Star Trek: Discovery S1E3 Review: "Context is for Kings"

This week Scott is joined by two Scots to discuss Michael Burnham’s arrival on the USS Discovery. Vulcan martial arts! Gorn skeletons! The horrors of creepy alien monsters and perky roommates! This episode has it all… even a zipper and a Tribble.

Star Trek: Discovery S1E2 Review: "Battle at the Binary Stars"

We’re back to discuss the second episode of “Star Trek: Discovery!” Burnham has to deal with her mutinous actions. We get too many Klingons, including a flashback. Ensign Head Wound meets a confused end. Sarek sends a long-distance mental pep talk. And Captain Georgiou meets the fate of all Special Guest Stars. Onward to the dark Starfleet chamber of justice!

Star Trek: Discovery S1E1 Review: "The Vulcan Hello"

Hello, humans! A new Star Trek series has appeared and in this episode we review the one hour premiere of “Star Trek: Discovery.” We discuss the comportment of bridge officers, the “Star Trek: Shenzhou” prequel series we never saw, the appearance of the Star Trek Sound Effects pack, why Vulcans are kind of jerks, and the validity of using small caps in your caption font. And much, much more!

(Note: This episode only contains spoilers for the very first hour of “Star Trek: Discovery.” In fact, we made a point of recording it immediately after viewing. In our next episode we’ll discuss the second hour.)

Young Sexy Harry Mudd

The first footage from the new Star Trek series, “Star Trek: Discovery” has arrived, and our crew of Trek fans has assembled to break down the details from the trailer and gauge their expectations. New Klingons! Mysterious alien objects! The potentially doomed crew of the USS Shenzhou! A holographic Sarek (and a lousy childhood on Vulcan)! A creepy alien who senses that death is near! In true Incomparable style, we talk for an hour about 143 seconds of trailer.

Nostalgia Bomb

This week came the announcement we’ve been waiting for: A new “Star Trek” series is in the works. But with the announcement came a bunch of interesting details (it’s going to be exclusive to CBS’ streaming service, it’s going to be produced by one of the co-writers of the J.J. Abrams “Star Trek” movies) and a lack of specifics (they’re still interviewing writers and didn’t announce even the most basic of premises). Our panel of Star Trek fans analyzes the interesting decisions CBS has made so far, tries to imagine how a “Star Trek” series from 2017 might differ from its predecessors, and discusses the importance of creating a series that can keep the franchise alive by appealing to a new generation of fans.
