The (in)famous Bilbo Baggins music video shows Nimoy in his Spock coiffure
It was a hairstyle that was popular in the 1960's because of the Beatles.
It just hit me...
Since, in the alternate BoT, Sam Kirk is still in Starfleet, it would seem that whatever causes Sam to retire to civilian life (as shown in "Operation: Annihilate!") is somehow connected to Pike. I wonder if SNW will ever explain this.
Perhaps Pike moving on to "Fleet Captain" made Sam reconsider life in Starfleet. Or maybe Sam is still in Starfleet at the time of O:A.
Yeah, either one works. I doubt the writers put much more thought into it other than the fact that they wanted to have Jim and Sam share a scene together.
Doesn't look like it.
Sam could have been off duty when he died (which would explain why he's not in uniform) but Deneva did not appear to be a Starfleet outpost.
Sam was the outpost.
(stage whisper: It's O:A!)
More like O! O! O! O!Aaaaaayyyyyy!
Is the series FINALLY through with exploring Pike's future? I hope so, because it feels to me that the franchise has been beating a dead horse since Season 2 of "Discovery".
This episode felt like an old one from "Star Trek". Which again, makes me wish the franchise could have been more original with this series.
It's something the franchise has never explored before.
He kind of sort of needs to deal with it. So, hopefully not done yet.
Mount has indicated that Pike's destiny is less of a concern for him going forward.
Kind of late to the party on this episode. I will give it a solid 6/10.
1. the episode kind of felt dry.
2. Bad acting from paul wesley as kirk who is miscast
3. Not very original
I think it was a bad idea to have two back to back SNW episode not be original. Episode 9 ripped of Aliens. Episode 10 took a lot of balance of terror.
SNW is hardly now a fresh show.
It was two amazing episodes. It's still fresh.
"Fresh" stopped having meaning in Trek about, oh, thirty years ago.
Somewhere around episode 2 of TNG?
Considering Star Trek itself was completely patterned on the 1956 film Forbidden Planet, and was borrowing plots and story lines from previous genre TV shows like The Outer Limits, The Twilight Zone and previous low budget Sci-Fi series like Space Patrol and even Captain Video, it's 'freshness' has been negligible since 1966.
That said, it's always been entertaining; and that's something that hasn't changed throughout its entire 57 years of being on the air at all times somewhere in the world
Actually, it is.
