I just watched up to the fifth(maybe 6th) episode, which ever has the swear in it. This isn't star trek. It's not bad Science fiction though. I fear it is losing steam though. Will watch a bit more.

I was satisfied with the last episode of the year
Arguably it was a little pandering but I was susceptible
I don't think Burnham should've been a match for Kol
IIRC Canadian actress Wendy Crewson claimed she was cast but now I'm thinking she was supposed to play Cornwell and got recast
I found the fight scene odd as well. At least Burnham was getting beat but I guess they should have shown Kol toying with her more. I mean, he's trying to be the supreme leader of a warrior race, you'd think he'd be one of, if not the best fighter they have.

So maybe Tyler was brain washed possibly during his torture? Something must've been implanted in his mind that'll be triggered in the future


and also... Mirror-verse time? looks like they ended up in a place where starfleet destroyed the klingons?

Looking like L'Rell might have implanted Voq into Tyler.

The Terran Empire certainly kicked assed in the Mirror-verse.

Hmm time for them to capture some nice technology to bring back home for the fight. And they only have 4-5 more eps to do that.

Sadly I predict they'll be the "hunted" as well with the terran empire wanting the spore drive for their conquest as well. Episodes will probably concentrate on getting home.

The scene of the chamber holding Lt. Stamets froze, just like the on the other ship when they found it adrift - what's the theory to that?

Love it or lump it, a second season has just been announced

Work on the second season has started, will air early 2019.




Even though work on the second season is about to get stated, don’t expect to watch the second season until some time early in 2019. Alex Kurtzman has already said he’d like to make sure the second season gets the time it needs, learning from mistakes made during the first season’s production.

Don't see how they can expect people to keep their CBS subscriptions if the wait is 1 year or more. There will be significant cancellations. They are better off if they spread out the episodes more to give them more time to work on them.

I liked the last episode quite a bit. Funny, the thing that stuck in my mind and bothered me was the presence of the Vulcan Starfleet admiral. I always thought that Spock was the first Vulcan to join Starfleet.

I can't get past those Klingons!!! They look horrible and they can't even speak Klingon!!! Did they breed with some Remans or what?

He probably was - they have mentioned the Enterprise as a ship in their fleet, he's probably aboard her as a Lt. or something.

Spock became a Starfleet officer in 2250 while Discovery is based in 2255 so yes, he's around but the Admiral must have had to had a longer Starfleet career to get where his is in 2255.

How do we know he wasn't a Vulcan version of Admiral? Would Earth make allies with Vulcan and then start their officers all off as a Starfleet cadet?
The Intrepid was an all Vulcan crew during the TOS era, so obviously they had a Vulcan captain, outranking Spock.
Heck we don't even really know if Vulcan has the authority driven version of Starfleet's navy do we?
It's hard to reconcile this series with TOS anyway, it's so different.
