Ep 38: Malibu Picard (S2E13)

| 0 comments

When the Enterprise finds an IKEA shuttlepod floating in space, they (what else?) bring it aboard for a closer inspection. What they find inside is a very tan, extremely well-rested clone of Captain Picard whose body, unlike the original Picard, does not respond well to stimulants. How will Wesley (the boy?) tell them apart? What's the cost of a destroyed Galaxy-class starship? Why didn't Riker season his eggs before serving them? It's the episode where we bring booze to brunch!

Ron Hubbard's birthday party (and goes). Plus, a few facts from Scientology's past, their kooky anti-psychiatry museum, some book recommendations, the inside scoop on who the heck Xenu is, and your questions about our investigation answered.
