Star Trek: Discovery S2E4 Review: “An Obol for Charon”

This week the Discovery is waylaid by a red murderball, Saru learns what his threat ganglia are really for, all of engineering gets high on mushrooms, and Number One orders a hamburger. Scott and Jason break down this (overly?) busy episode.

Star Trek Discovery S2E3: “Point of Light”

A very different kind of episode this week, as “Star Trek: Discovery” beams in three different plots. Do we really need more Klingons? What’s happening in the search for Spock? And is Tilly’s friend a friendly ghost or a dangerous alien spore blob? It’s also time to bring back the conspiracy corner segment, because Jason has some theories about the Red Angel.

Star Trek: Discovery S2E2 Review: “New Eden”

This week the Discovery takes a spore jump to a mysterious human colony deep in the Beta Quadrant, Pike and Burnham joust about science and religion, Tilly drinks too much espresso and tries to replace Stamets with a space rock, and Saru gets a chance to practice his “Glare ‘n’ Care” management philosophy. And on our podcast, Scott introduces a new segment that somehow we didn’t call “The Search for Spock,” even though we probably should have.

Star Trek: Discovery S2E1 Review: “Brother”

“Star Trek: Discovery” is back and so are Scott and Jason. We discuss Captain Pike and his uniform, Tilly’s chatter, Burnham’s family issues, the decor of Spock’s quarters, and much more!

Star Trek: Discovery Short Treks #4 Review: “The Escape Artist”

There are only two weeks until season 2 of “Star Trek: Discovery” commences, but in the meantime we’ve got our favorite of the four “Short Trek” films to discuss. Rainn Wilson returns as Harry Mudd(s)! We learn why rich people wear caps, that the path to a Tellarite’s heart is through its tusks, and that you should always remember where you parked.

Star Trek: Discovery Short Treks #3 Review: “The Brightest Star”

Scott and Jason return to discuss the third “Short Trek” preceding the return of “Star Trek: Discovery,” in which we learn Saru’s origin and why Kelpiens are not commonly seen in Starfleet. Along the way we discuss hovering murder cylinders, food courts and gazebos, and the recently released final trailer for season two.

Star Trek: Discovery Short Treks #2 Review: “Calypso”

Is it Taco Tuesday yet? Scott and Jason return to discuss CBS’s plan for endless “Star Trek” and the latest “Short Trek”, a delightful retelling of a part of “The Odyssey”—or is it “Wall-E”?—with an injured spaceman and a lonely artificial intelligence who really loves old movies.

Star Trek: Discovery Short Treks #1 Review: “Runaway”

The Vulcan Hello podcast returns with a dissection of the first of four “short films”—didn’t we used to call these Webisodes?—running up to second season of “Star Trek: Discovery.” In “Runaway,” Tilly—we love Tilly!—discovers a mysterious and dangerous stowaway alien monster that might actually just be a grumpy teenager. Also we share our reactions to the new season 2 “Discovery” trailer, featuring hunky Spock! Deal with it, people.

Star Trek: Discovery S1E15 Review: “Will You Take My Hand”

So we reach the end! We say a Vulcan Goodbye to this first season of “Star Trek: Discovery” with a look at a shocking final scene, a rushed ending, a surprising conversion by Admiral Cornwell, some abrupt goodbyes, and Tilly’s “just say no” moment.

Scott McNulty with Joe Rosensteel and Jason Snell


Star Trek: Discovery S1E14 Review: “The War Without, The War Within”

The penultimate episode has arrived, and with it, we discover the fall-out — tactically and emotionally — of the Discovery’s return to the Klingon-Federation War. Ash Tyler grapples with his security wristband and identity crisis! Tilly shows her human decency! Sarek and the Emperor are the universe’s weirdest mom and dad! And Admiral Cornwell returns to assert her authority with a few choices that we have serious questions about.

Scott McNulty with Erika Ensign and Jason Snell


Star Trek: Discovery S1E13 Review: “What’s Past is Prologue”

This week wave goodbye to the mirror universe and… certain… characters… as we ride a mycelial shockwave back to somewhere near our point of origin. Joining Scott and Jason on the ride this time are two representatives of Scotland. We discuss why Burnham is great, what the motivations of Georgiou are, and parallels between “Game of Thrones” and “Discovery.” Two more episodes to go!

Scott McNulty with Liz Myles, James Thomson and Jason Snell
