**** POTENTIAL SPOILERS ABOUT STARSHIP INTREPID ****
My biggest issue with Heavy Lies the Crown
and Transitions and Lamentations
is that I would expect the Federation to reassess the colonization request after the first attack, before allowing colonization to proceed. In particular, I would expect the Federation to wish to determine first why the Surai are attacking, and whether they already have any legitimate claim to the Charybdis Sector
I realize that Section 31 is pushing for colonization for some reason, which could explain the Federation position, but why hasn't this incongruity occurred to the colonists and the crew of the Intrepid
? Maybe I missed something, too, and perhaps these questions will be addressed in future episodes.
Rest assured though, I will be watching. I'm enjoying Intrepid
