 At this point, I don’t even know why Starfleet even gives Lorca orders. He always disobeys and always succeeds. This episode is a worthy mid-season finale. There’s a lot more hints and clues at what’s really going on with Lorca, Ash Tyler, and L’Reill. And the end of the episode is the best cliffhanger of the season!   Full episode gallery   The episode begins with Lorca disobeying yet another command from a Starfleet admiral. He is ordered to leave Pahvo and get back behind...

Star Trek Discovery Season 1, Episode 7: “Magic to Make The Sanest Man Go Mad” Recap

The best way to describe this episode is: super fun. Also, time loop!   Full episode gallery     “Personal log: Stardate 21-36.8…”   This episode begins with Michael’s voice narrating: “Personal log, Specialist Michael Burnham, stardate 21-36.8… ,” a twist on the classic opening of the original Star Trek series. Poor Michael is having a hard time personally now that she has once again settled into Starfleet professionally. Probably why she needs to keep a personal log,...

Star Trek Discovery, Season 1, Ep. 6: “Lethe” Recap

This week we get to see a little of Michael’s backstory: How did Michael end up in Starfleet? Why does she have so much to prove? Now we know. We also see her mom being nice to her on a whole planet of emotionless and mostly racist Vulcans, which is heartwarming. Michael doesn’t have a lot of nice things happen to her. And Lorca gets way more shady. The episode opens with Ambassador Sarek boarding a ship with his… assistant?… on the planet Vulcan. The assistant asks what they’re doing...

Star Trek Discovery, Season 1, Ep. 5: “Choose Your Pain” Recap

Discovery is settling into a good rhythm with ‘Choose Your Pain.’   A lot of action, as always, but with a little more character development. I noticed it for Saru especially. He’s been hard to read in the previous episodes, but we get to see more behind the mask when he’s under the stress of acting captain. And afterward, as Michael gives him Captain Georgiou’s telescope, they both become almost human. Yes, I know she’s actually human. I meant metaphorically. Recap   Read the bold...

Live Long and Prosper For Another Season, Star Trek: Discovery Renewed by CBS for Season 2

We’re enjoying Star Trek: Discovery, and we have good news for everyone else who is enjoying watching the rebellious outer-space-shenanigans of Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green of The Walking Dead). CBS has just announced today that Star Trek: Discovery has been renewed for a second season. All the networks (including Netflix) were very interested in being home to the newest addition to the Star Trek franchise, so if it was cancelled after one season, that would have been a major...
