One of the most prevalent fan theories about Star Trek: Discovery concerns whether the series is set in the TOS era, or some new timeline that will be erased or altered before the series’ end. After reading the (excellent) first Discovery novel, Desperate Hours, I believe we have an answer. (Spoilers ahead for the…
Just finished both episodes of Star Trek: Discovery, and holy crap was that fun. There’s action, exploration, high stakes, and betrayal.
