Short Treks – “The Brightest Star”

RR18: What’s Lorca’s is Saru’s

This week, Greg and Jeremy go it alone to discuss Star Trek: Discovery Episode 13 “What’s Past is Prologue”. Derreck is on an away mission but there’s plenty to discuss like Lorca’s ruthlessness, Saru captaining the Discovery, the possibility of Lorca wanting to eat Saru, and just how action-packed Discovery is compared to the previous Star Trek series.

What did you think of “What’s Past is Prologue”? Is Discovery hitting the right cylinders for you? What do you think of the Mirror Universe story arc? Are you sold on the Lorca reveal? Do you think Saru will remain captain of the Discovery?

RR07: Saru and Pandora

Saru gets an away mission but before that, non-corporeal aliens show up a lot in Star Trek. In fact, the Q and Voyager’s Kes are among some of the more well known energy beings. This week, we talk about our favorite non-corporeal alien episodes of Star Trek and we manage to cover three different series with our picks!

Then, we provide our spoiler-free thoughts on Star Trek: Discovery Episode 8 “Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum”. We do pause for a moment and then dive into spoilers discussing the opening battle, Saru’s away mission on a familiar planet, and a return to the Klingon ship of the dead, among other things.

Discovery continues with Episode 3 “Context is for Kings” and we finally get to see the USS Discovery and meet Captain Lorca! This week on Redshirts & Runabouts, we break down the episode and talk about what it did better than the prelude to the series, as well as things we might not have enjoyed.

RR01: Thrusters on Full

Star Trek: Discovery First Look

It has been a long time coming, nearly a year. Last summer Star Trek: Discovery was announced. We received a title, logo, and a simple test flight video that many mistook for a final ship design. We were also given a premiere window of January 2017. Well, it’s mid-May and obviously that didn’t happen. The second premiere window of May is also being missed for a goal of Fall 2017.

This has made many fans skeptical of the show and the support CBS was or was not giving it. Well, I think many questions were answered today as CBS released official production stills and a first look trailer, in addition to adding two more episodes (15 instead of 13) to Discovery’s first season. To top that, they even announced Talking Trek, which will be a Talking Dead style talk show that also premieres this Fall.

[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”2″ gal_title=”Star Trek: Discovery First Look”]

Of course, many questions remain and there are some concerns from die-hard Prime timeline (pre-2009 movie) fans. For example, why do the Klingons look like that? and why do the interior ship and uniform designs look like the new movies? All good questions, especially given that CBS originally stated that Discovery would take place in the Prime timeline like all previous TV series, and not the Kelvin timeline where the three latest movies take place.

I want your thoughts! Watch the trailer below. Check out the images and then comment!

So what did you think? Are you excited for Star Trek: Discovery? Pumped? Bummed? Meh? Will you watch Talking Trek?

Let us know!

Star Trek: Discovery will premiere in the US on CBS and all remaining episodes will stream on CBS All-Access. Discovery will be available on Netflix in other territories.

Oh and live long and prosper. \\\///
