The Trekzone Review

Welcome to the series proper, as we’re introduced to our regulars in Lorca, Stametts, Tyler and Tilly… and what an introduction, straight into the fray of some type of experiment that’s taken out the sister ship. The action was tense, the character development was relegated to the B-plot and the resolution was sort of there.

I’m certainly adapting to this new Trek, but having just watched DS9 & Voyager’s finale’s over the weekend I can’t help but feel a sense of longing for that era of Trek again – sure Larry and I discussed the reasons why we can’t go back there just yet, but I’m allowed to miss it.

That Starfleet uniform just fits Jason Isaacs doesn’t it? He commands the presence and makes the role of mysterious Captain his own. Cadet Tilly is awesome, a nervous ball of energy that I can totally relate to, and a ranga (finally, some representation!)
