Star Trek: Discovery – Season 4 Episode 7

We’re back!!! We’ve been behind all season, and just as we start catching up, we slowed down again, and the Star Trek: Prodigy episode got out several days before us. It’s Brian again, and on this episode, Ruthie and I talk through Star Trek: Discovery, Season 4 Episode 7, titled …But to Connect. This episode was written by Terri Hughes Burton (not Anne Cofell Saunders, as I said in the episode) & Carlos Cisco, and it was directed by Lee Rose.

It was a mixed bag on this episode for both of us. There were several things to like, but there were also some head-scratchers and things to dislike.
