It’s the return of the braidy bunch as the Klingons finally let their hair down on Star Trek: Discovery. (S2E03) Point Of Light Review

*SPOILER* You’d be forgiven for wincing as this week’s episode begins because it brings back those pointy-clothed buzzkills from season one, the Klingons. Although it’s immediately apparent that something’s different. They’re more mobile, for one, and certainly more hirsute. And while they’re still speaking Klingon, it’s less stilted and Shakespearean now but they’re probably just … Continue reading It’s the return of the braidy bunch as the Klingons finally let their hair down on Star Trek: Discovery.

Star Trek Discovery returns having given itself a soft reboot up the backside. Star Trek: Discovery S2E01 Review

*SPOILERS* So although “Star Trek: Discovery” and I didn’t part on the best of terms after Season 1 limped to a close, I have to admit I was looking forward to this new season. That’s due in part to the excellent “Short Treks” but also due to the fact the series had, at least, ditched … Continue reading Star Trek Discovery returns having given itself a soft reboot up the backside.

It’s more final straw than final frontier as Star Trek: Discovery limps to an onanistic season finale. Will You Take My Hand (S1E15) Review

*SPOILERS* I’d be lying if I said I was boldly going in to the season finale. The going has been pretty rough at times and with a series that’s proved itself so inept at delivering payoffs to its (often admittedly impressive) setups, part of me dreaded the thought of what such a series would do … Continue reading It’s more final straw than final frontier as Star Trek: Discovery limps to an onanistic season finale.

What’s past may be prologue but what’s ahead is pure Trekky goodness. Star Trek: Discovery (S1E13) Review

*SPOILERS* By this point, “Star Trek: Discovery” has used more quotes as titles than you could shake a spear at (it’s also batting way above average in getting characters to announce the episode title in dialogue) and after last week’s dip into the Scottish play, this week’s is lifted from “The Tempest”: ‘What’s Past Is … Continue reading What’s past may be prologue but what’s ahead is pure Trekky goodness.

The Wolf Inside (S1E11) continues Star Trek: Discovery’s proud tradition of ‘Tales Of The Expected’. Review

*SPOILERS* Still stranded in the Mirror Universe, Burnham, Lorca and Tyler remain under cover on the ISS Shenzhou while on Discovery, Tilly and Saru deal with Stamets’ deteriorating condition. The episode may be titled “The Wolf Inside” but the latest episode of “Star Trek: Discovery” seems more interested in taking us on a foxtrot. This … Continue reading The Wolf Inside (S1E11) continues Star Trek: Discovery’s proud tradition of ‘Tales Of The Expected’. Review

Sometimes Star Trek: Discovery can’t see the wood for the trees. Into The Forest I Go (S1E09) Review

*SPOILERS* Apologies for the delay in getting this review out there, but as I was writing, it started out as one thing and sort became something else as I went along. Not unlike “Star Trek: Discovery”, actually, but we’ll get to that in due time. In the meantime, let’s go into the woods today: we’re … Continue reading Sometimes Star Trek: Discovery can’t see the wood for the trees. Into The Forest I Go (S1E09) Review

Thar she blows! Star Trek: Discovery – Magic To Make The Sanest Man Go Mad (S1E07) Review

*SPOILERS* Previously, on “Star Trek: Discovery”: Holy shit, do you think Lorca knew the rendezvous was a trap and saw it as a way to avoid being relieved of command? Is Ash Tyler a Klingon imposter? One so sophisticated that he’s fooled every conceivable process, procedure and device on the ship? And what’s the deal … Continue reading Thar she blows!

Set faces to stunned! It’s Swear Trek: Discovery – Choose Your Pain (S1E05) Review

*SPOILERS* There’s plenty to chew over in this week’s cold open but chew it well because you might choke on what follows in the rest of the episode. Having been called in by Starfleet Command to be told off for doing exactly what he was ordered to do, Lorca finds his journey back to the … Continue reading Set faces to stunned!
