Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 Episode 13

“That Hope Is You Part 2” Star Trek: Discovery ends its third season with a resolution to the Su’Kal plot and a frantic race to retake the ship from Osyraa. Osyraa as a villain has been curiously handled over the season. She started out as a name that was periodically dropped to set up the…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 Episode 12

“There is a Tide…” Star Trek: Discovery airs its penultimate episode with the ship under siege and an offer that could change the Federation forever. One of the bigger problems that has plagued this season is world building or the lack of it. Venturing into a new and unexplored time period provides plenty of opportunity…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 Episode 11

“Su’Kal” Star Trek: Discovery reveals the source of The Burn and gives Tilly a trial by fire in the Captain’s chair. This won’t be new information to anyone who has read any of my reviews this season but I don’t find The Burn to be an engaging mystery. It’s a catastrophic event that happened prior…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 Episode 10

“Terra Firma Part 2” Star Trek: Discovery continues to focus on Georgiou as she relives a significant time in her life. This episode has a mountain to climb going in as success is largely dependent on how much you can invest in the Mirror Universe. I’m of the opinion that the Mirror Universe is a…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 Episode 9

“Terra Firma Part 1” Star Trek: Discovery devotes time to finding a solution to Georgiou’s problem as death quickly approaches for her. After all the posturing in the previous episode as to the cause of Georgiou’s issues it turns out the answer was nearby all along. All Culber had to do was ask the now…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 Episode 8

“The Sanctuary” Star Trek: Discovery¬†introduces the villainous Osyraa and presents a difficult situation for the Discovery crew to navigate. So far this season has had an issue with world building in that elements are introduced and not covered in any great detail. The Emerald Chain have been referenced a lot and used as an antagonist…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 Episode 7

“Unification III” Star Trek: Discovery visits what used to be known as the Vulcans in search for more information that could unravel the mystery of The Burn. The fact that The Burn propels so much of the storytelling in this season is something I find immensely problematic. Mileage will definitely vary but I don’t find…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 Episode 6

“Scavengers” Star Trek: Discovery sees Burnham go Rogue in order to rescue Book and track down intelligence that could be pivotal in learning the cause of The Burn. I find myself consistently in two minds about this season. On one hand I’m largely on board with the return to episodic storytelling with character based threads…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 Episode 5

“Die Trying” Star Trek: Discovery connects with the Federation and gets a sense of what has changed about the organisation since their native time. The structure of this season remains what I anticipated it would be when I reviewed the third episode; self contained stories that feed into each other but remain their own distinct…
