Critic reviews for Despite Yourself
Get excited, hardcore Trek fans, because we're in the Mirror Universe!
While I can't knock the writers for wanting to get their money's worth from the evil universe, it does sort of reduce this episode to just another prologue.
Star Trek Discovery is back, with an episode full of intense, daring and shocking moments that will leave more than one wondering what just happened and what's next for our characters.
Discovery's true strength is in its characters, in seeing how they exist with each other, and exploring how it can use its beloved scifi setting to ask intriguing questions, and mirror our own times.
