[Discovery review starts at 26:19]
Tony and Laurie start off with the news that Star Trek: Discovery will be taking a surprise mid-season hiatus, then round up the latest tidbits about Star Trek: Picard. They discuss the upcoming (and imminent) departure of five classic Star Trek series (TOS to Enterprise) from Amazon Prime and Hulu and will soon be found only on Paramount+, go over a new interview with Mike McMahan about Lower Decks, and talk about new sets, uniforms, cast members, and guest stars on The Orville: New Horizons, which arrives on Hulu in March.
Then it’s time to talk Discovery! (20:06) They chat about the new comic series that’ll kick off with Grudge’s backstory and remind American fans that TrekMovie still has a special Christmas giveaway of the Discovery 3 seasons collection. After a quick discussion of (and great appreciation for) Wil Wheaton’s interview with Jonathan Frakes on The Ready Room, they jump into their review of episode 406, “Stormy Weather.”
They wrap up with a look at a Star Trek-themed optometrist’s office, the 21st- century version of Retinax V, and a fascinating interview with everyone’s favorite Benzite, John Putch.
