Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQcast #13: Such Sweet Sorrow
We’re so close to the end of Star Trek Discovery’s second season, but before we press the self-destruct button on the Recap FREQcast, let’s race through some space corridors and figure out what happened in this week’s episode! Anita is off taking time suit flying lessons, so Ebony was joined in the Keanu Reeves Memorial Studio […]
Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQcast #8: If Memory Serves
In this week’s episode, Ebony is joined again by “slightly delusional Star Trek fangirl” Francine Crockett, aka Spock Jones. Rather than make any more easily-googleable errors about TOS continuity, Ebony decided it was better to bring back an actual Trek expert (a “trek-xpert,” if you will) to break down for us all the ins-and-outs of this […]
Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQcast #7: Light and Shadows
Anita gets a little too excited when her one night stand (Tyler) and her future husband (Pike) are on an away mission together. We finally meet Disco Spock and well…that just sort of happened. There are some weird gender roles happening on Vulcan that we ain’t too happy about. Plus Ebony is not having any of […]
Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQcast #6: Sounds of Thunder
In this weeks episode of the Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQcast, Ebony and Anita are joined in Ten Forward by overly enthusiastic Star Trek fan, Sarah Gulde.

Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQcast #2: “New Eden”
Anita and Ebony are back on bridge duty this week with the Feminist Frequency Star Trek Discovery Recap FREQcast, deciphering narrative arcs, giving hair reports, steering through the highly illogical, and generally questioning what keeps us watching… other than Tilly. In this week’s show, we share our reactions to the second episode of Discovery’s second season, […]
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 […]
