Prior to joining the Star Trek: Discovery writing staff, Ted Sullivan worked on another beloved geek property, Supergirl. In the first season of that series, he co-wrote "For the Girl Who Has Everything" with Derek Simon. The episode is an adaptation of a classic Superman comic by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons entitled "For the Man Who Has Everything."

In this episode of Stage Nine, Mike is joined by his Commentary Track Stars co-host Max to look at how Sullivan translated Moore's comic to the small screen. We discuss the comic and the episode on their own terms, as well as how the adaptation maintains the essence of the source material while modified to work in a different medium. We also ponder what this might tell us about Sullivan's approach to writing Star Trek. In news, we briefly discuss Disco's new cinematographer, Glen Keenan, and Damon Lindelof's upcoming Watchmen TV series.
