Standard Orbit 95: Holographic Girlfriend, Holographic Ale / by Trek fm

The Next Generation: “Relics” with Earl Grey.

Sometimes in the run of a show, you pull out all the stops and have crazy guests from other shows. In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike & Drew are joined by the time-shifted crew of Earl Grey to discuss the time-shifted Scotty in "Relics". Can Scotty survive in a world of technobabble? Did the TNG crew watch TOS, so that’s why they don’t seem to care about Scotty? Does the Holodeck have an “I Feel Lucky” button? Is “Relics” a secret backdoor pilot to a future UPN show? Find out all this and more in this overflowing episode!
