Star Trek Discovery: “The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry”


Last week’s monster is this week’s tragic alien. Plus bonus Michelle Yeoh! My review of the fourth episode of Star Trek Discovery.

An excerpt:

There’s a lot to like here. The basic story of realizing that Ripper isn’t just a big scary monster is in the finest tradition of Trek (e.g., “Arena” and “The Devil in the Dark“). The Klingon story moves along in an unexpected direction, and we continue the superlative interactions between Burnham and Saru. It’s not at all surprising that Lorca never consulted his first officer on the decision to keep Burnham on board, and Saru’s grumpiness is well played by Doug Jones. In general, Saru is the breakout character here, as his running commentary is magnificent, and Jones does an amazing job of expressing himself through all the latex.
