Review: Star Trek: Discovery Season 1 Episode 6 “Lethe”

Boasting excellent visual effects, cinematic direction, and a flawless sense of scope and mythological weight, ‘Star Trek’ continues to capitalise upon emotion urgency that feels genuinely organic to characters, rather than tacked on or contrived. The writers have also successfully created harmony between the episodic nature of the show, with its ‘case of the week’-like set-up, and more serialised sense of character, especially with Michael who receives real, meaningful development that I hope is sustained. While the story may go rather step-by-step, and the editing with Lorca’s story often is too sudden, disregarding consistent pace or tone, the episode remains compelling and makes the audience invest further in its characters. 8.4/10
