Ten Best/Worst things about Star Trek Discovery Season 2 BEST: Captian Pike-Anson Mount delivers a charming, yet commanding rendition Bridge crew have names/get more attention making them seem more like a family Janet Reno-Hiawatha's quick witted/lipped engineer w/deadpan humor severly underused. Klingons have hair Hipster Spock-although Sybok was the only male Vulcan seen out of the mirror universe with facial hair suggesting growing it is an act of rebellion, bearded Spock never looked better. Season finale's episode-long space battle (longest space battle in Trek?) made you feel like you were there. Learning more about Michael's parent's death which was only vaguely intimated in season 1. The touching scene between Dr. Culber and Lt. Stamets as his patient in the season finale. Seeing a relationship between Burnham and Spock instead of just hearing about it. Seeing the inside of Discovery's version of the NCC-1701 Enterprise. Worst: May-Tilly's annoying childhood friend/parasite/hallucination Burnham as a Mary Sue type character Poorly written science fiction/Treknobabble-I was hoping for an improvement over season 1, but it didn't happen. Section 31-instead of being the secretive subversive group it was in DS9, it seems to work out in the open in tadem with, or over-seeing the Federation, in a rather complicated relationship, is Section 31 or Starfleet command the real authority in the Federation? Pike continually changing his mind in deference to Michael Burnham. Sylvia Tilly-seemed even more of an overly-talkative, emotional child-woman this season than last. I expected a more matured character especially given her admission into the Command traning program, but alas... Lt. Ariam's death-unlike previous deaths in Trek (Dax, Spock, Tasha Yar), Ariam's death had no emotional impact on me since the character was barely known. Ariam also had one of the cooler looking designs among the supporting cast. Timekeeper Klingons, makes as much sense as Klingon timecrystals. Admiral Cornwell's death-seemed unnecessary and unheroic, she just stood there and watched the photon torpedo blow up in her face. LOL. Continued lack of continuity between Discovery and TOS/ENT. Discovery if set 10 years before TOS should have stories and plots that tend toward synching up with TOS and the prime timeline (like ENTERPRISE) not charting its own course. This was done to some degree with the season finale ending, but not enough.
