“The Hope That Is You Part 2” Leaves A Lot Of Loose Ends

“The Hope That Is You Part 2” wants to be able to tie things up nicely and firmly transition “Discovery” into its new 32nd Century home. In doing so, some loose ends are likely to be forgotten forever, unfortunately, because the characters involved really could have used the signal boost. At some point in time, […]

“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? Discovery has gone up against the Klingon Empire, and an AI bent on destroying all life in the galaxy. An Orion pirate somehow feels a little bit underwhelming. Osyraa’s threat […]

“Et In Arcadia Ego, Part Two” “Star Trek: Picard” Episode 10 Review

Overall it’s been a satisfying season with “Picard.” It’s good to see Patrick Stewart embody the role again and give the character a new life at the same time.

‘Maps And Legends’ Review

‘Maps and Legends’ is still setting the stage for what is to come in ‘Picard.’ We learn a fair amount, and yet not much happens. The episode acts as a guide to where the players stand. It could be a bit depressing, depending on your political views. Finding that Starfleet lacks the same moral compass our governments do is dishearting. If there is anyone can show us the right direction, though, it’s Jean-Luc Picard. We need to get him on his way soon, though
