The chairs, the railings, the tactical scope! So far, so good IMO
I love Pike standing up to the Klingons and them respecting him for it.
So instead of blowing up, the ship jumps a 1000 years into the future right?
The problem is that I'd be so much more interested in that that I might lose all interest in Discovery.
It was nice to see Jett get something meaty to do this week, but guilt tripping Culber struck me as odd. The man died and was reconstituted, but she's laying the burden on him and not Stamets for his myopic response? I get that her wife died, but can no one on this show have empathy for poor Culber?
I did like Culber's very TOS spritz bottle.
Are they going to change the name of the show in Season 3, like they kinda did with Enterprise? It will be interesting to see how Discovery herself survives the next two episodes.
Well, technically, it didn't fail because it never even aired. It's not as though audiences rejected it back in the 1960s, only some studio executives. And, of course, that was before Star Trek became a phenomenon. It's a whole new world with a new audience and new expectations.
Man, that bridge is so pretty! The lighting across the rim of the ceiling reminds me a bit of the Enterprise-A bridge in Star Trek VI.
The background music while Pike and the Klingon Elder talk about the Time Crystals as they walk reminds me of Prometheus.
Yup - Discovery's crew will be integrated with the Enterprise's and since the titular ship will be missing in action, the show will be renamed Star Trek.
In that case, "Discovery" has nothing to worry about.
I would be fine with that.
They have made Pike into the Finest damned Captain the show has ever had. He knew his fate and sealed it for the greater good.
I also do not think they are going to end up blowing the ship.
Discovery isn't just the name of the ship.
NOW THAT'S A KLINGON SHIP!!!
I liked that the Timekeeper's demand of Pike echoed the price demanded by the Talosians, who will ultimately be his savior, sorta.
Burnham's latest near insubordination, to Pike at the beginning for no real reason, struck me as offputting. Her perpetual inability to check her emotions, and the attitude, is convincing me she has no place in the command hierarchy.
Control would ROFLSTOMP the Borg.
I like the more mystical side of Borath. For some reason, I get a Dark Crystal vibe.
And, for the record: there is only one live-action action show that should ever be called Star Trek with nothing else in the title after it. And it ran from 1966 to 1969. Everything other series is Star Trek: Sub-Title.
