Star Trek: Discovery season 3 arrived on CBS All Access and UK Netflix in October but when is episode 3 released and how many episodes are there in total?
After a slightly stuttering start in 2017’s season 1, Star Trek: Discovery has since found its feet and started to soar.
The end of season 1 saw the Federation embroiled in an all-out war against the Klingons, the fallout from which was a big factor in season 2 as a new threat emerged.

As a result, fans have been left wondering when episode 3 of Star Trek: Discovery season 3 will release.
