review by
Mike Haberfelner


Vulcan ambassador Sarek (James Frain) is on his way to negotiations with the Klingons when his pilot, a logic extremist, blows himself up, sends their ship into a nebula, and injures Sarek gravely in the process ... and Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) feels his pain, as she's his foster daughter (yep, she's the foster sister of Spock - who's not in this episode) and they did a mind-meld once. Naturally, she wants to save Sarek, but the Discovery can't make it into the nebula without being blown up - so Burnham, together with new crewmember Ash Tyler (Shazad Latif) and constantly blabbering Tilly (Mary Wiseman), she takes a shuttle into the nebula, and since sensors don't work once inside, she tries to find him on a mental level - but for some reason, he doesn't want her in his brain and tries to chug her out repeatedly until they manage to work through all kinds of father-daughter issues, Vulcan-style. And then Sarek lets himself be saved. But back on the Discovery, it's determined he's much to sick to rendez-vous with the Klingons, so Starfleet admiral Cornwell (Jayne Brook), who has only come to assess the ship's captain Lorca (Jason Isaacs) and then landed in his bed, goes in his stead - only to find out the whole thing was a Klingon trap ...

 

I won't mince words here, this is the worst episode of Star Trek: Discovery so far: Basically it's a rehash of the logic vs emotion/Vulcan vs human concept that has been repeated again and again since the original series, and it's told here without any charme let alone wit. And the father-daughter issues Burnham and Sarek go through are abysmally clichéed, all topped off by the rather forced revelation that Burnham is Spock's foster sister. And the dialogue in this one is terribly stilted and bland at the same time, with Burnham being the motivational speaker to Tilly probably taking the cake. Of course, binging the series as a whole, you pretty much have to watch this one - it's just not really worth your while ...
