The doctors will see you now...

An Audio Play podcast about a rag-tag group of doctors on a far-future space station called EOS 10. Dr. Ryan Dalias is sent to be the new head of surgery at the station and to keep an eye on misanthropic Dr. Urvidian. He gets a lot more than he bargained for.

Described as Scrubs in Space, with a little drama thrown in for good measure. Created by Justin McLachlan and first published on iTunes in 2014.

The Kickstarter for the third season was fully funded in May 2018.[1] and premiered on September 4, 2018.


This show provides examples of:

  • The Alcoholic: The original reason Ryan was sent to EOS 10 was to deal with Dr Urvidian's raging drinking problem. By season two he has managed to stay on the wagon and is a Recovered Addict
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Jane to Dr. Osolong, The Interface to Ryan... (a lot of people like Ryan)
  • Ascended Meme: One of the earliest pieces of fanart depicted Ryan with pink hair and it became a running theme. In season two Jane hallucinates Ryan with pink hair which was explained via Word of God to have been in reference to that trend.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Ryan Dalias and Akmazian in the beginning as well as Dr Urvidian and Ryan's mother Elaine Dalias.
  • Breather Episode: After three somewhat heavy episodes about addiction and substance abuse, we were gifted the episode 'Up, Up, Up', which is 89% penis jokes.

  • Casual Kink: Jane seems to have more than a few of these...
  • Chekhov's Boomerang: We're told early on that due to Ryan's former substance abuse, he had an implant in his head to regulate his brain chemistry. This comes in handy multiple episodes, including being the thing that keeps Ryan from being put under mind control in the season 2 finale and enables them to save the day.
  • Clueless Chick Magnet: Ryan. Ho boy, Ryan. Just about everyone on the show has shown romantic interest to Ryan at some point, but he remains oblivious until someone points it out to him.
  • Eating the Eye Candy: Akmazian has a few of these moments with Ryan.
    • "My eyes are up here."
  • Gag Penis: Pretty much Episode 4 in a nutshell.
  • The Ghost: While he gets mentioned very early on and appears to be a frequent subject of discussion, Dr. Osolong has yet to make an actual appearance in the podcast aside from anecdotes told by other characters.
  • Government Conspiracy
  • Hidden Depths: Both Ryan and Jane have elements of this.
    • Ryan comes across as a fairly stable, average guy without too many quirks or idiosyncrasies. However he's actually a recovered former drug addict who's been to rehab two separate times, something which is still holds a lot of guilt and shame over.
    • Jane is a bubbly and enthusiastic Genki Girl who loves gossiping and trying to set up her friends. Underneath that, she actually suffers bouts of severe anxiety, and deeply doubts her own abilities as a nurse and holding her own rank in the military. she also lost her sister at a very young age.
  • Interspecies Romance: Ryan and Ciara. Or Interspecies Hook-up, as it were.
  • Love at First Punch: Ryan and Akmazian's first meeting involves Ryan insulting him and threatening to turn him into the authorities. Needless to say, Akmazian is pretty damn smitten from that moment onward.
  • Love Triangle:
    • Elaine: "What ever happened to us, Horace?"
    • Urvidian: "You married my best friend."
  • Luke, I Might Be Your Father Dr Urvidian had an affair with Ryan's mother. As it turns out, it was around the same time Ryan was conceived...
  • Mistaken for Dying: Levi constantly believes he is dying, as a Running Gag.
  • Oblivious to Love: Akmazian spends a good deal of season two dropping brick-sized hints Ryan's way that he's interested. Ryan seems to either be completely oblivious or think Akmazian is just messing with him.
  • Recovered Addict: Dr Urvidian as of season two, as well as Ryan, who's been 15 years clean as a former drug addict
  • Shipper on Deck: Jane is VERY interested in Ryan's lovelife. Particularly him getting together with Dr. Osolong.
  • The Sponsor: Ryan plays this role for Dr. Urvidian throughout season one
  • Stalker with a Crush: Jane has a system of going on 'dates' with Dr Osolong by hiding just out of sight while he eats dinner. It's a little creepy.
  • Running Gag: The series has a few examples of these
    • Ryan's 'forehead problem'
    • Levi wanting to take off his pants
    • Ryan's penis nearly exploding
  • Take That!: Episode 106, Antivaxx, is absolutely merciless towards anti-vaxxers. They're referred to as causing a plague in Earth's future history, the ship is seen as a massive biohazard, nobody respects them, and their ship is later blown up with their captain onboard.
  • Teamwork Seduction: Jane and Levi try this on Akmazian. It's not very effective.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: The friendship between Dr Urvidian, Ryan, Jane, and Levi seems to run on this.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Ryan has a... complicated relationship with his father.
    • "Ryan. You know I'm very proud of you, right?"
  • Will They or Won't They?: Akmazian and Ryan get upgraded to this in the second season.

How well does it match the trope?
