Both the Orville and DISCO wrap up some plot lines while throwing out significant new twists. Plus, we’re treated to fantastic space battles, time on Burnham’s Old Vulcan Home, and one exceptionally angry mother. Strap in, folks, we’re going on a ride.
In S2E6, DISCO takes us to Kaminar in our first (thankfully) Spock-free installment, and in true DISCO fashion, the episode takes our expectations and chucks them straight out of the door. The Orville takes similar expectations and proceeds to laugh while mulching them. It was a wild ride on Thursday.
On Valentine’s Day, both Star Trek: Discovery and the Orville tackled the idea of love. In one, love conquers death; in the other, culture crushes both love and life, making for heavy Valentine’s Day viewing.
In episode 4, Star Trek: Discovery asks us to confront our expectations for death, what they mean for our lives, and one particularly grumpy engineer. There’s a mysterious Sphere! Saru manifests threat ganglia! Spock is…somewhere. I’m here for all of it.
Claire Finn has a date with Isaac which is both as weird and somehow cuter than you expect it to be. We also learn that the Orville’s Bridge is waterproof and Bortus should never have a mustache. On Discovery, we get Klingon intrigue, Section 31, and two unhappy mothers.
We finally catch up with the Orville by tackling “Home” in which we find out if you really can go home again and how to handle disappointed parents, Xelayan-style.
Playing catch up, we’re reviewing season two episode two of the Orville. Bortus and Klyden have a tiff, and the show demonstrates just how far it will sink into potty humor.
The Orville tackles astrology, and Discovery continues to explore science versus religion in last week’s installments of both series. Unimatrix 47 continues to talk Trek.
The Orville and Star Trek: Discovery are back for new seasons, and so is the Unimatrix 47 blog! We’re tackling Discovery’s season premiere and two episodes of The Orville. Come on in for some sci-fi goodness as we blast off for the next season of the Unimatrix 47 blog here on GiN!
Attentat 1942 is a serious video game that explores the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia during World War II from the perspective of civilians who survived it. It’s a heart wrenching affair at times, but perfectly shows how videogames can tell masterful stories.
