Did Star Trek: Discovery Just Introduce a Recurring Character on the Autism Spectrum?

Last night's Star Trek: Discovery was not only amazing TV, but should also quell the fears of anyone who watched the first two episodes and worried that they couldn't tell from the series opener just what kind of show they were getting. With Episode Three, "Context Is For Kings," we not only got super-clear about what to expect from the show, but we were introduced to an amazing cast of characters.

Star Trek: Discovery’s Female Lead Character Is Named Michael Burnham and I Can’t Stop Thinking About It

Names have power: just ask Rumpelstiltskin. As someone with a longstanding interest in the meaning of names, the first thing that caught my attention while watching Discovery was that the first officer played by Sonequa Martin-Green has a traditionally masculine name. I had to know more.

All the Things I Loved About Star Trek: Discovery, Despite One Huge Disappointment

Here's the truly disappointing thing.

Last night was the night that Trekkies all over the world were waiting for! Star Trek: Discovery had its two-hour premiere! Two hours, you ask? Yes indeedly. If you were only watching the CBS broadcast, you only saw what ended up being the first half of the pilot. Hour two was uploaded exclusively to CBS All Access, and it was well worth taking in on the new platform.

Star Trek: Discovery Won’t Let Critics Weigh in Before the Premiere, and There May Be Problems With CBS’ All Access App

Damage report.

Generally, when a property is restricted from advance critical review, that's a sure sign that there's no confidence in its quality and every attempt is being made to dodge bad press.

Star Trek: Voyager Has the Most Rewatched Episodes on Netflix, so We Must Be Living in the Mirror Universe

Up is down, down is up, and the Star Trek episode people are rewatching the most—actually replaying because they love it so much?—is the season finale of Voyager, which is ... not the greatest. At ease, ensign, I don't understand it either.

Happy Birthday, Star Trek: An Ode to Growing Up Trekkie

On this day in 1966, Star Trek (now known as The Original Series, but back then it was just Star Trek, because who woulda thought, you know?) first aired on American television. I didn't come along until thirteen years later, and didn't start watching Star Trek until about eight years after that. But once I sat down to watch "The Trouble With Tribbles," I was hooked for life.

Star Trek: Discovery Changing Roddenberry’s “No Conflict” Mandate. That’s Okay, So Did Roddenberry.

Gene Roddenberry, creator of Star Trek, had a very specific vision of the future. By the time Star Trek: The Next Generation rolled around, he insisted on a story mandate: the conflict can never be between our main characters, because in Starfleet, petty squabbles are a thing of the past. Which is weird, because on the Original Series, Spock and McCoy were all about petty squabbles, and Scotty would punch you in the face if you trash talked about the Enterprise.

Racists and Sexists Hate On Star Trek Discovery‘s Diversity Even Though It’s Still Unbalanced in Their Favor

It's not even that serious, you guys.

It always makes me laugh whenever the very people who complain that "liberals are too sensitive," or that we're seeing injustices where they don't exist are the first people to pitch a fit at the slightest hint that maybe white, straight, male, cis, able-bodied, straight-sized people aren't the only people in the world. It doesn't surprise me, but it does always make me laugh. After all, people often project their own behavior on others, amirite?
