I just started watching Discovery. Loved TOS, and Next Generation. But could never watch DS9, Voyager, or Enterprise.. They just didn't capture the magic.. All that said All episodes of Discovery have been great so far, with "If Memory Serves" being the best I've seen yet. One of the best Trek (all shows included) episodes ever. The intro really set the tone.. flashbacks to "The Cage" were great! What trek fan wouldn't cheer for the inclusion of Leonard Nimoy as a part of a Trek episode? Anson Mount brings that original series feel to Discovery and I hope he remains a part of the show after Season 2. Great stuff, this show needs to be on broadcast tv.. fantastic
