Time is a funny thing - especially when you draw an emoticon on a temporally-frozen warp core breach. Captain Jean Luc Picard reminds Data in a deleted scene in Star Trek: Nemesis that the presence of time is a chance for humans to perform certain rituals. In keeping with that tradition, Darren, Daniel, and Phillip celebrate their 150th episode of talking all things The Next Generation by providing a commentary to their favorite series' 150th episode.
In this season six, 25th episode - Timescape - the crew of the Enterprise-D find themselves more-or-less frozen in time while aiding a damaged Romulan warbird. Picard, Data, Troi, and Geordi, after perfecting some comedic impersonation skills, must find a way to fix this unique time travel puzzle, all while encountering a new alien species. Join the crew of Earl Grey as they beam aboard a high-definition Starfleet runabout, explore the interiors of a Romulan warbird, and find they have problems with the fast forward/reverse button on their time controllers in this commentary episode of "Timescape."
A SPECIAL TREK.FM EARL GREY EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT FOR STAR TREK LAS VEGAS
Listeners know #BridgeMates from Earl Grey episodes 82 (“When in Doubt Choose Data”), 109 (“He Hasn't Watched That One”), and 141 (“The Council of Mistresses”), as well as To the Journey 117 (“BridgeMates Rematch”) and Standard Orbit 102 (“Trying to Kill Zoolander”).

Earl Grey is proud to announce a live presentation of “Super BridgeMates” at the Star Trek Las Vegas 50th Anniversary Convention on Friday, August 5 from 12:30 to 1:15 pm. It will be held on the Roddenberry Stage at Quark's Bar, hosted by Phillip Hunter Gilfus. Your favorite team of “Free Enterprise” (Darren Moser and Daniel Proulx) will attempt to escape defeat (again) against two rival BridgeMate Teams - “Team Lizard Babies” (Charlynn Schmiedt and Tristan Riddell) and “The Council of Mistresses” (Andi VanderKolk and Jarrah Hodge).
When it comes to celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek, regular BridgeMates simply won't do. That's why this game show will be “Super BridgeMates”- a fun-filled, comedic game show involving fans, cosplayers, and audience members. Not only will the teams compete in hilarious trivia, but those in the audience will participate by acting out selected scenes from our favorite Star Trek moments and cosplayers will help create puzzles for the teams to solve. It's all about the love of Star Trek! #roddenberry
