S3E2 Good - that opening crash sequence was pretty awesome, and I will never get tired of watching Starfleet get what it deserves for not inventing seatbelts

S3E2 Bad - the same VFX team that brought the thrilling opening crash sequence to life was also responsible for the Babylon 5 quality parasitic ice?

S3E2 Ugly - 1,168 years from now, alien mining technology is exactly the same as ours! they've still got these kicking around on a planet where the ground literally eats equipment at nighttime:



also, of course Space Negan is going to come back and make them pay for their silly Federation ethics of sparing his life.

I don’t have time to list all the things wrong with S2 E13 and 14.

I liked the whole time loop, even though it seemed eerily similar to Interstellar. I didn’t even mind the tie ins links to TOS with Spock and Pike.


But story wise, from about halfway thru 13 to the end of 14...wow. I’d need more effort than I have right now to point out everything that was dumb about it. The list would be pages long.

I have no idea how to rate this season. Sometimes an 8/10, sometimes a 2/10. I think what bothers me is it has so much wasted potential. At least bad shows that don’t try to be good are just bad all around. This is so close to being good and yet so very, very far. I’m not mad, I’m disappointed. Nothing I dislike more than wasted potential.

Yup, they went back to the "crash space ship into a planet" well. I had to wonder, how did they travel 1000 years, and end up directly in front of a planet. Space is pretty empty. Like, really empty. What are the odds of that happening?


The episode in general was quite enjoyable though. Probably because it lacked Burnham.



And ya, Space Negan is obviously going to get revenge. I mean, he said "I'm going to kill you and your family." "Oh, ok, here, have a bag, go take a walk."


Unfortunately with the big rescue, we get to spend the next few episodes with Burnham explaining every detail of the future to us, since she now has a year in it. Instead of "Discovery" we get her just telling us everything. Expect them to go to that one often. "In the year I was alone, I found out yadayadyada and it solves this problem we have". Ugh.

Haha I kind of laughed at that too. For one of them to emerge next to a planet is extremely, extremely unlikely. For both to emerge at different planets? Infinitesimal.

Well, to be fair, they Enterise did emerge a year later. More than enough time for one planet to be replaced by another..
