People are still talking about Tuvix after all these years. Say what you want about the episode, you have to admit it made an impression.

I haven’t seen it in probably 20 years.

It would be cool to see another alternate future episode of Voyager where Tuvix lived. With Tuvok’s knowledge and experience, and Neelix’s resourcefulness, he found a way to get Voyager home earlier, and was able to be a key player in negotiating a peace treaty with the Dominion, thereby ending years of bloodshed before they happened. But because he was split back in two, these things never occurred.

I actually thought Tuvix was a pretty forgettable episode.

Looks like a nice line-up this year.

I’ll probably watch it all (though I’m sure I’ll have to watch some later on), but I’m most looking forward to the Prodigy/Voyager with Aaron Waltke, the Hagemans, and Brannon Braga. Should be interesting to hear their discussion, given the connections between the shows.

Also really excited for the Picard, LDs/SNW, and Tuvix panels. The individual spotlights look promising as well.

Oh hey btw, NASA’s Peregrine, which is carrying the ashes of a certain Trek luminary, has reported a successful launch Monday morning, on a Vulcan rocket. But, there’s now a report of this mission to the Moon, the first time for the US since Apollo, has a ‘catastrophic’ fuel leak. Plz remember the mission.

Ah, I read something that the rocket was carrying commercial cargo (in addition to, e.g., scientific instruments) and was wondering what kind of cargo could be transported to the moon.

They should ask Connor why Dominic quit the Shuttle Pod. I’m sure there is some tea to spill.

But over all this is looking very cool.

Wasn’t there reference of Dominic having ongoing health issues some time ago, if that’s the case that maybe why he left

I did not know that. Hope he is ok. If that is the case, I would nominate John Billingsley to replace Dominic, but John is busy with other podcasts. Bummer
