All Access: Review Of ‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’ Episode 309 “Trusted Sources” + Abandoned ‘Star Trek 4’ Plot Details

Anthony and Laurie cover the recent reveal of the “Star Trek 4” storyline that would’ve brought Chris Hemsworth back into Star Trek movies (but it didn’t happen), with more details from the screenwriters.  They talk about the Next Generation cast’s interest in Picard spin-offs, Anson Mount’s latest description of the upcoming wildness on Strange New Worlds season 2, and the Prodigy producers’ thoughts on character growth, legacy characters, and toys from TrekMovie’s interview with them at New York Comic Con. They cover the latest in games (Star Trek Prodigy: Supernova is out while Resurgence is delayed), celebrate Outfest’s Visionary Award for the Star Trek franchise, and go over the latest in international launches for Paramount Plus.

Then it’s time for their review of Lower Decks‘ “Trusted Sources,” which is something of a mixed bag. (Lower Decks review starts at 20:19)

They wrap things up with a canon-affirming tweet from Jack Quaid with George Takei, and a cute-affirming Instagram post from Anson Mount with his irresistible baby.
