STDP 036 – Perpetual Infinity (S2E11)

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 2, Episode 11: Perpetual Infinity

For episode 36 of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, Ruthie and I discuss Season 2 Episode 11 of Star Trek: Discovery, which is titled, Perpetual Infinity. This episode was written by Alan McElroy & Brandon Schultz, and it was directed by Maja Vrvilo. She directed the first Short Trek.

Discussion on Perpetual Infinity begins at 8:37…

We begin the podcast with feedback from the previous episode. We get into this episode 8 minutes 37 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 Perpetual Infinity…

We both loved this episode, although maybe not quite as much as last week’s episode. We’ll be back next week with our next episode. As always, your feedback is essential to this podcast! We’ll be having a short feedback deadline most weeks this season, due to scheduling issues. We’ll cover more feedback from S2E11 Perpetual Infinity, so do not hesitate to send in your feedback if you miss the deadline. For Star Trek: Discovery S2E12, the deadline to get in your feedback is Friday, April 5, 2019, at 6 PM Eastern/5 PM Central or 11 PM UTC. You can submit feedback via the feedback page, Facebook Group, Twitter, you can email startrekgsm at gmail dot com, or call the GSM voicemail at (216) 236-5449 and leave us a message there. Make sure to mention you’re calling The Star Trek Discovery Podcast when you call. I’m also podcasting on The Walking Dead. Because of this schedule, we are trying to get our episodes down to a more reasonable podcast length. To help with this, we’d like you to focus on a few key points from the episode, 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!
