Star Trek: Discovery‘s “Light and Shadows”


Burnham finally finds Spock, Sarek and Amanda have it out, Pike and Tyler have it out, and Stamets and Tilly save the day with science! My take on Star Trek: Discovery‘s “Light and Shadows.”

An excerpt:

The Sarek family dynamics is of much more interest to me than the tiresome Section 31 maneuvering, which is only even tolerable due to Yeoh being at the center of it. (I found the revelation that Leland was involved in the death of Burnham’s parents to be spectacularly uninteresting and unmoving.) Spock himself remains simply a Maguffin, not speaking a single coherent word the entire episode. Let’s hope that next week Peck gets more of a chance to actually play the character.
