Ep 129: A Compounding Pharmacy of Shame (Lower Decks Season 1 Recap)

Episode 129

10th August 2021

When a group of young ensigns are stationed together on an extremely marginal starship, they’ll have to build great friendships to get through the hazards of space travel. But when one member of the group has a dark secret, this B-team will have to bring their A-game to stick together. Can you make an absurd show that’s grounded in a TNG reality? We want to get blown into space, but how would it sound? What’s the most important character decision that Season 2 needs to make? It’s the episode with an attitude that’s just a little bit shabby.

About the show

The unofficial, irreverent and filthy aftershow for all the new Star Trek television: Discovery, Picard, Lower Decks, Short Treks, and anything else they throw at us. Each Tuesday after a new episode of Star Trek, Adam and Ben recap and review while making each other laugh. 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!
