Short Treks: “Ask Not”

ShortTrek-AskNot

The shortest of the Short Treks has a predictable plot and continues Starfleet’s traditions of being mean to people who are training for things, but it works because Anson Mount’s Christopher Pike remains magnificent. Check out my review of “Ask Not.”

An excerpt:

Seriously, we have got to see more of these people. They built a whole Enterprise set (we see engineering for the first time in this short), and those aren’t cheap. They’ve got a popular, excellent trio for the top of the ensemble ready to go. It isn’t easy to fill 55-year-old shoes occupied by the most popular character in SF TV history, Gene Roddenberry’s wife, and Jesus Christ, but Peck, Romijn, and especially Mount have not just filled the shoes, but continued to dance in them. If there isn’t a Pike show on CBS All Access some time in the next year, a serious crime against nature will have been committed.
