Star Trek Discovery 2.05 – Saints of Imperfection
This encapsulates all the thing I don’t like about Star Trek:
A crew member has gone missing. Someone has come up with a crazy scheme to get them back. Never mind the ‘needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one’. The ship is going into uncharted territory with hand waving science. In they go, the ship is at risk immediately with a strangely accurate clock ticking down to their destruction.
The rescue team, with minutes to go indulge in a ‘chat’ to retrieve another ‘dead’ crew member. Then, deus ex machina, there is another ship that can help. And after wandering around a bit they all successfully come home.
