Once I realized that this had nothing to do with The Way To Eden from TOS, I was able to relax and watch this episode objectively! Here's my review.

And check out Qstorm & Big Sexy on Midnight's Edge After Dark discussing Star Trek Discovery with Tom Connors, Robb Gallo & MechaRandom! NOT FOR THE EASILY OFFENDED TREKKIE!!

The U.S.S Internet NCC-1958 made a wrong turn and ended up in the Badlands (you're relieved of duty, Big Sexy! Craig, take the helm!) Actually, I dropped those two off at an uncharted planet, but made it back to the Alpha quadrant SOLO with the help of the AFRONERD RADIO SHOW on Blogtalk Radio with DBurt the Afronerd, Captain (Jay) Kirk, aka Cap, and the uncanny Daryll B. who has appeared on our show!  Well, actually, Craig and Big Sexy got dropped off I called in to their Midweek In Review show which airs every Wed. from 7:00 to 9:00, to chime in one of their topics: the cancellation of Star Trek 4! Which led to speculation that the new Picard series might be set in the Kelvin universe (although producers say otherwise), and the piece de resistance: we battle over STAR WARS vs. STAR TREK! Prepare yourself for a discussion that blows the geek meters OFF the scale!

Check out Afronerd Radio every Wed at 7:00 pm and the Grindhouse episode every Sun at 6:00 pm! http://afronerd.com/

While you check out those archives shows, I guess I'll head back to the Delta quadrant and pick up my crew...just want to make sure the planet hasn't made biomimetic copies of them.

It's Rainn-ing Mudd, Hallelujah! We have our final Star Trek Short Trek and Captain Qstorm is smiling! We discuss THE ESCAPE ARTIST and rank all four Short Treks from best to worst! The mission takes a bizarre turn as we sully our reputations as Trek fans to determine whether or not Harry Mudd appeared in the TOS episode Trouble With Tribbles! Somehow, 80s comedian Sinbad becomes a topic of discussion, and we wind down the away mission with Q providing a healthy dose of Orville haterade! It's a full show, folks!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! Bonus points if anyone knows the corresponding stardate for 2019.

No excuses for tardiness this time, people. This Star Trek Short Trek was released in early December but the holidays fell upon us, the eggnog doth flow, mistakes were made...plus, I've been confined to quarters as a result of my reaction to this latest Short Trek. Yes, Craig J. is in the center seat this episode, as I break down why this latest DSC endeavor eschews the basic tenets of Starfleet and the Federation! Then, we discuss and debate one of many online articles that lists Next Generation characters that should appear on the new Picard series. Finally, we briefly discuss the arrival of Discovery on Blu-ray!
