    I'm trying to do the opposite, I'm trying to simplify things and make things more consistent & easily readible.

    Usually it's not just one person who comes up with a idea. It's a large group of people.
    Groups like ISO take a wide array of input and come to a group consensus between experts before standardization.

    Maybe they are all on the pay check of someone with a whim then? :shrug:

    I hope that this group is actually made up of scientists and mathematicians though!

    Highly doubtful by that point in time of Earth.

    It should be.

    The best stardate system I've seen so far in Trek was the one FASA came up with, which was easily convertible to Terran dates. Until the Starflight Chronology dropped a temporal bomb in their calculations. Some Trek timeline sites use the FASA system but convert to Chronology dates to this day.

    Think you’re mixing things up here. The Spaceflight Chronology’s years matched those in FASA. FASA continued that calendar (with the addition of Reference Stardates based on it) — until onscreen canon definitively showed that the years were different. (That would probably be when TNG established Season One/“The Neutral Zone” as being in 2364. Since at the time they were saying it was 78 years since Kirk’s time and the Kirk movies were then ongoing, that put most of the movies in the 2280s — whereas the Chronology/FASA calendar would have had them in the 2210s through 2220s.)

    Well, I know next to nothing about all the back story, canon and integral Star Trek ideas that most of you discuss - so I’m just enjoying the show :)

    It’s much better than Discovery and 100x better than Picard. Just an interesting bunch of characters with some Star Trek-y stories and cool visuals.

    I’m happy :)

    Oh, so her dark secret is going to explain the hair?

    What do you think of the system I suggested? Years of 333 days of 3 stardates (shifts) of 10 hours (0.1 SD per hour) each, with a leap day every 3 years. It kind-of fits the franchise so far, except for the 30 hours a day thing. Otherwise you have to make it 24 hours but then the 0.X stardates gets a bit wonky.

    Rated 7.

    Who or what were those storm aliens were never revealed. Neither they had any substantial contribution to the plot. Yes, they saved Pike and Spock, but that entire sequence could have beem removed without impacting the story. I don't like such loose ends which seem to exist just for effect.

    I like the show fine but I admit I prefer Picard and Lower Decks.

    Enjoyable episode, good twist about Number one and at last a TV show recognises that (a lot of) black women wrap their hair at night lol

    The creatures were the remains of those Illyrians who hadn't "de-engineered" themselves and therefore could adapt to the disease and the storm. The fire effect used to represent them resembled the effect that appeared on Una's skin when her system repelled the disease.

    The effect also reminds me a little of the Pah-Wraiths of Bajor.

    I think they all deengineered themselves. If they hadn't, they would have been fine. They're "ghosts" and would have been what the crew became.

    In a way they went in the opposite direction of noncorporeal life-forms like the Organians. They evolved into beings of energy. The Illyrians devolved and lost their bodies by pure accident.

    glad I’m not the only one: I have to go back and turn on subtitles for most of his lines.

    I had a similar issue (but not this bad) with Gray in discovery season 3. Interestingly I didn’t in season 4.

    I understand M'Benga's dialogue, generally.

    Honestly, while I'm loving Dr. M'Benga's character thus far - I really want more spotlight on Nurse Chapel. She has the witty aura, which reminds me of both Dr. Bashir and Dr. McCoy. So if we do see the current CMO's departure before the show concludes, Im hoping that Chapel takes the reigns!
