[Episode review starts at 15:30]
Tony and Laurie talk about Star Trek’s nominations in the new Critics Choice Super Awards, production plans for Star Trek: Picard and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, ViacomCBS’s sale of Simon & Schuster, and the late great Herb Solow. In their review of Star Trek: Discovery‘s “Unification III,” they appreciate the nods to Star Trek’s legacy and speculate about what it means to be an “acting” first officer. Tony also recommends a video that proves Burnham isn’t the only Starfleet officer who has a problem with the chain of command.

Tony: Does Star Trek Actually Believe in the Chain of Command? by Steve Shives
Laurie: Kirsten Beyer on location at Kelso Conservation Area in Ontario for the Discovery first season episode “Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum“:
From my first day on location and the first day I worked with Sonequa and Shazad. Sonequa offered, very kindly, to take a photo of me with the falls in the background. Shazad said he wanted to be in it too, which I was all for. And then he struck this pose as if he had something terribly important to say to me. Or as if, perhaps, he had never seen a writer in the wild. It is so strange, but is one of my favorite memories from the shoot.
