Tony and Laurie return after a 4th of July hiatus for the 47th episode of All Access Star Trek, and they catch up on all the news on the Star Trek Universe TV shows, including a preview of the Lower Decks and Prodigy panels at Comic-Con@Home, an update on Strange New Worlds from Anson Mount, clues in the latest Star Trek: Picard tie-in novel synopsis, and then even more Picard clues from John de Lancie. Also up for discussion is the status of Discovery production and whether or not the cast will be able to make it to the big Las Vegas Trek convention in August. They round out new Star Trek show news with the observation that Michelle Yeoh keeps picking up new jobs and not working on that Section 31 show.
They’re also excited about the news that Robert Wise’s Director’s Edition of Star Trek: The Motion Picture is finally being remastered into 4K HDR for Paramount+, along with the first four Star Trek movies getting a 4K HDR release on Blu-ray. And Star Trek IV is headed back to theaters in August for a special two-day event.
But wait, there’s more! They dive into more news: Simon Pegg is working on a Galaxy Quest TV show, Marina Sirtis thinks Michael Dorn’s Captain Worf show should be the next Trek series, LeVar Burton laments that Geordi never got the girl on TNG, and Ethan Phillips still wishes a deleted Neelix/Kes breakup scene had made it into Voyager.
The pod wraps up with Dave Bautista’s proclamation that he would make a great Klingon, plus we indulge in some nostalgia for the Star Trek: The New Voyages short story collections from the ’70s.
