It’s Round 2 of Jack and Barm’s animated discussion about cartoons, and this time they’re tackling one of the most puzzling Short Treks yet: The Girl Who Made the Stars! MICHAEL BURNHAM MAKES HER SHORT TREKS DEBUT. It’s the first ever CGI animated Trek, and with it comes all the baggage that carries. The SoCal Mall Boys dish on creepy Toy Story 1-esque CGI characters, annoying “kid-speak”, cool Abyss inspired aliens, how long anatomically modern humans have existed, creation myths, the untapped potential of CGI animation, how awesome Sarek is, and ultimately uncover the “Reverse Goku Situation.” It’s an episode as out of this world as a little Michael Burnham’s bed.
