Discovery is not only breaking ground on a new vision of Star Trek, it’s also exploring new Star Trek science, and we talk to a few scientists about whether it’s doing that well or poorly.
In “Context is for Kings”, Michael Burnham gets out of jail, uncovers mystery on the Discovery, and outruns a space monster on a derelict ship of horrors.
In the previous episode of CBS’s Discovery, the USS Shenzhou paused unknowingly on the brink of disaster, and Star Trek: Discovery just ran with it, leading us into the heart of the beginning of the Federation/Klingon conflict and a conflict within Michael Burnham herself.
In “If the Stars Should Appear”, the Orville tackles faith, control, and truth in a surprisingly effective and sensitive way with help from a guest star.

Last year, we had the opportunity to attend a few of the Comics and Popular Arts Conference panels at DragonCon, and talk with Johnathan Flowers, Ph.D Candidate, about comics, games and fandom, regarding how they stack up with respect to representation, diversity, and myth-building. We continue our chat this year.
Unimatrix 47 opens with a discussion of the first two episodes of Fox’s The Orville.
