Episode 155: We Need to Talk About Spock

In the latest TR3, we delve into this week’s episode of Discovery, i.e. the one where Burnham goes home and hangs out in a cemetery crypt while Tyler and Pike fight one of the squids from The Matrix!

Listen, there’s a lot going on in this episode that’s particularly spoilery, so we won’t delve into too much here. Listen to the podcast for all our thoughts! But suffice to say, stuff happens in “Light and Shadows”… even if it doesn’t always happen as gracefully as one might hope.


Oh, and also, we get an emergency transport/self-destruct scenario that’s pretty great!

Beyond that, Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 has gotten a greenlight, so we discuss what that means for the future of the franchise. And, of course, we have a Red Shirt of the Week -- an entire ship of the poor bastards, in fact. So turn on, tune in, and drop out -- into a localized time distortion -- and listen to Transporter Room 3!

Plus, Scott and Phil are split on this one, Siskel & Ebert style, so expect some fireworks. Ish. A short discussion about “Trials and Tribble-ations” also goes down where we decide that no, putting the Discovery team in Original Series costumes and sets would not have made any kind of sense. And we also have a Red Shirt -- 43 of them actually -- from Star Trek: Enterprise!


So shred your threat ganglia, put on your so-not-inconspicuous robes we only wear for spying on primitive species, and listen now!

A surprise character returns! (Well, maybe not so surprising.) A trippy trip to the mycelial network! Section 31 getting all up in there! Tyler needs a haircut! And so much more!


We also have news(ish) about the Picard show and Nickelodeon’s newly announced Trek animated series that no one saw coming. And yes, of course, we’ve got a Red Shirt too.

So set your Section 31 ship’s cloak to “big ass asteroid” and listen now!
