Anchorman of the federation the Doctor of lifting this is Jonathan began. Welcome to you mega particle. It's OK P P you know me yes I am your host Jonathan weakened the guiding light for the Star Trek universe in this troubled dime. Welcome to the Omega Particle and yes. We are broadcasting today again on the eastern coast of the United States in my trek recording bunker or as to call it my garage today. I'm really excited about this episode. It's one of my personal favorite hobbies to read about and learn about Got Hooked on college and no. We're not talking about Mario Kart. We're talking about economics and this has been one of the subjects I've had on my bucket lists to cover ever since I started this podcast this past February so I'm excited to dive deep into the economics of the Federation as for now this will just be a one episode into the Federation. I've thought about making more episodes on. Maybe the Klingons Farang e or things like that. But I don't know if it takes off will Possibly do that. Who knows but for now? I'm just going to enjoy the federation because I was Actually having this Google hangouts with some lifelong friends from college and of the Big Trek Fans. There was actually like man. I'm excited for this subject. It seems really cool. Had questions about like Desert Federation money. What about scarcity in the federation o-man hold onto your hats? We're going to cover all that my friends. This will be very depth economic talk. So if you're not used to that To cover it make it. Layman's terms possible. It's really not that complex discovering super big questions like how people work in and do those kind of crappy jobs and no one wants to do in the federation if you don't have to work and how is the signing evolved to the point where They don't have to have money or resources. Have ANY SCARCITY ISSUES? The normally drive economies so We're going to cover all of that today. I'm excited to do so and just remember. You can always reach us at mega particle podcasts on Instagram and at Mega particle underscore on twitter Again thank you so much for following in just keeping up with the podcast means a lot. Yeah let's get into the economics of the federation before. I really dive deep into the economics of the federation one of the ways. I can help us as give you an a kind of a an insight into my economic mind and they've definitely been shaped by people. Like Friedrich Hayek Known Freeman Thomas Soul. Definitely read some piketty to be as well rounded as possible and those to me are some of the Great Economic Minds of the Twentieth Century in the twenty first century. However now we're moving onto the twenty four th century and it's a little change of pace than what we're normally used to hear at a P P but I'm excited to cover it and thank you for coming along for the ride. So basic economics states that we live in a world of limited resources so that creates the scarcity that there's only so many limited things out there pretty much that we have to dictate how their spent and we do that now through currency and money and that is one of the ways that economies are built. How do we deal with this scarcity scarcity issues and there're several we've covered on earth such as capitalistic free market to socialism and Marxism to mixture of Capitalistic Socialist in Europe? That's hot right now. Don't worry we're not going to get super political or dive deep into that or which is better which is worse or anything like that when he came it. Strictly in the twenty four century baby. And we're not gonNA dive into the things that plague our facebook feeds and our twitter feeds news news news. This is For me personally star. Trek is an escape. And that's what it's GonNa be today's well today. We'll be covering just GONNA laid out for some and I mentioned in the intro a little bit kind of how does money work in the federation our goods and services provided for how do they deal with scarcity. Do they even trade? Why do they trade? How do they trade? And what's the philosophy of their economic system like what drives it? What's going to get people to go to work? And those are simple questions. We answered our own economies today. But it's a little bit different when you have limitless resources like They do in the Federation in the twentieth century. So today we're going to cover some clips from a famous. Tng episode and Star Trek first contact. Where Picard is describing life in the twenty th century how they have no need for money how humans evolved out of that. And how? We're better for it kind of just get a foundation first and foremost from captain himself. So let's play that and I'm GONNA to back to back and we'll cover from there. That's what all this is about. A lot of change in the past three hundred years people are no longer obsessed with the accumulation of things. We've eliminated hunger. Walked the need for possessions. Grown out about infancy. Got It all wrong. It has never been about possession. It's about power power to do what to control your life. Your destiny kind of controlled is an illusion. Economic future is somewhat different. She money doesn't exist in the twenty. Th Century money pain BECUA- session of wealth is no longer the driving force in our lives. We work to petro south on the rest of humanity..

"When they were doing production of card they when the episode with the rikers Michael Dorn in the visited the set and so these people are still a super closed in real life. I would not be shocked to see a wharf or laforge comeback into Picard at the same time or maybe separately but it was. It's definitely going to happen. It's just a matter of when and WHO and he even said. Burton goes into while if if Jordan did come back. This is what I would want him to do. I'd want him to be teaching and passing on the knowledge that he learned throughout his career. So those are very specific notions and ideas. That he wants so wouldn't surprise me if it's already in the works However sad news the have been doing although writing cards season two but they haven't actually gone into shooting and they were planning to do it this summer but it's been pushed back to Kobe. Nineteen for safety reasons and I completely agree with that. It's just it's a bummer. Because there may be some big gaps between Picard season one and hopefully discovery season three comes out on time but this is hard to say because of the safety issues with Kobe. Nineteen and social distancing however it is nice to see maybe we'll get some Burton action in the future speaking of Kovic. Nineteen kind of wrecking everything. We're going to start out with some a little bit bad news in rapid with some good news as we finish this relaxed fit episode is that. I'm sure you've probably already heard but comic con. San Diego has officially been canceled. He was originally going to be for the weekend of July. Twenty third through the twenty six and in a I mean I I agree with shutting things down I know that seems super far out but to have that thousands and thousands of people from all over the world is a smart concept. And if you're angry about that I mean it's it's for the greater good and trust me. Nobody understands cancellations more than me personally. I'm a marathon runner and it's very difficult to plan for a marathon. Because you have to have at least three or four months of training all these cancellations of come out and it's like wow. I've just wasted the last three or four months for nothing and I'm registered for the Chicago Marathon. The beginning of October and then one called the Marine Corps Marathon at the end of October. And everybody's gas because it's like they're probably going to be canceled. Should I even begin training? I understand cancellations and how frustrating they can be and then you lose a bunch of money on plane tickets and hotels but there is a little bit of good news out of this. Is that the Convention Center that they've been using for the San Diego. Comic Con has actually been turned into temporary hospital in slash cove in nineteen testing area. So I think that's an amazing use of those resources instead of remaining empty and it's frustrating. But you have to think the quicker we can beat this the quicker we can get back to normal so. I know it's frustrating some bad news. However here's a little bit of good news and to help again kind of in the same vein as the cocktails with Kate is that there are a lot of new streaming services that are coming out with this watch. Party APPS and watch party capabilities one of them is from paramount and they will be holding live virtual screenings of Star Trek to wrath of Con. The closest one will be April twenty fifth through an APP called. Cya Live not cover here. It's called Cya. Live and I think you can pay a dollar ninety nine to be a part of this live streaming and it seems a little much but they are bringing in two special guest host. They are the host of the inglorious experts Whose names are mark. Altman and Darren door chairman and they will be doing a intro to the movie and they're doing a QA afterwards but the cool thing about Cya live is that you can talk and communicate throughout the movie with the guest and then with whoever's involved while watching the movie so it's a cool concept at kind of in the same vein as the Netflix. Watch party. No you haven't heard of this. It's a chrome extension. The netflix came out with that. If you're on a desktop or laptop you can share specific code. Your friends and you can watch Netflix together. In this kind of private room where you can chat and talk about which. I think is totally cool and I need to do that. Because there's so many good Star Trek episodes that I can watch with some of my friends so I encourage people to do that. He doesn't have to be Star Trek but try to watch party together. I thought about doing that something on like an instagram live. Kinda just held the social distancing and maybe not have people seem so far apart and alone so you can do that on net flicks however Amazon prime is starting to work with twitch. Now I've never used twitch before because I'm not a huge Gamer. But they're trying to work out. Some Dior Amazon prime members can use the twitch software to have the same thing. Have the same watch party. Nothing's been announced yet. I think it's still in Beta testing. So if you WANNA be a tester for that I would definitely go to twitch DOT TV if your name is on. Prime member go to their main prime website and see what can be done but but circle back around go to see. Why live two dollars a ticket to watch that wrath? Akon live with those podcasting guys and there are other streaming cons that people are starting to come up with like I think cameo did on April eighteenth they did this massive iconic characters virtual panel and it had of course had Jonathan Facts. And so they had a lot of by common characters. Show up so I don't know if you can go online and watch that. I think it's for Free Cameo but upcoming is that on April twenty fifth and May Second. There is a kind of a virtual. They're calling it a hollow Khan and it's through the lambda quadrant podcasting network. They're going to have special guests. Nicole Day Bauer. She Played Dax on designed for the season. I think it's a neat idea to kind of check in and even though we have to be distant physically doesn't mean we can still interact and attend these quote unquote virtual COMECON panels. So definitely check them out like I said it's on Twenty Fifth April twenty fifth of May second through the Lambda quadrant. So I think that's all the news we're gonNA cover today but let's wrap up this episode and move on. I'm under if I can come cheer up but I still had to find something new in this one for you to recall your wars Freeman. Who so free as of the waves always ready steady boys any real five. I'm recalling out again so I'm in the middle of researching and getting ready for Borg Three while I can't believe it's already been to other episodes and in that episode we'll cover The main meat of all board history mets the twenty fourth century as well as the heavy hitters Captain Picard and Captain Janeway. The main two captains. I've interacted with the board more than anyone as well as a little bit of Cisco he doesn't have a lot but we'll just throw it in there because it fits neatly snugly in that twenty four th century once again if you guys WanNa debate or one comment on the show. Please hit me up at Omega Particle podcast on Instagram. Or you can email me at Omega Particle podcast Edgy. Jimoh DOT COM. Feel free to reach out. It's not like we have anything to do. Our lifestyles are super busy right now. Just WanNa say thank you for listening and tuning has only been a blast. We'll get back and I can't wait to cover our conclusion of the Borg series. Now remember second sort of the right straight onto morning.

"We are broadcasting and streaming to you live from the eastern coast of the United States. And we are happy to be here again to cover another week of Star Trek News now as opposed to last week this week. We actually have a lot to cover A lot of interesting projects that were announced. And I'm actually really excited for one of them and kind of an interesting. Take personally why. This project was developed. But we'll see if it sticks and if it's hopefully it is because I love these guys running this new project but let's get into the relaxed fit episode. Always remember wherever you're at you could be driving new could be at home. Hopefully and if you're in essential worker thank you just Take off those shoes. Dig Up those socks. Stretch up those leggies and relax because today warned is going to have a good time not really worried about what's going on the world outside of us and just focus on enjoying some good old star Trek News. The doctor lithium is in the anchorman of the Federation. And let's start with some news. So how can I get you to fly boys? You See. It's an earth drink prune juice warriors. Drink you are absolutely right and I couldn't be happier. Cork a round of drinks for the House on my tab. Gentlemen find me a mean thing. No it's just the fifth woman to ask me that question this morning all I choir is to sit in the sun. Read my book alone afterward. I really haven't thought that far ahead. So first of this week we hung not we but some people celebrated the four twenty holiday and I am very much on social media with the Omega Particle podcast instagram page and I kept seeing all of these doctor crusher four twenty high means and gifts and I was so confused I was like why is doctor crusher the symbol forgetting high in the Star Trek Universe is. I don't understand it I even like looked it up and try to find the reasons behind. Maybe there's this episode or maybe like where she takes them like mind altering drug and nothing. Nothing I was so I was so perplexed I was like why did the Star Trek mean communities bestow Beverly Crusher as the poster child of marijuana Houston's star Trek I don't know I mean You think about it. She did try to have quote unquote relations with a ghost in one of the TNG episode. So I don't know maybe I don't know it's it's wild so but if you know please let me know Y there. Maybe there's a reason behind it so please let me know. I was fumbled but the some light hearted news very confused by that. Not really into that drug community or drug culture of really. Don't know but I was a surprise. That somebody they picked crusher if anything maybe they would pick reicher because he seems like I mean. He has sex with everything that moves. I was like maybe they would pick pick him but anyway moving onto the big big big story very big shoe today and that is the announcement this week of the Delta Flyer podcast. Yes in the same vein as office ladies. Now if you don't know an office ladies is the actresses that played Pam and Angela started this office rewatch podcast and they go through each episode and they talk about the behind the scenes how it happened little quirks or maybe mistakes that we didn't see before like maybe somebody on the production staff look a cup of coffee or anything random like that and so it's in the same vein is that that. Garrett Wang and Robert Duncan McNeill are launching this. Voyager rewatch series. I think it's the perfect time for this number one. It's voyagers twenty fifth anniversary number two. They're just about to start a documentary on voyager coming out pretty soon we'll cover that in the next Couple minutes now. They're seven years of voyager. Go through and my hope. My honest hope is that it's very successful. And it kicks off. And He makes people fall in love with voyager. I know I'm going to go and re watch the show as they do the episodes and I think I encourage everyone to do that. We gotta help these guys out. Get this thing off the ground however I am terrified that it's not going to last because it's such a tumultuous thing to do is to cover so many episodes when my really good friends shout out to Jason and was like well the content with doing episode reviews it rights itself and that's true however it's just so much it can be overwhelming and kind of. Hopefully the audience isn't turned off so I I know they're gonNA do in a cool special way and I'm excited for that to come out. There really isn't any release date on it. They just launched an instagram page. So I know that in the works right now so Whenever that comes we'll let you know however. Is this like a new trend in podcasting. Because I listened to the office ladies maybe the first five or six episodes I kind of fell off because I just have so many other podcast. I listen to that I was like okay. I'll just chime in when I can but from what I've talked to my friends at super successful people love it. They have great guest host on office lady. So is this a new trend in podcasting? Is this going to be shows? That can be revisited with certain stars I think it'd be neat to see but I just hopefully this isn't just a fad and a trope like I said you're you're signing on for a super long commitment when you're doing that many reviews so and then what happens when the reviews are done and you run of episodes at the end of the podcast or see it's just. I don't know And that's why personally I decided not to do. Series episodic reviews is because yes. There's a ton of content but it's limited and if I mean you're Kinda boxing yourselves in because eventually you'd have to change the entire spectrum entire content of the podcast like if you discover original series and then the three seasons are done. What else you do you move on to something else a Tgi or is not for me. So that's why we structured o p a little differently so moving on like I mentioned a few minutes ago the voyager documentary still in production and surprised to find out that it's being made by the same people that made the D. S. nine documentary. What we left behind and that was a very well. Done documentary loved. It loved seeing what season it could have been four D. S. nine so I'm really curious what they're going to cover touch on in the documentary. there's a previous episode of Omega Particle that we dealt with the behind the scenes drama on Voyager. And they're probably the most drama behind the scene. So I'm sure there's going to be some coverage of that in the documentary however producer. David Zep hone has posted several updates on social media on the previous relaxed fit news episodes. We've covered the Star Trek crews and this is where majority of the filming was done for this voyage documentary simply because they had the entire cast in one central location that they could record those interviews in even record multiple like panels or something like that. It was good idea to do that on the cruise however now I think the shooting is done and they're going into like post production so hopefully we'll get that soon sometime this year. No date Sir Out or anything like that and speaking of wager and speaking of the cast. This is something that's kind of new and just started I don't know if any of you follow Kate mulgrew on social media but Captain Janeway is doing a unique thing to help with the social distancing an isolation that people feel she is actually hosting a virtual happy hour with six fans. Now what you'll do is you'll send in kind of description of how this isolation and how this pandemic has touched your life and how it's changed your view on society and she will select six fans from that. So if you want to submit you can email your story and your perceptions about life and society to cocktails with Kate Edgy Mill Dot Com. And she'll read all the submissions and she'll pick fans who have zoom hang out with her which I think is really neat and I think he's a brilliant way to kind of help with those isolation I think it's every Thursday so follow her on social media and submit. If you have a really good story I think it's cool and I'm definitely going to check those out so with all the voyager news. We're going to go back to some breaking new picard developments which I'm kind of not super surprised about and I think I posted a story. Instagram story about this is that Lavar. Burton is rumored to be coming back now. I think it's a brilliant idea to bring joy back primary source on this is interview. He did with entertainment tonight and he was asked if there was a potential for. Jordy to come back in a car and maybe season to season three and Lavar Burton smartly said. Well I don't WanNa get myself into trouble. Which means is there a secret? Is he hiding something? Very interesting comment normally. If there was nothing he would say. Oh well no of course not. I haven't been approach have been asked but he says No. I don't WanNa get myself into trouble. And he continues and says it's super reasonable to assume that the people are still a part of the cards life. The people that he got close to on the enterprise and that possibly you get several cast members coming back on the card in the future but maybe not all at one time and then he cheekily says well never say never so. I think that's an interesting idea because.

"omega particle" Discussed on The Omega Particle

"Fear should be respected seven. Tommy how many more Gra sacrifice during this experiment? Twenty-nine vessels six hundred thousand drones. But that is irrelevant to me at my crew and after the people who live in this question. I'm going to neutralize this threat. Seven with without your while. Twenty nine vessels and six hundred thousand drones that is a lot in the pursuit of this Omega Particle or VP. They got the board. Got Really close to stabilizing. But they didn't have enough bore night and borough night more like Bora Fil. Sorry and so. They didn't have borne. I got always remember. Keep your status unborn night but this leads directly into this fan theory that I've found on read it and I was like man. This could really explain all of the Borg's kind of shifting tides because they they really are all over the map sometimes a really not a consistent basis like if they were dead set on conquering they would have conquered most of the galaxy. You know they would have just onset completely one by one easily taken over because no one really can stand with them. However we don't see that and there are a few theories why so one of the things the reasons why they don't just straight up conquer is that there's this theory called the kind of quote unquote farming theory and this theory. Is that the borger farming the galaxy in order to stimulate technological advances. And now I mean that is what is presented in the very first episode is that. Oh they simulate technology and that's one of the things they have to do however I mean to me makes the board either super lazy or incompetent. I think that's why they got rid of that. Theory in the T and G and Voyager series of. They're like oh. We don't want just technology when people those very quick change so the farming theories like me because I mean the board don't need to form cultures for technology because they're very much capable of doing their own research are very much capable producing doing. I mean amazing research. I mean look what Seven of nine said about though mega particle. I mean that's boom right there. I mean six hundred thousand drones and twenty nine ships. They have the they have the capability of doing their own scientific research. So saying where it's GONNA take technology for the sake of technology I think is a lazy theory and if the Board are doing this farming theory I think they're terrible at it because there's a lot less societies out there that are technologically advanced as the board. So they're pretty much getting outdated technology and I mean there's even so much they won't like I mentioned last week they won't even touch the Kaysone because of not as advanced as they want them to be so. I think it's kind of like okay like we're again. I think it's the writers and producers getting more acquainted with the villain and having them shift from technology to people and I suggest an alternative different kind of idea is that the bork have advanced like as fast as they possibly could. Something has been slowing them down from all of this. Congress and the time delay has rendered almost assimilating. The entire federation irrelevant. And we know that something likely is slowing them down because what seven nine told us and it circles. Maxing the mega particle in the AMIGA molecule. The Mega particle has significant potential cost to that development. I mean if you fail to stabilize it it will explode but not only explode. It will damage all of sub space in a way that make trans warp impossible. So the entire Borg Omega like Particle Experiments. Were done around twenty one. Forty five as seven describes. But maybe that's why there's still a federation so consider of the experiment happened. Within within a few light years the board home systems. Okay now depending on the power of that Omega experiment he could have almost created a quote UNQUOTE MOAT. That would have a war. Bliss sub space around them and if that surrounding the board power base the unit complex that would complicate expansion considerably. Now I mean of course the board could just slow their way through it and it would significantly complicate and delay their expansion. The damage to that sub space may be bottle-necking the space between Alpha quadrant and the board. So I mean I know Jane. We didn't find anything in the Delta quadrant like that but she also fast forward like a bunch of workspace thanks to kiss in the voyager episode the Gift So of course the voyager cruden exactly finish the entire journey from the delta to the Alpha quadrant so there could be this mode of non-sub space out there that has delayed the board entirely and kind of explains the entire board idea in first contact. You know like okay. Well we can't take out the federation and the Federation now has time to really go after US and develop and evolve weaponry to US would have we just go back in time and take about and that makes perfect sense and I would actually believe with that. So I think with this single bottle necking of the Borg and this continuing research. The mega particle is I mean. Even seven said it was the most important priority priority number one now that we know that the board most important is that Omega Particle then comes with. They ran out of bore night. Maybe they need more born night. And maybe that's why they don't really regard in kind of steamroll. The Federation is that they just they just want to bore night. They're just simply going after the boar night note is an interesting theory because I mean it deals with. Why haven't the board really taking over the galaxy is that there's this bottle necking because of the Omega sub space explosions and also because of their just simply about boar night. I mean I think it's really a simplistic theory. Kind of subscribe to half of that theory unhappy about the bottle necking and destroying sub space in slowing down the board expansion. I think that's definitely it However I don't think they're solely about the born like we're going to go after only the Bourne I we only care about the board night and I'm like That doesn't really fit. And you have to wave off a ton of bork history and Borgwarner action. So I like the theory. That the mega particle experiments really slowed down the Borg and really almost saved the federation. So that's a cool concept and I think it's definitely should be explored maybe in future episodes of Picard or discovery or section thirty one or pike or whatever they whatever they end up doing is that there's a lotta great potential for history and plot the ties directly to the other series of the show. However I think that maybe you don't want to develop too much of the Borg Kazan. It's kind of like it's just about the federation as it is about the board so those are my two cents thousand cool theory and this has been the second episode in the Board series. Thank.

"The first one today is kind of really surprising to me because I never thought this actress would ever want to be in Star Trek or is big trekkie but this person just landed the role of Osaka. Tano now if I butcher that name has because I've never watched star wars the clone wars but Rosario Dawson has expressed interest in playing. Get this queue in Star Trek. Now I don't know how I personally feel about that. Just to be honest because q is always so brilliantly played by John De Lance. So it'd be tough for me to see anybody else play queue or AAC you now. There have been multiple cues like now you had a son and also had a wife so it'd be interesting to me to see what they end up doing with. Q as Rosario Dawson has expressed interest in the cool thing about her is that she could transport through all of the different series so she could be a card she could be in Discovery. She could be pike in so she could. Just Kinda Trans impose on all of these different series of the same time so which I think would be really neat and really cool however to me. She's more of like a grind house. Actress Disturbed famous roles like death proof but She has done great like as the night nurse in the Marvel defender series. So I mean I think it would be kind of almost too much to add a queue in there. And they're even thinking like mentioned episodes back of doing a crossover with all these different star trek shows and doing some back full time travel so I don't think it'd be a great idea to bringing Q. And if you did bring in Q. Just make one If he brought in to card in. It's not John De Lance. I think that would be a travesty. On all account Sir Patrick Stewart and Lance have such great chemistry that to bring in just a new person into that queue relationship with car would just be weird now unlike it. Hopefully you people agree with me. And if not feel free to let me know on instagram proud to say we have over seven hundred followers so big round of applause. Thank you for that and again you can always reach just at Omega Particle podcast. And if you WANNA email me you can always email me at mega particle podcast. Jim Dot Com. We're happy to be. They're happy to debate or happy just to talk either way. Let me know your thoughts on Cue. I think it's I think it's an interesting idea. A cool concept but it could go wrong very quickly very fast moving onto people wanting to stay or get into the star. Trek world is even pack has famously said that he now has drinking drank has drank the Kool aid of Star Trek. And he wants to play. Spock again now. If you haven't watched discovery even peg plays like a younger. Spock that served on Pike's enterprise so I think it'd be cool to have him come on. Pike show it'd be really awesome but especially with how discovery ended in season two. I don't know if that's feasible to bring spock. Back is definitely a possibility definitely with Pike. That show it's just. I don't WanNa get into temporal backflips again. I mentioned with Q I but I do love the fact that he's willing and wants to play. And that's the cool thing about a lot of these actors and actresses like once you are on track. You pretty much set for a really long time. That opens a whole world of comic cons of mean greets of constantly being in the spotlight in some way not as grandiose as like you once were but you always will be welcomed and loved on so. I'm glad he's kind of realizing that feeling that and some actors and actresses don't get that so. I'm glad this guy in this. Prominent spock role is. I mean honestly personally like I really didn't understand making spock in the red angel like I thought it was a cool idea and a concept but it was just I just felt like they just pushed him in there to get spock to be a central character of discovery. And I I mean it opened a lot of cool doors in season two but I'm just not a super huge fan of that second season of discoveries so and I've never done a discovery recap review because I started this last February twenty twenty. So it's kind of all came out way before then so. I've never really expressed my feelings. But not the greatest fan of season. Two's can rebut. It was very good. Don't do too much on spock like I'd rather become almost like a cameo ask in Pike. Pike run the show. Because you don't want it to be all about spot that's a good transition to will discovery versus TNG versus ninety golden age track versus new age of track and Jonathan Fracture. Mentions that in. I think it was galaxy. Con- he had this weapon a Webinar interview and he was talking about how people need to really accept and love on these new star. Trek shows. That are coming out. Napa card is brilliant in discovery is good not as good as the car but it's good and he referenced how when. Tng came on the nineties or early eighties. Is that how so many star Trek people were so against it. Vehemently against this new idea of a new captain and a whole new enterprise in whole new federation and they just wanted the bones. Scotty Kirk Enterprise. And what they got. Was this French English man who liked Shakespeare and first officer who can't sit down normally so and he talked about how much and that was true. I've been reading up on it in researching at there is such animosity towards that first. Couple seasons of Star Trek and what they did is as crazy Nathan so many episodes of TNG so that it kind of changed the structure of Star Trek. So maybe there's some truth that maybe as a fan base we can just kind of calm down a little bit and not Rivera to the T and g days and now the funny thing is. Is that discovering Bakar? The season's coming out now may be revered in twenty years when something new comes out and made my all. It's not like the silver age of Star Trek in the mid two thousand and so I think it's kind of an interesting concept. We need to just calm down and enjoy it. Because there's a lot of times fan bases we don't get a lot of content like I was talking to my wife and she was really into anime and Manga. She told me that a lot of times. Manga may run for books. Five books anime may run twenty episodes. That's all you get. And they don't ever expand it but this is all you get. That's the nature of the beast. That may we got really into one called Cowboy bebop and that really. Kinda made me sad. Because there's like twenty three twenty four episodes in you really didn't get a super in-depth expanded universe like you do and it's good stuff. It's not. It's not crap like if it was enterprise at understand really bad writing but these are great writers in great hits altogether speaking of New Star Trek and one of the things. I've always loved adored and I'm sure many of you out there have as well is how star Trek will always represent or reflect our time when they make episodes in. This is most famously done and the original series when they deal with Vietnam when they deal with race relations and they all do this under the guise of metaphor and allegory. And so I thought it was really well done again in card this season because they had the Romulo refugee crisis in the federation wanted to help. And now in this. It'd be like the. Ussr suddenly didn't exist anymore. All these Russians in the mid eighties. We would have to kind of take care of them. That was really great. Social Commentary. But we've also done it before like in most famously I'm thinking of is the Karazin store in if you've never watched the S. nine as the Cardin scenes were not the not the famous family but the race of the Kardashians were basically this occupying force on Bayshore and they were labor camps concentration camps and the terrible war crimes against the visual and people on ds nine really explore that and it talks about how only like as a Nazi Jewish people allegory. But also as a modern times invading army enforce into a relatively peaceful people but it's great social commentary however and I totally agree with Patrick Stewart on this he didn't interview for the CBC. And he said I do not want a pandemic storyline for this neck for Picard and season to season three. I'm just I don't want it and I completely agree with him. I think we get enough of that every day. I mean there's people out there that have lost jobs have lost loved ones. Were stuck at home self quarantining. So you don't have to tell us you don't have to show us this pandemic on TV because we're living it like we don't need to be reminded in a year. Oh yeah that was really terrible. Remember that so the pandemic storyline and plot lines are definitely going to be flushed out for cheap ratings and and cheap movies and TV shows so we just don't think it's a good idea to kind of follow that trope that will definitely probably becoming in a year or two. I plus Star Trek. Shouldn't I mean we've done episodes like that in the past but for right now no link? Let's focus on something else and escape this pandemic lifestyle that we live now into something different one of speaking of escape good transition one of the best ways to do that is there's this fan out there and he actually edited in all of the bloopers from tng into the original episodes. And so it's it's absolutely beautiful absolutely hilarious. If you haven't seen it definitely check it out. it's something to just kind of pass the time to get a good laugh at and kind of see how they really interacted with one. Another and it's it's fun to see so we've got some time you can YouTube So that really all the big news that I've kind of taken aback by normally these episodes are allow longer but with everything going on. There's not a lot of news so I just brought you kind of the most interesting pieces that I've found over the past maybe week and I know a lot of them dealt with like we need except the new and we need to like be your family. Kinda storylines but I just don't want to trash to the point where you have. Fans being unhappy no matter what happens to matter what they produce hence like the New Star Wars trilogy. Yeah this is my two cents but that has been the star Trek News.

"On your sensors are correct. Do not adjust your heading. You've discovered the Omega particle streaming to the Alpha quadrant in beyond beyond. Here's your host. The Anchorman of the federation the doctor of the Lithium. This is Jonathan weekend. Tail Cool Catholic down there and welcome to the Omega Particle. I'm once again your quarantined host Jonathan weakened and we are deep deep deep in the trek bunker on the eastern coast of these United States. And I'm very excited today to finally start our board series and deep dive into star. Trek's I would argue the best villain all star Trek indefinitely the most Time devoted villain and all star Trek. Hold onto your hats. It's going to be very indepth Probably going to take two to three episodes to cover all of the board INS and outs now. If you've watched he and g you've seen all of the TNG movies than this first episodes. Devlin could probably going to be a rehash for you. You know a lot of this and he may pick up some cool little facts along the way and I definitely learned a lot while researching this villain but if you've never ever watch T. and G. religiously or if you've never seen the movies then this will all be new to you and I know a lot of my Friends and family listen and they're not really track people so this will be new for you guys and just welcome along. It's it's pretty crazy. These PSYCHEDELIC cyborgs. That we call the Borg and Before you get into it has to do a quick shout to the Hemdale Group. Which is our local chapter of starfleet. Which is the largest fan base? They've been so warm and welcoming to me especially during this cove in nineteen time and They've been great. They've sent me a bumper sticker and they Definitely shout out emails social media to listen to a Mega Particle so I definitely appreciative of that and came away to hang out with them in the future but with no further ado. Let's go into the big star. Chac the bork up. Space MESSAGE TO APPLE HASSLE. Engaged before we really get into the meat of this episode. I want to cover just kind of where we're going with the board Today's episode will mainly be kind of a back story of the Borg. How producers and the writers developed this villain why they chose us villain and then going into specifics about who the board are how they operate. How are they commanded and more specific and then next couple of episodes we will be doing? The history of the board and the boar- go from around earliest recording his fourteen eighties. Fourteen eighty four to all the way up to the twentieth century. So we'll be covering that and then also throughout that history time line will be dealing with how each captain dealt with the board. Now they all deal with the board differently. You can say we'll maybe. It was just picard. But no archer dealt with Cisco dealt with them of course mcardle with them Jane Way of so you can really see the differences. In how the captain's approach the board and which ones were successful most which ones were just terrible. So we'll We'll go into that in future episodes but today is mainly diving into who they are how they operate and how they were created. And we're going to cover some creation stories of the Borg and that is one of the most hotly contested and debated subjects in all of the Borg Lore. But before we get into that we're going to get into some back story about the board with T. and G. coming out in the late eighties early nineties. The writers and producers were searching for this new villain and to be the main villain of the TNG series now originally. And if you've seen all teenager you know this it was the Farang and I frankly were portrayed as these kind of greedy and conniving and scheming enemies and they were the original the original ones the original villains for the whole series however it was kind of failed because they were more comical. The main motive was free market and capitalistic ideals. And so that really didn't land is a serious villain because each the franking. Aren't this formidable opponent. Now you may be asking. Why not the Klingons or why not the Romulus and the Klingons of course because of Kima records and launching into piece of those accords as in Star Trek six now with the Treaty of Algorithm? The ROMULUS actually became friendly. And that's the treaty that established a neutral zone now. The the Romulus are kind of the low key Cold War villain of TNG and there's never any direct huge war but they always have the little skirmishes in the neutral zone. The writers and producers were searching for another Dylan and they found them in the board sense. The Frankie kind of fell away and it wasn't a Serious Villain I mean the frame. You don't even get really dive deep and developed until nine when you have cork and Rahm in ego into Franken. The producers writers were definitely more subtle and introducing the board and one of the ways they did. This was in a definitely season to their few episodes one was called Q. Who and the neutral zone and the neutral zone was the episode where The Romney Lynn Empire in the federation were having colonies destroyed them both sides and they couldn't figure out who is destroying because wipe these colonies were just completely wiped out so they couldn't figure out who is destroying these colonies why and it led into this like big ordeal and it was kind of the standoff. Q. Q. Introduces the Enterprise to the Board BY PUSHING THEM OUT. I think until like way past the Delta quadrant and seventy thousand light years away or something like that and so That's how we're initially introduced to the Borg but it's always over so far away. We're not gonNA have to worry about them now. We do have to worry about them. So now that we know why the producers came up with them and how they were sadly introduced. We're going into who the board are and exactly why they are the way they are and this is gets very again if you are a big. Tng Fan you've probably heard this but if you're wanting to get into picard this is a great recap for you from the top. The board are a cybernetic brace. They are of course both mechanical and biological they have both parts. They're stronger than the average human. And come with this. Adaptive Shielding It'll stop phaser fire and you have to have this modulating algorithm in the phaser so that they continually adapt to the shielding and we see that all of the board interactions between Mike and no one. I contact see that done really well. And then also t and g not your average and meeting point you you have to really think outsmart them usually have ocular implants and we definitely see that with Picard. But most famously with seven of nine into me. I've always thought they were kind of arrogant. They really don't pay attention to species there. Fear to them. They really don't care now. This is shown with the KS on now. Have you haven't watched voyager before the KS on our this kind of patriarchal almost wanna say backwater kind of species. Where they're kind of annoying in there. They do more harm to themselves than good. The board actually. Janeway says that they didn't even consider the case on because they were just on fear so to me heir of arrogance about them that we're GONNA bother you in most famously if you on the Board Cube and you don't pose a threat they don't even care that you're there they just simply walk past you. Which always thought was wild. Each board has something called a node which controls all of the other implants in the specific Borg drone. Again as we've seen with seven of nine if that quarter goal node goes bad or is damage. You have to replace it. If you don't replace it that drone will die. They also have like this creepy pasty white skin and almost looks like they're completely been living in a basement for thirty years and haven't seen so and we'll get into that because that's more of a nar probes issue and again like I said we're deep diving. Were going into the meat of the board. Gets YOU FLOAT? He's on where in the D. Ben now so we know that they're cyborgs now. And there's this biological and mechanical race however they have something super unique and all star Trek. His they have a hive. Mind a quote unquote collective. Now this group think pretty much is basically just each joan connected to thousands and hundreds of thousands of other drones so they have this group mindset again and they have this sub space network that connects all of them and it allows constant supervision in constant guidance so the board make decisions as one. Everything happens as one but you lose your individuality in that. And then as the main argument against the board is a whole is that you lose your identity. You lose yourself use everything that makes you a person and you handed all over to the collective so that makes them so dangerous and so fearful is that not only. Are you going to be alive? But you'll be kind of in the Zombie like nature so one of the other aspects of makes them so formidable his it they have this damage regeneration ability there in the space battle and they need to make a repair. The instantly can make decisions instantly can make recommendations insulin carry out actions unlike a starship where you have multiple people and you have to kind of coordinate between that and communicate between that so your opponent now is completely seamless. They can immediately make decisions merely respond. And there's no no hesitation in the forms of war that is a terrifying opponent to go up against so when you engage them in battle that famous line in. We'll play that right here. We'll play that clip here. We go aboard. Ships will add to biological optical distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to serve us. Insistence few Tom. So that's the famous line. We are the board and they always address themselves in the we and with those collective pronouns. Voyager is a great case. Study in great way to learn about the book I would say more than TNG and the tingey movies simply because the board are essential. You see the Board Queen Multiple Times throughout that series you learn so much about them with Nanno probes and how they travel and how they've kind of grown from species that were referenced to as almost they beginning like humans so I if you haven't watched voyager I definitely would recommend it because there's a lot more flexibility with the with the BORG AS OPPOSED TO MT AND G Board. So one of the big things that we learn about the board because they have something called. Nanno probes which are microscopic robotic devices and they are mainly used in assimilation. Now.

"omega particle" Discussed on The Omega Particle

"Her anger and frustration. Got TO JERRY RYAN. Who plays seven of nine and real quick before we get into specifics of this feud I don't know if you've ever watched voyager but one of the main things you notice between the first three seasons and then the last four five six and seven last four seasons is low tonal shift now as we all love. Star Trek there are character developments in in episodes that specifically build one character and they delve deep into their story. And it's great and then they can play that in future episodes in you automatically are caught up and they were doing that they were doing that with Jayco. We saw him with His like native American Pass. We saw him with the Kardashians. And the Ma key and then he had this great McKee starfleet kind of relationship in the first couple episodes for seasons and then he dived deep into Perez and Kim and then blonde a Taurus. So you see all these other characters kind of build up which is normal for Star Trek. That is what they do one of the many reasons why I love the show so with that in mind when they bring in Jerry Ryan that completely shifts tonal shift new show runners new producers and they really emphasize and really Hark on seven of nine the doctor and Captain Janeway they really hone in like I said before supporting cast was already kind of on edge because they got rid of one of their close friends in the actress that played cass. Now they're even more antagonized because now they're getting less screen time and less character development a lot less screen time in a lot less character development in lieu of this new person and these new show runners. That's interesting because I would probably upset too so I don't really blame the Castro anybody on and not saying that they were mean or upset or vile towards anybody like Jerry Reiner came over or the show producers. They were understandably upset about it. Because it's like hey like I thought we would do this now. Interesting fact Garrett Wang who plays and Kim actually requested to do a direct an episode of Voyager and he got denied interesting. He's the only person Star Trek cast member to request a direct an episode and be denied. He's the only one so sadly instant Kim never got that promotion in Garrett Wang I guess never got that promotion. So it's you can definitely tell they they didn't want to take a lot of risk in the later episodes like I said for the ratings so they really kept things in check and really honed in harped on those three characters of seven the doctor and Captain Janeway which in a way may seven of nine when the greatest star trek characters ever because she had such a fleshed out plot. Because all this time. So it's it's a weird dichotomy that it's like oh it's like we're going to give you all the screen time and now you like or one of the best characters and plot characters of all star Trek so. I guess it worked out in the long run but here we are. There is even multiple multiple reports that Robert Beltran the guy that plays to coattail threatened to quit multiple multiple multiple times multi-mm` so he was not very supportive. Are Happy of this whole new edition so all coming to ahead now. The CAST is a little peeved off K. Mauger's a little peeved off and we're going to get into three specific instances behind the scenes that happen between mulgrew and Ryan now. There were a lot of instances that I could have. I could've made this show an hour and a half and just brought up every single fact in every reported case but these three things were chosen because they summarize the whole all of that. I read about so I didn't WanNa waste everyone's time and go through all of these when you've been like okay. The we got the the gist of it. So these three things about to cover are very petty and they are very kind of Like roll your eyes at but multiple sources have come about it and it is true so again take it in stride but he will go.

"omega particle" Discussed on The Omega Particle

"I want to welcome you to this inaugural episode. So we're here and today we are going to cover how this podcast came to be what content we're going to cover and hold on and a quick. Look at our namesake the Omega Particle now as we begin this excursion into podcast excellence. Let's discuss the structure an dare I say the idea behind the show so for me? It's really important to do a weekly sometimes. Even biweekly if live APP pens and comes up episodes of the mega particle simply. Because there's so much going on in trek right now we have card and we have discovery and I would love to do episodic reviews of the new ones that come out. I think that would be a lot of fun. And it'd be great to listen to however what we will not do and a lot of star. Trek podcast are primarily. This we will not do. Episode Broom views an entire series. Now I'm sure many of you like me have seen nine. Voyager TNG multiple times. I've seen probably five times so for me. I really don't care what Matt from Nebraska Things About D. S. nine season four episode to. I mean personally I don't care. I've seen every episode. I know it backwards and forwards. I really don't WanNa hear somebody's review on it so for me. I think you'd be more exciting and more fun to do the newer episodes as they come out week by week. And here's the kicker this is. Uh a structure in an idea that some of my favorite podcasts to and. I WanNa copy that he's an. I'm doing all this time researching when I'm doing all this time. Investing into a podcast. I WANNA do subjects that I need and I think are cool so the first subject now. I deep dive. We are going to do his. I'm happy to announce hold onto your hats. We're doing con. Yes the immortal Khan famously known from the original series spacey and his amazing performance in Star Trek to have gone in my humble opinion. The best movie ever made. And let's not talk about into darkness. 'cause no one needs to know about that so going with Khan. I think that's a great way to start the podcast having this deep dive into a character. Because we don't know a lot about him outside of Spacey Rather Con. We really don't know who he is. How he came to power to put it perspective he ruled one fourth of the planet. Earth during the nineteen nineties eugenics war. How did a child? There was genetically altered genetically engineered. Come from that too brutal dictator. I think that's an interesting story personally. Would want to know about and I think people would wanNA know too so instead of doing a long boring episodic review of series. We've watched eight nine times. We're going to do new subject matter that I haven't learned about before. So yes con will be the first and it's GonNa be real fun interesting. It'll probably be about a two three weeks Series I'm excited about this project and interested to learn more about one of the greatest villains and all of Scifi so one of the main issues I have is on a lot of these star Trek. Podcast don't even finish. They get six episodes in eight episodes in fifteen episodes in and they don't even finish. That's why it's frustrating to me. Because I mean I was getting into deny this will be cool to hear. Maybe like podcast on it maybe. Different perspectives in everything. I found went through season. One maybe season to his kind of fell off and I don't want to run into that trap a previously said. It's kind of boring and it's not new and fresh and willing to bring you the best relevant content in the Alpha quadrant so moving on on how this podcast came to be so. I was super excited when I heard that they were bringing back. John Luc Picard. Because in this series this is the first time we've actually been able to see the future of the federation after the two thousand one two thousand movie we've really had nothing. We only have prequels. We had discovery which is Great. But prequel enterprise which is terrible but prequel so we really don't know how the federation has evolved. Who came to be an are they sticking to their One nine watching Picard with with my wife stormy and she is very supportive and loves to share and things that I love even though she has no idea anything star Trek. I mean. It's very very sweet but so we were watching. I think it was the first episode one or two and they were talking about the the Romulus Cube that they got from the board and had to go deep dive about the Cuban about the board and assimilation and then into the Romulus and into the neutral zone and all this information started coming up and I was like wow this thing I love so much. I haven't really talked to shout Alan. He's been great. He loves next generation however he's never really seen voyager or nine or enterprise or discovery. He's never really expanded his star Trek Canon. So it's really hard to talk about these things on my. Wow did you see what? How portraying the KLINGONS discovery. Or what do you think about the dominion more? And and you think it was decision for them and Blah Blah Blah Blah. And he's net. I really can have that discussion. So how sitting there my wife and I was like you know what would be cool idea be able to talk about on a weekly basis whether character deep dimes or going into specific things. I was like this would be a neat idea to do so. She's been very very supportive. And so now we invested. I'm sitting down in my basement with this makeshift sound proof booth and it's it's been a joy and I love it and the thing that really turned me on about this whole process was the content. Not about the artwork or getting on. I tunes or anything like that. The thing that really made me excited was mount making researching and producing the content. And that's how I think I've stumbled onto something I'll enjoy. I WANNA thank stormy for all her help and encouragement in this podcast creation. I really can't do it without her. Now we all came in for the science and theories behind the Omega Particle. Our namesake and this podcast now. The mega particle is a very highly unstable molecule. And it's believed to be the most powerful substance known to man. It is also believed that a few molecules can power an entire civilization. So people want this thing. People are searching for it. They're hungry for it however since it so violently in stable when it explodes. This is the kicker in destroy up space which makes warp travel impossible. So if a couple of these molecules go off with say in this fruited plane known as the Alpha quadrant sub space warp travel impossible. What would we do? So that's why starfleet gave out something called the Omega Directive and they said if anybody comes across these molecules to destroy them immediately and keep the explosion to a minimum however the only issue is. There's no real proper way to contain the molecule. So there's no way to contain it. It's very dangerous. So that's why starfleet said just knocking out don't even give somebody the opportunity to bring it to a planet or bring it somewhere. They could cause further damage which makes sense so fun fact. Some Federation cosmologists believe in theorize. The mega particles are one of the substances known to the Big Bay in Voyager Seven Nine. Just dismiss that as a creation myth. So but we'll get into that maybe later. If we ever cover seven of nine the first time we see the Omega Particle in Star Trek is in voyager season four episode the Omega Directive Named After Star Fleets call sign for this molecule so voyager comes across Kathryn. Janeway gets the flashing Omega Greek symbol on the screen. Saying you know what to do. Go to the ready room and get briefed. So captain is only information and she decides to share with bridge crew which makes sense doing a situation being in the Delta quadrant so since they now know what to do seven of nine is a Borg. See there's a great boring history with the Mega Park. We'RE NOT GONNA go deep dive into it. But they believe that. The Mega Particle is absolute perfection. And I think twenty eight board vessels were destroyed in trying to contain this molecule and seven of nine even says we had it for like two or three seconds and it was pure perfection in typical Borg language. And I think while that's really crazy to sacrifice so much just for a couple of seconds however that definitely influenced her on the bridge voyager voyager because then they try to make this containment field that can. How's it a couple of seconds and then they shoot a grab a metric torpedo at it to contain these Beaujolais and only limited damage to the sub space. So that's the last time we really see the only time we really see though mega particle in Star Trek Canon. Now there are few like little things like in voyager like Q. Junior comes hey. Let's throw out some Omega particles together and see what happens you know. And then there's a couple more deep dives into the mega particles in the book series. But I'm not going to do that in this inaugural episode we're GonNa Save the deep dives for subjects. I really really WanNa know about and you really really want to know about and if you WANNA do more information please Google all you want on the mega particle so as we wrap up today. I just WANNA go over again. We'RE GONNA try to release on a weekly basis on biweekly. Sometimes and I'll let you know before but I just want to say thank you for listening and being here. I appreciate all the support from my wife storming my friends in looking forward to expanding and conducting this excursion and to podcasts. Excellence also if you have any suggestions for topics that you want to hear or you don't WanNa send. He's whenever debate on this particular issue or person in the Star Trek Canon.
