When Pike takes a turn as Captain in Balance of Terror, the alternate ending reveals the inevitability of his fate. But as James T. Kirk arrives early for season 2, more crew shakeups push a remake closer to finale level stakes. Why doesn’t Pike know the boilerplate Starfleet Captain wedding speech? What does the workout shirt for the USS Farragut say? Is James Frain picking up the phone these days? It’s the episode that’s actually two episodes!
Music by Adam Ragusea
The Greatest Generation is now regularly streaming on Twitch.
About the show
The unofficial, irreverent and filthy aftershow for all the new Star Trek television: Discovery, Picard, Lower Decks, Short Treks, Prodigy, Strange New Worlds, and anything else they throw at us. Each Friday after a new episode of Star Trek, Adam and Ben recap, review and roast all the New Trek. Check out our other show, The Greatest Generation, a Star Trek podcast by a couple of guys who are a little bit embarrassed to have a Star Trek podcast!
