    Anyone who watched last night’s Star Trek: Discovery episode got to see quite a bit of Airiam, played by Hannah Cheesman, and...

    Spoilers, but here's a link to my post regarding Airiam on the episode page for those who missed it (alot of work went into it!), and a summary in spoiler text:
    In the arms of the angel
    Fly away from here
    From this dark cold hotel room
    And the endlessness that you fear
    You are pulled from the wreckage
    Of your silent reverie
    May you find some comfort here


    RIP LIEUTENANT COMMANDER AIRIAM 2.5
    SHE FLEW TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN

    Perhaps they’ll also do an episode featuring that ape like character with that interactive helmet next.

    The what now? For all we know that's just a regular crewman with a helmet on. Where do you see any ape elements? :confused:

    aren't we all ape-like?

    Do you think @USS Excelsior was talking about the general ape-like characteristics every human being possesses? :confused:

    I can't look into their brain. at least not without physical contact.

    Maybe you can hypothesize: Why would @USS Excelsior feel the need to specifically reference the ape-like nature of someone if they are talking about the ape-like features everyone possesses? Maybe because they are talking about something beyond the natural similarities of human beings to apes? ;)

    likely and possible. it is also possible, that @USS Excelsior posseses no such features itself for various reasons such as otherworldly heritage or the lack of a mortal body due to achieving a higher spiritual level. and while such things are very unlikely, I simply do not have enough data about @USS Excelsior to rule that out completely.

    It was a tiny character.

    Cheesman's comments here pretty much put the kibosh on the idea that her character is "coming back" in any way this season. I mean, it would be one thing to play it close to her vest if she knew it was the fact. But she wouldn't speculate about being resurrected in the future if she actually was resurrected later in the season.

    She could be acting under orders. ;)

    What on earth are you even talking about? :confused:

    This is even more confusing. Whenever we see that character with the helmet (like here in ”If Memory Serves“), they look like a regular sized person, not ”tiny“. And even if they were tiny, why would that make them ”ape-like“?

    Next episode will feature the smaller characters while Pike is interviewing for Airiam's replacement. The helmet character will be there, looking particularly ape-like, and at one point Linus takes off their helmet, wiggles their enormous ears and sprays water in their face. Pike: "The clown can stay, but the Ferengi in the gorilla suit has to go."

    There are background characters on the Discovery that have worn the helmet though. I think I saw one last week working on something in the corridor.

    We've seen that helmet on the Shenzhou, the De Milo (in The Escape Artist), and this season only, on the Discovery. It could be Narwani all three times, or more likely, just wearable tech by multiple officers.

    ape doesn't come to mind. Collision with a high tech toaster yes.

    Why not? If it's a plot point the writers and producers don't want to let out of the bag until after it airs:
    IE Merium IS the "Red Angel"
    Why would she 'spoil'/'tease' that in any way in interviews given prior to that aspect being revealed to the viewing?
