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 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.

For episode 30 of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, Ruthie is back, as we discuss Star Trek: Discovery – S2E5, which is titled, Saints of Imperfection. This episode is written by Kirsten Beyer, and directed by David Barrett. This episode continues the search for Spock (no pun intended), but comes up with a dead end, as Georgiou and Section 31 appear. Stamets and Burnham enter the network to rescue Tilly but end up finding another long lost character, too. By the way, we LOVED it!!!
