Yeah, the time loop episode is a staple of Star Trek. Pretty fun. I liked how they kept the Treknobabble to a minimum.

I've noticed that every episode so far is very Burnham focused. The other modern Trek series would have episodes that focused on other members of the cast as well.

From the onset, CBS stated that Burnham was going to be the lead of the series.

I know she's the lead, but the other modern series all let the supporting characters get episodes of their own too. Heck, DS9 even gave its recurring characters like Nog and Vic get episodes all to themselves!

I enjoyed the last episode. A divergence from the main story line and a bit of light fun.

Latest episode reminded of the X-Files episode "Monday" which was one of my favourites.

Vulcan logic of course....

I was going to post a word play game but then I realized the moderators might give me infractions. Lets just say it involves the words: Vulcan, dictates

Good episode - this is more in line with recent star trek series. So they really can do a vintage star trek story line if they needed to - that's good to know.

reminded me of the TNG episode, 'Cause and Effect'. Not surprised if they borrowed the idea

The actor playing Lt. Stamets is the one accusing Kevin Stacey of sexual misconduct. I thought he looked familiar.
