‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 2 Ends With an Episode That is Everything ‘Trek’ Should Be

It’s been a long road, Star Trek: Discovery fans, but everything we’ve seen has led us to this point: the finale. “Such Sweet Sorrow: Part 2” has been an episode I’ve been anxiously anticipating all week. I didn’t know what to expect. Like everyone, I had some hopes, some theories, but nothing prepared me for what I saw. At the time of writing this, it’s been hours since I’ve seen the finale, and I’m still shaking in my figurative boots. This is without a doubt the best episode of Disco...

I am beside myself. Why am I writing in italics? Because I know no other way to describe my anxiety after seeing the penultimate Season 2 episode of Star Trek: Discovery, “Such Sweet Sorrow.” Billed as the first part of a two-part season finale, “Such Sweet Sorrow” increased the drama a thousand-fold. This episode had me literally screaming “What’s going to happen?!” and squirming in my seat. Perhaps some of that was the orange-vanilla coke I drank. But I think most of that was due to the...

On Adam Savage's Tested: "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" and the Voyager Golden Record

In 1979, the USS Enterprise flew onto the big screen in Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Without giving away too much of the plot, NASA's Voyager probes, launched in 1977, featured prominently in the film. Of course, the Voyager probes carry the Voyager Golden Record, the iconic message for extraterrestrials that my friends Timothy Daly, Lawrence Azerrad, and I released on vinyl for the first time as a lavish box set. While the Voyager Record isn't mentioned in Star Trek: The Motion Picture, I w...
