I can finally say an episode of Star Trek: Discovery has left me completely satisfied.

In my opinion, this was the best episode so far of this new series. The plot was well executed and the acting outstanding. It left me looking forward to the future of the series.

If you had any doubts they will be allayed. You will not be disappointed in this show any longer.

Gene would be proud. Bravo to the producers and cast!
