STDP 30 – Star Trek Discovery – S2E5 – Saints of Imperfection

For episode 30 of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, Ruthie is back, as we discuss Star Trek: Discovery – S2E5, which is titled, Saints of Imperfection. This episode is written by Kirsten Beyer, and directed by David Barrett. This episode continues the search for Spock (no pun intended), but comes up with a dead end, as Georgiou and Section 31 appear. Stamets and Burnham enter the network to rescue Tilly but end up finding another long lost character, too. By the way, we LOVED it!!! Read more…

STDP 029 – Star Trek Discovery – S2E4 – An Obol for Charon

For episode 29 of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, Ruthie is out sick, but we have special guest co-host Wes Huntington of the Minnesota Star Trek Nerd Podcast to co-host in her place, as we discuss Star Trek: Discovery – S2E4, which is titled, An Obol for Charon. The episode’s teleplay is by Adam McElroy and Andrew Colville. The episode’s story is by Jordon Nardino & Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts. It is directed by Lee Rose. The search for Spock (no pun intended) hits a snag, as the Discovery encounters a big entity in space, the size of a small moon. The entity seems to bring on vaharai, the final cycle of life for Saru’s species, or so we think. Meanwhile, Tilly, Stamets and Reno work in Engineering, as May has retaliates. Read more…

STDP 027 – Star Trek Discovery – S2E2 – New Eden

For episode 27 of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, Ruthie and I discuss Star Trek: Discovery – S2E2, which is titled, New Eden. The teleplay is by Vaun Wilmott & Sean Cochran, and story by Akiva Goldsman & Sean Cochran. It was directed by none other than Picard’s Number One, Jonathan Frakes, who of course played Commander William T. Riker in Star Trek: The Next Generation. He masterfully directs this nearly standalone story that still fits in the arc, yet feels like classic Star Trek! Read more…

STDP 026 – Star Trek Discovery – S2E1 – Brother

We love Captain Pike! For episode 26 of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, Ruthie and I discuss the Season 2 premiere of Star Trek: Discovery – S2E1, which is titled, Brother. It was written by Ted Sullivan & Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts (the latter two were the showrunners at the time this was filmed), and it was directed by the current showrunner and co-creator, Alex Kurtzman. We both loved this supersized movie-like premiere! If you haven’t given Discovery a try, this epic episode is one you can jump right in! Read more…

STDP 024 – Short Treks Episode 4 – The Escape Artist

STDP 024 – Short Treks Episode 4 – The Escape Artist

For episode 24 of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, we discuss the fourth Short Trek before Season 2, titled The Escape Artist, with a focus on Harry Mudd. With brilliant writing from the showrunner of Star Trek: Lower Decks, Mike McMahan, and a stellar performance by Rainn Wilson both in front of and behind the camera, this has become my favorite of the Short Treks!

STDP 023 – Short Treks Episode 3 – The Brightest Star

STDP 023 – Short Treks Episode 3 – The Brightest Star

For episode 23 of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, we discuss the third Short Trek, with a focus on Saru. I loved this one, but Ruthie isn’t a fan of Saru, so she only thought it was fine. Like the last Short Trek, it was well written and acted, and explains some things about Saru’s species well, but other things not at all, and it had a very unexpected cameo from a favorite captain.

STDP 022 – Short Treks Episode 2 – Calypso

For episode 22 of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, we discuss the second Short Trek, with a focus on the Discovery itself, and a new character we may never see again. Ruthie and I both loved this one. It was well written and acted, although it creates some weird canon. How’d Discovery get there? Why has it been undisturbed all this time? How did it become what it became? Read more…

We’re finally back! Ruthie and I are back with The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, with the first of four mini-episodes, covering the Short Treks. We recorded the first three all on the same night, and we’ll be releasing them over the holidays. For this one, episode 21, we discuss the first Short Trek, with a focus on Ensign Sylvia Tilly, titled Runaway. Ruthie loved it, whereas I liked it but found a couple things to take issue with, one thing in particular. Read more…
