Plot takes a back seat to some very welcome character development.
We learn more about Airiam and Section 31, and it’s mostly great.
Going back to where Star Trek began…
The Vulcan family drama is turned up to eleven; also there is a space squid.
Saru goes home again.
Discovery takes on a classic TNG episode and makes it its own.
Disco returns to classic form: some characters make terrible choices, others make merely questionable ones; also there is Some Pacing.
I love it.
