*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.

Craggus’ Trek Trek – Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) Review
