[Prodigy review starts at 13:44]
Tony and Laurie, as always, start with the news: Discovery and Picard picked up three Saturn awards, the new Center Seat documentary premieres in November, and you can expect (at some point) to see Lower Decks books and comics. They talk about the SyFy Sistas’ takeover of the Shuttle Pod podcast and Tony tells Laurie about his evening at the Star Trek: Prodigy premiere event in Los Angeles.
And at last, they review the Prodigy premiere, talking about the characters, the story, the animation, the music, and the Star Trekness of it all—and Tony’s niece and nephew Ani (age 12) and David (age 9) chime in as Star Trek newbies (and the target audience for the show).
They wrap up with a look at politicians in an age-old debate (Star Trek vs. Star Wars) and an upcoming Prodigy event Laurie’s hosting on Zoom.
