Latest - Episode 10 – Appreciation (By Tarran Merlo)

This episode of the SHORTS podcast contains terrible singing, alien space sickness, rogue murderous AI, and other themes and content which may not be suitable for some listeners – listener discretion is advised.

Captain Domenic Highland is bored with space… all the cool stuff, like alien invasions, discovering new and exciting planets, and fending off unknown entites was finished with decades ago… all he has now is his overly positive crew and his karaoke practice, which he clearly is a master off… … … … /endawkwardsilence. Will he ever learn that what he has in front of him is special and unique? Will he ever learn, Appreciation?

We couldn’t put together an in-no-way-affiliated-with-Star-Trek SHORTS episode without enlisting the aid of the amazing guest voices of Joseph & Peter of the V’Ger Please podcast (http://vgerplease.libsyn.com/). If you, like the team at Hail and Well Met, are avid trekkies, you should not pass up the opportunity to listen to Joseph & Peter rip apart Star Trek Voyager in a critical, thought provoking, and downright hilarious way!
