[Anthony Rapp section begins at 33:20]
After a quick reminder that it’s NEXT week’s episode that will cover Comic-Con@Home, Tony and Laurie discuss this week’s Star Trek news, which includes the surprising news that producers were interested in bringing Voyager’s Tom Paris to Star Trek: Picard. They also discuss Brent Spiner’s joy at working with Jonathan Frakes again, and the latest on the Section 31 show, plus production updates on Strange New Worlds and Star Trek: Discovery.
Then they dig into the main topic: Anthony’s new interview with Discovery’s Anthony Rapp, who talks about Stamets’ character arc across the seasons and his conflict with Burnham, being directed by Jonathan Frakes, the new uniforms, his thoughts on a musical episode, and more.
They wrap up with some real-life Star Trek science and a reminder that LeVar Burton’s run on Jeopardy! begins Monday, July 26.
