    Just Keep Circling: SDCC 2022 Wrap-Up w/ Myrriah Gossett

    We're back after a week off with all the news from Star Trek's big Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2022! Our friend Myrriah Gossett from Star Trek Discovery Pod joins Girafe, Hawk, and Julian to break it all down.

    Will Jean-Luc and the cast of TNG visit the Enterprise one more time in Picard's final season? Is there beef between Jean-Luc and Beverly? When Lower Decks returns in four weeks, how will Mariner, Boimler, Rutherford, and Tendi clear Captain Freeman's name? Who will we see when the Cerritos heads to Deep Space Nine? Plus, how will the big Strange New Worlds x Lower Decks crossover work?

    The SNP crew try to answer all those questions and more. Plus, the return of the Strange New Loop, mailbag, and much more on episode 93 of Strange New Pod!

    Balancing the Terror + Matthew MacFadzean Interview

    Balancing the Terror + Matthew MacFadzean Interview

    For the first time in 29 weeks, Strange New Pod doesn't have a new episode of Star Trek to review. Not to worry, though, as Strange New Worlds gave us plenty to deep dive and dissect.

    This week, it's the pod of old as the crew deep dive all the similarities and differences between the Strange New Worlds finale "A Quality of Mercy" and the classic TOS season one episode "Balance of Terror."

    The podcast also had the honor and privilege of sitting down with the Romulan Commander himself, Matthew MacFadzean. The SNP team talked about what it was like to take on such an iconic role, the makeup process, being on set during strictCOVID restrictions, and so much more.

    So grab a bottle of Romulan Ale, engage that cloak, and enjoy episode 92 of Strange New Pod!

    Time Index:

    6:43 - Interview with Matthew MacFadzean

    33:49 - Deep Diving "A Quality of Mercy and "Balance of Terror"
