Star Trek: Discovery - Context Is for Kings television review

Set six-months after the Battle of the Binary Stars, “Context Is for Kings” offers a secondary pilot for the show as the court-martialed Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) finds herself aboard the U.S.S.

Events come to a head with the limited-powered Flash getting his butt kicked by the Mirror Master and a bit of a schmaltzy epilogue featuring Iris and Barry separated from each other for the foreseeable future.
