It’s season finale time on Star Trek: Discovery! Burnham and her crew must establish contact with Species 10-C to prevent the destruction of Earth, while Tarka continues his attempt to destroy the DMA once and for all. Meanwhile, on Star Trek: Picard, the crew travels back in time to 2024 to locate the mysterious “Watcher,” while Agnes and Jean-Luc attempt to bring the Borg Queen back online.


In this week’s Positively Trek, hosts Bruce and Dan discuss both of these episodes, as well as the surprising news of Paul Wesley’s casting as Captain James T. Kirk in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds!
