    Sounds like another fun and exploration themed episode! Discovery really lives up to its name doesn’t it?

    By the time the lamb meets the butcher's knife, it cries not, for it is already dead.

    That title reminds me of a line in a Chris Farley movie about a butcher where he... butchered the analogy...

    Too bad the show doesn't actually feel like the artwork above.

    Wasn't that line something like "Of course, I can get a hell of a good look at a T-Bone steak by sticking my head up a bull's ass, but I'd rather take the butcher's word for it." It's been a while since i've seen that movie.

    We're discovering how long fans will root for a lead who murders for revenge at the cost of thousands and possibly millions of lives.

    (I'm joking -- sorta)

    I know what the shortest title is. It was Voyager's "Q2" until Enterprise beat it with E2(e squared)

    I'm seriously trying to be excited for tonight's episode. My expectations for it are super low, I think the chances of this being an exploration episode are zilch, but I'm hoping that the lights are going to be finally turned on, on the ship.

    Decided to wait until tomorrow, or sometime this week to watch. Just not feeling it tonight.

    Looks like we got the marble mouths in the show tonight, according to the cast listing on IMDB.
