"Despite Yourself"

As we open the second half of the first season of Star Trek: Discovery, Vickie and Elizabeth are left stunned by an episode that is in every way unexpected. The Discovery crew learn they have left their universe and have entered another - purposefully via Captain Lorca's navigation command override? Or through accidentally through an error with the spore drive?

To survive, the crew must take on the roles of their mirror universe counterparts with Captain Tilly threatening other officers, Captain Burnham killing her successor, and Captain Lorca paying a visit to the agony booth. Lieutenant Stamets' mind is traversing space and time, and Lieutenant Tyler struggles with demons within and without, leaving us shocked. It's Mom's Going Boldly!

 

Moms Going Boldly is two moms who are Star Trek fans and who also happen to write about autism, talking about the new Star Trek: Discovery television series. We make comparisons to the older series, the movies, and throw in a little bit of autism when we see it. It's not polished, it won't come out regularly but we're having fun!
