Really enjoyed this one, here's my random thoughts...

  • That was a great mix of crazy and FUN.
  • Tig Notaro steals every scene she's in and I want to see much more of her.
  • Absolutely loved the universal translator going wrong and everyone speaking different languages.
  • The conversation about going back to old fashioned screens for communications felt a bit shoe-horned in, but was still appreciated.
  • Number One was interesting, I'm surprised she appeared so briefly.
  • Love any scene where the characters are all discussing things around a table. Feels very Star Trek.
  • The Saru plot became surprisingly emotional, and I thought the scenes between him and Burnham were very strong.
  • Tilly and Stamets singing Space Oddity was gorgeous and delightful.
  • I don't care about the Spock plot at all now, just do more fun stuff like this.

They will never please the Star Trek community, lol. It's like they cry about everything, doesn't matter what they do with this show.

Really going in the right direction, with more classic Star Trek plots, space anomalies, unknown species, and some indications of recovering TOS canon. Also: no boring Klingons and we are now officially "In Search Of Spock" ;-)

More of THIS please and this show might actually become a decent Star Trek series some day!

Minus that anoying "old school" engineer and her exchange with Stamets I liked this episode. I think that conversation, althought it's topic was valid, was a little bit to imposed.

And they are trying now to explain things like how Kirk's Enterprise hadn't all that shiny techy stuff. And my guess is that ultimately they will abandon the whole jump drive and forbid it's use ever again. Which could explain why it never was used later but would still leave an explanation as to why no one ever talked about it.

Saru's story does interest me a lot more now than what happened to Spock. I think it's a bit annoying they dangled Spock in front of the audience like a carrot and it now seems he will be a ghost possibly up to the last (couple ?) episode (s). And it would be nice if they do a follow up to the Sphere and it's possible origins.

In any case, I recognize the effort they are taking.

Wish there was less dialogue & more action.

Saru's backstory was interesting, but they devoted too much time to it in one episode. Too much Tilly, too, and that doesn't look like it's going away anytime soon, unfortunately. I want more Spock- and Pike-related content, but the writers here clearly want to spend more time on their own characters than on legacy ones.

Tearing out the holo communicators. That's a step in the right direction. A few more changes and we may yet get a real Star Trek show.

This was a pretty standard anomaly in space episode. I found the whole thing with the translators to be more annoying than clever. I also find it unlikely that the majority of the crew didn't speak Federation Standard.

There were 2 smaller plotlines running. Tilly and the Slimer in the fungus room and Saru drops his fear dangles. Up until now I was finding the Tilly story interesting. I'm not sure where they lost me this episode.

As for the Saru story, that fell flat for me as well. I have never found him very compelling. For me he barely rates above the rest of the bridge crew who's names I'd have to look up. Losing Saru would have about the same impact as losing Wesley Crusher. I liked mirror Saru better. They should have saved (pickled?) the dangling bits for the Emperor.

In truth I'm not sure why this episode bugged me as much as it did. I probably should have given it a 6.

Some quality emotions are in this episode, I bit you won't hold your tears specially if you are a hardcore fan like me :)
And I am happy that Saru is okay and not dead .

On the other hand, they are finally providing an explanation why the spore drive is not featured in the rest of the star trek series and movies .

I'll take a whole episode where Reno, Linus, and Number One are sent on a shuttle mission together, please. Suddenly, this show is cranking out one solid supporting character after the other.

I love that Pike effectively gifted Kirk a ship that was gutted to be more old school than the rest of the fleet because he was sick and tired of all the new tech malfunctioning. And because he was scared of ghosts.

This was the "most STTNG like" tv experience since Voyager.

The science part was mostly questionable, the plot doesn't represent writing at its best, but the episode felt like coming home. <3

So I guess the so called fans got what they wanted - 90s quality dialogue and fake drama thats leads nowhere, episodic plots that amounts to nothing. Even Burnham started overacting. Say what you will about first season, but they had clear vision where they're going with this.

Aaaand here we go with an episode ruined with a bunch of bloody green PC propaganda! Also way too much boring dialogue and too little action. First season was much better so far. The drawn out sentimental crap at the end was so boring.

We need to see more of Rebecca Romijn's Number One. She's awesome!

Except for too much dialogue that was a quite good episode, felt like Trek again.

Some characters seem to die slower than Trinity only to miraculously stay alive.

Remember Voyager 2x06 "Twisted" ? The main plot is basically the same.
