A welcome return to Star Trek
26 January 2019 | by rod_burley204See all my reviews

The best episode so far, although the previous one was equally good. Anson Mount is making Pike his own character and steals every scene that he is in. Jonathan Frakes continues to prove his Direction skills and love for Star Trek continues. Hopefully he will be directing more episodes soon.
