STDP 045 – The Trouble with Edward (Short Treks S2E2)

We’re back! Ruthie and Brian are back with the second of six Season 2 Short Treks, this time covering The Trouble with Edward. This one’s part Tribble origin story, part farce, and all funny. Despite it being a Short Trek, we had a LOT to say!!! We both loved it but Brian let his new alter-ego character onto the podcast again, Nitpicking Brian, to speak about all the things the nitpicking side of him had issues with. He fights with Ruthie and regular Brian about why they think it was a great episode but he doesn’t.

STDP 026 – Brother (S2E1)

We love Captain Pike! For episode 26 of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, Ruthie and I discuss the Season 2 premiere of Star Trek: Discovery – S2E1, which is titled, Brother. It was written by Ted Sullivan & Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts (the latter two were the showrunners at the time this was filmed), and it was directed by the current showrunner and co-creator, Alex Kurtzman. We both loved this supersized movie-like premiere! If you haven’t given Discovery a try, this epic episode is one you can jump right in!
