STDP 028 – Star Trek Discovery – S2E3 – Point of Light

For this supersized episode 28 of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, Ruthie and I discuss Star Trek: Discovery – S2E3, which is titled, Point of Light. This episode is written by Andrew Colville, and directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi. This episode continues the search for Spock (no pun intended), Tilly’s new imaginary friend takes a wrong turn, we return to find L’Rell’s being challenged as Chancellor, reveals a secret to Tyler, and an unexpected ally comes to her rescue, as we get a taste of another Star Trek series!

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 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…
