Deep Space Pride #006: Lower Decks Eps. 5 & 6


Another super sized episode starts with the announcements from Star Trek Day! Though we missed all the panels, we chat about some key takeaways – which includes the exciting LGBTQIA+ Discovery casting news, the new Discovery trailer, and some info about Star Trek Prodigy. When we finally get into Lower Decks, we have a hearty discussion on “Cupid’s Errant Arrow” (say that three times fast) and “Terminal Provocations.” Off topic delves into Netflix’s new show Away, which prompts a deep dive into a LGBTQIA+ main character and East versus West; we round things out by touching on Mulan, Raised By Wolves, The Boys, and Lovecraft Country.

Finally, Mike shares the highlights of his Provincetown vacation, while Johnson talks about his (nonexistent) dating life, his hobbies, and his trip to see his parents. We would love to hear from you!
