172. Being Inner Lit (Discovery 5.08)

Liz has done it AGAIN: she forgot to move her microphone. She’s audible but a little echoey for the first 10 minutes, before she has a horrible realisation. 

Anika and Liz are spending their vacation AT THE LIBRARY, where they are checking out some books and checking in on Michael Burnham.

  • Every single thing in this episode is Sarek’s fault
  • Libraries and archives are never apolitical
  • Primarch Ruhn heard there were drag queens doing storytime at the Eternal Archive, and he is NOT happy about it
  • Anika has been linking Labyrinth and Alice in Wonderland for YEARS
  • An alarming amount of people don’t believe in atonement or redemption
  • Michael’s riddle is, do you understand the point of Star Trek: Discovery?
  • Is the Federation bigoted against slime people?
  • “What I’m about to say is going to make it sound like I ship Vance and Rayner, and I want you to know that I do.”
