Airiam (Sarah Mitich) - Star Trek Discovery S02E02 New Eden Review

Star Trek Discovery S02E02 New Eden Review

In the aftermath of last week’s episode it is clear Discovery wants to focus on a mystery. What is the asteroid that damaged the USS Hiawatha made off? What or who is the angelic figure Michael Burnham saw on the asteroid and why did her foster brother Spock take leave from the Enterprise and check himself into mental health facility. That is just for starters. The season premiere did plenty of other things correct as well. To a degree – the season’s second episode falters. Now don’t get me wrong. The episode is ounces of fun. It’s just that is...

After the first two episodes I still did not feel like I knew what the show was about. Who would be given screen time? Were all the characters besides Burnham just transient? After watching episodes 3 and 4 I can answer those questions. The story continues in serial fashion – Burnham...

Star Trek Discovery tie-in Comic and Novel arriving soon

Star Trek Discovery Tie-ins Comic and Novel Its been a busy few months for Star Trek Discovery. With trailers and panels Trek fans are slowly beginning to get an idea of what the series is about. Sadly not all fan reaction has been positive. For a show set 10 years before TOS, in possible yet another alternate reality, it looks suspiciously like BSG meets DS9. That along with the controversy surrounding cast diversity (its 2017!) and the way the Klingon’s look Discovery is limping along to its September 24th release date. But that day will come and I am at least...
