Star Trek: Lower Decks – Season 2 Episode 7 – Where Pleasant Fountains Lie

We’re back! Brian, Kyle, and LT talk through Star Trek: Lower Decks S2E7, titled Where Pleasant Fountains Lie. This episode was written by Garrick Bernard and directed by Jason Zarek. This one is late in coming. We apologize.

Prince Billups

It was a bit of a weird Ren Faire episode this week. Billups is royalty, and he must take the throne if he is no longer a virgin. Talk about TMI. In fact, this story didn’t do it for me at all. It was a turn off.

Jeffrey Combs is back!

We love Jeffrey Combs, and he was perfect as the evil computer. We hope he will be back to play this or some other character! The Mariner/Boimler/evil computer, in contrast to the Billups story, was really good. I do disagree with LT though. I LOVE black licorice!

Easter Eggs – Courtesy of Yours Truly (Mostly)

Like last week, I came up with most of the Easter Eggs myself, about 90% of them, and there are a LOT of them, but I did find this video to fill out what I didn’t find, from the What Did I Miss YouTube channel, Hopefully, you like the ones that I found/presented.
