Great episode.
6 April 2019 | by lordtakyonSee all my reviews

I must say season 2 has been far superior to season 1, and this episode doesn't disappoint. I must admit to being a huge fan of Pike, that guy is a legend. As a lifelong fan I'm unfortunate enough to know exactly how his life turns out in the not too distant future, thanks TOS, but I'll enjoy the ride for now.
