Discovering Trek: Short Treks – Children of Mars


Two young students have parents who both work at the Utopia Planetia Shipyards on Mars.  Another thing they have in common is their disdain for one another.  It takes an unthinkable event to bring the two together to face their special connection after their lives are shaken to their very core.

Trek Geeks Dan and Bill discuss the final Short Trek of the season – “Children of Mars” and the connection it has with the upcoming new Star Trek: Picard series.  This uniquely told story speaks volumes with the least amount of dialogue ever heard in a Star Trek episode. Additionally they will discuss all of their likes and dislikes (if any).  Plus some awesome new Episode pins are on the way from FanSets along with a special discount code only for Discovering Trek listeners!
