STLDP 016 – The Spy Humongous (S2E6)

Kyle and Brian are joined later in the podcast by LT and the three of them talk through Lower Decks S2E6 The Spy Humongous.

STDP 051 – Forget Me Not (S3E4)

Ruthie couldn’t join us again this week, so Brian and guest host LT from The Walking Dead Talk Through talk through S3E4 of Star Trek: Discovery, titled Forget Me Not.

Ruthie couldn’t join us this week, so Brian had guests LT from The Walking Dead Talk Through and long-time listener James the Augmented Sailor join him to talk through S3E3 of Star Trek: Discovery, titled People of Earth. We enjoyed this expositional episode, but not as much as the first two. Earth has gone through a lot of changes since 2258, but it’s strangely more like modern-day Earth than the one we see in the 23rd Century.

STLDP 010 – No Small Parts (S1E10)

Brian, and Kyle talk through the season finale of Star Trek: Lower Decks S1E10, titled No Small Parts. Now that Boimler knows Mariner’s secret, it doesn’t take long for the rest of the crew to know, too. With the last several episodes being outstanding, we had some trepidation about this episode. Would Mike McMahan and crew stick the landing? We think YES!!! THEY DID!!!

Instead, the Cerritos gets a substitute Captain, and it’s an Academy classmate of Mariner’s, Captain Adira Ramsey.

My TWDTT/FTWDTT co-host Kyle McAdams and I bring you this new animated show on CBS All Access. Ruthie will be back for Discovery in October. This episode, we talk through the first episode of Star Trek: Lower Decks, titled Second Contact. This one was pretty much a split vote. I loved it and thought it was very respectful to the TNG era of the 1990’s. Kyle had a lot of issues with it, especially the pacing and format.
