There's something just as heartening to be found in the realization that a series can look at its own past and decide that an old outcome just wasn't good enough and must not be allowed to stand.

The episode itself was a dream for fans of the franchise.

It's very bad, and more than anything it underlines how empty this new show is fast becoming; how much of its promise has been squandered on an inane fixation with the past; and how little it has to offer at this point.

The scene is incredibly painful to watch, with Sonequa Martin-Green doing some of her best work yet reliving her worst memory.

Altogether this outing proves that Disco can look to the past while also charting its own course.

It demonstrates the newest show's ability to do what its predecessors did with their predecessors, to spin what we already know about Trek in a way that feels respectfully new.

A convoluted but absolutely delightful episode, has several bits of catnip for Trek aficionados.

Now, the shoe has finally dropped and did so in a satisfyingly dramatic fashion-not just on the grand level of this season's arc, but on a character level too, especially for Michael and Stamets.

Did anyone else laugh out loud when they heard Saru's description of the situation? The humor in this season is on point.

Good goals, yes, but also veering uncomfortably close to that Chosen One trope I like to see Star Trek stories-and, frankly, all stories, at this point-avoid.

Even in such a serious episode, Spock and Michael had a real bickering-kids vibe... It paves the way for a fun but believable new side to Spock, who currently takes himself far too seriously.
