PoliTreks #029: Engaging with STAR TREK: PICARD – Maps and Legends











In this episode Shashank dives right into a discussion/review/analysis/gleeful screaming of “Maps and Legends”, episode 2 of Star Trek: Picard. Joining him to share the excitement and to keep him in line is the delightful Aly Martinez!

Shashank and Aly, his Who Is Trek co-host, elaborate on the episode’s deeper themes and metaphors. Secret societies and espionage from our history, the usage of derogatory language like “plastic people”, the evolution of Starfleet and the depressing lack of Number One and more are on the table. #justiceforNumberOne #brownRomulans
