    Do Gorn eat people? Maybe they mistook Rutherford for the reception dinner.

    Me, I'm waiting for an opportunity to use "You may go un-eeled...for now." in an official capacity.

    It was an OK episode for me, but not among the best ones.

    The Rutherford and tendi sections were all quite hilarious, though, I’m left wondering were the true “cleaner” ended up and how Rutherford got to the gorn wedding.

    Well, since McCoy's dialogue in Into Darkness suggests that the Gorn give birth like mammals rather than laying eggs the way normal reptiles would, I suppose it's possible they could have other mammalian characteristics, such as mammaries.

    I get it. I can accept the fact that Kryptonians look exactly like us, and yet, for whatever reason, I have a harder time suspending my disbelief for Krypto the Super Dog.

    I gave it an 8. better than last week.

    - Really liked the whole Rutherford Implant reboot sequence front to back.

    - Liked that fact that if you try and follow what's going on, theyh decided to steal an old Romulan BoP from a Starfleet ship museum.:rofl:

    - Liked the Catian Doctor getting on the wrong ship and thinking it was a parallel universe because aspects of that crew DID look similar to the crew of the Ceritos.

    As for the Q cameo - IDK didn't sound like John De Lancie to me, but I guess it was.

    I hadn't been rating the episodes lately because in my mind I had no idea what a 10 for Lower Decks looked like. Now that I have my bearings, my ratings for the episodes thus far are:

    "Second Contact" --> 7
    "Envoys" --> 8
    "Temporal Edict" --> 7
    "Moist Vessel" --> 9
    "Cupid's Errant Arrow" --> 7
    "Terminal Provocations" --> 6
    "Much Ado About Boimler" --> 8
    "Veritas" --> 10
    Average (so far) --> 7.75

    Klingons ate humans in discovery. but maybe they are only attacking him for crashing at the wedding biting him but not trying to eat him, dogs bite without intention to eat other dogs

    I hope they show some of the characters speed-walking through the corridors in the pilot episode of the upcoming new series just to tweak the more obstinate fans who insist that LDS is not canon. :lol:

    This was very good, but I appreciated it especially much later, when the whole thing started to come together and the jokes became funnier. For some reason, Romulan causually mentioning he hates Remans and Sub Rosa reference made me quite giggle. Boimler stays to be the least proactive character and thet needs to change.

    I dunno - he seemed pretty proactive about defending his crewmates and senior officers when he thought they were still on trial and about to be put to death in a vat of eels. He had quite an epic monologue there, in the end. :shrug:

    When Captain Freeman beams on the bridge, she's in a crouched position, reminded me of Spock beaming down to Vulcan in ST09.

    I love that it is now the canon on Gorn weddings!

    One of the Gorn is holding a camera.
