Episode 55: “The Neutral Zone” (TNG 1×26) and the Past and Future of Cryonics

In this episode we use the TNG episode “The Neutral Zone,” in which three people from the 20th century are revived from cryopreservation to find themselves on the Enterprise 300 years later, to talk about cryonics. We touch on its history, whether it actually works (no), whether it could work (probably not), whether we’d do it (no way), and, just for fun, a little on the history and philosophy of death as a concept.
