“There Is A Tide…” Of Change Of “Star Trek: Discovery”

“There is a Tide…” brings “Star Trek: Discovery” to the underlying point of the season. There are essentially two factions in the universe.

“The Sanctuary” Fails To Provide Comfort For “Star Trek: Discovery”

“The Sanctuary” finally draws out the big bad for this season of “Star Trek: Discovery,” and I couldn’t help but wonder if that was all?

Star Trek Discovery Honors The Saints Of Imperfection

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ has been a bit of a mixed bag thus far this season.  Maybe it’s because, as a long time fan, I am eager for the introduction of Spock and therefore disappointed when another episode goes by and still no return.  I think it’s a bit more than that, however.  A good plot […]

A Point Of Light Reveals The Dark Places We Find The Discovery Crew In
