We kick off the new year and Season Two with episode dirty… uh thirty-one. Who thought we would ever make it this far?
Dave and TJ to way deep into The Last Jedi. Spoiling everything and generally ruining the movie for everyone.
Why do the Porgs kill Mon Mothma? How can Anakin Skywalker be back from the dead? Why does Han Solo feel the need to speak only in Esperanto? We answer these questions and more.
Warp Drives #31: Dirty One
Our final wrap-up episode of Star Trek: Discovery! We go way into spoilery territory with some guesses as to the secret identities of certain characters, as well as the implications of the final episode.
Warp Drives #30: Star Trek Discovery 3
Our continuation of an in-depth look at the first half of the Star Trek: Discovery season. We go into detail about the middle few episodes and do a quick comparison with the other flagship space opera, The Orville.
Warp Drives #29: Star Trek Discovery 2
This episode, we go into the details of Star Trek: Discovery, starting with Episode 1, “The Vulcan Hello” and ending with Episode 3, “Context is for Kings.”
It’s no secret that we love Discovery, we delve into where it exceeds expectations and where it comes up short. Dave makes a unique suggestion for transporter use and we wonder about the wastewater processing on a starship. And if you’re one of those people who think the Orville is more Star Trek than Discovery, we have a few words for you, none of them polite.
Warp Drives #28: Star Trek Discovery 1
This week, we talk to Alasdair Stuart, co-owner of the Escape Artists network of podcasts including Pseudopod, Escape Pod, Cast of Wonders, and Podcastle. Alasdair shares how he ended up as the host of Pseudopod and eventually became the owner of Escape Artists.
We also delve into the state of the short fiction market and how science fiction and fantasy have gone mainstream… but there’s more work to be done to reach our audience. We talk about Star Trek: Discovery and the Orville and how they both approach space exploration from different angles. And finally, we talk cookies!
