The fourth episode of Discovery was not the strongest episode of Discovery...
The new series may have found its voice this week, in an episode guest-starring Charlize Theron and directed by TNG's Jonathan Frakes.
Discovery's third episode comes into its own, ostensibly setting up the crew we will be spending the rest of the season with.
Despite a strong story, this week's episode just isn't any fun.
The two-part premiere effectively set up an exciting premise, though there were a few issues with the new series.
The newest episode doubles down on the Star Trek feel, while reinforcing MacFarlane's place in the series.
Seth MacFarlane's Trek homage is fun, but grounded in a solid sci-fi story.
