To Boldly Go: Destiny and Fate in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

Throughout the fantastic first season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, one of the major plot threads, if not the biggest thread, is Captain Pike struggling with the foreknowledge of his future death. Brian and Sam discuss this new offering to the Star Trek world and that meaty topic of fate and determinism. Plus we discuss that hair, trusting the path that you’re on, and Sam tries again to pronounce Villeneuve.

For those who are interested, we mentioned our episode on Craig Thompson’s Blankets. You can find it here:
