    Well, if the weapons hadn't been hidden under his desk, he would have been dead, I guess. ;-)

    I think he used one though in the big fight and didn't have a moment afterward to ask, "How did that holstered weapon get under my wooden desk?". He must have known it was there. And there was another hidden gun, too. There were multiple hidden guns in that scene and he wasn't surprised by them. So either he hid them or the Tal Shiar servants did and he's fine with it. Maybe they're all paranoid living on 24th century Earth on a wine vineyard.

    I'd be a little more tolerant of this if the Tal Shiar said, "We're really concerned about the Zhat Vash finding you and think we should take some extra precautions to safe guard the home. Also, where's Number One?" but instead we get random hidden weapons that show up out of nowhere to save the day.

    It's like living with a stoner and then finding his hidden stashes of weed. You're not surprised they are there, you appreciated it if you need it and you accept that this is part of who they are.

    I liked it. Better than I liked "Maps and Legends." Interesting, the Romulan "suicide with extreme prejudice" pill makes another appearance.

    I didn't recognize Hugh even after his name came up. That, even though I was expecting him to turn up.

    The stuff with the Romulan Culture gets explored more in the rest of the episodes. Hugh has a good storyline too.

    Then you'll have people complaining, "What's with all the Romulan stuff? BOOOORING! :rolleyes: "

    There's just no pleasing people. :(

    true but i still think it would have been more interesting than what we got which i felt was too similar to discovery season 2
