Episode 14 – The Animated Series

The Animated Series

Let's talk Spoilers

Not much except the actual episodes. These two are short and sweet and easy to follow.


Let's Talk Episode

In this cartoon filled episode of Star Trek, Andy and Jessica go over both Yesteryear:

  • The time travel doesn't really make sense, but oh well
  • End of life discussions for both kids and adults
  • Spock's advice to his younger self, and what Andy and Jessica would tell themselves as kids
  • Spock's replacement (Thalen) - does he give up too easily?

and The Lorelei Signal:

  • The Enterprise is stupid and the men in this episode are stupid... in Jessica's opinion
  • Redskirts--Uhura's awesome but still has to wait for permission from the men in charge
  • Sexism and woman empowerment in Andy's life

Alright, this is just Andy's way of sneaking more Star Trek into the 52 without having to count it. If you'd like to skip, of course, you can to The Next Generation. But we highly recommend watching these movies!
