All Access Star Trek: “Cupid’s Errant Arrow” – ‘Lower Decks’ Episode 105 Review

This week, Anthony and Laurie talk about the newest additions to the Star Trek: Discovery cast, discuss the possibilities of a Short Treks/Captain Proton team-up, and preview the online festivities happening on Star Trek Day (September 8th). They also dig into “Cupid’s Errant Arrow,” the latest episode of Star Trek: Lower Decks, to figure out why it’s so much better on its second viewing. Before they wrap up, they reveal a fun connection that almost happened between Star Trek and Parks and Recreation.
