We discuss Discovery‘s “Project Daedalus”, including…

  • Airiam’s history and fate
  • the Short Trek “Calypso”
  • artificial intelligence in Star Trek and real life
  • (this is why Dr Soong couldn’t get funding)
  • Anika will make you sympathise with Control
  • RIP Admiral Patar, we hardly knew ye or your alleged extremism
  • Admiral Cornwell, queen of our extremely biased hearts

Other media we found a way to make relevant: 

  • Solo: A Star Wars Story
  • Droids in Star Wars generally, with particular attention to the Clone Wars arc “Downfall of a Droid”/”Duel of the Droids”
