STLDP 003 – Temporal Edict (S1E3)

Brian and Kyle talk through the third episode of Star Trek: Lower Decks, titled Temporal Edict. The end of Buffer Time on the USS Cerritos brings a frazzled crew; a second contact for Ransom & Mariner goes badly and leads to deadly combat with a new Federation world. We both enjoyed this one, maybe a little less than the last but still good and we’re getting used to the show as a whole.

STLDP 002 – Envoys (S1E2)

We are unfortunately several days late this week, but we talk through the second episode of Star Trek: Lower Decks, titled Envoys. We both liked this one a lot better than the first episode. It had some real laugh out loud moments and some interesting character development. We’re enjoying the series so far and look forward to the next one.

STLDP 001 – Second Contact (S1E1)

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.

The search for Spock (no pun intended) hits a snag, as the Discovery encounters a big entity in space, the size of a small moon. The entity seems to bring on vaharai, the final cycle of life for Saru’s species, or so we think. Meanwhile, Tilly, Stamets and Reno work in Engineering, as May has retaliates.
