67. The Last Dilithiumbender (Discovery 3.11)

“The outside is a myth” is a big 2020 mood

Liz is joined again by Fran as we investigate the cause of the Burn.

  • Another haunted house, another recurrence of the season’s theme of confronting fear and ugly truths
  • Su’Kal: the most 2020 hero
  • The cause of the Burn: a child the Federation failed to rescue
  • In fact, the Federation destroyed itself through its own complacency
  • This is a story which prioritises emotional intelligence over logic
  • Do we need to report Book to the Space RSPCA?
  • Osyraa’s costume tells a story

It’s the episode where we absolutely refuse to get into the question of whether the food you eat on the holodeck is real!
