Final saw this, loved most of it but the ending: M’benga really decided to trust into an alien entity that could have been manipulating him all the time? Also, how do they know that it just “formed itself”? Wouldn’t it be more probable that it evolved from a previous corporeal life form, just like the countless energy entities in previous Trek? anyway, everyone seemed to have great fun and the set dressings were awesome. 8, perhaps a bit less but let’s go by 8. And I FINALLY can understand M’benga when he talks! No idea what they did, but his pronunciation is much less incomprehensible now.
