  1. Enjoyed this episode, with the tie-in references. Nice to hear the acknowledgment of the late Anton Yelchin (Chekov from the Abrams universe) with a starship named USS Yelchin. The series is starting to feel more like TNG Trek, but I feel like there was a missed opportunity to pay homage... where was the arrogant Federation diplomat who would disagree with the captain, remove him from command, screw up royally, and then need to be put it their place by said captain? Not that ever happened in TOS... Seriously, though, why has Starfleet not assigned even one observer to Discovery? We had Lt. Willa for a couple of episodes, but surely future Starfleet would like to have more fingers in the spore drive pie/goo?
  2. Casual Friday for this Imp, around 18:54 into the episode...
  3. Though it's not an in-universe confirmation, the IMDB entry for the episode lists Annabelle Wallis as "Zora (voice)". Annabelle Wallis provided Zora's voice in "Calypso" as well.
  4. Did anyone else get strong TNG vibes from this episode? Of course there was the Trill storyline, but we also had a shuttle landing that looked very “model composited on background”, aliens walking around in long flowing robes, a noble helpful alien, a murderous alien, an officious planetary leader... Or was it just me?
  5. British comedian Lee Mack’s LoD parody:
  6. We laughed at Barry suggesting Allegra point the crystal at his map and then saying, ”hey, look at what the light is shining on... it must be what we’re looking for!” Good thing he didn’t tell her to point the diamond at the floor, or else they’d still be digging!
  7. I thought it was beautiful though heart-wrenching. Zoey and Mitch’s dance was lovely. I liked American Pie for the big closing number. It wasn’t so much about the song’s original meaning for me as much as it was painting that musical backdrop for the family and all the intertwined relationships. However, it’s always a struggle to hear that song and not think of Weird Al’s lyrics: “Soon I’m gonna be a Jedi...”
  8. Did anyone else think that Kestra wouldn't have been out of place on the bridge of Khan Singh's USS Reliant?
  9. Found this on YouTube:
  10. We call it Voight Kampff for short. Poor Dahj. All her moments lost in time, like tears in rain. Patrick Stewart still in great physical shape, voice still such a grand instrument. Deal me in!
  11. Babylon 5 did this with their CGI space battles back in the ‘90s. The creators were very proud of the fact that their Starfury one-man fighters, as well as other small craft, could spin while retaining momentum in order to reorient guns. Ground-breaking at the time.
  12. I don’t like sand. It’s coarse, and rough, and irritating — and it gets everywhere.
  13. How reasonable it it to be infuriated by a fictional character? Is there any excuse for what Shaun’s father said to him?
