You're so right!!! WORST SHOW EVAR!!!1!
Airiam, that cybergirl on the bridge, has the lead in a new time-travel movie, coming out soon.
We have some interesting looking aliens on the ship, full of story potential, that we do need to investigate.
Still not as bad as the beacon in the first episode - which apparently just gave out very bright light - being visible from many light years away instantaneously.
Which would require those ships to time travel back to the battle of the binary stars, if the signal took twenty to 50 years to reach the notice of some houses living 20 to 50 light years away.
They said in the episode that it wasn't only viable light being given off IIRC.
Remember that whatever it was, it was also effecting the Shenzhou's systems.
Obviously the Beacon of Kahless, was a subspace beacon, we know this, however... Was all that light necessary, an unavoidable biproduct or purely decorative?
According to dialog in the episode it's an "electromagnetic sub-space wave form".
But didn't Sarek specifically refer to it as "a new star in the sky?" That would imply having seen it visually, not just having it detected via subspace.
Poetic license? And aren't stars "visible" with many techniques?
Well it may have mimicked a star on ship sensors.
Others have covered the in-episode dialog that explains this, but I will also point out Star Trek VI's explosion of Praxis. Which would never realistically threaten anyone outside of the Qo'nos system, but in-dialog they too indicate that it somehow initiated a subspace wavefront. So Discovery is fudging nothing that hasn't been fudged before.
1. If the beacon is mobile, how does anyone know where to look for it?
2. If the beacon's wave moves like a radio wave, continue travelling for thousands of years (but unlike a radio wave) without degrading, how are the klingons (not that they have any onus to) keep a lid on the larger universe to the prewarp civilizations out there?
Here's a thought. What happened to Lorca between the "three lights" scene and the time he was dumped back in his cell? Ash Tyler isn't the only one with gaps in his experience. Hmmm.
L'Rell might be carrying Voq's baby, Ash's baby, Mudd's baby and Lorca's baby.
Yes, Ash and Voq are the same person, but if their sperms are constructed from very different testes, then Ash's sperm would be incompletely Klingon, unlike Voq's sperms which remain Klingon.
Brotha from another motha--sista from another mista!
This thread suddenly got very, very weird and disturbing.
Well done, guys.
Admiral Doctor Katrina Cornwall, if she is the big cheese, is a

more so than just ships and soldiers blowing #### up targets of opportunity.
He said 'reports' of a new star, which doesn't imply having seen it. It suggests someone registered it and told him. Bloody quickly, I'll grant, but then he was also stood right by his holophone when Burnham rung, so he's not a dude to waste time.
I just did a quick look for threads fit the previous episodes and noticed that so far this one had the greatest number if posts by the time it was unpinned.
Perhaps that in itself is a good indication on the popularity of the episode in itself, grading aside.
I remember hearing Jason Isaacs saying in interviews that he hoped to see fans beating themselves and each other up on the forums about the show (or words to that effect)... I think he's definitely getting his wish.
