Ruthie and Brian discuss the finale of the Season 2 Short Treks, Children of Mars, written by Kirsten Beyer & Jenny Lumet & Alex Kurtzman, and directed by Mark Pellington. This Short Trek is categorized as an episode of The Star Trek Picard Cast because it has ties to Star Trek: Picard. We both loved it, Brian probably more than Ruthie.
The Star Trek Picard Cast is a new podcast on Talk Through Media. We will do in-depth discussions about Star Trek: Picard, the new CBS All Access series that is set to premiere on January 23, 2020. It will also be shown on Space and Crave TV in Canada, and Amazon Prime everywhere else. We’re Brian Meloche and Ruthie Rink; we’re two long-time Star Trek fans, especially of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Each episode, we will analyze 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. Our listeners are very important to us. Your feedback will be an essential part of this podcast, just like it is on The Star Trek Discovery Podcast now! Thanks for listening!
For the second episode of The Star Trek Picard Cast, Brian and Ruthie focus on the other Star Trek characters that are returning for Picard that aren’t Picard. We speculate on what they might be doing on the show. We also speculate on what other characters we think might also return to Picard, and what other characters we’d like to see return.
Welcome to the first episode of The Star Trek Picard Cast! We bring you this introduction to us, Brian Meloche and Ruthie Rink, if you don’t know us already from The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, and details everything we know so far about Star Trek: Picard!
