This episode was so interesting! You all covered a lot of ground, and I’m always impressed by the wealth of knowledge and insight that is brought to the conversation. Kennedy was such an enthusiastic guest! So funny. I’m glad you covered Mara, because it’s too easy for a lot of people to write off TOS Klingons–and yet I also love how you always connect TOS to the other series! Great episode. 😀
