Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

Yeah totally that. I wish they would just stick to the usual Trek single stories and stop with the serialised story arc, that is just annoying.

I loved that ep because it not only took you back to the past and you remember what everyone was like to start off with, it took you to the future as well.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

There was also the TNG episode where Picard, Riker and troi I think got caught up in time bubbles that were all at different speeds of time or something like that. It was pretty cool.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

That episode was fantastic.

really felt more like Star Trek and having them pretend to be their mirror universe counterparts added a new twist to the MU.

Directed by Jonathon Frakes who was Will Riker in TNG and has directed a lot of Trek so knows his stuff.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

yeah I really enjoyed it and I would love to see him get more involved with the series going forward. Discovery isn't the best series around but I really do enjoy my space scifi and was looking forward to watching it last night. I think the thing which I love most about the show is how it is more like Enterprise in that it has an overlaying story arc but there are individual episode stories and when they want to they do 2 or 3 parts so they get to over something properly. When last nights ep started I thought "please don't try and get this resolved and back to normal in one episode".

There was a nice twist in last nights ep but the thing which I am looking forward to the most is seeing the dark side of Burnham. It will force her to express some emotions which she isn't used to and hopefully bring more of her human side out.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

This just gets better and better.

The twist at the end of this week with the captains true identity - awsome.

I'd never seen the theory about that so it was a surprise for me but it does explain so much about him. It was excellent.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

I had an idea from the very beginning about the Captain. Be just didn't fit with what a Starfleet Captain should be.

Plus the only Survivor of his ship was a bit suspect. Not to mention his obsession with the spore drive.

I did love the episode.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

Well those twists keep on coming

The finale next week, with Philippa in charge, is going to be very interesting.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

yeah, before they do the obvious moral-mutineering and I am hoping we see Philips be ruthless and kick ass big time. At the very least we need to see some Klingon ships destroyed without hesitation and no targeting or weapons/shields/engines.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

Hmm, well a bit of a damp ending to the war. I found that kinda hard to believe tbh.

But the Enterprise (!).

.. and they played the old TOS music for the end credits.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

It was good, really though they should have played the last episode out over 3 or more episodes, you can't stop a war that's already won dead in it's tracks in 5 minutes flat.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

I think with the show runner leaving so early on that what ever he had planned was abandoned quickly. Hence the delays and split season and they just wanted to end the war as quick as possible and get things Back on track to fit canon and more inline with Rodenberrys Trek vision.

Most of the episode was reasonable and again Tilly was awesome.

Loved the final moments, I had the biggest grin on my face. Glad the Connie looked mostly right and they didn't change too much.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

yeah, I was a bit disappointed going through it and ready to have a moan. I went into it expecting it to be a 2 parter at the very least with a cliffhanger to roll into season 2. The thing which made up for it for me was Burnham being reinstated. You know what I am like with my "realism" stuff and it was doing my head that a Specialist was having so much influence in not only command decisions, but the actual fate of the Federation and the quadrant. Like I said last week, it makes sense for her to be promoted and I am delighted she is back to Commander. I would like to say that she can now make decisions without having to explain herself but as science officer she is still going to have to justify everything to flipping Saru. I am hoping this is going to make her 2nd officer though and maybe she can lead more away missions and stuff like that.

Overall I enjoyed season 1, a lot more than I was expecting, and I hope they get season 2 ready (without delay) for the fall tv season.
