Positively Trek 143: Lower Decks Review: “Where Pleasant Fountains Lie” (2.07)“Did His Kingdom Come?”

Star Trek: Lower Decks continues to push the envelope with this titillating episode featuring some unexpected and welcome backstory for Chief Engineer Billups! Shakespeare references and Ren Faire types abound in “Where Pleasant Fountains Lie.”

In this episode of the Positively Trek Lower Decks review show, hosts Dan and Bruce give their thoughts on Billups’ culture, the requirements for him to take his position as King, and his meddling mother. We also talk about a familiar-sounding megalomaniacal sentient computer and his attempts to pit Mariner and Boimler against one another. Holy crud, it’s Jeffrey Combs!
