    Spock is finally here. Before his arrival, I was skeptical of Ethan Peck but having seen him in action, I'll say that I liked what I saw. He doesn't channel Leonard Nimoy but instead, has his own take on Spock and plays it well. If there were any hype, he'd live up to it. I also noticed that he's pretty tall. Hopefully the show will bridge the gap with TOS and show us how Spock got shorter. Okay, it seems that Peck is just as tall as Nimoy. Never saw the original Spock as being tall.

    This episode should touch on what happened to Airiam after she was infected with a computer virus a few episodes back. This has been watercooler talk for weeks and hopefully we'll get some good answers tonight. How does it connect with the Red Angel? Does it have anything to do with Section 31 or that ultimate computer or theirs? Brainiac? No? Stay tuned.

    We know very little about Airiam, so hopefully we'll get some more background on her as well. What we do know is that she was played by two different actresses (Sara Mitich in season 1 and Hannah Cheesman in season 2) and is either an augmented human or an augmented alien depending on who you ask. Why is she augmented with all sorts of mechanical parts? An injury? An interest in personal enhancement? Something else? Hopefully we'll get some answers there too. In the meantime, watch Sara Mitich get transformed into Airiam in this clip.

    Jeffrey Hunter and Leonard Nimoy were both listed at 6'.

    Anson Mount and Ethan Peck are both listed at 6' 1".

    This is the first episode written by Michelle Paradise. She inpressed them enough to let her co-write the last 2 episodes of the season, and then made her co-showrunner for the third season.

    Directed by Jonathan Frakes.

    Time for my weekly Canadian TV timeslot update:

    Tonight's episode runs from 8 PM - 9:10 PM with commercials. This is the same as last week so probably a similarly lengthy episode.

    Could Project Daedalus be the Section-31 code name of the Red Angel suit?

    Or is it the name of the Section-31 space station we'll see tonight?

    I've been thinking about that as a scenario too. It makes some sense. Discovery finds the Red Angel suit onboard the abandoned Section 31 ship, and then Burnham (or someone else) puts it on.

    The one problem with this scenario is I'm pretty sure that even in scenes where Section 31 is talking among themselves, they're treating the Red Angel as if it's a mystery. If they built the suit, they should know already what it is, shouldn't they?

    Unless they are a Section 31 from under someone else's bed. ;)

    I think the Red Angel storyline will be a major factor in this episode considering the title of next week's episode. I predict Burnham will put the suit on or in some other way they will make it seem like Burnham is the Red Angel this episode but in a future episode it will be revealed to be someone else.

    Or Leland knows about it and is not discussing it with others.

    What if Control is the thing in charge at the Section-31 starbase and has secret projects running there that include the suit?

    Perhaps Airiam isn't actually the villain in tonight's episode, but is in fact, the one that is trying to eliminate who or whatever Control is.

    Daedalus lost his wings, so maybe the Red Angel also crashes and burns.

    Icarus lost his wings. Daedalus was perfectly fine (other than the whole losing his son thing).

    Not related to Vanessa Paradis, as it turns out. I'm disappointed!
