The video of the second session is now available as are reflections videos from me and from Ron. They are, as usual being added to the Star Trek Adventures Actual Play playlist on my channel, as well as on Ron‘s with some appearing on KC‘s.
I will add KC’s below in the comments when it is ready
KC has released several videos since the report for Part A, ranging from a very detailed character creation video through to a scene by scene commentary on the first session.

This time we had a lengthy chat after the session which covers ground like surveying the reaction of the players to the balance of play vs learning, the nature of a certain lineage of games where dice outcomes can be affected by the players, and a little bit about the nature of the fiction play produced. In the future, I am curious to see what sort of discussion we can generate about the actual fiction as fiction, about how decisions were made for characters and the GM in regard to description and decision, and (once there is fuel for it) speculation about the characters.
There will be a ‘what were you thinking’ video for this session, and a separated Table Talk video which can make that discussion easier to find and view. They will be added below, once they are posted to my playlist during the weekend (Dec. 12-14, 2020). Through this process, I have been making a recording of pre-session preparation. It will be released at the end of the episode.
The characters are in the fire now, having leapt bravely from the frying pan. The balance of time use will be shifting toward more play and less talk of rules now, as it is less necessary now, so I am looking forward to this ongoing shift in what we are talking about and what comes as a result of that~
