#89 – ‘The Escape Artist’ & ‘Ephraim and Dot’ Short Treks

Harry Mudd tangles with a terse Tellarite while Ephraim and Dot take the audience on a tour of TOS’s greatest hits! Join your Jipper-loving hosts as they discuss the importance of making room for humor in Star Trek, the clever way that ‘Ephraim and Dot’ combines nostalgic Easter eggs with modern Trek staples, and Dan’s elucidation of Mudd’s 17-step process for escaping captors.

Spoiler warning! We dive right into a detail-rich discussion of this episode, so if you haven’t had a chance to see it yet – beware!

Next week: We go where the It’s Got Star Trek Podcast has never gone before – Season 2 of TNG! Spool up your streaming service, LaserDisc player, or VHS machine with Star Trek: The Next Generation’s ‘Time Squared’ – twice the Picard for the price of one! Don’t worry, our full, weekly coverage of Lower Decks Season 2 starts the following week!

Note that this and all episodes of the It’s Got Star Trek podcast contain explicit language and, frankly, an unnecessary amount of offensive content, so the show is intended only for adults and really really cool kids.
