In “Context Is for Kings”, we meet the USS Discovery, Captain Lorca, Lt. Stamets, and, best of all, Cadet Sylvia Tilly. Nothing else matters. Cadet Sylvia Tilly needs to be retconned into all previous Trek series. Oh yeah, and some other stuff happened about a new way to fly on fungus spores. Wait. What, Star Trek: Discovery?
