Second Officer Slog
Second Officer Slog is a monthly Star Trek book club celebrating the wild, sprawling, dubiously canon extended universe of our favorite TV sci-fi series so you don't have to! Life long Trek nerds M and Jackson dive into the minutia of treaties, techno-babble, and Bajoran independence starting from the DS9 novel relaunch and headed where no book club has gone before.
Intended for people who've never cracked a single Trek book, we're talking about the best and worst that universe has to offer through book summaries, episode revisits, and more!
We're here at the end of all things, where the Pahvans misstepped and made a terrible mistake, where the Discovery makes a daring gambit to take the next step forward, and we all boldly go for one last time in 2017 as the first half of the season comes to a dramatic conclusion. Join us for "Into the Forest I Go", and thoughts from listeners on what they've enjoyed from Discovery so far.
Hello friends, and welcome back to our continuing Discovery coverage. Today we talk about "Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum," the penultimate episode of the fall half of this season. The table is set and Saru gets owned as we wonder about Cornwell and talk about how nice it is to have Trek book sensibilities on a show like this.
Discovery barrels through the first half of the season but we still have books to read, and this week we complete our journey through the Mission Gamma series! It is one of the most wild books we have read in sheer terms of holy shit moments per page, and specifically tuned to the stuff we love about Trek. It is a very, very good time.
