"A Quality of Mercy" Strange New Worlds S1 Finale Review w/ Rhianna Herd


After an amazing freshman season, Strange New Worlds' first run has come to an end with an explosive finale! Join the SNP crew along with one-half of the Duras Sisters, Rhianna Herd, as they deep dive and review "A Quality of Mercy."

What happens when Captain Pike is visited by the ghost of Balance of Terror’s future? How does Captain Kirk factor into the future events Pike inadvertently sets into motion? Can he make a case for peace with the Romulans? And what about that bombshell cliffhanger at the end of the episode? Strap in and go to warp as the team along with Rhianna answer all these questions and much more.
