Glenn & Scott are back to discuss Discovery‘s two-part pilot, “The Vulcan Hello” and “Battle at the Binary Stars,” and a bevy of related issues. In the spoiler-free opening section, Scott tells a tale of his misbegotten youth…also they talk about the show. After that, SPOILERS abound as they break down Discovery‘s characters, plot, score, design aesthetic, and the surprising status of its eponymous starship.

Glenn is not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be. The Glenn that you know, they had some second thoughts. Glenn's come back to reclaim some infinitude of silence, the unspeaking of their name. At PTBN they're most often seen walking the web, covering the Star Trek beat, and podcasting about various manifestations of life and popular culture. Find him elsewhere on the Twitter, the Insta and/or the Tumblr. Tamp 'em up solid.
