A cross-cultural examination of entry-level organizational structure reveals key insights into successful management strategies.

#97 – ‘I, Excretus’ Lower Decks S2E08

The Upper- and Lower-Deckers switch roles and in the process learn that the true enemy of efficiency is a meddlesome organizational consultant. Join your holopod-dwelling hosts as they discuss the use of callbacks for both humor and metacritiques of classic Star Trek tropes, how Mariner and Captain Freeman are alike while retaining differences based on career level and experience, and the magnificent audacity of Boimler’s athletic spread.

#96 – ‘Where Pleasant Fountains Lie’ Lower Decks S2E07

Chief Engineer Billups navigates emotional repairs while Mariner and Boimler babysit a manipulative CPU. Join your divided-on-the-value-of-black-licorice hosts as they discuss the mature manner in which Billups’ seemingly prurient storyline was handled, the increasing beauty of the animation in Lower Decks, and how we might handle an encounter with aggressively sexual space-courtesans.

Boimler gets a taste of leadership while Tendi slugs it out with Mariner and Rutherford. Join your properly-labeled-crystal-loving hosts as they discuss who may be pulling the strings behind the newly-powerful Pakled Planet, the close attention paid to promoting character growth while maintaining consistent characterization, and the Lovecraftian horror evoked by a screaming mollusk.

Captain Freeman finds herself in a bit of diplomatic tribble while Mariner and Boimler learn that the aviary is for the birds. Join your Spirk-loving hosts as they discuss how Lower Decks is taking advantage of its animated format to maximize worldbuilding, the brilliant use of meta-commentary to reflect upon the Trek fandom, and why Mr. Okona is so beautifully outrageous.
