‘Star Trek: Discovery’ goes ‘Scooby-Doo’ in season 3, episode 3

Warning: The spoilers enter through the ears and wrap themselves around the cerebral cortex.

Episode three of the third season of “Star Trek: Discovery” warps on to CBS All Access today. Now that we’re caught up with what happened to both Commander Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) in the premiere and the crew of the USS Discovery (in episode two) as they were separated in space-time while traversing the time wormhole, Season 3 moves forward with everyone together. And therein lies the problem. 

It would’ve been nice to see Burnham and Book (David Ajala) spend more of the series on their own — and likewise the crew of the Discovery— before they all met up. It would have been a little like the simultaneous plots running onboard the Battlestar Galactica and with Lt. ‘Boomer’ Valerii and Capt. ‘Helo’ Agathon on Caprica in Ron Moore’s reimagining of that show. That would’ve given Saru and the crew of the Discovery a nice opportunity to have an equal share of the plot, rather than having Burnham always being the one driving the story forward. Or two primary plots, rather than a primary and a secondary.
