    I completely missed the mention of duotronics in this episode.

    So did I. I did, however, catch the mention of an "SQL injection". Interesting how today's concept of the structured query language for modern database systems will live on for at least another 2-300 years! :lol:

    10/10. I'm a bit late throwing in my two cents about this episode, and while I haven't managed to read through all 64 pages in this thread, I'm pretty sure I don't have anything particularly new or insightful to add, so I'll try to keep it brief. in short, I loved it. In fact, I slightly surprised myself when I found myself thinking, "I love this show," which I doubt is something I would have thought during season one. I did like the first season, mostly, but if I'm being honest, there was probably also this feeling that I was partly watching it out of a sense of obligation because it has Star Trek in the title. However, I'm now at the point where I can comfortably say that I'm really liking/loving Discovery. When I saw the preview, I had some niggling qualms about the Talosians looking slightly different than they did in TOS, but those thoughts evaporated almost instantly as I got sucked into the story.

    My biggest worry is that people, especially the on-the-fence skeptics, will set this as the new bar, which I'm not sure is at all fair or realistic.

    This was an instant Trek classic. I have no expectation that tonight will compare, nor will I feel that "DISKUVRY IZ TEH SUX UHGAIN" if it fails to do so.

    I hope people are prepared to take it all in stride.

    It doesn't have to be a classic as long as it is entertaining. Something Discovery has been very hit-and-miss on up to this point.

    Oh, I just remembered something I wanted to say before. As soon as Culber was brought back to life a few episodes ago, I've been hoping that the writers would acknowledge the fact that he and Tyler were, in a weird way, kind of alike now, so I was glad that Ash addressed that at the end of their confrontation.

    I totally didn't make this connection until Tyler said it flat out, and I was pretty blown away by it. That was some clever writing.

    When Leiland appeared on the viewscreen, the never-staying-still Disco camerawork was happening on the S31 bridge camera. While I love how Disco is shot, even when Skype is tracking your movement it doesn't look like that.
