Vina, who has experienced "discipline" by the Talosians, has a constant sympathy for them. She has been abused, yet becomes apologetic with her abusers.
You think this is a plot hole? You know any abuse survivors? I'd call it a reasonably observant bit of characterization.

Christopher Pike questions his command, and this isn't given closure at the end of the episode.
No.

Pike is traumatized by the consequences of decisions he's made and is considering fleeing to a less stressful existence. The entire episode is then devoted to examining this fantasy and Pike addresses it and his conclusions about it directly and at length in his closing speech to Boyce.
