The next chapter of “Star Trek: the Next Generation” is complete. Elliott Serrano opens a channel to discuss the shift in tone from the iconic series, the new characters that help expand the universe and novelist Michael Chabon’s footprint on the series. Plus, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” gets a second look, “Doctor Sleep” and “Birds of Prey” get a little more notice and why Elliott can’t watch “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”. [EP168]
