STLDP 016 – The Spy Humongous (S2E6)
Star Trek: Lower Decks – Season 2 Episode 6 – The Spy Humongous
We’re back! Brian and Kyle are joined later in the podcast by LT, and the three of them talk through Star Trek: Lower Decks S2E6, titled The Spy Humongous. This episode was written by John Cochran and directed by Bob Suarez.
The Pakleds are a funny alien species, but they are a bit problematic. If they are as dumb as they seem, how can they be a spacefaring civilization? We talked about that quite a bit this week. My take on the Pakleds is: Don’t overthink them too much. Once you start to question them, they kind of fall like a house of cards. They just don’t make a lot of sense.
Mary Lou and Dwight Berman exchange messages…
We’ve been graced with Mary Lou’s voicemails the last four episodes, and now Dwight Berman’s two voicemails. Will we have a love connection on this podcast? Stay tuned next week!
Easter Eggs – Courtesy of Yours Truly
Like most episodes of Lower Decks, this one is filled with Easter Eggs from Star Trek of old. This one was no different. I couldn’t find an article with them this week, so I found my own. I did find some with additional help last week, but this week, these are 100% my findings. Hopefully, you like the ones that I found.
