This episode was recorded LIVE on Thursday, September 10th, 2015 and made available for download or streaming on Monday, September 14th, 2015 at PriorityOnePodcast.com!

First and foremost, this week, we are saying goodbye to our venerable Captain Pentad, as he embarks on a new journey. But *our* journey must continue! So while we lament Jayce’s departure, we’re also celebrating Mark’s return as a weekly host of Priority One. So we hope you’ll join us in welcoming him back as a permanent member of the bridge crew.

In Trek it Out this week, we’ve got an interview with Armin Shimerman, who’s talking about his new film, 5th Passenger. In Star Trek Online news, we’ve got first impressions of the new featured episode, “Midnight”, the finale in the Iconian War story arc. We’re also dishing on the latest gossip regarding Season 11, “A New Dawn”, and Mark has the details of the Jem’Hadar ships from the latest R&D pack promotion.

And as always, before we wrap things up, we’ll open Hailing Frequencies for your incoming messages.

    Thank you for your service Jayce and am looking forward to getting to know Mark back again.

    Regarding Midnight, I thought it was a very Trek way to end the war (which is a good thing). My only gripe with it was the conversion of the Krenim time-ship into a time-travel portal creator. The whole concept of removing something from time was a really interesting take on the often over-used time travel trope, and now that concept is gone.

    I imagine this was done to help explain New Dawn and how time travel will be available to everyone, but I’m not crazy about it.

    Midnight was an excellent episode, Sela has to die, do not pass go, veron t disruptor to the head.

    Wonderful show everyone, thanks to everyone that did interviews at STLV.

    Firstly a massive LLAP to Jayce, as a regular listener I’m definitely going to miss his balanced and informed insight and especially his understated humour. Wishing him all the best with the studies, perhaps by graduation he’ll be able to tell us what Kiri-kin-tha’s first law of metaphysics was? Re Midnight, I absolutely loved it, felt like a feature film, especially exciting and eerie beaming down onto Iconia, the ending really felt like a Star Trek finale and they did well restoring the values of the federation. By the way, I hope someone remembered to arrest Sela before beaming out from Starfleet Academy.

    Thank you Jayce for your long service aboard the USS Prioritas; as a long time listener I too will miss your input and contributions – good luck with your studies, and I hope we’ll see you in-game now and again.

    What had me grinning during Midnight; “Kurland here… (static)”.
    It was a small annoyance during that DS9 mission but it was a cute shoe-in during the space battle. A nice turn-around that actually made me replay that DS9 episode.

    Overall I found Midnight enjoyable, though I expected a tougher ‘end level Boss fight’ – granted I only play Advanced and not Elite level – but ‘just’ fighting off some raiders seemed too easy.

    Especially compared to the tough Herald ground fight during ‘Blood of the Ancients’, fighting the enemy invaders felt more like a pirate raid instead of a full invasion force geared for taking on the mighty Iconians.

    Good show, as always.

    Jayce! We had fun while it lasted. I recently listened to most of the podcasts between Delta Rising’s release and now, and you were a staple of every episode. You will be missed.

    In regards to Midnight, my favorite part was getting to see what the Iconians were like before the invasion of Iconia. I assumed the twist was going to be that the character was one of the invaders, not “The Others.” Also: Did anyone else notice that one race of the invaders looked like they may have been ancestors of the Romulans/Vulcans? It was mostly the uniform, but if you look more closely, they seem like thorn-covered Romulans.

    Great show, guys. And I look forward to replaying the mission for the rest of the space set. It was a fun conclusion to the Iconian story.

    I offer a belated goodbye to Jayce. I only started listening to the podcast not that long ago and had to take a break for a while due to a dead computer and too much work, but now I’m back and catching up on all the episodes I missed and now I’m sad to hear you’re moving on. I always liked hearing your point of view on things. Best of luck and I hope you come back from time to time as a special guest!

    All I have to say about Midnight is… CALLED IT. Check my prediction on “the other” back on P1 Episode 231.

    Well, also I had fun playing the mission.
