Star Trek Discovery | S01 EP08: " Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum"
In this week's episode, things get truly loopy as Anita poses an almost impossible version of "Would You Rather" for Ebony regarding the Discovery's crew; Ebony bemoans the lack of quality Saru; and the hosts apologize for making the exact kind of appearance-based critiques around Stamets that they wouldn't stand for from other media critics.

Ebony finds herself in the unfamiliar position of not totally loving Burnham's hair, and Anita points out that Tyler appears to be on a undeserved career fast track.

In our latest episode of the Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQcast, Ebony and Anita go back and forth on whether the show is “interesting” (only occasionally); whether anyone cares about getting their nutritional information from a replicator (they don’t); and if Lt. Stamets will ever get blown out of an airlock (he won’t). Anita fails to realize that the crew’s DISCO shirts are a reference to the ship and not souvenirs from a holiday on Rigel, and Ebony continues to ponder everyone’s hair....
Star Trek Discovery | S01 EP05: "Choose Your Pain"
In our latest episode of the Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQcast, Ebony is put in the baffling position of being more upbeat about the show's progress than Anita. We chat about our thoughts concerning the presentation of some key crew members, and Anita tries to slip in some Voyager love, all to no avail. Ebony continues to do the vital work of sharing her impressions of the hair of the black women on board the Discovery. Subscribe now!

Burnham’s hair over the course of the season.
