Star Trek: Discovery – Season 2, Episode 12: Through the Valley of Shadows


For episode 37 of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, Ruthie and I discuss Season 2 Episode 12 of Star Trek: Discovery, which is titled, Through the Valley of Shadows. This episode was written by Bo Yeon Kim & Erika Lippoldt, and it was directed by Douglas Aarniokoski. This is the third time the writers have worked with Aarniokoski, as he also directed their Short Trek, The Brightest Star, and S2E6, The Sound of Thunder.

Discussion on Through the Valley of Shadows begins at 20:11…

We begin the podcast with feedback from the previous episode, and we had quite a lot of it. We get into this episode 20 minutes 11 seconds into the podcast.

Fred’s Pics!

We have been blessed yet again with pics chosen by Fred from The Netherlands, including the cover image. We thought last week’s experiment was a big hit, so we’re going to do it again, and let Fred’s pics do the talking for us!

Before you look at pics from Through the Valley of Shadows…

We both loved this episode, one of the better ones of Season 2. We’ll be back next week with our next episode. As always, your feedback is essential to this podcast! We’ve had a short feedback deadline most weeks this season. We’ll cover more feedback from S2E12 Through the Valley of Shadows, so do not hesitate to send in your feedback if you miss the deadline. For Star Trek: Discovery S2E13, which is titled Such Sweet Sorrow, the deadline to get in your feedback is Friday, April 12, 2019, at 6 PM Eastern/5 PM Central or 10 PM UTC. You can submit feedback via the GSM Feedback page, Facebook Group, Twitter, you can email startrekgsm at gmail dot com, or call the GSM voicemail at (304) 837-2278 and leave us a message there. Make sure to mention you’re calling The Star Trek Discovery Podcast when you call. We would like to keep our episodes down to a more reasonable podcast length. To help with this, we’d like you to focus on a few key points, rather than discussing everything about the episode. If submitting a voicemail, please try to keep your calls to 4 minutes or less, with an absolute maximum of 5 minutes. We would like to keep our episodes under 2 hours! Please help with that!
