All Access: Review Of ‘Star Trek: Prodigy’ Episode 19 “Supernova, Part 1”

Anthony and Laurie kick off the news with Anson Mount’s comments about Strange New Worlds’ take on Star Trek idealism and the issues raised in the season 1 finale, then recommend a look at the IDW comic miniseries that takes place between seasons 1 and 2 of the show. They mine Terry Matalas’ latest Twitter comments about Picard for hints about season 3, and then they’re ready to talk Prodigy. They enthusiastically review “Supernova, Part 1” and Tony makes his predictions for part 2 (which Laurie shouldn’t have watched already, but did). They wrap up the pod with Christmas and Hanukkah wishes for all, plus a playful interview with Zoe Saldaña and behind-the-scenes tidbits from Voyager guest star Kim Rhodes.
