6 months after the incident that plummeted the federation into a war with the Klingons, we find Michael Burnham (now a prisoner) on her way to a dilithium mine as part of a prison labor force. After a mishap aboard her shuttle we find her and fellow prisoners rescued by the U.S.S. Discovery and so our adventure begins on board the show's namesake. Find out what we think about this strange (second pilot) episode of Star Trek Discovery. Spoilers ahead!
It has been 12 years since a Star Trek series has graced our lives and after a very long wait we are introduced to a new crew and new adventures set 10 years before Star Trek the Original Series. While the show's writing is promising, there are many things about it which raise a Vulcan eyebrow so to speak. Find out what we think about the first two episodes in our discussion with Gary, from Trekkerprise and let us know what you thought of the premiere episodes of Star Trek Discovery.
