Critic Reviews for Will You Take My Hand?

We were predicting more action, perhaps, especially given the battle-heavy episodes that preceded the finale, but honestly, this was good. This was Star Trek, albeit unlike any Star Trek that's come before.

What surprised me most about "Will You Take My Hand" is that, for such an eventful episode, and a season finale, there were so many great quiet moments.

The whole point of this series, and this franchise, is to explore strange new worlds. That's what I want to do. Let's turn Discovery back into a science vessel, go on black alert, and explore! I don't need to see the Enterprise again.

From the questionable beginning to the "holy schnikes" ending, it was thoroughly enjoyable.

While hardcore Trekkies will struggle to love it, and plot holes abound towards the end, Discovery is the Star Trek we need right now.

'Will you take my hand?' wraps up a season in a way that's at once frustrating and satisfying, while still hitting those Trek pleasure centres deep in the brain. Oddly enough, a total appropriate way to finish.

The ending message is undoubtedly a segue into the world we've seen in Star Trek: The Original Series, and gives Discovery's position as a prequel new grounding and more merit amidst criticisms that it's been too dark.

For now, it's enough that this weird, wonderful, diverse version of Star Trek is on the air, but I'd like to see this show truly hit warp after a wobbly, sublight first season. It is a Star Trek tradition.

There's really no way around this: Tonight was a bad finale! Discovery has had occasional moments, but overall it's been shaky as hell.

Feb 12, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Let Discovery discover. Let's seek out new life and new civilizations, not give strange new faces and characterizations to old Trek standards in an attempt to earn credit via nostalgia instead of good plotting and good writing.
