    I've already covered this, your absurd assumptions about how I view entertainment notwithstanding. You seem awfully determined to "prove" my opinion about one episode of an old TV show is wrong. Get over it.

    Well of course to ME :rolleyes: Surely if people can state that if something is good in absolute terms without needing to qualify that it's their opinion without being challenged then others should be equally as entitled to say otherwise.

    Agreed he may "ghost" her by having any memories of affection erased. Remember he's had ONE nervous breakdown. He fears T"Pring because she can have him killed so he has to please her. A full on affair with Chapel could happen, but I hope only after Spock severs ties with T"pring for a valid reason. Yet Spock fears himself and after another breakdown he concludes he must be rid of these associations and attachments and ghosts Chapel and has no memory of any fondness for her. It's mean.

    Finally watched this one and with that I have seen all of SNW Season 1. An episode that plays up on Alien, Aliens and Predator all at the same time. Good stuff and definitely much stronger than the one that came before it.

    That's two episodes this season that have veered into horror territory. I hope next season we get a few more episodes along the lines of Spock Amok. I hope next season we actually find out something about Ortegas.

    It's a shame about Hemmer.

    I think it's a strong season overall. It's definitely easy to watch. I went ahead and watched the finale before 7,8 or 9 and it's still perfectly easy to understand what's going on. It's a good show, but for me at this point it's good, not great. But then I have a high bar for great.

    Fun but the homage to aliens and predator were a little too on the nose. I don't mind if there are different sub-species of Gorn in the same way I'd be fine if there were different aliens and sub-species in the Klingon and Romulan empires so, even if they want to improve the make-up, I hope we get slow strong gorn at some point. I am puzzled by a species that can breed within minutes of being born though.

    I don't know why they didn't suggest putting Hemmer in stasis, especially cryo-stasis or the transporter buffer as a temporary measure, or at least explain that Andorian fast metabolism was the problem.

    Most of all, I would have preferred to see them salvage only the saucer, which is designed for atmospheric landings rather than the secondary hull, which isn't. I suppose it doesn't matter so much how much destruction they leave behind on a class L uninhabited world if they use warp or impulse to blast off.

    Best episode of the season yet. Actually felt emotions at the end. Yes, the new Gorn are blatant Alien rip-offs, but I enjoy them. Nice to finally see them!

    Really enjoying how each episode is tonally very different whilst the character threads help to tie it all together. A fun riff on Aliens, done well. I feel they've really doubled down on making sure we understand and empathise with the characters in this show. To lose Hemmer and have La'an head out on her own - painful stuff.

    Bruce Horak's contract ended at the ninth episode so unless they were going to have him go off to Starfleet Academy to teach engineering like DSC had Tilly transfer to the 32nd century Academy to become an instructor then this was going to be his swan song. I'm sad to see him go so early but hey, if you've gotta die in Trek there are a million worse ways to do so.

    If falling out the back end of a starship with your chest full of alien creatures is one of the better ways to go, I'm surprised anyone joins Starfleet at all! j/k

    The one thing I don't get in all of this is Samuel Kirk. He's the first to blunder into danger, freak out and seems way too informal and yet Pike is like 'Oh he's the man you want on your team in a crisis, a real card'...is he? iiis he?! I couldn't put my finger on it at first, but he reminds me of the kind of work colleague, who perhaps isn't that great at what they do, but they're drinking chums with the boss and so they get away with e v e r y t h i n g. If anyone needed to fall out the back end of a starship... :P

    Actually, from what I understand is Contracting and because he's going to be playing other character(s) in season 2. They just decided when conceiving the show that they wanted to have a character that was killed in the line of duty; but they didn't just want to make it a one-off guest star type of situation when they did so. They wanted the death to convey some sense of real loss by allowing the audience to get to know the character before they killed the character.

    Wait, a death that means something?

    That's just so crazy it just might work.

    He deserved better than to die on a frozen wasteland.

    What? Even he stated it "...feels like home...", aka Andoria.
