    When we finally get to see it, you should add the Section-31 ship to that lovely poster.

    According to IMDB, the sole writer of this episode is Andrew Colville (previously executive producer and writer on Turn, Boomtown, Mad Men, and The 4400). It'll be interesting to see how his first Star Trek script turns out. Also, according to IMDB, he also co-wrote the episode next week.

    And the impossible has happened and Herc at AICN actually likes this episode: http://www.aintitcool.com/node/81660

    Yeah, I can't figure out if he's being honest or not.

    According to that AICN review, the whole Klingons shaving during war is brought up in dialogue this episode, so they’re not leaving it as just ambiguous BTS info.

    Maybe he likes it because he thinks people will hate it.

    This is the one I'm most anxious about.

    I really, really liked the previous two episodes doing the Star Trek stuff again. This one is the return of the two major things I hated most about the first season: The new Klingons, and the MU plotline.

    On the one hand, I really liked what we saw about the S2 Klingons so far - having hair again really does them a big favour. Still dreading the return of MU Georgiou though. And both of these elements were so big during the first season, they had to return to the show at some point, they were too important to just be dropped. And coming off the previous two episodes really gives me hope they get them "right" this time. We'll see.

    If they do give us an in-universe explanation for the S1 lack of hair v. S2 hair (and I think they will), I want that explanation to be a quick sentence or two, then just put it behind them and move forward.

    Somebody in another thread said that they read somewhere that this is what happens.

    Weird that the review has been removed now. Sounds like Section 31 got to AICN.

    As if they're not allowed to say anything positive.

    Reviewer: Do I give a negative or positive review?
    AICN: Was it made before or after 1994?
    Reviewer: After.
    AICN: Give it a negative review.
    Reviewer: But I kind of liked it...
    AICN: Give it a negative review.
    Reviewer: Okay.
