Star Trek: Discovery‘s “All In”

Everyone goes to the Vegas Planet! Owosekun does Space Boxing! Book and Burnham play Space Poker! No, it’s not a Glen Larson show from 1979, it’s the latest episode of Star Trek: Discovery, and it’s actually a lot of fun, and moves things along nicely. My review of “All In.”

An excerpt:

Great execution can make up for a terrible idea. “All In” does not have great execution, but it is good, and there’s something to be said for a dopey fun cliché-ridden sci-fi story, especially since it provides some good character bits for Burnham, Book, Tarka, and Owosekun, as well as Rillak and Vance, and it’s fun to get a glimpse into Burnham and Book’s year of Courier-ing between “That Hope is You, Part 1” and “Far from Home.”
