Trekathon 758: The Escape Artist (ST)

January 10th, 2019

The last of the first batch of Short Trek. Spoilers ahead.

Harry Mudd cons again. At the moment this is my favourite of the four Short Trek episodes, for three main reasons. Firstly, it helps (for me at least) bridge the gap between the TOS Harry Mudd and the Discovery Season 1 Mudd. Secondly, it required less suspension of disbelief than the other episodes – the only tricky element here was the androids, but those are a clearly enough established bit of lore that it wasn’t an issue for me. And thirdly it was just a lot of fun.

758 down.
