WE'RE BACK! That's right, no more best of episodes, the crew is back together, live, and we even got our great friend, Lord Blood-Rah to join us! Not only are we celebrating the return of Commander Larry, returning to Planet 8 after getting settled after that terrible home fire, but we're celebrating FIVE YEARS of podcasting together! Who would have thought we'd still have things to talk about? But we do! And the best thing is, we're all very happy to talk about this third and final season of Star Trek: Picard!
To say that we were unimpressed with the previous two seasons would be putting it mildly. In fact, we weren't even sure we would watch the third one, but we heard so many good things about it before it premiered, we decided to give it another chance. And boy, are we glad we did! What an amazing season it was. For long-time Trek fans like us (well, most of us), it was a treasure. Terry Matalas and crew gave us a fitting send off and last great adventure for the Next Generation crew. It was filled with shocks and surprises, laughs and tears. We really couldn't have asked for more.
So we hope you will enjoy this SPOILER-FILLED, freewheeling discussion of Star Trek: Picard, season three.
For our Sensor Sweep, all four of us share what we're doing, reading, and watching right now!

Karen is still working -slowly - through the second season of Space:1999, and has also been watching Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles for the first time.
Larry is still dealing with matters from the house fire his family suffered back in February, but is making time to relax and enjoy things like the Kolchak: Night Stalker graphic novel.
That's it for us. We want to thank you for hanging in there with us. We really appreciate you listening to the show and contacting us on Twitter, Facebook, wherever! And thanks for the support you have given Larry in the last few months. It really has been wonderful.
