Anika and Liz discuss the classic TOS tie-in novel My Enemy, My Ally by Diane Duane, particularly: 

  • Duane's take on Roman culture, and its ties to canon, especially in the wake of Star Trek: Picard
  • Romulan language -- and how the heck do you pronounce "Mnhei’sahe"?
  • Ael: a character we adore beyond reason
  • Liz's elaborate headcanon about Romulan culture and politics in the 24th century
  • Anika's eternal grief at not getting to learn Romulan, when Klingon is on Duolingo
  • Fancasting Ael
  • Liz pitches a loose adaptation for season 2 of Picard
  • The sequels

Is Ael a Mary Sue? Do we care? Is it racist to compare your officer to pizza? These are just some of the important issues we cover!
