STDP 048 – That Hope Is You, Part 1 (S3E1)

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!!!

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.

For episode 30 of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, Ruthie is back, as we discuss Star Trek: Discovery – S2E5, which is titled, Saints of Imperfection.
