Podcast 32: They Drew First Blood!

So we skipped ahead to the Season 3 episodes that have the same theme of the undesirables of a community trying achieve reunification with the whole (often through terrorism). So three episodes were like that and then we also have a Romulan episode (finally). Thematic! Awesome!

Just don't get too confused because these are episodes 9-12 of Season 3. We have yet to watch episodes 5-8. Those will probably be the agenda next time.

Podcast breakdown:

0:00 -- nuqneH, Terminator talk, Star Trek movie talk
11:00 -- J.R.'s world events (college football)
