    I just noticed DISCO is available on Xfinity Stream without needing CBS All Access. Season 3 isn't listed yet, and I still have to buy season 2, but season 1 is free to watch.
    Having some fun playing catch up when I can Did anyone else think "Merida" seeing Tilly with her hair down? :D

    Can I skip the Mirror universe episodes without missing any of the story?

    Nope, they are integral to the story.

    A nice little VFX reel of scenes from 'That hope is you pt 2'. Anyone else love the shot of Discovery and the Viridian being chased by the Federation fleet?

    So it's assumed that Tilly will be Michael's Number One?

    Or will they bring in someone new? Maybe someone from the 32nd century who would have more insight on things?

    EDIT:
    Actually, I guess Saru is in the background in uniform in the season 4 teaser, so most likely it will be him.



    And just to add this too...

    I hope Saru is Michael's Number One. To my mind he's more deserving than any other character.

    I'm quite happy today. TrekCore ran a giveaway for the third season's Blu-ray release and I'm one of the winners.

    I virtually never win this stuff!

    I think Saru might be working with Vance and may just be getting ferried around by Michael on some sort of diplomatic mission.

    This is news? Huh, thought that was published pretty regularly when Discovery was first announced.

    Yeah, the spore drive was inspired by his theory that all mushrooms are connected underground by mycelial roots or something like that.

    The writers just sci-fied it up. The roots became subspace strings connecting space mushrooms that the ship could travel through.

    Both of which, IMO, are COOL.

    That was Bryan Fuller's original concept.

    In the original concept by Bryan Fuller, Discovery had no magic spore drive.
    The mycelium fungus was about terraforming, not space travel.
