…is for Kings' review: What is the mysterious Captain Lorca up to?.

"Even though we last saw Michael Burnham clapped in irons and on her way to what she was told would be a lifetime in the big house, Star Trek: Discovery was never likely to turn into The Dilithium Redemption.

Sure enough, this third episode never even makes it to the prison, with Burnham and her fellow lags picked up by a mysterious ship after a mid-flight accident takes out the pilot of the shuttle taking them to jail. And which ship is it? None other than the USS Discovery, finally making its bow in the third episode of the show named after it.

It doesn't seem a happy place, either, and after last week's trigger-happy pilot, this incarnation of Trek might feel too Battlestar Galactica for purists it even shares a key cast member, with Rekha Sharma (President Roslin's aide in BG) showing up as the Discovery's head of security…"

So someone is actually paying to see a single tv show?

I've seen all three episodes and so far I'm not very pleased with STD.

My friend is paying for it and if he didn't I wouldn't be watching it,so I get to see it free but still I don't care for it.

Its on Netflix…
Been watching it- always want to like Trek but can never quite manage it.

This one is no different. The main character is fairly unlikeable, and the rest of the characters seem very mono- dimensional. Maybe thats just so they develop the characters, but I cant help doubting they'll actually bother- I do wonder whether any of the writers have actually met a real human being- certainly none of the cast acts like one.

No Netflix in the US we are stuck paying for CBS All Access. Or not paying in my case.

Seen ep4.

I wonder…which room on Discovery is the Giant Idiot Ball kept in?

Presumably there is some sort of rota to decide which crewman gets to play with it each episode…
