    Michael Burnham assaulting the section 31 officer is the moment I gave up, I can't watch this anymore

    So your very first post at the TrekBBS is a nonsense complaint?

    BTW, welcome to the TrekBBS.

    I gave up when Spock assaulted his Captain. And then I gave up again when he assaulted his Captain for a second time. By the third time I was gone for good.

    ???

    I'm a huge fan of Section 31 but I love that scene. Why would this of all things make you want to stop watching? There are plenty of "better" moments to choose from... so I think you don't actually believe what you're saying and just want a reaction.

    His father was a Section 31 officer and was punched to death on the OP's birthday.

    It says "Star Trek" on the box; it's "Star Trek."

    Something can be "Star Trek" and not be good.* It's a brand.

    *This late in the day, in fact, that's the way to bet.

    I have nothing to add, really. I just love this scene.

    Kirk's wanted to beat the tar out of some bozo or other ever since the academy.

    You're at least 23 years too late for that. Unless there's some key difference between a distraught Burnham decking Leland and a furious Worf punching the Klingon lawyer in his trial in Rules of Engagement that I'm not seeing.

    And if you're scandalized by a Section 31 operative being punched by one of our heroes, you'll faint when you see what they do to one in Extreme Measures.

    I'm assuming the point is that Burnham attacked a superior officer, but I'm not sure how the chain of command works with this new Section 31 approach.

    She's more like Spock, than I thought.

    Well, if Michael’s in the brig, who's going to save every sentient lifeform in the galaxy?
