Season 7, Episode 18: Rocket to the Future! Part One, chapter 6

Hopefully the listener has recovered from the devastating effect of not one, but two clip shows in a row detailing the adventures of the crew of the Vanguard, an Earth Space Force Rocket, in the space-age future year of 1992. Crazed galactic encyclopedia salesmen, Rocketmen from Planet B, venereal time warps, and even six month performance reviews have not been enough to staunch the valiant Vanguard crew. But now they're meeting up with the crew of the rocket Knausgaard, and each crew member has to deal with their far more competent counterpart. Will they survive a runaway meritocracy? Tune in and find out.
