We boldly continue our summertime mission with our pal, Patrick MacFarlane of the Liberty Weekly Podcast discussing episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation. This one is Season 3, Episode 16 - The Offspring.
Hoping to further his creator’s work and perpetuate his species, Data creates an android named Lal, who identifies as female.
Is she a creation or an offspring. Do the rights afforded the father extend to his creation? There is some administrative fireworks between Picard and Admiral Haftel that are unfortunately defused by the plot convenience of Lal’s cascade failure, but this is still a fun episode that explores the concepts and situations around parenting, social interactions and education.
Join us next week as we discuss "Crazy Heart" with our musician friend, Scott M.

Reel Unconventional Film Analysis.
We use movies as a starting point for people who may not be familiar with this way of thinking.
The point is to show what anarchy actually is with instances that are presented in film.
