RR19: The Georgiou Within, the Saru Without

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?

RR08: Cloaks, Jumps, and Doug Jones

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.

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.

Come to Kansas City Comic Con November 10-12 and see us at booth #643! Three of the shows on the network will also be hosting live panel episodes! Hit up our Facebook page for details.
