She-Ho visits Evil Leaper in his chicken-wired quarters and cackles, "What are you wearing?" Evil Leaper, who is oddly posed with one foot on a chair and the other on the floor, flings his arms wide and says he found Kirk's puce wraparound with lamé accents in the captain's wardrobe. "These people had some strange ideas about uniforms," She-Ho says as she pulls on an "I [heart] Irony" shirt over her cropped top. While Evil Leaper whinges that he can't find any mention of the Terran Empire in the ship's computer, She-Ho pours out two glasses of "It's green!" For this episode, I mixed up a special pitcher of It's Greentinis. They were quite tasty and potent and no one had a Data reaction to them. She-Ho and Evil Leaper discuss the United Federation of Planets that exists in the other universe, and snark about peace. "United Federation of FOOLS," Evil Leaper snorts. It's amazing how I can agree with him, yet still hate him. Evil Leaper calls up biographical information (complete with fugly-ass yearbook photos) on their other selves and then they decide they don't want to learn about themselves. Bored. Evil Leaper is such a freak about his other self that he can't even bring himself to look at the bio, and instead furrows and gnashes his teeth and gets loudly crabby when She-Ho reads his stuff aloud. I guess it's because his other self is all successful and this self's got evil issues. Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the furrowest of them all? Did I mention I was bored with this particular plot? Evil Leaper spits, "There's nothing great about that man!" Damn right there isn't. She-Ho strokes Evil Leaper's ego and reminds him how the Emperor will react when he brings Defiant home: "Starfleet will have to give you a command of your own." Evil Leaper wrenches away and says he already has a command of his own. God, he's a brat. By the way, they managed to use Majel's TNG voice for the computer. I wonder if they had her come in for it or if they just used old footage -- the podcast doesn't comment on it at all.
