Star Trek: Discovery Goes Psychic & Psychedelic in 'Lethe': Season 1, Episode 6 Review (Synopsis)
-Federico García LorcaIn an episode filled with Vulcan mindmelds, Klingon treachery, a spectacular nebula, themes of racial purity, and PTSD, you’d think all the ingredients were there for a spectacular episode of Star Trek: Discovery. Image credit: Ben Mark Holzberg/CBS © 2017 CBS Interactive. The Cornwell/Lorca scenes can’t save the episode, and the science part of the science fiction never even appears. Image credit: NASA, ESA, and W. Keel (University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa), of NGC 5972. After a promising fifth episode, Star Trek: Discovery returns to its worst impulses in Episode 6, ‘Lethe’.
