We enter the future year of 2019 to discuss the final Short Treks of its first season, “The Escape Artist”. Known as the Mudd episode, “The Escape Artist” features Rainn Wilson’s Harry Mudd. Wilson also directed the Short Treks episode.

Additionally, we talk about some of our hopes and concerns about Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 as we bid farewell to Rae and Zach, at least for now, as Greg is set to return next week!

We’ll be back next week with the return of Greg, plus a more detailed discussion on recent Star Trek news and the new season of Discovery!

RR38: Discovery & Short Treks

RR06 – Space Whales and Time Travel

It wouldn’t be Star Trek without a convoluted time travel plot, which Discovery delivers with episode 7, “Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad.” This week, we are joined by cosplayer and Trek aficionado Michael Nguyen (sitting in for Derreck). We start the episode with a discussion of our favorite time travel themed episodes with a TNG classic and a couple of chroniton-packed DS9 episodes.

Then, we take our discussion to the details and plot points of “Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad,” as well as some good-natured griping about the current state of pop culture criticism regarding Discovery. We discuss the music of Wyclef Jean, beer pong, and Trojan space whales. We also highlight our favorite Staments line so far, “As days go, this is a weird one.”

Join our three-man crew for a journey that will span decades, every episode, every series, every movie, and every possible timeline no matter how small.

We discuss the details of Lorca’s plot with Mudd, the interactions between Saru and Burnham, plus Stamets relationship is revealed.

RR04: Choose Your Harry Mudd

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.

« 1 of 16 »

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. \\\///
