Kid friendly raps, psychic frenemies, and an inaptly-placed Westboro Baptist Church promo make up this episode, alongside a special noir mystery installment of the USS Carpathia.
“As a space-going adventurer regularly described as both rugged and intrepid, I rarely have time for such frivolities as radio entertainment. Why listen to life when you can be living it, is my attitude! I can’t tell you who won the last Earth Idol, but I can tell you what it’s like to bed a Balkovaarian maiden under the purple moons, your hands still shaky from asteroid-field dogfights. But if you have to fritter way your time with popular entertainment, you might as well learn a little about the life you could be having. Go for it.”
– Commander Chaz Remmington, AstroBase Special Expeditionary Wing
