This week Erin starts to see through the cracks of Portland and Bryan enjoys a nice cabbage meal.

Hello Buddies! By the time you finish listening to this episode it'll be 50 minutes in the future! But what if it was 20 years? Or 30 years? Or 1000 years?! How will gender and race have changed? What technology would exist and how would we adapt to it? Would you be considered a super hipster? Whose head would you hope was preserved in a jar? What would you be horrified to discovered has happened while you slept? Would you hope for a robot buddy? Whether it's via coma or cryonics, what do you do if you wake up in the future? Were so excited to be joined by the amazing Ashly Burch (RocketJump, Hey Ash Whatcha Playin?) to figure it out!
When Wesley meets an age-appropriate romantic partner, Picard is put in a foul mood. To make matters worse, the Enterprise’s 5 star Uber rating is at risk.

Is Guinan the ship’s best counselor? Did the Sand People from Star Wars do VO work on this episode? Is Salia one of the aliens that left a big pile of Armus on Vagra II? It’s the episode where Wesley learns romantic karate from the masters. Vote in our twitter poll!.
