183: Dirty Jokes


Is it possible to follow the council given to not trust anyone? Isn't this the exact type of phrase given to breed mistrust? Friendship is built on trust and how can you take risks for your friends if you don't trust them? Picard takes a very calculated move to trust his crew and find evidence of this conspiracy within Starfleet Command. But his decisions nearly get his crew under the control of the alien invaders. In this episode of Earl Grey, host Amy Nelson with special guest Justin Oser discuss "Conspiracy." This season one episode looks at a conspiracy that goes to the very top of Starfleet. We talk about the cost of friendship and how much risk are we willing to take for a friend, especially when we have a long and trusting relationship. Is it really feasible to believe that these scorpion-like creatures could get that far into Starfleet with the goal of overtaking the Federation? Is this a believable enemy?
