    I like Georgiou as chaotic. She's kind of like Q in that she should just turn up, do a wacky space adventure and then bugger of for a bit.

    Did anyone else reminded by Spock's vision of The End of . . . Reapers?!?!?!

    I really enjoyed that episode. It felt like the shackles have fully been let off and it its own thing. The show had been tip toeing through its lore but it felt like the axe has come down now and it can be its own thing.

    I’m guessing also that discovery is now in its own timeline. The reason that there was never a Michael was that she ‘originally’ died the night she decided to leave. Red angel came back in time and saved her

    Do we think that lends strength that the Red Angel is Michael or Georgiou?

    Nope, it's the prime line.

    I'd never really considered how much time was supposed to have passed between the original pilot and TOS itself* but I guess we know now.



    * not that continuity was ever a concern of the show in those days

    I would say the latter because there would have to be a Michael in the first place to come back to too.

    Also: I really hate time travel. Star Trek is particularly bad at it, so it does make me wonder why they bother.

    Watching episode 2 of this series.

    The theme tune is pretty good I suppose.

    Yes! I think the annoying ginger girl is dead.

    Now for the rest of the cast.

    We must uphold the prime directive.

    *One little chit chat later*

    Here's a piece of technology that will power your houses for 2 million years.

    It's still general order one, with general being the operative word.

    I'm looking forward to the episode where it goes from 'yeah, whatever' to the 'but we must let this planet with billions of people on it explode' prime directive we all know and love.

    Stabbings in the throat now and decapitated baby heads.

    Now that's a Star Trek!

    I did after the bit with the quirky lady when they sucked a mushroom network ghost out of her chest.

    The mushroom network.

    Mushroom.

    Network.

    You should see how that situation ends up getting resolved

    Neither IMHO. Doesn't make sense unless It is Georgiou from the non-mirror-universe, but no idea how that could happen.

    Obviously female, so... we all know who is left ;)

    I am wondering if the cause of the future event is Airiam and her infection from the probe which was caused by the Red Angel's appearance thus making it technically the catalyst despite it trying to fix the situation. As she isn't human I am guessing she isn't the angel though (not sure if she is a human cyborg though so maybe a possibility)

    Red angle is obviously Picard and the whole thing is going to lead into his TV show

    Not spoilered because its obviously not

    Well that probe looked a bit Borg-like, but the future ships did not. I guess it will be some kind of new enemy... killing all the federation home planets? Romulans? I just hope they do not try to connect to the Kelvin timeline.

    I can think of one race of robotic cephalopods who want to destroy all sentient life in the galaxy

    probe is from 500 years into the future and that would make it close to the 27th century and sadly the Temporal Cold War

    I try not to think too much about it, because it's mainly risible wankslop, but are we even sure that The Red Angel is actually a goodie rather than the cause/protagonist?

    I literally can wait, very patiently, to either find out or to not find out. :)

    I miss him. I've warmed to Captain Dashing though.

    Yeah I really missed Lorca but this incarnation of Pike is really growing on me. Hope he stays for the long haul and Lorca comes back as a grey-area character, since we don't really have anyone like that right now.
