BOLDLY GO - A STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS PODCAST is dedicated to the Paramount+ series featuring Captain Pike and the USS Enterprise.
12. Keep Your Flap
A Quality of Mercy. Brandi and Suzanne get together to tackle the final episode of season 1 of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. Does having double the Pike really double the fun in this 'Balance of Terror' redux? Was Yeoman Rand on the Farragut with Captain Kirk? And why does their conversation keep circling back to Nazis? So many questions!! Grab your Monster Maroon and have a listen.
11. Enterprise with a Chimney
This episode is double-stuffed, as Brandi was sick with COVID and had to skip a week. Coverage includes both episodes 8 & 9 of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, "The Elysian Kingdom" and "All Those Who Wander". Expect unconnected movie references, laughter, and tears, from both Suzanne and Brandi. It's a long one, but we think it's worth it, especially just for Brandi's Brain Fog!
10. My Strange New Seska
Illness and internet problems be damned! Brandi and Suzanne cover episode 7 of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, "The Serene Squall". Marvel at Brandi's husky sick voice! Be afraid of getting between Suzanne and her Chakotay! Listen to accidental misgendering of Captain Angel on a few occasions (our apologies)! And don't forget Sybok!
9. This Will Never Be OK
Lift Us Where Suffering Cannot Reach. Brandi and Suzanne are back to talk about this emotionally heavy episode. There's laughing and crying. And some more crying. There's also talk of a pompadour of steel, a Kirk jump/tackle, and be on the look out for a damp Ethan.
Seriously if this episode of SNW didn't make you emotional, do you even have a heart?
8. Relationship Device
Brandi and Suzanne come dangerously close to hijinks as they discuss the fifth episode of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, "Spock Amok". They discuss made-up European monarchy names, the return of the green wrap tunic, and Spock on Spock action with fight music!
7. Black Hole's Gotta Eat
Momento Mori. Brandi and Suzanne discover Gorn Morse Code amongst other things in this discussion about the very heavy and sometimes emotionally draining episode. Thankfully Ortegas had some lighthearted lines peppered throughout to make them giggle. Don't worry, they do go off on plenty of tangents and are visited by an inappropriate 4 year old. So, let's DIVE, DIVE, DIVE!
Fun and smart
Fun, witty, casual, down to earth- I was looking for a female led trek podcast and am glad I found this one! They know a lot about trek but are not stuffy about it. I love their enthusiasm and that they share their honest opinions.
Love the banter between the hosts and the commentary on the episodes and actors. I hope the podcast keeps going!
So happy to have found this podcast. It feels like sitting with friends to just chop up all things Star Trek. Focused on the newest SNW but I love their references to past episodes from all series.
I love their perspective as well as their own uninhibited opinions. Such a fun follow up to any episode. I hope they go as long or longer then the shows themselves. I’ll keep tuning in.
