“Kobayashi Maru” is an explosive start to Discovery‘s fourth season, raising questions for which Bri and Ken have no answers but plenty of theories. Will the Federation, still recovering from the Burn, now face an intergalactic threat? Is the Federation’s president evil, or just a politician? Where have cadets been going for the last 150 years, if not Starfleet Academy? And how will Burnham, who for the first time in the series’ history is finally content, weather the coming storm? All this and more in our latest podcast!
