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.

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.

*SPOILERS* Oh man, have you seen “The Cloverfield Paradox”? No, of course not because Monday night is “Star Trek: Discovery” night! As we learned last week, the USS Discovery has been missing for nine months and the baby of destiny that’s gestated in that time is an imminent Klingon victory. While they wait to make … Continue reading Offering up a buffet of bad ideas, it’s BAU on ST:D. Star Trek: Discovery – The War Without, The War Within (S1E14) Review

Star Trek: Discovery does what Star Wars: The Last Jedi refused to do. Vaulting Ambition (S1E12) Review

*SPOILERS* The ambition may be vaulting, but it’s certainly not boundless as “Star Trek: Discovery” brings us an episode that’s barely thirty-eight minutes long (including recap). Still, to rewind a bit from ‘vaulting ambition’, if it were done when 'tis done, then 'twere well it were done quickly. Unfortunately, this is “Star Trek: Discovery” and … Continue reading Star Trek: Discovery does what Star Wars: The Last Jedi refused to do. Vaulting Ambition (S1E12) Review

Mirror, mirror on wall, why does Discovery have hardly any crew at all? Star Trek: Discovery (S1E10) Despite Yourself Review

Previously, on “Star Trek: Discovery”: This; This; And this; This too; And this; Not forgetting this; And of course, this; Also this; And finally this. *SPOILERS* And…we’re back. It’s been, what? Nine weeks since we left our heroes stranded amidst Klingon debris in a mysterious galactic location and you know what? I’d be lying if … Continue reading Mirror, mirror on wall, why does Discovery have hardly any crew at all? Star Trek: Discovery (S1E10) Despite Yourself 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

The away team’s away with the fairies in Star Trek: Discovery – Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum (S1E08) Review

*SPOILERS* If you type the title of this week’s episode into Google Translate, you get “If you want peace, prepare Geller”, but you can quash those fanfic dreams of the Discovery crew encountering the cast of “Friends” – this episode is all about confirming that any suspicions you might be harbouring about Ash Tyler are … Continue reading The away team’s away with the fairies in Star Trek: Discovery – Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum (S1E08) Review

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!

Wordy title alert! Star Trek: Discovery – The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not For The Lamb’s Cry (S1E04) Review

*SPOILERS* Don’t you just love the episode title? Very “For The World Is Hollow And I Have Touched The Sky”. Sadly nobody actually says the episode title but it’d be tricky to drop it into casual everyday conversation unless, I guess, the conversation started with ‘What would be an overly-florid way of summarising Lorca’s command … Continue reading Wordy title alert!

Star Trek: Discovery leaves me feeling…energised. The Vulcan Hello (S1E01) Review

*SPOILERS* Things haven’t been great between me and “Star Trek” for some time. Oh sure, we still go through the motions, remembering birthdays, anniversaries all the while secretly reminiscing about the good old days when we were inseparable, glued to the screen as Kirk, Picard, Sisko and even Janeaway roamed the universe.  The magic died … Continue reading Star Trek: Discovery leaves me feeling…energised.
