In our coverage of "Context is for Kings," Valerie and I talk about finding the Trek in Discovery. We both agree that Discovery has taken up the mantle of asking us tough questions about ourselves, our culture, our society and our institutions; but Valerie points out that we aren't being asked those questions from the point of optimism that has been the hallmark of (most) Trek. So I ask you, what are the pros and cons of this choice? What do we lose, what do we gain? Does Discovery feel Trek enough for you?
I had missed some of the bonus content and am finally getting to your coverage of S1 ep1 Caretaker. I've really enjoyed it. I have seen the first 3 or 4 seasons back when they originally aired but haven't seen any since then. I can't say that Voyager stuck with me, it's my least favorite Trek. So my question for anyone is: What are the 5-10 best episodes of Voyager?
