They dig into Tony’s recent interview with Picard co-showrunner Terry Matalas, give intel on the show’s ships from  production designer Dave Blass, discuss the recent wrap of season 3 (and likely the series as a whole), plus look at new hints about the rest of season 2 from the latest promos.

Then they dig into comments from John de Lancie and Akiva Goldsman at last week’s Star Trek: Picard junket, discussing Q’s needs, the Borg Queen’s role, and Picard’s new-but-it’s-not-a-thing android body—and take a quick look at The Ready Room for more Picard clues—and chat about the new Prodigy toys coming from Playmates. Then it’s a deep dive into “The Galactic Barrier,” the latest episode of Star Trek: Discovery, which leans heavily into this season’s theme of uncertainty, leading into a Gilligan-inspired theory. They wrap up with a look at Doug Jones winning the very first The Chair award and Noah Averbach-Katz’s Kickstarter project, to be directed by Anthony Rapp.

In this All Access Star Trek supplemental, Tony and Laurie begin with their review of the new audio drama Star Trek: Picard: No Man’s Land which will be released on Tuesday, February 22nd. They then have a discussion [starting at the 17:24 mark] with co-writers writers Kirsten Beyer and Mike Johnson.

It features the two characters deepening the relationship hinted at the end of the season and going on a mission together with the Fenris Rangers. TrekMovie’s All Access Star Trek podcast had the opportunity to interview writers Kirsten Beyer (Star Trek: Picard co-creator, Discovery consultant, and novel writer) and Mike Johnson (writer of comics, games, and animation, who started his Trek career with the Star Trek: Countdown movie tie-in comics in 2009) to talk about how they put the story together, whether it’s considered canon, and how to make new characters pop in an audio-only format.

Tony was doing interviews on the red carpet on Star Trek Day while Laurie was watching the livestream, so they compare notes, covering the event as a whole, plus Alex Kurtzman’s new plans for the next Star Trek show. Then they go over all the new trailers, release dates, and news from the panels on Prodigy, Discovery, Picard, Strange New Worlds, and Lower Decks, discussing new characters, season storylines, and more. The podcasters then pivot to talk about their delight over this week’s episode of Lower Decks “An Embarrassment of Dooplers,” which marks the halfway point for season two.
