Join Ken Gagne of Gamebits and Sabriel Mastin of Pulse Bomb Ready each week as we review the latest episodes of Star Trek: Discovery! Airing exclusively on CBS All Access and Netflix, Discovery is first new Star Trek television series in over a decade and the seventh series and 31st season of Star Trek — and we've seen them all. We'll be analyzing how the ongoing mission of the USS Discovery fits into Gene Roddenberry's universe and where we hope its enterprising voyages take us next.

Great friends and super fans explore the new show!
Ken and Sabriel bring years of combined fandom to a fun discussion of the brand new Star Trek:Discovery series. I'm enjoying discovering each episode with them as it airs!
Fantastic Knowledge and Perspectives!
A great way to both refresh your brain on what happened in the episode before the next one airs as well as gain new perspectives on the show. Sabriel's massive knowledge base of Star Trek lore and history is invaluable for new and old Trekkies alike.
There are two reasons I like this show. First, it's timely and hits my feed very soon after the episode aired. Also, Ken and Sabriel both bring insight that only two very long-term Trek fans can. The show is quick and sticks to the topic well which I appreciate with all the other shows I listen to. Subscribe!
