[Lower Decks review starts at 26:53]
Anthony and Laurie start with the great news that the WGA strike is over. Although the SAG-AFTRA strike continues, there can still be work done on Star Trek, so the podcasters break down what this could mean for each show, or even the next movie, which has bubbled to the surface once again as “still on the tracks.” They give an update about the swapped-out visual FX shot on the Star Trek: Picard DVD sets, then segue into their recent interview with Picard production designer Dave Blass, who has strong opinions about the urgency of booking Terry Matalas to develop a new Trek show with the Picard cast. They wrap up the news with a reminder about the new Prodigy DVD set.
This week’s reviews start with the latest very Short Treks episode (“It’s Holograms All The Way Down”), written by Prodigy co-EP Aaron Waltke. Both Tony and Laurie loved this one and hope fans give it a watch for all the layers of lore and cameos Aaron crammed into 90 seconds. After that, it’s time for their review of the newest episode of Lower Decks, “Empathalogical Fallacies.” Once again, the All Access team loved the episode. They appreciated that T’Lyn got her own storyline and had high praise for the guest stars and how jam-packed the episode is with little moments, fun nods, and heart.
They wrap up with a recommendation for a fun Lower Decks artist as a Twitter follow and an early TV appearance by a then unknown Brent Spiner.
