Science in TNG, with Dr. Erin MacDonald.
 
Dr Erin Macdonald is an astrophysicist, aerospace engineer, and host of the online series "Dr Erin Explains the Universe." She's also a huge Star Trek fan who was recently announced as a science consultant for the Star Trek franchise.

In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Joe Keegan, Amy Nelson, and Justin Oser are joined by Dr. Erin MacDonald to talk about the science in Star Trek and her work as a scientist, an engineer, a science fiction consultant, and a science communicator. The discussion includes the excitement of being a Star Trek science consultant, our favorite science moments in TNG, which advanced Star Trek technology (replicators, transporters, or warp drives) we're most likely to see within a hundred years, and much more!
