[Discovery review starts at 21:43]
Tony and Laurie are both interested in the PC/console game Star Trek: Resurgence coming out this spring, so they talk about that as well as the latest images from the Star Trek: The Motion Picture – Director’s Edition 4K, which also arrives next year. They talk about William Shatner being officially designated as an astronaut and the documentary about his trip to space, which premiered just this week. Then they take a dive into the business side of Paramount +: Heather Kadin’s departure, Aaron Baiers’ promotion, the launch of new live channels—especially the Star Trek one, of course—and the news that Star Trek: Discovery is their most-watched original series.
Spoiler alert: The next few topics of discussion (starting at 10:15) come from a panel this week at NYC’s 92nd Street Y, where Alex Kurtzman hinted at the show’s long-term plans and Olatunde Osunsanmi dropped some unexpected intel on what’s behind the season’s “big bad.” The podcasters also discuss Michelle Paradise’s reassurance that Tilly will be returning, and dispel a few rumors. After that, they review the newest episode of Discovery, “The Examples,” which they both enjoyed. They wrap up the podcast with a look at more of Leonard Nimoy’s legacy (which involves a trip to space), and a new Michelle Yeoh movie.
Let us know what you think of the episode in the comments, and please post your suggestions for topics we should cover in the future as well as guests you’d like us to have on.
