    No - she won't want that level of responsibility - she'll hand that title off to Booker, or the Starbase Commander she first met. ;)

    In that case, I really hope that there actually will be an election, she'll be running against Georgiou, and we will get to follow the entire campaign, complete with debates, town halls and Burnham-trademarked speeches at various iconic Trek locations. Tilly could volunteer to be her campaign manager, because there's no way that would go wrong. Let an entire season be about nothing but that :lol:

    If they're going back to Earth next episode, I wonder if we'll get a peek outside the walls of Starfleet Command? Maybe we'll get to see a 32nd century winery or soul food restaurant?

    I don't think I even said the rating I gave this episode. I'll give it an 8.

    Would've been a 7, but the Discovery crash and the Georgiou/Zareh fight bring it up. This is a visual medium and DSC always makes good use of it. Location footage in particular is always something this series excels at.

    The western plot gets talked about a lot; but the portions on Discovery, when the ship is trapped underneath the parasitic ice, feel like a Disaster Movie. You could've had an episode with just that and really upped the tension.

    Giving it an 8 also. I have a feeling there are some great things to come.

    Well, we always have to figure a fudge factor with the UT since translated characters can be seen to be speaking the translated language. What we see on screen can't be real in-universe.

    Maybe Saru and Tilly had their translators off because everyone had been speaking English until then? Not actually using a UT at the moment could explain the other examples too.

    Love that it's the 32nd century and were still afraid to put a woman up for president

    What makes you think that the Federation has an American political system with a vice-president and perhaps an electoral college?

    It's only the 21st now and I'm proudly voting for Jo Jorgensen. So, we're not all afraid...

    Heh ... I heard she got bit by a bat back in August.

    Might we finally get a Vampire for President?
