"Where Pleasant Fountains Lie" Review


Season two of Lower Decks warps right along as the ASNP crew reviews episode seven, "Where Pleasant Fountains Lie."

This week, we found out that Billups is royalty, probably ace, and his mom is a Queen who lives on a ren fair in space. If that doesn't excite you, Jeffrey Combs also made his triumphant return to the Trek Universe. 

What did the team think about how the episode handled Billups's sexuality? Was Jeffrey Combs' return to Star Trek worth the wait? And finally, did Boimler hit a new benchmark in his career? 

We unpack it all on episode 48 of A Strange New Pod.
