In many ways, this season felt very much like a much-needed reset from the previous one. The Klingon war is over, and the Federation is consumed by a new scientific pursuit: mysterious red bursts of light that have appeared across 30,000 light years.The scene that really drove home the reset was the formal roll call, where our bridge characters say their names—really, directly to the audience.It’s still baffling that we went an entire season without knowing most of the bridge crew’s names! Yes, we sort of got to know a handful of characters, but there are regular faces that we’ve seen many times on the bridge. If like the other shows, where the bulk of each episode happens in the nerve center of the ship, it would help to know who we’re interacting with. . More

Welcome back to the weekly Star Trek: Discovery recap, reactions, and ruminations posts! Star Trek: Discovery season 2 episode 1 gave us a lot of great things. But, before we get to that, a bit about this series of posts if you’re unfamiliar with them. Every week, a couple days after an episode drops, I briefly recap the episode, share reactions from my Star Trek community, and ruminate about the larger themes of the episode. These posts won’t be containing lengthy recaps, but, instead, focus on the basics of what we learn. Catch up on season one discussion of Star Trek: Discovery. The USS Discovery find the USS Enterprise in distress. After Tilly comes up with a brilliant way to communicate with the Enterprise, Captain Pike comes on-board the Discovery and takes command. As usual, Tilly is good for many laughs through the episode. Sarek is still on-board the Discovery, and we begin to learn a little bit about why we never knew Spock had an older foster sister. There were also some great father/daughter moments between Sarek and Burnham that show us their relationship is beginning to heal after the events of season one. There are strange signals coming from different points around the galaxy—signals that resemble a story from Burnham’s childhood. More
