STLDP 010 – No Small Parts (S1E10)

Brian, and Kyle talk through the season finale of Star Trek: Lower Decks S1E10, titled No Small Parts. Now that Boimler knows Mariner’s secret, it doesn’t take long for the rest of the crew to know, too. With the last several episodes being outstanding, we had some trepidation about this episode. Would Mike McMahan and crew stick the landing? We think YES!!! THEY DID!!!

STLDP 007 – Much Ado About Boimler (S1E7)

Brian & Kyle discuss Lower Decks S1E7, titled Much Ado About Boimler. From the title, you may think this was a Boimler episode, but his character was very much a part of the B story this week. Instead, the Cerritos gets a substitute Captain, and it’s an Academy classmate of Mariner’s, Captain Adira Ramsey.

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 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.
