Like we did last season, for the run of Star Trek: Discovery season two The Shuttle Pod will again transform into Shuttle Pod At The Disco with weekly podcasts discussing each new episode.
Shuttle Pod At The Disco – Season 2, Episode 4 – “An Obol For Charon”
Star Trek: Discovery Season 2, Episode 4
This week Kayla, Matt, and TrekMovie editor Laurie discuss “An Obol For Charon.” As with most Discovery episodes, there’s a lot going on: We get our first few moments with Number One, right before the ship encounters a huge sphere–a classic Trek mysterious entity that’s misunderstood. Saru goes through a change of life and exposes a truth that his society has obscured with mythology, while Stamets and Reno face off in a delightful exchange of barbs, then team up to solve a crisis. Tilly’s “friend” May morphs into a symbiont, and we learn from some painful head drilling that she’s a member of a sentient species that lives in the mycelial network. Ouch.
