Tread Perilously — Andromeda: The Sum of All Its Parts

Tread Perilously joins up with one more starship the episode of Andromeda called “The Sum of All Its Parts.”

When the Andromeda Ascendant encounters a debris field, the crew meets an ambassador of The Consensus of Parts. They have heard of Dylan Hunt’s mission to restore the Federation and offer an alliance of sorts, but their true interest is in adding Andromeda to their Consensus. After the ship’s AI rebuffs the advances of a Consensus general, the Ambassador resurfaces as a subroutine in Andromeda’s consciousness. Can Dylan Hunt negotiate with the Ambassador and the General before all the “bio-units” on board are de-rezzed?

Erik and Justin discuss what the Phoenicians might have looked like and the choice of casting Jason Momoa as Aquaman. Erik also praises actor Lexa Doig. Justin decides he needs a Blue Lagoon cinematic universe. Erik lodges a complaint against saccharine whimsy. Justin recalls the worst film he and Erik have ever seen. Erik’s hatred of Trance leads to a long discussion of Andromeda‘s metaplot and the behind-the-scenes battle between developer Robert Hewitt Wolfe and star Kevin Sorbo. Erik determines the difference between a space demon and a demon in space while the pair also face the worst piece of dialogue they have ever encountered on Tread Perilously.
