"Kobayashi Maru" + "Terror Firma" Reviews


For the first time in 22 years, two separate Star Trek series debuted new episodes on the same day.

This week, the crew reviews Star Trek Prodigy's first mid-season finale, "Terror Firma." How did the episode wrap up the first five episode arc? What exactly is a protostar drive, and is the team invested in the series moving forward?

Then, Star Trek Discovery makes its return with season four and a whole lot more dilithium. How did the season premiere stack up against the previous three? How was Captain Burnham in her first outing in the chair? And how big are the stakes this season after an explosive final act?

We answer all those questions and more on episode 55 of A Strange New Pod.
