[Lower Decks review starts at 39:35]
Tony and Laurie look for clues in the latest images on social from the Star Trek: Picard set and mention James McAvoy’s wish to join the franchise as a young Jean-Luc Picard. They mine Tony’s interview with Anson Mount for info on Strange New Worlds (and listen to a little of it), check out new character images from Prodigy, and cover Tony’s interview with Discovery‘s Wilson Cruz, Blu del Barrio, and Ian Alexander. They discuss the changes in management at Paramount and how that might affect future Star Trek films as well as the potential for an IATSE strike that would impact current production.
The podcasters celebrate getting a premiere date for the new season of The Orville and discuss Laurie’s interview with Voyager writer Lisa Klink as well as William Shatner’s latest projects, which include a reboot of TekWar and a possible journey into space. They talk about the new TOS book, Star Trek – A Celebration, and wrap up the news with a look at Tony’s interview with Carl Tart (Kayshon) from Lower Decks.
They review the newest episode of Lower Decks, “I, Excretus,” and while they both really enjoyed it, they have a minor disagreement on its resolution. They wrap up the podcast with a look at a Voyager/science-related practical joke that became canon on Lower Decks and an artist who makes spectacular use of her Star Trek action figures.
