With The First Link 2.22: Shades of Grey


It’s the finale of Season 2 of Star Trek the Next Generation – where, during a real life writer’s strike (not the one that just happened but back in ’89) – we’re left with a somewhat anticlimactic finale that is nevertheless a semi-charming flashback of the first two seasons of this legendary series.

We thought plants could get you high but wow, wait until you see the fever dream that Riker has as he beams down to an alien planet with absolutely zero PPE and is stabbed by an alien vine. Ruthie and Matthew reflect on the episode as well as completing the first two seasons of their podcast! Thank you all for being along for this ride across the light years. Season 3 inbound!
