Picard S1E5: “Stardust City Rag”

Now the curtain is going up, the entertainer is taking a bow! It’s time for some space ragtime on the popup-ad-infested planet of Freecloud. In the aftermath of this truly remarkable episode of “Star Trek: Picard,” Scott and Jason are here to discuss shocking plot twists, equally shocking moments of gruesome violence, how Rios stuck a feather in his cap (but probably didn’t call it ‘macaroni’), cartoonish French accents, and various bones.

Picard S1E4: “Absolute Candor”

Funny holograms, angry Romulans, a ninja elf swordsman, a Bird of Prey on the loose, and a surprise ending made less surprising by the marketing of the show. It’s all in this week’s “Star Trek: Picard.” Jason and Scott are here to break it all down.

Picard S1E3: “The End is the Beginning”

Engage! Scott and Jason break down episode three of “Star Trek: Picard,” which finally gets Picard out of Earth orbit with a ragtag crew. We learn why Raffi feels Picard let her down, but ol’ J.L. knows she can’t resist some good Romulan Research. Captain Rios talks tough, but between his immaculate logs and fussy holograms, he’s Starfleet through and through. And then there’s Dr. Durati, who would really like you to look at her C.V. and consider her for a position on the crew. Meanwhile, at the Borg Artifact, Hugh makes jokes, there’s an intense game of Triangle Tarot, and we learn a lot of things that we already learned last time. Plus: Why do Vulcans need sunglasses? We break it all down!

Picard S1E2: “Maps and Legends”

From the halls of Starfleet Command to the creepy gray zone of the Borg Artifact, it’s time to reconvene to discuss the latest episode of “Star Trek: Picard” with Scott, Jason, and special guest Brianna Wu. We accumulate more lore about secretive Romulans! We learn a bit more back story about Dahj and Soji! Picard expresses a dislike of Science Fiction and then rides in a taxi! This podcast has gone 5843 days without an assimilation, but the night is still young!

Short Treks #10: “Children of Mars”

The Short Treks pivot from “Star Trek: Discovery” to “Star Trek: Picard” as we get our clearest view yet of the future of Star Trek: Libraries, schools, dour Vulcan headmasters, David Bowie covers, and scary terrorism. “Picard” begins in two weeks and we’re excited!

Short Treks #8-9: The Animated Ones

Two animated “Short Trek” installments arrive, and we liked one more than the other. In “Ephraim and Dot”, a mama tardigrade loses her eggs and fights a cute robot. In “The Girl Who Made the Stars”, young Michael Burnham is afraid of the dark and her dad tells her a story.

Onward to 2020, The Year of Star Trek! We’ll have one more “Short Trek” and then it’s time for “Star Trek: Picard.”

Short Treks #7: “Ask Not”

Same old Scott and Jason, new numbering system. Are we living in a Star Trek golden age, and how long can it last? Vulcan Hello returns to ponder the big questions of TV’s platinum age and also to discuss November’s Short Trek, “Ask Not”, in which a young cadet is gaslit by a Starfleet captain.
