of dragons and starships – Episode 96 – Your Mummy Wears Metal Boots!

CJ builds his own atomic energy device so he can live off the grid. It wasn’t enough so he put solar panels up. Then a windmill. Then a gas generator. More power! Power corrupts
Angus gets closer to making his ion powered spaceship. Now it actually has a bowling alley and coffee bar. That’s progress, folks. Gotta have the essentials.

The Expanse

In a flashback to before the Ganymede attack, Dr. Lawrence Strickland is seen walking with Mei and another woman, as was seen in the security cam footage. As he passes a plant, he sneakily snaps off a leaf and keeps walking.

Back in the present moment, the Roci crew, sans Alex, retraces those steps and finds the tunnel to the old Ganymede station. Naomi tries to prepare Prax for the worst. He rudely declares to her she has never lost a child, but she objects, stating that she has, and it took her a long time to get over the guilt.

On Earth, Draper is getting chewed out by Martens for escaping the embassy. She is demanding the truth about the human-protomolecule hybrid she saw on Ganymede. She yells that he lied to her. He yells that she has jeopardized the future of Mars. He also tells her she is no longer a soldier and to prepare for the trip home.

On the Arboghast, Janus and Iturbi look on with concern as an MCRN ship, the Shandian, continues to shadow them. They also continue to try to drop probes down into the Erosian-impact crater on Venus, but the probes’ signals all disappear before they reach the surface. Iturbi suggests they break protocol and drop lower before releasing their last two probes and, after some debate, Janus concedes.

Errinwright tells Avasarala he has an idea to leverage Jules-Pierre Mao’s family in order to get Mao to make contact. Avasarala tells Errinwright he is going to be a scapegoat at the hearings about the Eros disaster, unless they can find Mao. And even if they do not, Avasarala advises Errinwright that he should use the hearings to atone for what he has been a part of.

As the Martian drop ship enters Earth’s atmosphere to pick up Draper and Martens, it suddenly reverses course and returns to space. They are told that the UN government got wind of an OPA plot to bomb the transport, and Avasarala put a hold on the pick-up. So, Draper and a suspicious Martens return to their quarters.

Alex and the Roci are still hiding out behind one of Jupiter‘s moons amid a no-fly order. Suddenly, there is an MCRN alert about a ship, the Karakum, that has been granted clearance to land on Ganymede. Alex surmises it is some kind of black-ops mission; he needs to get down to Ganymede first, and he plans a wildly ambitious slingshot-around-a-few-moons plan to get the Roci down to the surface without detection.

In another flashback, at the beginning of the battle on Ganymede, Strickland and the other woman, Umea, bicker about how this field test of theirs has gone horribly wrong and could trigger a war. Mei speaks up and wants her father, but Strickland manages to talk sweet to her and give her an injection before leading her along to the next place.

The Roci crew continues to track through the tunnels as the air cycler shuts down in the station. Prax begins to explain the cascade effect like he did to Amos previously, but Amos interrupts with a short summary: the station is on the verge of collapse. Prax spots a vial of Mei’s medicine and surmises that Strickland is keeping Mei alive. Holden says they keep going.

Draper requests to see Martens, who is in his room, receiving a message about the Karakum landing on Ganymede to pick up Caliban. She again demands the truth and then attacks him, angry that her team was killed for a weapons test. She makes him show her proof: Project Caliban was a field test; he shows her footage from the drone she saw that night, trying to defend himself by affirming that all had been done for the MCR and its citizens’ safety.

Draper knocks Martens out and manages to also knock out a security guard. She makes a run for the perimeter fence around the Martian embassy. She gives herself up to UN authorities, requesting political asylum.

Alex begins his elaborate plan to slingshot around various moons and land on Ganymede. His plans unfolds accordingly until he almost runs straight into an MCRN ship. He manages to slip behind one of the moons and escape detection.

Draper has been brought in to see Avasarala, who jokes about Draper creating a diplomatic incident. Draper tells Avasarala that she was right – the human-protomolecule hybrid is a weapon, and right now it is up for sale by the highest bidder – the Martian government. She hands over Martens’ information on Project Caliban, and Avasarala sends Cotyar off to analyze it.

The Roci crew reaches a door, and they can hear people on the other side. Prax asks Amos for a gun, which Amos reluctantly hands over. When they bust in, it is the woman Umea and some other scientists eating pizza. Umea wants to talk it out, but Prax spots Mei’s backpack and makes a move which ends in a shootout. Umea escapes and Amos gets shot in the shoulder.

Jules-Pierre Mao sends Avasarala a message, meaning her plan to get him to resurface worked. He wants to set up a meeting with Avasarala, but Cotyar thinks it is clearly a trap. Avasarala may well agree, but she had already arranged to meet.

On Ganymede, Prax sees a pod chamber with a frozen child inside. It is not Mei, but he is still freaked out by its appearance. Before they can figure it out what had happened to him, someone throws a grenade into the room the Roci crew were in. Amos acts quickly to throw it back out the door, and the explosion out there is followed by screams of pain.

In the aftermath of the grenade, the Roci crew sees that something was able to break out of captivity. Holden sees Umea, mortally wounded, and she tells him they molded the protomolecule in their own image. Suddenly, Alex shows up outside the airlock. He is here to pick the crew up, but Naomi tells Holden she is staying. She wants to do some good, and helping the Somnambulist to evacuate the survivors on Ganymede is a start. Holden tells her to keep Amos with her, and they kiss goodbye.

Alex calls Holden over and points out the human-protomolecule hybrid staring back at them from out on Ganymede without a spacesuit. Holden orders Prax to suit up, declaring that they are going “on a hunt”.

Episode 88 – A World of Pure Imagination

genewilderof dragons and starships – Episode 88 – A World of Pure Imagination

RIP Gene Wilder

CJ begins construction on his own interstellar spacecraft so he can escape the bonds of the earth and head to our nearest star. What propulsion is he using? A lot of beans and cabbage. Angus plans to help CJ create the fastest spacecraft out there by growing the cabbage and beans in poop filled soil.

muddof dragons and starships – Episode 87 – Here’s Mudd In Your Eye!

Angus returns from his trip to Africa and has finally learned the secret of the world of the Wild Kingdom. He still won’t be on Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom because the lions wouldn’t take a selfie with him. CJ reminds himself that in a perfect world there still isn’t anything to watch on cable.

IT! The terror from beyond space.

1958, women on Space Ship apparently are Stewardesses.  Oh yeah, the boys smoke it up and a Martian stop action Yeti did it!

When we go to another planet checklist:  45 acp pistol with plenty of ammo Mack, cases of grenades-the old pineapple variety, lots of fragile chemistry glassware, couple of sexy Stews, a palette of Camels and Marlboros,…and a caulk gun for all the hull damage and gashes to follow.
