82: The Carl Dispatch

[DSC309] This week LTAT goes back in time to early 2021, when a younger, more innocent and even more unpolished pair of podcasters called jaQ` Darino & Earl Grey, recorded their review of Star Trek Discovery, season three, episode nine, Terra Firma, Part One. We delve into alternate history and parallel worlds, stumble through the Georgiou/Burnham bookend hikes, gloss over a tripping Worf and find their way to some works of art by Star Trek fans and Star Trek legends.

Here are a couple of things to which we promise we’d link you during this episode:

George Takei has captured hearts and minds worldwide with his magnetic performances, sharp wit, and outspoken commitment to equal rights. But long before he braved new frontiers in Star Trek, he woke up as a four-year-old boy to find his own birth country at war with his father’s — and their entire family forced from their home into an uncertain future. The graphic novel “They Called Us Enemy” is Takei’s firsthand account of those years behind barbed wire, the terrors and small joys of childhood in the shadow of legalized racism, his mother’s hard choices, his father’s tested faith in democracy, and the way those experiences planted the seeds for his astonishing future.

DeviantArt user Karracaz has a plethora of photo manipulations and pure art, but we like this one of Sarek especially: https://www.deviantart.com/karracaz/art/Armed-and-Dangerous-200909754 Also, Karracaz’ gallery is pretty great; we recommend checking it out: https://www.deviantart.com/karracaz/gallery
