Plus: Lower Decks Review: “Grounded” (Season 3 Premiere!) 


In this week’s episode of Positively Trek, the show bids farewell to host Bruce Gibson. For over 200 episodes, Bruce has been an integral part of the show, but the time has come to move on to bigger things!


Dan and Bruce also cover the week’s Trek news, including some unfortunate news for the upcoming Star Trek film, some hints about Tasha Yar from STLV, Nichelle Nichols taking one last trip to space, and looking ahead to the Star Trek Day livestream on September 8th.


We also share our thoughts on the season three premiere of Star Trek: Lower Decks: “Grounded.”
