    I really wanna see Discovery go through a season long arc where she gets damaged like Enterprise or Voyager in Year of Hell I love episodes like that when the crew is in dire straits

    Season 1.5 was pretty dire, being as they're in the middle of a war.

    Of course, wherever they are now might be a worse situation.

    Lorca discovers that in addition to the combat damage to his eyes, he has developed inexplicable callouses on the thumb, index ,and middle fingers of his right hand. Very strange.

    Lorca's new catchphrase: "That ain't workin', that's the way you do it".

    God bless everyone for spelling "straits" correctly, btw. If I had a quatloo for every time I've had to read "dire straights" . . . . .

    Most straight guys I've run into were pretty dire.

    There's already been that - scientific discovery is about more than going to new places. Although now they have done that, too.

    Yeah but their attitude toward the new and unknown is strictly utilitarian. No wonder, just 'How can we use or enslave this creature to our benefit'.

    Discovery is also more than just finding something new that is then be used to fight the Klingons. Where have we seen, so far, discovery for its own sake? If it should serve the needs of the story, then the story itself should be about discovery. Love the show, but I'm not seeing this aspect so far.

    Seriously, since in the first episode we see Georgiou and Burnham visiting a new planet and helping a heretofore unknown species survive for no other (apparent) reason than humanitarianism.

    I'm talking about Lorca, the Shenzou was your standard humanitarian Starfleet vessel.
