    This week adventurers into the Great Unknown Kehaar and Matt gaze into the pitiless void, to see if anything is staring back, or they've just had too much to drink. Diving headlong into the largely godless realm of Science Fiction, we look at those beings that may sometimes act like, or be mistaken for them.

    This week:

    - Star Trek and it's pantheon of god-like entities, and how it treats them

    - Battlestar Galactica old and new, Angels, Demons and Men and Robots

    - Lovecraft and the nameless horrors of Ancient Aliens

    - The Gods of the Old World, wearing capes and playing at being Superheros.
