Since Carl was reading tomorrow's newspaper, does that imply that Early Edition is part of the Star Trek universe? This actually might have been one of my favorite episodes of the season, partly because I liked seeing how Georgiou has softened, and also because it was strangely comforting to be back in the Mirror Universe. As excited as I was to see what the 32nd century had in store, there's something disquieting about being thrust into such a distant and unfamiliar time period. I have been enjoying season three overall, but it's probably made me feel sort of like how the Discovery crew felt about being cut off from everything they knew. There was also something reassuringly old school Star Trek about Carl, who was obviously reminiscent of Q, not to mention various other characters, god-like and otherwise, that the Enterprise crew would encounter who incongruously seemed like they could have been plucked out of Earth's past, whether it was Trelane or the Iotians or Abraham Lincoln, etc.
