Star Trek: Discovery, S3.6: “Scavengers” has some trust issues…

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).
