This week, Anthony and Laurie talk about the newest additions to the Star Trek: Discovery cast, discuss the possibilities of a Short Treks/Captain Proton team-up, and preview the online festivities happening on Star Trek Day (September 8th). They also dig into “Cupid’s Errant Arrow,” the latest episode of Star Trek: Lower Decks, to figure out why it’s so much better on its second viewing and how it connects to Shakespeare and Robert Altman. Before they wrap up, they reveal a fun connection that almost happened between Star Trek and Parks and Recreation.
