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 […]
Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQCast on 01.05: Choose Your Pain
It’s our latest episode of the Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQcast, and Anita has high praise: “I didn’t hate it as much as I hated the first couple of episodes!” Ebony is put in the baffling position of being more upbeat about the show’s progress than Anita. The two share their thoughts on the presentation of […]
Star Trek: Discovery Recap FREQCast on 01.04: The Butcher’s Knife…
This week’s episode of Star Trek: Discovery has a mouthful of a title (“The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry”) and Anita and Ebony have several mouthfuls of things to say about it. The two are cautiously optimistic about the development of Discovery’s depiction of the Klingons, as well as our introduction to Ripper […]
Star Trek: Discovery Recap FREQCast on 01.03: Context Is for Kings
This week, the mysterious starship Discovery makes its debut on Star Trek: Discovery, along with Jason Isaacs (best known as Lucius Malfoy from the Harry Potter films) as Captain Gabriel Lorca, a figure who appears determined to win the war with the Klingons at any cost, and with no regard for any ethical concerns. It’s somewhat […]
Introducing Our Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQCast
Last night, Star Trek Discovery premiered on CBS before immediately engaging a cloaking device, vanishing from the airwaves, and releasing episode two on the network’s new online service, for which viewers must have a paid subscription. Our intrepid explorers Anita and Ebony, both long-time fans of Star Trek, made the journey. But was it worth it? […]
