    This is my opinion as well. I wouldn't say I'm anti-Discovery. Some of the earlier episodes this season were quite good. But the season fell off a cliff after the MU two partner and this finale was just awful. Really bad.

    She is that huge, but can fit inside a shuttlebay on the Emerald Chain ship?

    From the internal FXs she could probably fit the enterprise inside her.

    Is a ship containing the Viridian containing the Discovery containing the Enterprise the USS Matrioska?

    I have a theory that based on the relative size of Discovery's turboshafts to the Viridian, that the Viridian was actually a massive planet sized ship housing billions of people and that the entire population of the Emerald Chain was on that ship. So when Burnham destroyed it, she actually wiped out the entire Chain in one swoop. The fact that she was the one narrating at the end of the episode was all the more suspicious. She said the Chain fell apart because Oyssra was gone but I think it was a clever deflection to hide that it was really her wiping out an entire civilization.

    Only when he's the ECH. The EMH has taken the Hippocratic oath, but the ECH can slaughter with impunity.

    What Doctor then? Dr. Who? Ohh, wait, you must be talking about Beverly Crusher, she did murder that space ghost who lived in a candle that one time.

    Doctor Who is the correct answers. Other answers we would have accepted is Phlox.

    i rewatched Dear Doctor (as part of my first rewatch since enterprise was on the air) the other week...I wouldn’t be lying if I said I disagree completely with the ultimate decision they took.

    That's probably only because you have a basic understanding of how evolution actually works.

    I apologize if I misunderstood. It was not clear.

    A solid 9, coming in as the 3rd longest Trek franchise episode ever, there's plenty of wrap up packed in to the episode.

    I feel satisfied with season 3 in general. My only qualm is I had hoped they would have spent more time on 32nd century Starfleet.

    It is quintessentially "TNG" for them to tie up the "Burn" as an emotional child that lost his mother rather than some "Big Bad", and season 3 was the most TNG-like season of Trek since Voyager. Michael Piller would be happy.

    My season rankings: 2, 1, 3.

    not bad overall, the cause of the burn doesn't bother me
    I thought the detached nacelles was one of the dumbest things ever, then they did the turbolift thing
