No show this week.

by on Feb.02, 2010, under Crew Logs

Sorry for there not being a show up this week folks. We’ve been having technical difficulties with the space station, seems to be leaking coolant.

We’re working on compensating, Star Trek style, and will be popping up both a 3.5 feedback episode and official ep 4 soon.
