Star Trek Picard Talk Through

Hosted ByBrian Meloche & Ruthie Rink & Laurence Todd

The Star Trek Picard Talk Through is an in-depth, long-form, community-driven episode discussion of Star Trek: Picard, the new series shown on Paramount+ in the US, Australia, Latin America and parts of Europe, CTV Sci-Fi Channel & Crave TV in Canada and Amazon Prime everywhere else. We’re Brian Meloche, Ruthie Rink, and Laurence Todd; we're three long-time Star Trek fans, especially of Star Trek: The Next Generation. We cover the story, characters, and the show’s placement both within the Trek universe and the continuation of the life of legendary Federation Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Together with our listeners, we rate each episode, discuss the highs, lows, and share other thoughts. Thanks for listening!

Star Trek: Picard – Season 2 Episode 1 – The Star Gazer

We’re finally back!!! It’s been nearly two years since the last episode of The Star Trek Picard Cast, and we are back way later than expected due to my move, this episode of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, Ruthie and I talk through Star Trek: Picard, Season 2 Episode 1, titled The Star Gazer. This episode was written by Akiva Goldsman & Terry Matalas and it was directed by Doug Aarniokoski. Picard is summoned by a species he knows too well, only to be greeted by another foe from his past.

Thanks Kim of Rebinge DS9/Prodigy!

Kim of the Rebinge DS9 Podcast and Star Trek Prodigy – a RebingeIt Podcast was kind enough again to edit this episode for us. Please be warned that there is a DS9 spoiler near the end of this episode.

This episode doesn’t have the regular news in it. You can news from that week found here.

Disco is next!

We have two more episodes of Discovery left in the season to cover, and we’ve decided we’re going to cover those final two episodes next and then keep the focus on Picard for the rest of its season. So the next two episodes you will see if you subscribe to the Discovery podcast feed. However, not everyone does subscribe to that feed, so we’ll be recprdomg S2E2 next.
