SNW "Ghosts of Illyria" Review w/ Matthew Kaplowitz

They say good things come in threes, but Strange New Worlds' third episode of its freshman season, "Ghosts of Illyria," seems to be the most polarizing episode among the SNP crew so far.  Joining the team this week to help them break this one down: Matthew Kaplowitz from Trek Untold.

LIGHT! We need more light!! Ghosts of Illyria is an awesome Una-centered episode that pays homage to classic TOS episodes "Naked Time" and "The Naked Now," as well as a couple of classic horror episodes. How does Number One handle this out-of-control pathogen aboard Enterprise while Pike and Spock are stranded on the planet below? Why was this episode so well received by some, but maybe a bit of a miss to others?

Plus, the crew member of the week, the redshirt counter, which spoilers, is still at zero. All that and more on another edition of Strange New Pod.
