Another week, another all-new episode discussion for STAR TREK: DISCOVERY!
Listen as our bold panel of STAR TREK franchise explorers — Chris Clow (Movies.com, Comics on Consoles), Rachael Clow (Biology PhD candidate), Zaki Hasan (Zaki's Corner, MovieFilm Podcast), and Cicero Holmes (Spawn On Me Cast) — unpacks "New Eden," the second episode of season two. With the revival of some well-worn STAR TREK franchise tropes, the creative teams and production personnel in the series probably turn in the most "traditional" DISCOVERY episode yet, while still managing to make things fit well within the show we know pretty well by this point. Does familiarity help or hinder the proceeding, and how would our panel apply the Prime Directive in this instance? Find out by listening!
PLUS, we return to an old, favorite topic of STAR TREK NEMESIS in our news roundup, but also go back down memory lane to 2016 to revisit how Paramount Pictures utterly botched the arrival of STAR TREK's 50th anniversary. This and more awaits you in this episode of DISCOVERY DEBRIEF!
