Critic Reviews for Perpetual Infinity

The episode does nothing to calm my fear that this plotline is moving towards a Borg origin story.

Spock has long struggled with his dual nature, and it's great to see it as an asset here, rather than the hindrance he's long treated it as.

Chockfull of plot and technical techings of the tech, it's got enough action and character to balance things out nicely.

The only thing I care about is Sonequa Martin-Green's acting, which was next level this episode.

I've heard from extremely reputable sources that the way this show is handling dark matter is kinda embarrassing, but whatever, this sounds fine to me, a rube.

"Perpetual Infinity" clicks, largely because the big concepts it's trafficking in are contextualized by a very personal tragedy.

If this is what Star Trek: Discovery looks like when it properly treats Michael like the main character she ostensibly is, then keep it coming.

Mar 29, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Star Trek: Discovery gave Gabrielle and Michael Burnham a story worthy to be regarded alongside Ben and Jake Sisko's.

In this week's episode, "Perpetual Infinity," we got something even better than another impressive script - we got a possible origin story of the Borg.

Mar 29, 2019 | Full Review…

Discovery's continued problem is its relentless focus on a big looming Bad Guy or conflict rather than just letting our crew explore the universe on the Federation's flagship science vessel and get to know each other.
