One of the best Discovery this far.
7 April 2019 | by jfcc9086See all my reviews

I saw all ST ep. and movies. Took me 40y. Slowly... Im not a Trekkie per say. I just watch as they come out. Nah I am.... Some Discovery episodes, are total duds. Amongst the worst of the +- 800 ep. in 55y. Id put 5 of them in the worst 20. But this one is on par with the best +- 5ep of ST D. The connection scene with The Menagerie (1966) reboot of the pilot ep. (1964) that never aired back then, is so strong. That that new scene is a ST franchise classic! A Star Trek ep rating of 9.
