Chief Archivist Amanda returns to Transporter Lock and brings with her Ensign Modeler Andrew to review the final two episodes of Lower Decks’ second season. Predicted romances didn’t materialize, and we’re relieved and excited by what we got instead. We’re heartened by the return of Sonya Gomez and want to see more returning alumni. We were pleasantly surprised to finally see Cetacean Ops and to be teased by the Rubber Ducky Room. We respond to Susan Arendt’s comment whether the show is better when it isn’t trying to be funny. We love the Buckaroo Banzai sequel. And we can’t help but note that whales outrank Harry Kim. All this and more!
