Trekabout Episode 271: Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum

forest1

After a couple good episodes, Star Trek: Discovery sadly backslides with “Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum”. The show remembers that it has a metaplot to deal with, so we get yet another grab-bag serialization episode that feels scattershot and broad. Plus! What’s up with the stardates?

tilly-burnham

In “Context Is for Kings”, we meet the USS Discovery, Captain Lorca, Lt. Stamets, and, best of all, Cadet Sylvia Tilly. Nothing else matters. Cadet Sylvia Tilly needs to be retconned into all previous Trek series. Oh yeah, and some other stuff happened about a new way to fly on fungus spores. Wait. What, Star Trek: Discovery?

Trekabout Episode 265: The Vulcan Hello/Battle at the Binary Stars

star-trek-discovery

Well, it’s finally here: the premiere episodes of the first new Star Trek series since 2001, Star Trek: Discovery. “The Vulcan Hello” and “Battle at the Binary Stars” are less a pilot for a new series and more a prologue, as it sets up the events of the series but doesn’t directly deal with our setting or most of our characters. Does it work? Listen and find out!
