Marvel’s ‘Secret Invasion’ Begins + ‘Star Trek: SNW’ S2 Ep2, Court is Adjourned on The ‘Verse!

The Squad kicks off their coverage of the latest Disney+ Marvel show, Secret Invasion. It’s about time we got some unbridled Fury in this universe! Nick Fury, that is. We discuss the show’s comic origins and the extensive changes to the story by the TV adaptation. We’ve been promised ‘Winter Soldier’ vibes and Skrull-y twists behind every corner, so we’re excited for what’s to come. Stay tuned for our coverage of the whole series as it comes out.

We continue our coverage of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season two with episode two, ‘Ad Astra Per Aspera,’ a return to The Next Generation in many ways as a courtroom drama with direct commentary on contemporary social justice and civil rights issues. We also revisit an old TNG episode, ‘The Outcast;, to assess what’s changed and what’s remained of Star Trek’s progressive-leaning programming. The Star Trek Uni’Verse!ity is in session!
