Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow With The Finale Of Star Trek Discovery

The second season of ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ has come to a close, and any arguments that the show doesn’t line up with established canon are now irrelevant, for better or worse.  The characters we have come to know and love have departed to make their own canon, but not without leaving a backdoor to continue exploring […]
