Just when we were worried about how long Boimler was going to be away the Cerritos, he's already back! Mike and Johnson chat about the Lower Decks episode "Kayshon, His Eyes Open," which sees our favorite ensigns again tackling disasters that need to be contained in a 25-minute episode. And honestly, is Johnson the only one that agrees with Boimler and wishes that there were more string quartets in Star Trek nowadays?
We then go into a long overdue off topic segment. Mike rattles off a bunch of things he's watching, including Suicide Squad and The Chair, while Johnson is clinging to his Apple TV+ subscription like nobody's business.
We would love to hear from you! You can reach us by emailing [email protected] - drop us a note, comment, or question. Just don't be mean - though if you are, we might ignore you!

060 - The One Where Book Crying Might Be Justified
1:22:23Discovery brings us a new episode where we see a LOT of sidebar conversations happening, but we love all of them! Between Culber-Tilly (twice!), Adira-Tilly, Book-Michael, Book-Stamets, Adira-Gray, Saru-Tilly, there is a LOT of action. And we are so glad that Saru is back!! Other than this week's episode, we also chat about some off topic - including Cowboy Bebop, the Great British Bakeoff, Doctor Who, Foundation, The Morning Show, and The Wheel of Time. And will we ever discuss Coda Book 2!?
059 - The One Where Mike and Johnson Have Too Much To Discuss
1:46:29So much Star Trek to discuss! First, we celebrate the 25-year anniversary of Star Trek: First Contact, arguably the best TNG movie ever! Where were we? What were we doing? And how have we grown since then?? We then move onto discussing TWO Star Trek episodes - Prodigy's "Terror Firma" and Discovery's "Kobayashi Maru." We loved the "mid" mid-season (?) finale of Prodigy, which has Dal finally doing something other than being annoying, and some great moments for our characters. We also loved (shocking) the season premiere of Discovery, though we're not without our qualms (not shocking) - and Mike totally owes Johnson a drink because there WAS crying in this episode!
058 - The One Where Everyone Makes Dumb Decisions
56:47Note from the podcasts hosts: Unfortunately, the audio this week was a bit wonky. We appreciate your understanding and continued support! And we are already nearing the end of Prodigy Season 1!...Kind of. Mike and Johnson talk about the latest episode of the new series, which will be the second-to-last one before we take a two month break. Who is making these decisions!? Anyway, this week we ponder Dal's level of annoyance compared to the previous episode - while a BIT tolerable, other things make this episode a bit vexing... but that's ok! We also chat a bit of Star Trek news - which include an update that affects our Star Trek family internationally, and a brand new shiny pin that Mike has!
057 - The One Where Dal Annoys Everyone
1:15:46After a spectacular season premiere, Star Trek: Prodigy has a more sobering second episode, which finds Johnson expressing some strong and violent opinions about Dal, and the issues that make the character instantly intolerable for him. Mike takes a more measured approach, and gives the character (as well the show) a bit more benefit of the doubt. Either way, we're just reminded that we might not be the target demographic of Prodigy... a 20 episode first season is a good thing, right? In other news, SPOTTED - Wilson Cruz in Hell's Kitchen! XOXO Gossip Girl.
056 - The One With John Noble and a Purple Alien
46:48It's finally here! After months of waiting, we get the series premiere of Star Trek Prodigy - and it's excellent! Mike and Johnson are big fans from the get go - we chat about a show that will hopefully not only herald in a whole new era of Star Trek fans, but keep us old geezers entertained. Join us as we dive into some of our favorites parts of the first episode, and explore some of the mysteries the series has already thrown our way - while Johnson is crossing his fingers that John Noble gets more opportunities to chew the scenery.
055 - The One Where We Ramble On About Lower Decks Season 2 & Prodigy
1:09:19We take a look back at Lower Decks Season 2 - the lows, the highs, and everything in between. We delve into some of our favorite moments, particularly the last three episodes of the season - and what are some of our predictions for Season 3? And yes, Mike revels in the fact that he was indeed correct about the sexual tension between Mariner and Jennifer. Though Lower Decks might be over, that doesn't mean we don't have more Trek to watch! We discuss what we're anticipating for the series premiere of Prodigy, which looks exciting not only for kids, but for old people like us. And as old people tend to do, we ramble on after all of that about everything else we are watching in an impromptu Off Topic segment.
054 - Lower Decks: The One Where the Cerritos Saves the Day
1:37:10What a finale! We've finally arrived at the last episode of Lower Decks Season 2, and boy was it a doozy. Somehow, Mike McMahan and team manage to fit a LOT of storyline into just 30 minutes of TV. Every one of our Lower Decks gets their chance to shine, and almost all the bridge crew members have their moments. And we get our first TNG-style cliffhanger! After talking about the finale, we go into MAJOR spoiler territory and discuss the first book of the Coda Trilogy - Moments Asunder. Skip the last 30 minutes of this episode if you haven't read the book and are planning to!
053 - Lower Decks: The One With the Out of Control Vulcan
56:51We've now reached the penultimate episode of Lower Decks Season 2, which has us following three LD crews for the price of one! Mike and Johnson heap praise on "wej Duj," which puts a unique and experimental spin on the standard formula - while keeping the focus on both character development and progression of the arc that's been brewing all season. We also take a moment to talk about the news coming out of New York Comic-Con - which include the latest Discovery trailer, and some updates from Star Trek: Prodigy.
052 - Lower Decks: The One Where Rutherford Almost Saves the Enterprise
44:58This week, Mike and Johnson shared their unbridled enthusiasm for "I, Excretus," which they both think might be the best Lower Decks episode of the entire season. This episode has us hanging out with both the lower and upper deckers, while they try to put themselves in each others' shoes - and isn't it about time that someone gave Boimler a promotion? We also chat briefly about the first novel in the Star Trek: Coda trilogy, Moments Asunder. Mike thinks that it might be the most exciting line-up of Star Trek novels since Destiny, while Johnson has only started to crack open the first book. At least we won't have to wait long for the finale! We would love to hear from you! You can reach us by emailing [email protected] – drop us a note, comment, or question.

051 - Lower Decks: The One Where Billups Almost Has Sex
1:02:15We're reaching the home stretch when it comes to Season 2 of Lower Decks! This week, we discuss "Where Pleasant Fountains Lie," which unfortunately is an episode title that we had serious problems remembering (even though we were fans of the episode itself). We get a healthy dose of Billups' backstory, while Boimler and Mariner retread some old ground. After the episode discussion, it's time for another stop at Counselor Troi's office! Johnson shares his brush with personal injury (which may or may not have anything to do with signing up for a matchmaker), while Mike is looking forward to adopting a dog with Dennis. And with a puppy now in the mix - how exactly are we going to balance our personal / podcast lives when there are TWO new Star Trek episodes every week come November!? We would love to hear from you!
