Star Trek has a history of tackling questions of scientific ethics. This is familiar territory for Discovery's lead director, Vincenzo Natali, who created the 2009 film, Splice. In the film, two scientists, played by Sarah Polley and Adrien Brody, create a human/animal hybrid, and things get out of hand very quickly.

In this episode of Stage Nine, Mike and John take a look at Natali's movie. We discuss what worked for us and what didn't, Natali's strong visual style, and the challenges of creating a sci-fi world.
