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. We enjoyed this expositional Trill episode combined with an old-fashioned dysfunctional Thanksgiving dinner. All in all, this was a very enjoyable episode.

STDP 050 – People of Earth (S3E3)

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.

STDP 049 – Far From Home (S3E2)

Brian, and Ruthie talk through Star Trek: Discovery S3E2, titled Far From Home. The USS Discovery has arrived in the 32nd Century, and not everything has gone well. They land on a very inhospitable world, nowhere near where they planned, and don’t know when they are. This episode was another good one.

STDP 040 – Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2 (S2E14, 2 of 3)

It’s episode 40 of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, and Ruthie and Brian continue their analysis and discuss your feedback for Star Trek: Discovery – S2E14, which is titled Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2; this time, focussing on No’s and Hold Your Horses. This episode was written by Michelle Paradise & Jenny Lumet & Alex Kurtzman, and directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi. Like last week, this episode is a shining example of an episode being greater than the sum of its parts, but we isolate the parts that aren’t as good or at least make us question.
