Short Treks Ep. 3 – ‘The Brightest Star’ & December News Update

In this month’s episode, we review the Short Treks episode, “The Brightest Star,” the third of four mini-episodes leading up to Season Two of Discovery. Here’s a synopsis:

A story from before Saru became the first Kelpien to join Starfleet. On his home planet of Kaminar, Young Saru lived a simple life with his father and sister. Full of ingenuity and a level of curiosity uncommon among his people, the Kelpien yearns to find out what lies beyond his village, leading him on an unexpected path.

Discovery co-star Doug Jones stars as Saru. Written by Bo Yeon Kim & Erika Lippoldt. Directed by Douglas Aarniokski. The episode stars Doug Jones as Saru and Clayton Scott as a Kelpien villager.

Also, we report on some Star Trek news – and one rumor – that has come out over the last few weeks.

Here’s our December 2018 podcast. Enjoy. #LLAP
