My timeline knowledge is a bit unclear. Didn't Pike sustain his grave wheelchair injuries while still in command of the Enterprise? And I wonder if events of "The Cage" have already happened or not.
Don't know too much about TOS stuff either....

The events of Talos IV in The Cage happened in 2254 while this finale should be 2257. While Kirk won't begin his stint as Captain of the Enterprise some 9 years later, Spock should be on the Enterprise in this finale.

Where in GTA did they film the Amanda/Michael reunion scenes?

well that was a bit anti-climatic imo.... I guess it was more Star Trek-ish though in the choices that had to be made but there wasn't really much discussion about said choice.
I hear ya. I liked the episode, but something felt kinda rushed.
All this Hoopla with the Klingons, all wrapped up with a speech.

I guess I was hoping for something with non mirror Lorca.

Cool seeing Enterprise, which presumedly would have both Pike and Spock on board.

I still don't get the conclusion of the war. What does L'Rell do, threaten to blow up Qo'nos if they don't unite under her? That makes no sense.
None at all. Like has no one else thought of doing that before? Also, why would the rest of the Klingon cast allow her to become ruler? Wouldn't they be highly suspicious that she was just a Federation captive for a while?

The more I think about it, the more I dislike the conclusion. Everything was way over rushed and really made very little sense.

Yes I agree...

The flip side of the argument would be that the Klingon girl saw how resourceful the humans are and she realized that the humans were smart enough and brave enough fighters to have the Klingon's at their knees and within 1 second of defeat although no other klingon was privy of this, she is high enough in rank to be able to prove it/communicate it.. So she saw the light and realized: 1, the klingon houses cant go around doing their own thing.... because of the non-unification of her people, she saw what it lead too... the destruction of her home world. 2 +++ she got Vog/human back whom she is in love with and would bring her people together which is what Vog wanted.

The Klingon/Fed war that Vog wanted to start was to unify the klingons under one banner.

But yes, I agree though that it was so easy for the Federation to plot a jump course into Qonos land, and then drop a bomb into a volcano that would destroy the entire planet.

How on earth did I miss this?

Klingons - two of everything
“Star Trek” shows like “The Next Generation” and “Voyager” have established that Klingons evolved numerous anatomical redundancies, including two livers, an eight-chambered heart, and two stomachs. Unsurprisingly, science fiction fans being what they are, Trekkers have long speculated that this means Klingons have two of everything. Yes, we mean speculated that they have two penises.
The away team finds themselves at what is essentially a Klingon bar-slash-casino-slash-brothel, where everybody is drunk, losing money, and yelling at each other. As the group walks down a dark street they pass a drunk Klingon urinating on a building. The shot pans down to show two distinct streams hitting the wall — essentially confirming that Klingons are, ah, doubly endowed.

Yes, we mean they apparently have two penises.

He needs to be careful around the captain.
He needs to lay off the activator.

Saw it. Thought about it for a brief moment. Decided to wipe it from memory.

Side by side or front to back?
Ignorance is bliss!

Perhaps this is best kept a mystery, like the 3 shells from "Demolition Man".
