New Old Eden
With apologies for Kevin's audio quality (he didn't know his mic had issues), we hope you'll find the content worth sticking around for as we continue our discussion of religion in Star Trek: Discovery! This time, we're exploring the second episode of Season 2, "New Eden" and how it connects to the way religion has been presented in Star Trek to this point. Of course, we'll also dive into Star Trek: Lower Decks, Season 1, Episode 7, "Much Ado About Boimler," along with an audience question about the book of Revelation and how you can be the captain of your own starship!

Discovery and Religion
Tim is back!! And in this episode, we'll talk about our Star Trek Day experiences, as well as some Captain Proton news. We'll then discuss the sixth Lower Decks episode, "Terminal Provocations," before we get into our main story, beginning a discussion of how religion is presented and discussed in Star Trek: Discovery. In particular, we'll look at Michael Burnham's dedication to pure naturalism in light of Vulcan mysticism.
