September 28, 2020
What does it mean to be Kelpien? To be human? to be Starfleet?! Explorations go deeper as Akie and Steph discuss episodes 5 & 6 of Discovery’s second season.
 
We go into the Mycelial network to lose new friends and find old ones; we go to Kaminar to, well, kick butt; AND we go to Section 31 where we must confront our own intentions. What does it mean, after all, to be unified?

With Season 2 underway, the happily ever after is starting to show some signs of stress....
 
The nascent Klingon Empire is have some stability problems, Tilly is still seeing visions of her deceased friend May Ahearn (and that may lead to some ship-wide troubles), Mr. Saru is suffering some deadly growing pains, and Michael’s mom, Amanda, drops by with news about her estranged brother Spock - ever heard of him?!
 
And, oh yeah, there’s still the mysterious Red Angel to deal with...

The adventure begins anew... While still reeling from the Klingon war (peacefully concluded at great cost) giant, inexplicable red “signals” in the cosmos have the entire Federation worried and confused.
 
Is it science? Is it divine design? Is it destiny?!
 
Season two of Star Trek: Discovery starts furiously and doesn’t let up for a moment. Captain Pike said it and we mean to honor it: make some noise.

Star Trek Discovery S1 E15 “Will You Take My Hand”

Star Trek Discovery S1 E15 “Will You Take My Hand”

September 10, 2020
 
All’s well that ends well, right?! Season one comes to a defending climax with the Klingons having control of most of Alpha Quadrant, the DISCO attempting a suicidal mission to find the weaknesses in Qo’Onos, and this could be the end. Will it be well?! Or just: all’s that ends?
 
The good news is, the Kelpian feasting, murder ambitious, machiavellian emperor from the Mirror Universe is in charge of this new assault so — wait. Is that good news?
 
Oh dear. Will you take my hand?
Star Trek Discovery S1 E 13 & 14 “What’s Past is Prologue” & “The War Without, The War Within”

Star Trek Discovery S1 E 13 & 14 “What’s Past is Prologue” & “The War Without, The War Within”

September 7, 2020
In episodes 13 and 14 of Season 1 of Star Trek Discovery, things get complicated; things get *very* complicated...
 
Evil Lorca, who is the only Lorca we ever knew, makes a renewed attempt at his coup of the fascistic Terran Empire. Michael is conflicted about stopping him which will save Evil Georgiou, the Emperor. Ash Tyler is no longer a Klingon sleeper-agent, but he’s not quite human either. There is war in the Mirror Universe, there is war in the “prime” Universe – and everyone is sorta at war with themselves.
 
There is only one episode left in the season: will it end in complete and utter annihilation?! ARGGGGH!

Oh my, oh my, oh my. We’re late for an appointment at the palace!
 
In this episode of Set Phasers, Steph and Akie discuss the insanity of the Mirror Universe, the nameless Emperor of the Terrans is revealed, delicacies are shared — and also: secrets? Or maybe not.
 
Also, there’s a war on, folks and Lt. Stamets is having a heart-to-heart...with Lt. Stamets ?!

Star Trek Discovery S1 E 9 & 10 “Into The Forest I Go” & “Despite Yourself

August 24, 2020
Where to begin? This week Steph and Akie discuss Star Trek: Discovery's eighth and ninth episodes in which there is some glorious Klingon battling, some disturbing (and progressive) loss of control of mental faculty, not a little bit of dire intrigue, and a great deal of everything else being turned completely inside out and all hell breaking loose!!! *PANTS*
 
In short: it doesn't matter where we begin – we shall end up somewhere completely unexpected!

Star Trek Discovery S1 E 7 & 8 “Magic To Make The Sanest Man Go Mad” & “Si Vis Pacem, Vis Para Bellum”

August 17, 2020

Strap in tight and hold on to your butts!

In episodes 7 & 8 of Star Trek: Discovery we are forced to contend with the consequences of serial time loops, the curious biology of Space Whales, sentient planets and the perverse nature of perpetual fear.

It is, indeed, “magic to make the sanest man go mad.” and in the end, no matter how lofty our goals, we’ll all end up in the Mudd.

Star Trek Discovery S1 E 5 & 6 - “Choose Your Pain” & “Lethe”

August 10, 2020

Stage a prison-break on a Klingon warship? And inject your head-scientist with the 23rd century equivalent of psychedelic (quantum) mushrooms? AND engage in dangerous liaisons with superior officers?! AND do a Vulcan mind-meld across time and space?! AND FALL IN LOVE?!?!?!  

 
In episodes 5 & 6 of season one of Star Trek: Discovery the crew of the USS Discovery does it all – proving they have what it takes to stay alive in the 23rd century!
 
Also, Akie really wants one of those sweet DISCO shirts...

Akie and Steph discuss Season 1, Episode 4 of Star Trek: Discovery. 

 

Discovery's  fancy new "displacement spore drive" doesn't seem to be working and a nearby mining colony is under attack. AND they only have six hours to get there!! AND Captain Lorca is not all that understanding when it comes to failure!!!

 
Also, when Klingons fall in love over dilithium processors, we all get hot and bothered...
