Captain Bubbles (A.K.A. Shannon) hangs unto her Laris dream on Picard Season 3 with her crew of Section 35 Chief Commander Klinger (Jake) and Guest Star Regi (A.K.A. SP or StarPi from Voices Of Defiance and Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D.) to discuss and review the Picard season 3 sixth episode "The Bounty." The crew discuss the fun, the nostalgia, the ships, the emotions, and, of course Laris speculation. They have a lot of fun along the way and come up with some surprising theories that have proven MIGHT come true! Join the crew and let them know what you think.

SP's Top Gun Maverick Live Tweet:
https://twitter.com/StargatePioneer/status/1568325358943961088 The gratuitous opening carrier F-18 operations scene in Top Gun Maverick would have been a lot less action porn and a lot more story additive had the team for the mission been shown taking off and landing before cutting to Tom Cruise walking out of his hanger Airstream.
https://twitter.com/StargatePioneer/status/1568325891394277376 It’s too bad Tom Cruise never actually lost anything in Top Gun Maverick. He won in every single situation and came out smelling like the good guy. Wheee was the loss? The sacrifice?
https://twitter.com/StargatePioneer/status/1568329487648948225 Tom Cruise’s recklessness in destroying the hypersonic Darkstar experimental plane in Top Gun Maverick was at least dereliction of duty and most likely Improper Hazarding of Aircraft. His ego and vanity did not match the reasoning. The personnel would have just been transferred
https://twitter.com/StargatePioneer/status/1568331101856301059 The scene in Tom Gun Maverick between Tom Cruise and Ed Harris was brilliant calling back to Ed’s John Glenn role in The Right Stuff. Ed tells Tom he should be a 2 star Admiral or a Senator. Glenn became an Ohio Senator and Ed was wearing 2 stars in the scene.
https://twitter.com/StargatePioneer/status/1568331823372967937 The lack of F-35’s at Top Gun in Top Gun Maverick is … worrisome.
https://twitter.com/StargatePioneer/status/1568333013087571969 I enjoyed Jon Hamm as Admiral “Cyclone” Simpson and Charles Parnell as Adm “Warlock” Bates in Top Gun Maverick but it would have been nice seeing Slider, Merlin or Wolfman from the 86 movie. Heck a nod to Ironside/Jester or Skerritt/Viper would have been nice too.
https://twitter.com/StargatePioneer/status/1568333895728259079 The strike package selection for the mission in Top Gun was horrifying. The United States military possesses capabilities better suited for the job with less risk. Also the lack of consideration for human casualties at the facility is extremely unrealistic.
https://twitter.com/StargatePioneer/status/1568334446033502210 The addition of Jennifer Connelly as Penny in Top Gun Maverick was a welcome sight and a fantastic tie to the 86 film. I loved the world building there. Although her car’s similarity to Charlie’s was not needed at all.
https://twitter.com/StargatePioneer/status/1568335007097167874 The lack of a bar serenade in Top Gun Maverick was disappointing. Also the lack of flirting between Rooster and anyone was a missed opportunity for future chapters in the story. I believe this was a stupid decision by Tom Cruise to keep the attention on himself.
https://twitter.com/StargatePioneer/status/1568335674020880387 Meg Ryan’s backstory in Top Gun Maverick was disappointing. Again, I believe this was done by Tom Cruise to keep the attention on himself.
https://twitter.com/StargatePioneer/status/1568336210577301508 I’m struggling to understand how Hangman graduated top of his Top Gun class in Too Gun Maverick. His tactics and non team playing mindset would have gotten him low marks by the instructors.
https://twitter.com/StargatePioneer/status/1568337040160202753 Why the enemy’s 5th Generation fighters couldn’t engage the F-18 strike package in Top Gun Maverick with Beyond Visual Range weapons is beyond me. That’s one of the keys for 5th Generation fighters.
https://twitter.com/StargatePioneer/status/1568338030217289729 Technically Rooster’s helicopter shoot down in Top Gun Maverick is an air to air kill which puts him on par with Hangman.
https://twitter.com/StargatePioneer/status/1568338249260613639 Let’s not even start about Tom Cruise flying the F-14 in Top Gun Maverick. Just. No.
But it was a deep good part of the film.
https://twitter.com/StargatePioneer/status/1568338906180976642 Seeing Val Kilmer in Top Gun Maverick made up for a lot of what’s wrong in the film. It was well done with the exception of having the Pacific Fleet Commander not able to talk. He would be taken off of active duty. And we all know Iceman is the better pilot anyway. Sorry Tom.
https://twitter.com/StargatePioneer/status/1568339340677316608 Having Penny not in the bar when Tom Cruise returned from the mission in Top Gun Maverick was unnecessary. I’m not really sure what the point to that was.
https://twitter.com/StargatePioneer/status/1568339774372720640 For Top Gun III how about we see Rooster and Phoenix instruct Amelia at Top Gun?
Oh. And no Tom Cruise please.
