Rewind 15 seconds
Fast Forward 15 seconds

Star Trek Discovery Season 4 Episode 11 "Rosetta" is the most feminine, queer, and touchy-feely episode yet... and we're here for it!   Trek Table hosts Alison De La Cruz, Claudia Alick, and Maia Mills Low are joined by guests, Jadie Jang and Latisha Jones. Together, they celebrate the various duets this episode, including  Burnham/Rillak, Adira/Reno,  Adira/Detmer,  Book/Tarka,  T'rina/ N'Doye, Saru/T-rina and others.  They also discuss the unifying story of found family throughout the series, testify that land and space hold memory and emotion, and recognize the importance of context and cultural competency in dealing with the biggest threat to the universe.



Trek Table is a talkshow 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.
