    We're in a plot blackhole! 

    After reaching Rylos station, we enter a Jean Luc Picard Convention led by Colonel Adolf Sanders. Back home, Beta bakes his bones with heavy breathing, under brother Louis' batch of bawdy Playboys. Xur has a pity party over who can say 'fire'. And, Centauri is assassinated (OR IS HE?!) by fishes.

    Naomi's brother Abraham suggested that this year's December episode be "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians". In fact, he's been suggesting this movie to us since 2018. So, we thought it would be great to bring him on for a special end-of-year interview episode.
