Star Trek Discovery Showrunners Fired

Star Trek: Discovery is making some changes behind the scenes, with showrunning team Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts being removed from the series and replaced with executive producer Alex Kurtzman.

This episode concluded with me holding my breath again. I can’t take the stress anymore! But before I get ahead of myself, let’s establish one clear outcome of this episode…
