Join Ken Gagne and Sabriel Mastin each week as we review the latest episodes of Star Trek! From Discovery and Picard to Lower Decks and beyond, we analyze how the ongoing missions into Gene Roddenberry's universe fit into a half-century of Trek history and lore.
Lower Decks S4E07-10
The final four episodes of Lower Decks' fourth season tie up plenty of loose ends.

Lower Decks S4E01-03 & Very Short Treks S1E01-02
The debut of both Lower Decks' fourth season and Very Short Treks' first season marks a very silly era for Star Trek.

Have you met Sabriel?
She's basically the Ravenclaw/Hermione ('T)rek friend you always wanted, Ken is Cedric or O. Wood; suddenly, you're a little more or less lonesome being a Slytherin or Gryffindor, Durmstrang or Beauxbatons student etc.
Excellent recaps and analysis
Ken and Sabriel do an incredible job of dissecting each episode of Star Trek: Discovery shortly after it's aired. You can tell they've done their homework when it comes to Trek history and all the connections the show is putting together because if you didn't catch something, never fear — Ken and Sabriel *did* catch it! Their analysis of the show is well thought out and fun. I listen to a few podcasts that talk about Discovery, but this one is by far the most informative and is my favorite.
There are two reasons I like this show. First, it's timely and hits my feed very soon after the episode aired. Also, Ken and Sabriel both bring insight that only two very long-term Trek fans can. The show is quick and sticks to the topic well which I appreciate with all the other shows I listen to. Subscribe!
