I really enjoyed this episode. Loved the new Pike - and love the engineer. I like how the characters are developing too. They are not perfect but they are not static either. I like that. Really looking forward to the next one.
Until now I've been enjoying The Orville more than Star trek discovery,from about this season though Star trek has the advantage and I'm looking forward to the next season.It's no longer too serious while feeling amateur in the process.
Somehow they've ironed out that amateur feel it had which is a good thing.
Yes, it also doesn’t bother me, and now they don’t need to appease the Star Trek diehards with canon anymore. Discovery is going into a new direction.
The Section 31 series and the Picard series, which is already in production, is coming. They say that both these series will be ‘more’ Star Trek, but that the Picard series will be ‘more nostalgic’ Star Trek. The producers talked about Section 31 evolving into the underground organisation we know in DS9.
At least Control had nothing to do with the Borg origin story, this had me asking many questions.
