You all kept asking so we have delivered. Every Friday night at 21:00 UTC during Season 2 of Star Trek Discovery we will host a Friday night livestream chat to share our reaction to the episode, speculate what is happening all whilst indulging in Star Trek themed cocktails!
To make it a bit different from all the rest we're trying to keep it around 30 - 45 mins long and to include the following segments:
=^= Trek themed Cocktails =^= Trek-Bounding ideas (normal attire trekified) =^= What The Spock!? =^= Who's Meme is that anyway? =^=Disco Star of the week.
Our first livestream was a lot of fun as we discussed Angels, red signals and how to make Jippers (minus a beach). We currently stream to Facebook Live but hoping to stream to our Continue Reading ››
We discuss the 'Picard announcement' and what we hope to see with a disclaimer that WE TOTALLY WON'T LAWYER UP IF THIS HAPPENS!
We talk about Season two of Star Trek Discovery and our Trek Goals - what we are doing to survive from one Star Trek Convention to the next.

Whilst we are a bit late posting it (seriously this is why we don't podcast!) we were quick to meet up and discuss our thoughts on the first two episodes of Star Trek Discovery.
In short, we were blown away! The characters, the visuals, the story, the very concept that STAR TREK IS BACK!! There was too much to talk about in the brief time we had, but here's our initial thoughts.

After listening to LeVar speak for a while he seemed to remind us more and more of Geordi La Forge. He has that same calming sensitivity, intellect and optimism. So Sam decided to ask him he felt he had the closest personality to his character out of all the TNG cast. LeVar agreed although also felt Patrick Stewart was close with Picard and quipped "Patrick could be grumpy … Continue Reading ››
