A Discovery Home Companion is an unfiltered look at Star Trek: Discovery, a new  Star Trek for a new era of television, set in an older era before Kirk and Spock.  Will it be great, or will it be disappointing? Three close friends will approach the show with open hearts and critical minds. Oh, and it turns out we'll end up yelling at each other sometimes.

Has Lower Decks pulls off the show everyone thought it should be?  What themes is this show pulling off that Trek hasn't dealt with? What can we expect from the next season? What did we hate?  Does a Rick and Morty structure work here? What is going on? Status Repot never ended.

Wade has become what he hates.  The worst kind of Star Trek fan.  Sean is there to put us in his place.  Glen is the same kind of fan he’s been. 

In Status Report, everybody gets along. Kinda.
