[Strange New Worlds news and review starts at 16:05]
Tony and Laurie start with an update from Paramount studio chief Brian Robbins on the next Star Trek movie, enhanced by Simon Pegg’s “I don’t f-ing know” comment (and enthusiasm for filming the movie) at FedCon in Germany. Then they discuss Marina Sirtis’ report on the great send-off the TNG cast is getting in Picard season 3 (vs. how things went in Star Trek: Nemesis), Prodigy executive producer Aaron Waltke’s explanations about the USS Dauntless, and the imminent return to production of Discovery. They recommend the latest episode of The Shuttle Pod podcast, talk about the 20-pound Enterprise in the room made by TOMY, then cover the latest news on Strange New Worlds, including a guest appearance by Jesse James Keitel, more info on Kirk’s presence in season 2, and the future appearance of Dr. Roger Korby. Then they jump into their review of SNW episode 6, “Lift Us Where Suffering Cannot Reach.” They wrap up with a look at Wrath of Khan ice cream (and other related festivities), and a surprise Star Trek connection between TOS matte artist Albert Whitlock and the great Mel Brooks.
