PoliTreks #039: Diseases in Star Trek: Part 1

A discussion around the plagues, ills, viruses and diseases in the Star Trek universe

While much of the developed world begins a slow path toward recovery from COVID-19, the disease has taken a toll of near apocalyptic proportions on our co-host Shashank’s homeland of India. With that as our backdrop, he and Barry take a look at the diseases in Star Trek. Some are physical, some mental, some flavor of the week, some that stretch across seasons, but all of them are thought provoking and discussion worthy.
