All Access Star Trek: “Temporal Edict” – Review Of ‘Lower Decks’ Episode 103

This week on the podcast, Tony and Laurie look at Alex Kurtzman’s latest comments on Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and CBS All Access’ plans for world streaming domination. Then they dig into the third episode of Lower Decks, asking if the premise relies too heavily on one bad, very un-Starfleet decision by Captain Freeman, and picking out their favorite jokes and references.
