Tilly and Po are runaways in the debut of Short Treks! This episode features the Discovery‘s ensign encountering a teenage alien from the planet Xahea. They meet, bond, and part as efficiently as the 15-minute episode will allow. Transporter Lock co-host Sabriel warmed up to the story after a second viewing, while it left Ken cold. Was this episode a bridge to season 2, or a prequel to season 1? Will we see more Xaheans in the future? And what does it mean to recrystalize dilithium? Find out in this week’s podcast!
