Science Fiction: DiMaggio is back, baby! Ben complains that there may be too much Star Trek right now. Ben covers the newest episode of Star Trek Discovery, titled Rosetta. Then Steven and Ben dive into Picard, season 2. Steven demands to do an act by act recap, so that we all have to suffer the way he did. All in all, not terrible, but Steven has a bad feeling about this one. We round out the episode by talking about Batman. Not the one you think though. Ninja Batman.
