Main Mission

This week we’re talking about episodes 2 and 3 of Season 1 of “Star Trek: Lower Decks”

First released on August 13, 2020
Written by Chris Kula

Directed by Kim Arndt and Juno Lee

Synopsis (via IMDB): After a high-profile mission, involving Klingon General K’orin goes awry, Boimler is further plagued with self-doubt when Mariner proves herself to be a more naturally talented sci-fi badass than he. Rutherford quits his job in engineering and explores other departments on the U.S.S. Cerritos.

Temporal Edict
First released on August 20, 2020
Written by Dave Ihlenfeld and David Wright

Directed by Bob Suarez

Synopsis (via IMDB): A new work protocol eliminating “buffer time” has the Lower Decks crew running ragged as they try to keep up with their tightened schedules. Ensign Mariner and Commander Ransom’s mutual lack of respect comes to a head during an away mission.

Warp Speed Round Table

This time around…

“A Piece of the Action” may or may not make a good jumping off point for a movie. But, if you could suggest a classic Trek starter to Tarintino, what episode would you suggest to him?

Time to refill the dilithium chamber and try to warp on out of here.
