The latest episode of Star Trek: Discovery is now available to stream on CBS-All Access, and it’s consistent with the terrific offerings of this third (and easily best) season of the series to date (kudos to new showrunner Michelle Paradise). That said, there are some choices made in this episode which some fans may find……
