The Battle Bridge Repost, Pen Pals, TNG S2 E15 Review

This is a repost of the review of Pen Pals.  The original post sat in drafts for a while, unbeknowst to me and then when I finally corrected that oversight, it was later discovered that the post had no audio file.  Therefor there was a whopping 21 downloads in a time frame that would see almost 200.  My only guess as to the reason was the lack of audio file and further edits meant nothing to the feeds.  So if you already downloaded this file, please forgive us and bear with us.  We will post the next show in a few days, long enough for the podcatchers to not overlook it.  So please enjoy our review of Pen Pals…

Original Post:

Data makes contact with a young girl from a pre-warp civilization on a planet facing imminent annihilation. The Enterprise must wrestle with the moral dilemma of violating the Prime Directive or standing by while Data’s friend dies.

Today James and Lou discuss (Pen Pals) and what we think of it and much more as well as listener feedback.

Credit: Main Title Theme (TV Edit) was arranged by Dennis McCarthy and composed by Gerry Goldsmith and Alexander Courage
