Prepare to have your destiny as a listener reshaped by paternalistic influences! We have on a wonderful guest, David Kyle Johnson of the Great Courses series to talk about the Season 1 Finale of The Orville (available on Hulu) and the ethics of the prime directive, a classic of the Star Trek Universe. Also, does anyone get a Brigadoon vibe from the planet in this episode? Didn't get to bring that up in the show, so easter egg for folks who actually read these.

Next Week's Material: We're doing Dune finally!!!! I waited 15 whole episodes before subjecting Thomas to the David Lynch version. But now it's here! There's so much to cover it's almost certainly gonna be a two parter, so strap in.
