STDP 054 – Unification III (S3E7)

Ruthie and Brian talk through S3E7 of Star Trek: Discovery, titled Unification III. The USS Discovery arrives on Vulcan, but it’s now called Ni’Var, and the Vulcans share the planet with Romulans, who have unified just as Spock had wished for centuries ago. They hold data for The Burn, but getting it from them turns into a process that may begin to tear them apart.

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.

We finally get to see the bridge of the Enterprise, as an armada of Section 31 ships, close in, and Burnham and a skeleton crew prepare to send Discovery into the future. We both loved this episode, even with its flaws. It’s a shining example of an episode being greater than the sum of its parts.
