This episode felt rushed and messy, obstacles being set up and solved almost instantly.
I can't possibly know what the show is running towards, but the ride doesn't seem worth it.
We get fun scenes, beautiful visuals and Doug Jones? Sure, but at the expense of really knowing these characters and getting enough time with them. Time to understand and feel with them.
Seems like Star Trek Discovery is establishing itself with nice peak moments, connected by a whole lot of nothing.
Discovery still has potential (and budget) to become a great sci fi show, here's to hoping they'll slow it down eventually.
