Warp Speed Round Table

Last time around we asked you to write a thank you note, similar to those Jimmy Fallon writes on “The Tonight Show,” but it is being written by Picard.

Listener Diane wrote in three! 

Dear Starfleet Quartermaster,

Thank you for supplying me with an ill fitting tunic so I could be famous for tugging at my clothes and not for skills as a Captain.

Dear Kirk,

Thanks for the saddle sores  

Dear William Shakespeare,

Thank you for providing me with some of my most effective and moving speeches.

This episode we’re asking: Name a song you would find on Worf’s Spotify playlist.

Time to refill the dilithium chamber and warp on out of here!
