Plus: Picard Review: “Penance” (2.02)


The double-Trek weeks continue! This week on the Positively Trek podcast, hosts Dan and Bruce talk about Discovery’s mission to establish peaceful contact with “Species Ten-C.” Tarka, however, has all manner of wrenches to throw into that plan!

Meanwhile, on Star Trek: Picard, Jean-Luc and his gang grapple with the circumstances they find in the twisted new reality they inhabit. We talk about “Penance” and give our thoughts on the season thus far.


In the news segment, we discuss the new Star Trek: Strange New Worlds teaser trailer as well as the recent news that Star Trek: Picard’s third season has wrapped production.
