Standard Orbit 269: Star Trek: Enterprise II
The Original Series in Discovery Season 2, Part 2.
This week on Standard Orbit, host Zach Moore is joined by Chris Clow to discuss the second season of Discovery through the lens of The Original Series. A host of Discovery Debrief: A Star Trek Podcast, Chris and his co-hosts have covered Discovery episode-by-episode and now that its second season (and time in the 23rd century) is complete, we look back on what worked and what didn't in regards to its TOS connections.
Should the 23rd century be brought to life as a period piece, or are updated aesthetics necessary for modern audiences? Is In Memory Serves the sequel to The Cage we never knew we needed? How do we feel about Michael Burnham pointing Spock in the direction of becoming friends with Kirk All this and more on this week's Standard Orbit, boldly listen!
