The 42cast Episode 44: A Star Trek by Any Other Name

The_Orville

The Orville surprised everyone when it debuted. Advertised as a crass parody of Star Trek, the Orville turned out to be a far more sophisticated show than anyone including the network gave it credit for. In this episode we do a deep dive into the first season of The Orville, discussing the the characters and plots, but also talking about how it fits into the legacy of Trek and whether it and Star Trek: Discovery can coexist.

This week’s Five Minute Controversy asks if Quentin Tarantino should direct Star Trek.

This week Ryan, Jen, and Eric join the cast.
