Podcast 26: Finally! Young Furry Love


We can't believe this. The podcast is finally airing! It all started a few weeks ago, when J.R. was using an mp3 player with a horrible voice microphone on it to record the show. After spending a week trying to upload the files using Vista, he finally gave up and MAILED the player to Jon (just after recording next week's podcast). So apologies for taking so long. We only covered four episodes, but spent lots and lots and lots of time discussing them (and a bunch of other crap that has nothing at all to do with Star Trek).

Btw, since we recorded this so long ago, we were unaware of the recent spew of support we've gotten in iTunes reviews. We may have mentioned something about nobody reviewing us, but that's obviously untrue. Thanks wicked hard for all the iTunes reviews people! They'll help you get to Heaven.

From wikepedia:

In "The Measure of a Man", Data is legally declared an autonomous individual, as opposed to Starfleet property. Dialogue in the episode also establishes some of his performance statistics: his storage capacity is stated as "800 quadrillion bits" or 100 petabytes (88.817842 pebibytes), and his processing speed is stated as "60 trillion operations per second" or 60 teraflops. It is also revealed that by this time Data had earned the Starfleet Command Decoration for Gallantry, Medal of Honor with clusters, Legion of Honor, and the Star Cross.
