"Perpetual Infinity" is the latest Star Trek episode to tackle time travel, and it's full of scenes that tug on the heartstrings and make one scratch their heads. Also, Leland is still alive (our bad) and he's turning into a slow-mo fighting Skynet! We'll talk about what worked this week and what could have worked better.


Also, there's a tiny update on the Picard show and Alex Kurtzman reveals how CBS All Access plans to roll out their slate of upcoming Trek shows. And we've verified that this week's Red Shirt is definitely, definitely dead. (A dirty job but someone's gotta do it!)

So fire up your stolen time crystals, strap into your nanite-injecting dentist's chair and listen now to the new TR3!

Episode 158: So, Wait - *That's* Who the Red Angel Is?!

If there was ever a game of "What Will the New Star Trek Discovery Episode Bring This Week" bingo, you likely won big time if you picked "Saru singing hymnals" and "Time-travelers that can literally zap people back from death."

Star Trek Discovery finally revealed who the Red Angel is and, um, yeah, about that...

This week, we autopsy "The Red Angel" episode with more care than they gave poor Airiam right before her Eugene O'Neill-long funeral. We break down what worked and what could have worked better. Buckle up, guys.


And of course, another Red Shirt bites the dust this week, too -- or, rather, gets an "eye full." (Ah, puns!)

So put on your EVA suits, strap into some 23rd century-looking dentist's chair, and listen now to the newest ep of TR3!
