If you know the Brothers Geek, you know we tell the truth, and this week is no different. We discuss the latest episode of Star Trek: Picard, in which we meet a sect of Romulan warrior nuns who also only tell the truth. And if that isn’t enough, they are also the best hand to hand fighters in the galaxy. The Brothers briefly digress from our One-Shot topic to discuss the new Batman camera test posted online, so it’s allowed.
Trivia is Seven of Nine themed and Patrick wins again
Week three of our Star Trek: Picard One Shots. We meet new friends and reconnect with old ones. The mystery deepens, the Motley Crew is assembled and there is a fight scene! We discuss expectations vs reality, we delve deeply into what Starfleet as a metaphor for humanity really means of us, and we hear Jean Luc Picard give the order to “Engage”. It feels oh so good.
Trivia is Borg drone themed and Patrick wins the day!
We have entered a new year, a new era, a NEXT GENERATION even! We have begun our weekly series of episodes recapping and commenting on season 1 of Star Trek: Picard streaming on CBS All access. Our Trek nostalgia is strong as we dive deep into one of our longest lasting fandoms. We dissect and admire and engage intensely with Patrick Stewart’s return to his most enduring character. As Christopher so affectionately states, we attend the Church of Trek this Sunday morning. Come along, gather with us as a community, to celebrate the hope and humanity of Trek.
