A still Spock-less Discovery has a field day in the playground of big ideas surrounding science and faith in "New Eden."
Despite Spock still not being physically present by New Eden, his importance to the story is quickly re-emphasised.
This colony also gave us one of the biggest Star Trek trademarks - a moment to think about the unity of life.
It's immensely enjoyable to see that Discovery is just as good at interrupting its Trek roots, as it is at introducing new ideas and concepts to the franchise.
Anthony Rapp's expressions as this character are just consistently excellent.
It's easy enough to watch, if too hasty to get into the pew-pew space battle stuff. As with all things Trek, some fans will love this version, others will despise it.
Having Spock institutionalized at any point in his career - and that never coming up ever in any Trek episode or movie is a big pill to swallow.
The rest of the crew has one (1) hour to figure out how to stop it all from happening. Fun! And, one might say, extremely too coincidental!
Season 2 continues to excel as it shifts to a more traditional Trek-like approach in terms of tone and even formula, as evidenced by the planet-of-the-week plot.
I love this setup because it's so rich with potential.
Considering we're only on episode two, it's not surprising that we reach no definitive conclusion either way by the hour's end.
