review by
Mike Haberfelner


While on patrol through Federation space, the USS Shenzhou encounters an object of unknown origin that does the best to mask itself - and first officer Michael Burnham (Soneqa Martin-Green) volunteers to examine the thing, much against the advice of science officer Saru (Doug Jones), as he insists the radiation must be too strong for her - but Captain Philippa Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh) lets her go anyhow, trusting Burnham's judgement and precision on this - after all, Burnham's Vulcan-trained, so what's the worst that can happen. Well, once on the object, Burnham encounters a Klingon and only just about kills him before drifting off into space, and only with luck can the USS Shenzhou retrieve her. Thing is, nobody believes her Klingon encounter, attributing it to the stress of the situation and the fact that her parents have been killed in a Klingon raid - but then a Klingon ship materializes right next to the USS Shenzhou, and it's more than likely they're not here with peaceful intentions, even if they do nothing to attack. Burnham insists to strike the first blow, as this is what the Vulcans had done back when, and since they're at peace with the Klingons, but the Captain insists to wait, which causes Burnham to render her unconscious to try to get her will. But the Captain manages to regain control just before the first shot is fired  - and then a score of Klingon battleships soon materialize next to the first one ...

 

With Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek as such has arrived in the age of streaming and binge watching: Even though this one's the first episode, it doesn't so much set up the characters and premise but goes immediately into the thick of it and creates a greater story arc (and several character arcs) upon its surface it only scratches - and thus it's pretty impossible to judge this episode's story by its own merits. What the episode does show though are awesome sets and effects and a strong cast on one hand, a bit too much Kligon rituals on the other, and it has to be seen if some of the characters are not merely copies of earlier characters in the Star Trek universe. Be it as it may, it at least promises a fun ride!
