Shuttle Pod 38: From Steampunk Transporter Rooms to Comic-Cons – Catching Up On The Latest ‘Discovery’ News

If you haven’t been reading the nerd news over the past couple of weeks, you may have come back to realize that you’ve missed a lot. Things are really starting to ramp up toward the premiere of Star Trek: Discovery, and with more and more news coming out all the time, it can be difficult to keep up. This week, Kayla, Matt, and Brian of the Shuttle Pod crew talk the latest in DSC news and give their thoughts on the developments.

This week’s Shuttle Pod Enhanced!

All the news that’s fit to cast

Since Kayla has been away for the past month with little internet access, she may as well have been under a rock. Matt and Brian take this episode of the Shuttle Pod to catch her up on the latest news, including the announcement of a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, our first look at Captain Lorca, new images of Michael Burnham and Captain Georgiou in spiffy new field uniforms (standing in a rather steam-punk transporter room), Frakes slated as director, and of course: DSC’s premiere date! (September 24th, for those keeping score).

New Star Trek TV show! Woo!!

Visually it all looks pretty good, and I kind of like the idea that they are doing a few things differently than the previous series. I’m definitely ready, bring on the premiere…

I was jones’in for another podcast from you guys – great one! So looking forward to this, can hardly wait!

P.S. Would it be possible to meet anyone from trekmovie at STLV? Ping me via email if so, thanks!

Hi Doug. A handful of us will be there! Would love to meet you! Come say hi if you see us :)

Welcome back Kayla.

Hope your holiday was fun.

Another fine podcast, you’re all doing a great job. I missed Jared, though, I hope we’ll be hearing him again soon.

Thanks for listening, everyone! We greatly appreciate it!

A volcanic rock, of course.
