This week, we offer our two cents on the new Star Trek animated series Lower Decks and the latest Short Treks trailer (what is up with that time jump?!). Then we shrink down to half the size of a comm badge and dive into one of the most entertaining hours of Star Trek ever. Don't believe us? This week's episode just might change your mind.


And another Red Shirt beams on down, with ties to the Nexus, too. Oh, and check out why you need to get at least TWO copies of the new book Stellar Cartography.

So stop laughing at Dr. Bashir and the Chief being a few centimeters shorter than they used to be, and start listening now to the latest episode of TR3!

We also chime in on the new Spock, who looks like he just rolled out of Middle-earth, as well as the new New York Comic-Con trailer for Discovery Season 2. And thanks to Scott braving NYCC, we have a few exclusive interviews with Discovery cast and crew, including showrunner Alex Kurtzman, stars Sonequa Martin-Green and Michelle Yeoh, and producer Heather Kadin. Oh, and another Red Shirt from Discovery gets a eulogy, TR3 style.


So order yourself a quadruple espresso and listen now!
