Excited about a new Star Trek series appearing on the horizon after 12 long years? So were wildly dissimilar Star Trek fans Anita Sarkeesian and Ebony Aster, until they actually sat down and watched the show. Listen to them crack wise every Monday about new episodes of Star Trek Discovery, the latest entry in the long-running franchise. The hosts dissect everything from Vulcan hair decrees to Tribble stunt casting, and try to come up with a compelling reason why the Klingons can’t stay the same from one series to the next. Week by week, Anita will try to sneak in an attempt to convince Ebony to reassess her ranking of Voyager as the 4th most interesting Star Trek property, while Ebony gets distracted by Discovery’s many shiny surfaces.
