Trek TV Episode 192 - Star Trek: The Next Generation S04E23 - "The Host"

In this episode of Trek TV we discuss Star Trek: The Next Generation S04E23 - "The Host". Hosted by Tracy and Vaughn. Guest starring Maximum Derek & Jared. "The Host" is a 2006 monster film by Bong Joon-ho, while his most recent, Academy Award-winning film is "Parasite". Neither of these actually have anything to do with this TNG episode, "The Host", about a parasite (well, it's a "sybiont" but what advantages it gives to its host are... fuzzy at best) who worms its way into our dear Dr. Crusher's heart (not to mention Riker's gut); however, watching either would arguably be a far superior use of your time than this sloppy, noisy, brother-makeout of an episode. That doesn't mean we can't (though it also doesn't necessarily mean we SHOULD....) "host" our own share of discussions about such topics as the bewildering origins of Trill society, the shockingly limited "ability to love" of super-advanced future humans, and the lickability of people-buckets. And hey, a lot more time in the oven with these same rudimentary ingredients did give us the far better realized Trill of later series, so at least there's that. So don't be like the poor Dr. with her crushed heart, dear listener, and open yourself to new experiences... namely, enjoying this possibly most-disgusting-ever episode of Trek TV!

My rendition of Jared

From: Chris W.
Attached is my rendition of Jared according to Mariana's description from the "Final Mission" episode (Episode 178.) Since Mariana stated that Jared resembled Data, I did so with my fanart. I also gave him blue eyes since Mariana stated she liked Riker's eyes, and Data's eye color is almost certainly not that of Jared's. I hope you all like it
