I love #TheChase after Easter eggs in this one. I should probably revisit it again!

Megabooks Okay. What are Easter eggs? I‘ve never understood it, and it makes me feel really dumb! 1mo
jmtrivera @Megabooks No way, not dumb! Easter eggs are secrets hidden inside video games or films for fans to find. In the book, the creator of the virtual reality Oasis leaves his company to whomever can find all the Easter eggs he's hidden in the game. 1mo
Megabooks @jmtrivera Thank you!!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 1mo

“And the man from Snowy River never shifted in his seat - It was grand to see that mountain horseman ride.
Through the stringy barks and saplings, on the rough and broken ground,
Down the hillside at a racing pace he went;
And he never drew the bridle till he landed safe and sound,
At the bottom of that terrible descent.”

Megabooks Lovely quote!! Believe it or not, I‘m a vet who‘s scared of horses! My equine internal medicine rotation was a nightmare. Fortunately, I didn‘t have to do equine surgery; it was an elective. 1mo
LiterRohde @Megabooks I‘m taking Spanish for my elective. How about you? Me? I‘m taking equine surgery. 1mo
Megabooks @LiterRohde you actually made me lol! I wish we had medical Spanish as an elective! I‘d much rather do that than equine surgery! I‘m horrible with languages, though. My Moroccan Arabic teacher hated my Southern accented Arabic!! 1mo

@Cinfhen When there's a question about your home county on #thechase and your favourite Chaser reveals she has a cousin who lives in Tolpuddle (in the same county), which is near the river Piddle (or Puddle) and features in tagged book!

MallenNC I watched that show on my last trip to the UK. I also got weirdly obsessed with Tipping Point, which happened to be on whenever we we taking a break. 1mo
Cinfhen It‘s ALL about ANNE!!!!! 1mo
kezzlou85 I saw that and when the question came up I thought of you. Wondering how near it was to you. 1mo

jenniferw88 @kezzlou85 🙂 Tolpuddle is 13 miles, Puddletown is 16 miles! 1mo
kezzlou85 @jenniferw88 oh cool. Its always fun when you recognise a place. Paul said the other day a family member of his worked at the N and N in Norwich which is near me. 1mo
jenniferw88 @kezzlou85 I must admit when the q came up, I expected the answers to be ruder & for Bradley to lose it: https://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/news/11058774.21-of-the-funniest-place-names-i... 1mo
kezzlou85 @jenniferw88 so did I. It's always funny when he loses it. Oh wow some fun names there. Here it's more names that are spelt nothing like how they're pronounced. 1mo

The Chase | Giordano
post image

#TheChase is one of my favorite next gen episodes. Its exciting but also a thoughtful episode, with big ideas and implications to the Star Trek universe. Any story that uses Picard's interest in archaeology is a hit with me.

#StarTrekSummerMay #TheChase @Megabooks

Megabooks Fantastic quote! It‘s one of my favorite episodes as well. It‘s got some mystery, adventure, and a very “on Star Trek” message. 👍🏻 1mo
Leftcoastzen Great quote! So true! 1mo
SarahHarts_books Well said! 👍 👍 1mo

#TheChase is one of my favorite episodes. In it, the major aliens in the show and the Enterprise crew are in a race to gather DNA samples from various planets to put together to solve a puzzle.

I thought the message was positive, and it explained why all the aliens look similar 😉

One of my favorite chase-centered books & movies is Catch Me If You Can. It was one of my favorite pieces of nonfiction when I started reading again after vet school.

Megabooks #StarTrekSummerMay PS I‘m sorry #Liaisons was such an unpopular choice. Please don‘t watch tomorrow‘s episode #Violations if rape is a TW for you. 💜 1mo
khooliha I don't think you need to feel bad about Liaisons! It falls in the weird realm of season 7, where sometimes episodes feel a little half-baked because of planning for the finale/Generations. I think it just needed a little more polish. 1mo
khooliha As for Violations... the thing about it is that is a sadly typical episode for Deanna, who deserved better from the writers almost everytime they decided to make her the focus of the ep. 1mo

Megabooks @khooliha Yes, TNG had one of the worst final seasons of any Trek. I on the other hand, DS9‘s was pretty good. 1mo
Megabooks @khooliha Marina was a better actress than the treatment she was given. I‘m glad DS9 and VOY had stronger female roles. 1mo
khooliha @Megabooks Season 7 of TNG is really ueven, but anything with Lower Decks, All Good Things, and one of my favorite Trek guilty pleasures Genesis can't be all bad. I remember season 7 of DS9 feeling like a rollercoaster, though I'm not sure I could pinpoint why. 1mo
khooliha @Megabooks Both Deanna and Beverly were let down by the writers and it's probably the number one thing I wish TNG did better. Imagine if they got the kind of writing Kira, Be'lanna, or Seven did! 1mo
Megabooks @khooliha Agree on Lower Decks and Genesis! Just watching Michael Dorn tear up that mattress in Genesis was fun. 😝. I didn‘t love DS9 season 7 until I watched the episodes a second or third time. Now it has some of my fav episodes. I caught Covenant on TV the other day 👍🏻👍🏻! 1mo
Megabooks @khooliha Yes! Yes! On the women of the 24th century Treks. 1mo
Moodyreader ohhh i love star trek ❤️ 1mo
Megabooks @Moodyreader awesome! I‘d love for you to join the photo challenge if you want. You can find it under this book. I‘m doing a different series each month. 😁👍🏻 1mo
Avidreader25 I‘m rewatching Star Trek TNG for the first time in years. So good! 1mo
tournevis I like this episode too! 1mo
tournevis @Megabooks Seconded 1mo
tournevis @khooliha @Megabooks Not the writers' fault so much as Rick Berman's. The only reason there were better women characters in DS9 is Ira Behr and in VOY is Mulgrew herself (the fits she had to throw). Berman is a terrible sexist, racist and homophobic para-person. 1mo
khooliha @tournevis Oh yeah, Berman is trash. I listened to the 50 Year Mission books and yelled WTF at a lot of his comments. By the end I was boo-ing. 1mo
tournevis @khooliha If you get a chance to watch What We Left Behind (coming out next week) on DS9, the whole crew and Ira Behr spend a good third of it shitting on Berman, pardon my French. 1mo
khooliha @tournevis I'm going to try to catch the doc in theaters! I'm very excited. 1mo
tournevis @khooliha Me too! 1mo
Megabooks @Avidreader25 I watched it on dvd 11 years after the last episode and fell in love again! 1mo
Megabooks @tournevis @khooliha Yes, I‘ve been hearing about the doc a lot on twitter!! I want to see it. Rick Berman is trash. That‘s all there is! I googled “Rick Berman ruined Star Trek” back when I was doing a rewatch 10 years ago, and no one agreed. What?!??! And Jake and Nog aka the NoJake Consortium have a podcast now. Just FYI if you didn‘t know. 1mo
khooliha @Megabooks I did not know that! It is Very Pertinent to my interests. 1mo
tournevis @khooliha @Megabooks No gays in ST before Disco? Berman. Terry Farrell got fired? Berman. Seven of Nine? Played by his then girlfriend (Ryan hates him now too). Deanna Troy getting assaulted multiple times in cannon? Berman. He's trash. 1mo
Megabooks @tournevis I thought Jeri dated Brannon Braga. And I thought Terry left to do Becker. Does she say something different in the doc? 1mo
tournevis @Megabooks So Jeri did date Bragga. But things got “complicated“. Terry did not leave to do Becker. She was forced out because she asked for accommodations to do other work (that the other actors got) and getting fewer storylines, among other crap. So she was fired by Berman. Ira Behr is on record as saying he had not known about the crap she was subjected to and was told by Berman she left of her own volition. 1mo
Megabooks @tournevis Interesting. I want to watch the doc!!! I feel bad for Jeri. She‘s dated/married some bad men. (Jack Ryan sex club, anyone?) I‘m really glad Berman is not doing ST anymore. On the lighter side, I think it‘s adorable that Terri is married to Adam Nimoy. I hope they‘re happy. 1mo
tournevis @Megabooks Me too. It's a good ending. In the US, I think that the only day the doc will be in theaters is 13 May. In Canada, you get a few more days. I saw theaters advertize it for 13, 15 and 18 May. My ticket is for the 18th. 1mo
Megabooks @tournevis @khooliha new Nana Vistor interview https://sciencefiction.com/2019/05/08/exclusive-interview-nana-visitor-talks-sta.... And she‘s in a Lifetime movie this weekend! https://www.mylifetime.com/movies/killer-grandma I‘d be interested to see her as a grandmother!! 1mo
tournevis @Megabooks Great interview! As for the movie, not in Canada, looks like. 1mo
Megabooks @tournevis It was a great interview! Boo on the movie. I‘ve set up to record it. I love seeing fav ST actors in other roles. 1mo
Cinfhen Wow!!! Lots of Trekkie talk!!!! When I see The Chase I think of my lovely friend @jenniferw88 💕💕😁 1mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen We Trekkies definitely have opinions!! Have you seen the episode?? I think you put a dozen Trekkies in a room and you‘ll get six dozen ideas about the series, Trek in general, actors, producers, etc! It‘s a really vibrant community! 1mo
Cinfhen I‘ve never seen a single episode or any of the films 🙈 can we still be friends?!?!!! 😘😘😘 1mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen of course, my dear! 😘😘 It‘s never too late to become a Trekkie, though 😉😉🖖🏻🖖🏻 1mo
Cinfhen Ha, you might just convert me 🧡 1mo
jenniferw88 @Megabooks @Cinfhen funnily enough, there was a tweet a couple of weeks ago by one of the chasers about this episode and the definition of racism in it! Typically I can't find it now! 🤣🤣🤣 1mo

My tenable app has just caused me the fits of the giggles as we all know #TheChase is my favourite quiz show - there's no way I would get the names wrong! 😂😂😂
