Episode 36: Self, Service, Leadership

Rewind 15 seconds
Fast Forward 15 seconds

Recorded on Sunday, Dec. 12, 2021, Trek Table Episode #36 dives deep into Star Trek Discovery Season 4, Ep 4, "All is Possible".  Hosts Claudia Alick, Maya Chinchilla, Alison De La Cruz, Maia Mills-Low and Marie-Reine Velez assemble to discuss what DeLa considers "one of the best Star Trek Discovery episodes in the entire series!"   Major themes explored in this episode:

* Self:  How Book, Tilly and Adira are coming into themselves
* Service: As Tilly comes to terms with new opportunities, Burnham and Saru dabble in politics, and Culber honors his duality as Medical Officer and Ship's Counselor
* Leadership:  We unpack the complexity of the Federation & Ni'Var negotiations and talk about leadership and building effective teams in a time of pandemic isolation - I mean, during a cadet training mission for the newly reopened Star Fleet Academy!


Trek Table is a livestream ritual holding Trek Space for Black, Indigenous, Brown, Women of Color (Queer or otherwise) and our Allies.  We welcome Trek heads, newbies, generational Star Trek families, the sci-fi curious, and all the evolving identities surrounding Trekdom to explore, celebrate, and dive deep into Star Trek Discovery. 

Join us for the weekly live show on Sundays at 4pm Pacific Time on Outside In Theatre's You Tube channel:
