Episode 297: Su’Kal, There Is a Tide, & That Hope is You pt 2
It’s 2021 and we are back to discuss the final three episodes of Star Trek Discovery Season Three, “Su’Kal”, “There is a Tide” and “That Hope is You Part 2”. The season wraps things up in a nice bow so they can have yet another fresh start when season four comes along. But did the season wrap things up in a satisfying thought provoking way? Well I’m sure that is something you have to decide for yourself but we invite you to listen to hear our thoughts on if the ending was a satisfying one or not. We also have an announcement at the top of the episode. Time to pour yourself a cold glass of Ni’Varian Ale, for your weekly shot of Star Trek!
Episode 296: Star Trek Discovery “Terra Firma, Part 2”
“Terra Firma Part 2” is the tent episode of season three of Star Trek Discovery we finishout out hopefully last episode in the Mirror Universe for the remainder of Star Trek Discovery’s run. We never expected them to go back to the mirror universe this season either. But never say never, right? Georgiou tries to make changes in the Mirror Universe but one person isn’t enough to change the whole tide of the Mirror Universe and Georgiou and Michael end up killing each other. Carl is revealed to be the Guardian of Forever and not a Q even though he gave her a very Q like quest. The Guardian sends Georgiou back to the past of this current time line to star in the Section 31 show that is presumably still happening. Hopefully next episode we will come closer to finding out what caused the burn and what’s up with subspace? Time to pour yourself a cold glass of Ni’Varian Ale, for your weekly shot of Star Trek!
Episode 295: Star Trek Discovery “Terra Firma, Part 1”
“Terra Firma Part 1” is the ninth episode of season three of Star Trek Discovery and unfortunately the 5th episode of this series mostly set in the Mirror Universe. Aaron and David have a love/hate relationship with this episode. This episode was really solid, it gave us some of that great ensemble cast, and “Terra Firma Part 1” is just so much fun. On the other hand it’s a Mirror Universe episode and it takes us away from the overall plot and it’s a two parter so we have next week’s episode also keeping us away from the burning question “What is the Burn” But boy do we love some Emperor Georgou being a badass. Who is Carl, is he a Q or is he just some new alien native to this new planet? It’s time to pour yourself a cold glass of Ni’Varian Ale, for your weekly shot of Star Trek!
“The Sanctuary” is the eighth episode of season three of Star Trek Discovery and unfortunately this episode puts the breaks on what the previous two weeks had been building up to. We are happy to see this episode finally see some of the side characters get something to do. It’s just said it’s not really in service to the overall seasonal arc. (as far as we can tell at this point in the season) Hopefully next episode will get us back on track with the seasonal arc and still help us learn more about our characters on the USS Discovery. It’s time to pour yourself a cold glass of Ni’Varian Ale, for your weekly shot of Star Trek!
