With “Those Old Scientists” now arriving today, July 22, the schedule for the rest of “Strange New Worlds” season 2 now looks like this:
- Thursday, July 27 – Episode 208
- Thursday, August 3 – Episode 209
- Thursday, August 10 – Episode 210 (Season Finale)
So if you’re a perfectly normal and functioning “Trek” fan who builds their week around when they can watch the latest episode as soon as possible, please take note.
“Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” has consistently proven itself to be the best “Star Trek,” well, the best “Star Trek” anything in literally decades, and “Those Old Scientists” finds it walking yet another tricky tightrope. Blending animation and live-action, and bringing animated characters into the “real” world, could’ve been a disaster. But director Jonathan Frakes (himself a seasoned “Trek” veteran both behind and in front of the camera) and writers Kathryn Lyn & Bill Wolkoff somehow combine both shows without missing a beat, with Jack Quaid and Tawny Newsome bringing their “Lower Decks” characters to brilliant life non-animated life. Did you think I was joking when I called this episode more important than Barbenheimer this weekend? Nah. Let’s feast, fellow Trekkies.
