Star Trek Discovery 1.10 FAQ

What’s it called?
“Despite Yourself.”

Who’s responsible?
This is the first produced teleplay credited to Sean Cochran, who was production assistant on 2008’s “Lipstick Jungle” and assistant to the executive producers on the 2011 series “Off The Map.”

What says CBS All Access?
“While in unfamiliar territory, the U.S.S. Discovery crew is forced to get creative in their next efforts to survive opposing and unprecedented forces and return home.”

How does it start?
“Yellow alert. This isn’t Starbase 46. Where the hell are we?”

Is everybody now in the Mirror Universe?
Plot details are under embargo. Director Jonathan Frakes, however, revealed that some part of this season is set in The Mirror Universe.

Does this show still suck?
I wish the news were better.

The big news?
I can’t speak of the biggest news. But Stamets now has superstrength thanks for his “spiking adrenals.”

Stamets lives?
He is alive as the episode begins, but he is not himself.

What else is CBSAA not telling us?
Lots. Tyler is still being dispatched on missions despite his PTSD.

What’s good?
At one point Capt. Lorca pretends to be an engineer with a Scottish accent.

What’s not so good?
I still find it difficult to care about any of these characters. I continue to find this show predictable and unengaging. It continues to depress me that the same showrunners – Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts – are already talking like they’ll be overseeing this show’s second season.

How does it end, spoiler boy?
“I’m saying it back,” replies Michael Burnham.

9 p.m. Sunday. CBSAA.
