For episode 27 of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, Ruthie and I discuss Star Trek: Discovery – S2E2, which is titled, New Eden. The teleplay is by Vaun Wilmott & Sean Cochran, and story by Akiva Goldsman & Sean Cochran. It was directed by none other than Picard’s Number One, Jonathan Frakes, who of course played Commander William T. Riker in Star Trek: The Next Generation. He masterfully directs this nearly standalone story that still fits in the arc, yet feels like classic Star Trek!
