This is a very special 400th episode of Priority One, so things are going to be a little different.
We’re skipping Trek It Out this week to make way for all the other AWESOME content that we have to share. To celebrate our 400th, we spent the day at Cryptic Studios in Los Gatos, California, talking to the development team behind Star Trek Online. We’ve got some great interviews with content designers, artists and producers, including an EXCLUSIVE announcement about new content you’ll be seeing in game soon. We also sat down with GamePrint, the company that lets you 3D print your own ship from Star Trek Online.
But first, we’re tackling the latest episode of Star Trek: Discovery in our On Screen segment. We’ll be exploring life and death in “An Obol for Charon”.
