CBS Television Studios held a panel on “Impact Storytelling” with four of its showrunners for the Television Critics Association. The panel included Dead to Me’s Liz Feldman, The Good Fight’s Michelle King, In the Dark’s Corinne Kingsbury and Star Trek: Discovery’s Michelle Paradise. The panel addressed how each show uses their narratives to discuss social issues. 

After the panel, Paradise remained to talk to reporters more specifically about Star Trek: Discovery season three. Since season two ended with the Discovery traveling 930 years into the future, season three takes Discovery from a prequel series into the far future of Star Trek. Paradise previewed the sorts of changes Trekkers can expect, and what’s not going to change in Star Trek: Discovery.

It’s a very interesting time to be a Star Trek fan. In addition to Star Trek: Discovery exploring brave new worlds on CBS All Access, several other series are in the works. For longtime fans, the upcoming Star Trek: Picard will offer a check-in with Patrick Stewart’s beloved Starfleet commander decades after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis. For newer fans, perhaps the comedic animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks will offer a bit of variety to an old but still powerful franchise.

All three shows were part of CBS All Access’s 90-minute Enter the Star Trek Universe panel at San Diego Comic-Con, where they pulled out all the stops and offered several looks at the future of the universe’s greatest science fiction franchise. Here’s what we learned.

It’s been a long road, Star Trek: Discovery fans, but everything we’ve seen has led us to this point: the finale.

“Such Sweet Sorrow: Part 2” has been an episode I’ve been anxiously anticipating all week. I didn’t know what to expect. Like everyone, I had some hopes, some theories, but nothing prepared me for what I saw. At the time of writing this, it’s been hours since I’ve seen the finale, and I’m still shaking in my figurative boots. This is without a doubt the best episode of Discovery ever, and it just might be the best episode the Star Trek franchise has ever had.

Here’s what made this episode the new gold standard for Star Trek episodes.

Star Trek Discovery Such Sweet Sorrow Review

I am beside myself.

Why am I writing in italics? Because I know no other way to describe my anxiety after seeing the penultimate Season 2 episode of Star Trek: Discovery, “Such Sweet Sorrow.”

Billed as the first part of a two-part season finale, “Such Sweet Sorrow” increased the drama a thousand-fold. This episode had me literally screaming “What’s going to happen?!” and squirming in my seat. Perhaps some of that was the orange-vanilla coke I drank. But I think most of that was due to the action, drama, and pure emotion that filled this week’s episode.

I don’t know where to start. So let’s go ahead and break down the top emotional moments of the episode.

Star Trek Discovery Perpetual Infinity review

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, Star Trek: Discovery has delivered yet another stellar episode. This level of amazing writing happens each week, so you’d think I’d be used to it by now. But in this week’s episode, “Perpetual Infinity,” we got something even better than another impressive script – we got a possible origin story of the Borg.

Here’s what we learned. Read More »

This year, Star Trek: Discovery has given us a delicious mix of the old Star Trek storytelling traditions combined with a contemporary spin. With the mysterious Red Angel at the center of our characters’ past, present and future, everything feels like it’s coming around full circle. That circular through-line continues within the show’s costumes, which are just as nostalgic as they are futuristic.

/Film was able to speak with Discovery’s costume designer Gersha Phillips about her process, combining the old with the new. Phillips also focused on how the costumes help push characterizations forward, whether that’s including Terran influences, pulling from earlier costumes, or drawing from real world influences like Black Ops uniforms.
