[Picard episode review starts at 22:55] Tony and Laurie are joined by Jonathan Frakes for part of the podcast this week! He talks about the PanCAN PurpleStride walk taking place on April 29 and how important it is to keep funding research to fight pancreatic cancer, how he and his TNG co-stars didn’t “dare hope” that they’d get to do what they’ve been doing on Star Trek: Picard, and what it was like filming THAT scene in episode 309. He also raves about the Strange New Worlds/Lower Decks crossover episode he directed and describes a new project he’s hoping will come to fruition with Brent Spiner. News-wise, Laurie and Tony talk about the upcoming IMAX screenings for episodes 9  and 10 of Picard (and the accompanying kerfuffle), and review Picard episode 9, “Võx,” discussing the revelations about Jack, the Frontier Day plans to take over Starfleet, the surprise guest star, the surprise death, and that classic ship. They wrap up with a new Star Trek event from the folks at The 7th Rule and a particularly fun episode of the Trek, Marry, Kill podcast.

Tony and Laurie talk about new character posters for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and new Trek merch (including the TNG movies on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray), then dig into the latest on Picard, from Terry Matalas’ assurance that Kirk will not be making an appearance on the show (beyond the remains we saw at Daystrom) to his description of the show as a proper send-off for the TNG crew. After playing some of the audio from Tony’s interview with Brent Spiner—who talks about Data’s evolution as well as his feline colleague—it’s time to review the latest Picard episode, “Surrender.” Laurie and Tony enjoyed it thoroughly, especially the way it moved the story forward and gave us great character moments along the way, although they’re both impatiently waiting to learn the full story about Jack. They wrap things up with an April Fools’ Day joke from Prodigy EP Aaron Waltke and fun Voyager guest star trivia.

Anthony’s busy with the Picard premiere, so in lieu of a regular episode of the podcast, here’s Laurie’s interview with John Billingsley, Enterprise‘s Dr. Phlox. The interview was done to help promote TREKtalks2, a yearly fundraiser for the Hollywood Food Coalition that brings Star Trek celebs from both in front of and behind camera together for a marathon of panels and discussions. In addition to discussing the event, Laurie and John talked extensively about Star Trek: Enterprise, covering the character of Phlox, whether the show was sexist or just sexy (or both), the chance of Phlox appearing on current Star Trek shows, the perils of being on UPN during a tumultuous time in TV, and the season John wasn’t a big fan of, along with the joys of becoming part of the eternal world of Star Trek. Just a heads up: There’s swearing in here, and we have left it as is, neither bleeping nor deleting.
