Star Trek: Discovery has premiered, and it’s had a mixed response... including in the io9 newsroom. In this latest livestream, Katharine Trendacosta and Beth Elderkin dive into the two-part premiere of Discovery, its place in the Star Trek universe, and whether it goes boldly enough to justify buying CBS All Access.…
Neil deGrasse Tyson must have binge-watched Game of Thrones because he cannot stop talking about the series on Twitter, including weighing in on the most pertinent scientific question of our time: Do Game of Thrones’ dragons make sense?
