Tony and Laurie dig into the latest news: Kate Mulgrew revealed the setup for Star Trek: Prodigy, writing wrapped up on season 4 of Star Trek: Discovery, and Tig Notaro (Jett Reno) is back on set in Toronto this week. They also give some updates on Star Trek merchandise: books, comics, games, and home video.
Then they use Dr. Erin McDonald’s new interview on the official Star Trek podcast (as she mentions working on six Trek shows at once) and Shazad Latif’s mention of “rumblings” for the long-in-development Section 31 show as jumping-off point for some speculation on what to do with Michelle Yeoh’s Emperor Georgiou. They go through all the options: Georgiou heading up her own series, starring in a feature film, leading a miniseries, and doing guest spots on the other Trek shows. Beyond Section 31, they also ponder alternative show premises for they might prefer to see her in.
