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.

As we bid adieu to the first season of Star Trek Discovery, the Recap FREQcast has something special for our dedicated (and long-suffering) audience: a bonus rant from game industry pro and Star Trek fan, Emily Taylor! Emily has an advanced academic background in plant pathology, and if you were wondering "Is Star Trek getting its mycelium science right?" -- Emily is here to confirm that they are very much not. Tune in to this fascinating exploration of ST's "sciencey-wiency" language and a mind-blowing reveal about the character of Paul Stamets.
Emily has a Bachelor of Science and a Masters of Science in Plant Pathology (i.e. plant diseases, specializing in mycology), although these days she works in the computer game industry. She can be found on twitter posting lots of cat and food photos @pentapod.
