Review: Star Trek: Discovery Embraces the Dark Side in “Despite Yourself”

by Jeff Fountainon January 8, 2018
*SPOILERS AHEAD* As much as I’ve enjoyed the darker tone of Discovery, I was beginning to wonder where they were going to take this. I mean, you can’t have a show about a war with the Klingons forever, good or bad. Enter the Mirror Universe, the Terran Empire and the possibilities of the Klingon war […]


Star Trek Discovery Review: ‘Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad’

by Jeff Fountainon October 30, 2017
I must admit I wasn’t that thrilled to hear that this week’s episode was going to involve a time loop. Star Trek has been using this as a storytelling device for a while now and it sounded too much like a throwaway episode to me. However, using Harry Mudd helped changed things up and we […]

by Jeff Fountainon October 9, 2017
One of the biggest complaints about Discovery has been how it is too militaristic, too dark and how the human beings are not the enlightened species they will become in the original series in only ten short years later. However, Michael Burnham and Lt. Paul Stamets take big steps towards that humanity this week, causing […]


Review: Star Trek Discovery Hits All The Right Notes in “Context is For Kings”

by Jeff Fountainon October 2, 2017
Science, war, darkness, humor, nerds….”Context is For Kings” was pure Star Trek from beginning to end and even threw some Alice in Wonderland into the plot to give it the extra bit of icing on a very well done cake. We pick up the story six months after the Battle at Binary Stars and see […]
