A HERO’S DEMISE
Following immediately on from the cliffhanger which left jaws agape at the close of “The Vulcan Hello” (reviewed HERE), Star Trek: Discovery episode 1.2 feels more like the second half of a two-part story than an isolated instalment in its own right. It is now clear why CBS and Netflix aired/released both episodes at the same time, because this is essentially the conclusion of the new show’s prologue; the televisual equivalent of a comic issue zero.
