Such Sweet Sorrow Part 2 Part 2 - Star Trek Discovery 02x14 - Disco Night 035

Such Sweet Sorrow Part 2 Part 1 - Star Trek Discovery 02x14 - Disco Night 034

Turns out there was too much juicy goodness in the Star Trek Discovery season finale "Such Sweet Sorrow Part 2" that we needed to break this second part up into two additional parts. Part two will be dropping real shortly, so let the almost obscene number of events that transpire in the first half marinate until then. This episode was written by Michelle Paradise, Jenny Lumet, and Alex Kurtzman with Olatunde Osunsanmi directing. Check out the podcast show page at www.disconightpodcast.com...


Such Sweet Sorrow - Star Trek Discovery 02x13 - Disco Night 033

If last episode was largely a setup for the finale, than this is.. well. This is another setup for the finale. That's not to say it doesn't have some great moments! Burnham has a few poignant goodbyes, we see another Short Trek come into play with the arrival of her Serene Highness Me Hani Ika Hali Ka Po, everyone figures out that future Michael Burnham is sending the red signals, and Pike says goodbye to the crew of the Discovery. This episode was written by Michell Paradise, Jenny Lumet,...


Through the Valley of Shadows - Star Trek Discovery 02x12 - Disco Night 032

There's a weird balance in this week's Star Trek Discovery where there is a lot of stuff happening, but a lot of it not feeling very consequential. Pike gazes into the looking glass and finds a future that elicits a reaction much like Carol Marcus' in Star Trek Into Darkness when Khan killed her father. A time crystal is procured, and all they lack is a suit to install it in, or the energy of a supernova to power it. Leland is nowhere to be found in this episode, but that doesn't mean the...


Perpetual Infinity - Star Trek Discovery 02x11 - Disco Night 031

Sonequa Martin-Green puts on an acting clinic in the latest Star Trek Discovery episode "Perpetual Infinity," all while Michael Burnham is working through some serious mom issues. Alan Van Sprang's Leland kinda recovers from getting stabbed in the eyes last week, and gets to paying the stabbing thing forward to Ash Tyler. Sonja Sohn gets a lot of screen time in this episode as Michael Burnham's mother, and hot damn is she stupendous. Competing for that maternal role is Michelle Yeoh as...


The Red Angel - Star Trek Discovery 02x10 - Disco Night 030

The greatest mystery of season two is finally resolved as we learn whose face hides under that Red Angel mask. We have mixed reactions to this revelation. Michael Burnham repairs relationships with the men in her life, but the unexpected return of a woman into her life is really messing with her head. One woman that doesn't seem like she's going to return to Burnham's life? Airiam cuz they just dumped her out into space. Leland needs an eye exam.


Project Daedalus - Star Trek Discovery 02x09 - Disco Night 029

Even though Discovery went rogue just last week, "Project Daedalus" has them teaming up with a Starfleet admiral to cause a ruckus. This time they're heading over to that troublesome Section 31 to depose the Logic Extremist at the top. As happens from time to time in the Star Trek universe, things don't turn out to be exactly as they seem. Directed by Star Trek veteran Jonathan Frakes, and written by newcomer to the franchise Michelle Paradise. She's written a bunch of episodes of CW's "The...


If Memory Serves - Star Trek Discovery 02x08 - Disco Night 028

Featuring Melissa George as Vina. http://disconightpodcast.com/


Light and Shadows - Star Trek Discovery 02x07 - Disco Night 027

In which Joe and Jason both gradually convince each other that Star Trek Discovery is picking up the unresolved thread of the Temporal Cold War from Star Trek: Enterprise. The Discovery encounters a time rift above Kaminar, so Captain Pike and our man Voq decide to fly into it. This yields mixed results. They don't die, but they are attacked by a Sentinel from 1999's The Matrix. Burnham misses it all because she's home on Vulcan in the middle of some serious family drama, where Amanda has...


The Sound of Thunder - Star Trek Discovery 02x06 - Disco Night 026

Another signal appears, this time over Saru's home planet, Kaminar. Discovery immediately gets caught between the plight of the Kelpiens and the seemingly predatory species, the Ba'ul. But like most things, there's more going on than meets the eye. Hannah Spear returns as Siranna, Javier Botet plays the Baul, and David Benjamin Tomlinson returns as Linus and as a random Kelpien. The Sound of Thunder was directed by Douglas Aarniokoski and written by Bo Yeon Kim and Erika Lipoldt.


Saints of Imperfection - Star Trek Discovery 02x05 - Disco Night 025

Point of Light - Star Trek Discovery 02x03 - Disco Night 023

Directed by Douglas Aarniokoski and written by Bo Yeon Kim and Erika Lippoldt, the third episode of Short Treks has our favorite Kelpien facing the hard reality behind the expression "You can't go home again." But in his case it's literal. The military told him he's not allowed to go there anymore. Featuring Doug Jones as Saru, and introducing Hannah Spear as Siranna and Robert Verlaque as Aradar, who may or may not play a role in the upcoming second season of Star Trek: Discovery. The...


Calypso - Star Trek Short Treks 02 - Disco Night 017
