March 2020 schedule

We’re back! And I don’t know about y’all, but I’ve missed you, and Station On Fire Trash Can, a great deal. Things are still fairly busy for me on a personal front, both with ongoing stuff at my current job, and because, depending on how a job interview this week goes I may be moving 700 miles away later this month, so I’m tentatively going with one post a week for most of the month, but may bump it back up to two later.

  • March 4: “Prophet Motive”
  • March 11: “Visionary”
  • March 18: “Distant Voices”
  • March 25: “Through the Looking Glass”
  • March 31: “Improbable Cause”

  • September 24: “Invasive Procedures”
  • September 26: “Cardassians”

As noted, I’m gonna try a thing where I do two episodes a week! Let’s see if it works. With that in mind, here is the planned August schedule:

  • August 6: “Move Along Home”

  • August 27: “If Wishes Were Horses”
  • August 29: “The Forsaken”

July schedule

I have pre-written this post on the assumption that this entire endeavor will not have petered out by July. Is this hubris? Possibly. Nonetheless, here is the July schedule!

  • July 2: “Babel”
  • July 9: “Captive Pursuit”
  • July 16: “Q-Less”
  • July 23: “Dax”
  • July 30: “The Passenger”

rewatch prewatch

So, a few days after I decided that substack wouldn’t work for this and paid for web hosting for this thing, they launched a community discussion feature, OF COURSE. I’m probably going to stick with the blog format for the time being on the grounds of “eh, I’ve got it, might as well use it” but if anyone has strong feelings either way, let me know.

Anyway, this weekend, I ended up rewatching some Next Gen as well, including, most relevant to this endeavor, “Ensign Ro”, so if anyone wants to rewatch that in the next few days and then discuss on this post, feel free! Otherwise, here is the viewing schedule for June.

June schedule

  • June 11: “Emissary”, both parts
  • June 18: “Past Prologue”
  • June 25: “A Man Alone”
