This week, since Hav is recovered from his life threatening bacterial infection (mostly), Rikturscale and Hav make clear that they are NOT friends by any means, Rik joins him in celebration by wishing a pox on him and his family (this may or may not have actually happened), and Hav’s arch nemesis Captain Geko wishes him a speedy recovery. This makes perfect sense in the topsy turvy world that is Podcast UGC.
We talk about the new Delta Recruitment event, the new episode that continues a really, really old story … we hypothesize on what could be in the center of the Harold Sphere (and who the hell Harold is…?), lament that the Pilot Specialization on the GROUND would pretty much confirm that our starships are more than meets the eye (they’re robots in disguise!), we debate what piece of rejected Jem Hadar Strike ship art would have made a cooler ship, and we read email. Lots, and LOTS of email. Oh. And then there’s the AfterSTO. So Give it a listen!
The AfterSTO starts @ 00:35:30

Is Venus The Planet We Should Colonize?
Mars One. The Mars Rover. Bruno Mars. Mars Bars. It’s pretty clear we’re OBSESSED with the idea of Mars, especially in regard to it being a potential colony for earthlings. But is that really the best option? Is there a better place for us to colonize in our solar system? Well, how about Venus? Sure the surface temperature is over 450 degrees Celsius, with crazy pressure, but there might be a smart way around that, making Venus a better option for long term colonization than Mars! How?
It’s “Peeback Time!”
The residents of St. Pauli, party central of Hamburg, Germany, have decided to fight back against public urinators. A St. Pauli community organization coated numerous walls with a super hydrophobic material that causes urine to splash back at public urinators. While some of the walls treated with the substance have been labeled, there are many that haven’t. Continue reading for a video and more information.
“The whole campaign has a silly air to it, but it seems like it might actually work. As one St. Pauli resident warns in the campaign’s video, ‘it’s peeback time,'” says Bored Panda.
