Star Trek Discovery and The Orville

Broadcast date: 26 September 2017 Episode: 5

In this episode:

This episode I go trekking through space with you! (See what I did there?) I’m remixing my thoughts on two space faring shows that have just started.

First, Star Trek Discovery, which premiered Sunday with one episode broadcast nationally on CBS TV, and the second episode streamed on CBS All Access—as all subsequent episodes will be. (1:24)

Then I discuss The Orville, which is Seth MacFarlane’s new science-fiction space opera “dramedy” that draws extremely heavily on the Star Trek universe, especially the Next Generation era universe. (18:14)
