Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQCast Bonus: The Unbearable Wrongness of Mycelium Science
As we bid adieu to the first season of Star Trek Discovery, the Recap FREQcast has something special for our dedicated (and long-suffering) audience: a bonus rant from game industry pro and Star Trek fan Emily Taylor! Emily has an advanced academic background in plant pathology, and if you were wondering, “Is Star Trek getting its […]
Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQCast | S01 EP15: Will You Take My Hand?
Join Anita and Ebony as they bid a fond farewell to Star Trek Discovery on this final episode of the Recap FREQcast (well, until DISCO returns in 2019). Tune in and find out how often Anita was overcome with genuine human emotion by the cheesiest things; why Ebony couldn’t grade Burnham’s hair this week; and hear […]
Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQCast, S01 EP14: The War Without, The War Within
With only one more episode to go after tonight’s emotion-filled warp back into the prime universe, Anita admits that questions about show logic are useless and she should just enjoy the ride. Ebony feels put out by Saru getting booted from the captain’s chair TWICE, and both Anita and Ebony wonder: why is Ash Tyler? Just…why? […]
Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQCast: What’s Past Is Prologue
In this week’s episode, Ebony reveals that a significant portion of her enjoyment of DISCO springs from the knowledge that Anita is somewhere suffering through all the gaping plot holes, ill-conceived mayhem, and occasionally terrible set design. Anita shares some good Stamets dialogue, while Ebony has to admit that she didn’t absolutely love Burnham’s hair this […]
Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQCast on Episode 11: The Wolf Inside
In this episode, our intrepid hosts continue to coast on impulse power through the mirror universe with the crew of Discovery, trying and failing to muster any interest in what’s happening after last week’s uncharacteristic goodness! Ebony expresses her surprise at Burnham’s excellent hair situation given the lack of satin sleep bonnets on ship; Anita finds […]
Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQCast | S01 EP10: Despite Yourself
No one is more surprised than Anita and Ebony when they tune in to the latest episode of Star Trek Discovery and realize to their utter astonishment that they are actually ok with what’s occurring on screen.

Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQCast on Episode 9: Into the Forest I Go
In our last new episode of the Discovery Recap FREQcast before the fall hiatus, we tackle the thorny issues surrounding media representations of PTSD; explore some scientific questions we’re wildly unqualified to address; and wrestle with whether or not we’ll care any more about Stamets after a short break. (Probably not.) In addition to YouTube, the […]
Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQCast on Episode 8: Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum
In this week’s episode, things get truly loopy as Anita poses an almost impossible version of “Would You Rather” for Ebony regarding the Discovery’s crew; Ebony bemoans the lack of quality Saru; and the hosts apologize for making the exact kind of appearance-based critiques around Stamets that they wouldn’t stand for from other media critics. All […]
Star Trek: Discovery Recap FREQCast 6: Episode 7: Oh, of Course. A Time Crystal. Of Course. Sure.
Just when Anita and Ebony thought it was safe to go back in the water, Star Trek: Discovery offers up a truly bonkers time loop episode with few redeeming moments but plenty to unpack. Ebony finds herself in the unfamiliar position of not totally loving Burnham’s hair, and Anita points out that Tyler appears to be […]
Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQCast on 01.06: Lethe
In our latest episode of the Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQcast, Ebony and Anita go back and forth on whether the show is “interesting” (only occasionally); whether anyone cares about getting their nutritional information from a replicator (they don’t); and if Lt. Stamets will ever get blown out of an airlock (he won’t). Anita fails to […]
