Discovery Debrief: Episode 2 - Space Monsters and Mutineers

Discovery Debrief returns with its panel — Chris Clow (Movies.com, Comics on Consoles, GeekPulse Radio), Rachael Clow (Biology PhD candidate), Cicero Holmes (Spawn On Me Cast), and me! — to talk the latest news surrounding the current iteration of the Star Trek franchise, and then dive in deep to the events of the series' third episode: "Context is for Kings."

With former Commander Michael Burnham finding herself on a brand new starship — albeit with some decidedly familiar faces — she's thrust into a mysterious plot that places her inside an adrift haunted house in space that has more in common with the likes of the original two Alien films and John Carpenter's The Thing than it does anything else in the Trek franchise. The panel also discusses the enigma that is Discovery's commanding officer, Gabriel Lorca, the positioning of longer-term characters, and some speculation surrounding a clandestine intelligence organization we've seen before in the Star Trek universe.
