We’re so very, very tired in this, the prepenultimate episode of Discovery season 2. Live long and prosper.Read More
Finally Discovery rights itself and we have what we both consider to just be a good episode of Star Trek. Given that it involves forgetting major character motivations and making one of the characters a literal terminator, are we perhaps just forced to lower our standards? Or is it true that the only thing that we like more than good Trek is bad Trek? Time will tell as we have until the 32nd century to find the answer in this, the latest Discovery episode.Read More
The Discovery solves several mysteries as another giant one opens before them in this episode that splits us in two on what exactly we want or are willing to accept from modern Star Trek.

Wasted potential and piss poor writing does not a good episode make, but we do our best to talk through exactly why this episode of Discovery set a new low for this show. Sorry for the downer one, folks, hopefully next week picks back up!Read More

We finally spend most of the episode talking about the actual episode of Star Trek, which means Sarek must be involved! But don’t worry, we get a little bit of time to yell about Enterprise, as is our wont. Also, a shocking revelation about the mirror universe that changes everything forever.Read More

- Gene Roddenberry, 1961
Light spoilers for a bunch of DS9 and Enterprise in this episode.
What happens when Discovery has its most dramatic story yet? We find time to talk about everything but the actual events of this episode.

It’s good, actually.Read More
