Discovery season 3 might be Voyager 2.0, but it still only takes them three episodes to get home to Earth. Downside: turns out you can’t go home again.
Anika and Liz discuss:
• the narrative language of Star Trek
• Michael’s year on her own
• Adira: Wesley Crusher but make them non-binary
• Earth’s moral failure in the face of a crisis
• hugging CGI trees
• capslocking about Keyla, or, Discovery has a problematic history with trauma stories and we want them to do better this time
