From The Speakeasy:
The doc is joined byas part of their continuing voyage to boldy go where no podcast has gone before and put the needs of the two above the needs of the many. Last time we left the crew limping away from the Genesis planet where they left Spock’s body and the movie picks up pretty much where we left it. Join us as we discuss topics such as the amazing broadband connection that Spock’s fingers give him, Trek’s take on the Cantina scene, Kirk’s pin-code and many other things. So fire up the transwarp drive and we’ll meet you on the steps at Mount Seleyah!
Join me as I join the Doctor again for our third trek! This is the one where Spock is reborn, and McCoy carries Spock’s mind alongside his own mind, and Sulu changes clothes at inappropriate times. We examine the ideas of Vulcan mind transfer, naked racism in the Federation, and the meanness wrapping reborn people in their own death shrouds.
We also discuss whether or not McCoy almost accidentally picks up an alien prostitute, whether or not Scotty is basically R2D2, and whether or not Kirk answers Spock’s question honestly when Spock asks “The ship safe?” And along the way, you’ll learn which scientific discoveries the Doctor condemns as dangerously unpredictable and why my first sexual experience was like Spock’s.
