Ep 6 - Star Trek: Therapy (Discovery, Season 4)

Updated: Jun 29, 2022

We discuss the most recent season of Paramount+'s new Star Trek flagship show, Discovery. Though several of us have fond memories of watching Star Trek with our families growing up, this new show doesn't quite reach those same heights. Even if an improvement over the first seasons, the show still struggles with balancing all of its characters and seems to lack diversity of thought among its crew. Especially aggravating to all of us was the frequent need for every major character (including the ship's new A.I.!) to have a therapy session in the middle of a tense situation. Though perhaps timely given our societal trauma because of COVID-19, it does stand out as a weakness of this season.

Ultimately, we all enjoyed it well enough, but wished it was better.

Karl made me think and so did everyone else, about a poetry book I created and how it connects with moon and space. My interpretation of sky being a roof over our head and life on other planets, amazing. I watched Star Trek when Captain Kirk and Mr Spock was navigating around the final frontier. Yeah watched a lot of Star Trek but not every program or movie. Great stuff.
