    We were kind of yelling at the TV over here "arent they concerned about Nhan?" If I am Nhan, there's a few folks from Captain on down that aren't getting a Christmas card this year.

    Yeah, things are going to be a bit awkward next week when Nhan is back on the ship, now that she knows no one cares about her dying and all.

    Don't worry guys, Control will survive the season, as Captain Kirk specifically reports to Starfleet Control in "Tomorrow is Yesterday".

    To be fair, Nhan still had one tube to breathe through. I have a cold right now, and sometimes I don't think I have a nostril to breathe through at all. Makes eating a lot of "fun" when you can't breath through your nose.

    You need to go back and watch TOS because:

    - Kirk was 'killed' three times: TOS S2 "Amok Time" and S3 "The Enterprise Incident" and S3 "The Tholian Web"
    - McCoy was killed in TOS S1 "Shore Leave"
    - Mr. Scot was killed by the NOMAD probe in TOS S2 "The Changeling"

    (Yes, they all came back, but hey, I think:
    Ariam is the Red Angel; so she'll be back too ;)

    I enjoyed that. They did a good job of making Airiam's death hit me right in the feels.

    I've had year round seasonal allergies since I was 5, breathing through ones nose and eating at the same time is overrated...
    ... and I've made it to 60 without having to do both at the same time.

    She only lost half of her rebreather.
    As for the helmet, my guess would be that getting smashed up against a wall at full force against the back of the suit, most likely damaged the helmet inner-workings.

    He's already moved on to Post-Spock stuff like In Search of. i am looking forwards to his reboot of Three Men and a Baby, though.

    Still seems like making that cool ironman helmet thing close would solve the issue in a jiffy. Honestly I dont know they even took their helmets off. They seem comfortable enough, and if you have a station whose eclss has already been used to kill a few other people I'd be all for keeping it on.

    The show had some good parts but as a whole...meh. I guess my main issue is that...Airiam died...so what.

    Maybe if she had been more developed as a character, she had been given more than a super vague backstory, etc... there would be more impact.

    It would be like killing off Mr. Kyle on TOS. It stinks but **shrug**

    The scene at the airlock was really well done though.

    The Spock/Burnham stuff was dynamite. Especially when Spock got pissed.

    Loved Cornwell telling Pike that he and the Discoprise were the best of Starfleet, even if it was a slap at Disco and her crew. But it also makes me wonder. Was Discoprise the only ship left out of the war or did they leave all (13?) Constitution class ships out?

    The Tilly/Cornwell scene should have been cut.

    This one goes low for me at a 5.

    Does he wrap up his career releasing a photobook of naked zaftig women?

    Maybe they needed to save Oxygen, or whatever the hell Nhan is breathing.

    With all the evasive maneuvers being recited, I felt like Sir Patrick should drop by and deliver one of his own! Completely useless part of the show, really as was the connect-the-dots sequence of the Airiam takeover, which (IMO) was botched... no clarity between possessed and not, no realization. A character so intriguing--Data-like--yet UNDEVELOPED. Could'a shoud'a would'a, I guess. This is an episode that given a proper backstory and less bombastic execution might have merited a 10. But I'm going 8 mainly because of (sometimes hammy) character moments, not because of a loss of a character we didn't even know.

    Like in the Naked Time where the crewman takes off his protective glove and conspicuously handles the frozen furniture among all the bodies. :lol:

    "Balance of Terror". Robert Tomlinson died. Angela Martine was in grief. Sometimes all you need is one episode to develop a character. Beyond the fact they were getting married, how much did we know about them? Not much. How much did we see them? Just enough for the purposes of the episode. But did we still feel for them at the end of the episode? Yes we did.

    Ariam was a Thomalson. Not a Kyle.

    Trying to rewatch for a scene or two now and CBS has decided to hit me up for every commercial I missed earlier. :mad:

    Nahn was a guest on the ship. Airiam was a crew member who went through the Klingon War and MU with these people. They were her friends. All life is valuable, but in the moment the crew’s tears were for their friend.
