Revisiting Star Trek Nemesis: 50th Episode Special

4/11/2019
More
In honor of their 50th episode, Chris, Kate, and Tyler spend some time with the final movie in the prime Star Trek series, the last in the timeline: Star Trek Nemesis. They revisit it for its lasting themes, both good and bad, for what it says about the franchise, for its major flaws as much as its lasting impact. For all its significant deficits, we ponder Star Trek as a whole and still find nuggest of truth to be found.

More
Chris and Tyler go Kate-less this week and decide to change up the format a bit, hoping for some deeper discussion (that will only be better when she gets back!). We lament the Search for Spock, the lack of gravitas behind Culber's return, and the potential of so many better ways of doing things, all while loving Tilly and May, Pike and Georgiou, and what might come with more Section 31.
