Star Trek: Strange New Worlds – Season 1 Episode 5 – Spock Amok

Brian here! And we’re back! Joining LT and me is Wes Huntington of the Twin Cities Trekkies Podcast, as we talk through Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, Season 1 Episode 5, titled Spock Amok. This episode was written by co-executive producer Henry Alonso Myers & Robin Wasserman, and Rachel Leiterman directed it. This episode had a great homage to Amok Time, while also being a good character-based romantic comedy. We all LOVED this episode, but I didn’t like it as much as Wes and LT did. However, watching using low bandwidth on my cellphone, my viewing experience wasn’t optimal, and I (correctly) thought it affected my impressions of the episode, especially on my first watch. NOTE: Since recording the episode, I finally got to watch it on the big screen, and my rating and overall impression did go up.

We still haven’t recorded the finale yet…

Episodes 6-9 have been recorded and released to Patreon subscribers. We will work on getting those edited episodes out in the next couple of weeks and are being worked on. We have not yet recorded our episode for the finale yet, so if you’re reading this and have feedback, send your feedback ASAP! After those come out, we’ll get the remaining Picard episodes out.

Technical Problems…

You shouldn’t notice anything but the iPad was causing us issues. I had to replace all of the sound effects during the editing process.
