As requested by our Twitter followers, we’re talking “Journey to Babel”. Along the way:
- We provide a recap for viewers who haven’t watched “Journey” lately/ever
- Liz attempts to say “pacificism”
- Live headcanon construction
- Considering “Journey to Babel” in the context of Discovery
- Does Amanda buy into the Vulcan patriarchy?
- Tellarites and Andorians and Vulcans, oh my!
- Costume chat: Amanda wears the pants in this family (and the high heels and feather boas)
And finally, we have a NSFW digression about, ummmmmmmmmmm, some infamous 1970s cosplay. And here are some links:
- The Tumblr post where Liz first encountered the story
- A Fanlore post with more detail
- Turns out this took place in the ‘80s, not the ‘70s as Liz claimed, either way it was definitely a time before conventions had codes of conduct as a matter of course
- These two links are extremely NSFW
