Regarding the lasting change to the character of Saru after the loss of his threat ganglia, it remains to be seen if the writers remember that his character is not so apprehensive any longer and which practical consequences this will entail. However, I don't understand how gravitational red shift could possibly help if recorded from two random points, both of which may be very far away from a massive star that could cause such a red shift. The suit itself is said to incorporate technology from the future. She is happy to see Saru again after so many years, yet quickly recognizes that he has not returned because of her, which upsets Siranna. Stamets reveals to Burnham and Tyler that in one of the time loops they had danced together and kissed.
But it took me until the Red Angel actually showed up that I thought by myself that someone else might climb off that suit. She may have brought the technology aboard, but it is also possible that these are standard devices we usually don't see. Another thing that doesn't quite work is the return of Ash Tyler. Now would be a good time to ask Pike about Spock, but she doesn't. Overall, his involvement could and perhaps should have been a bit more personal, maybe even emotional. And considering that the Talosians may manipulate her mind in nearly every possible way as they already demonstrated to her with the black hole in the flight path , her resistance may be futile anyway. Even on explicit request, he would definitely remain silent about who is to blame and why.
But as much as Discovery tries to adhere to canon in its second season, the death penalty is one thing that is simply not desirable to have in Star Trek. Then the Discovery somehow interacts with a field around the big rock and is pushed away. They don't all live on the same planets and certainly those different planets would have different environments. Especially the turbolift ride through huge open spaces and the rollercoaster-like pod launch are totally unrealistic and were included just for some unnecessary extra thrill. We learn that the Red Angel is likely human.
Burnham, the prodigy, on the other hand, does not only steer the pod through the asteroid field all manually, she also predicts that a boulder would hit Connolly. It may be clarified later but currently it does not make sense. Tilly's overeagerness lands her in trouble but when the planet - and Discovery's landing party - are threatened, her curiosity may be the one thing that can save them. The parasite claims Discovery has nearly destroyed its ecosystem by using its species' network to jump through space with the spore drive. Returning to Discovery, Pike reviews footage from a helmet camera recovered on the planet to see that the population had been taken from Earth by the Red Angel from Burnham's vision. But although I was glad that the worst part was over and that Tilly did not have to join Spock on Starbase 5, I didn't really enjoy the rest either. And the continued deception about her true identity gets on my nerves.
But while it may be fascinating, I doubt that it will fit into the timeline without wiping the life-changing events from everyone's brains and particularly from Spock's brain. And even l'tak terai didn't turn out an unnecessary new mystery but provided the key to the decryption of the strange numbers that Spock kept repeating which he reversed because of his condition. Voq promises that T'Kuvma's legacy will live on. Burnham and Stamets decide to disable the forcefield emitters so the suit with the data would be pulled into the far future, knowing that they have no means of keeping back Gabrielle Burnham. Rating: 7 If Memory Serves Synopsis Stardate 1532. The series was also starting to overrun its per-episode budget, while Fuller was attempting to design new sets, costumes, and aliens for the series while heading the series' writers and also spending considerable time addressing his commitments as showrunner of another new series,.
Tyler is eventually revealed to actually be the Klingon Voq disguised as a human. The characteristic large heads still look much the same. But it seems odd how Georgiou could find Spock's shuttle far out in space, more or less directly after her mission on Qo'noS or, alternatively, not so far away at all? I'm looking forward to this aspect of the story. Commentary This episode doesn't have a good start because it continues with the unnecessary secret-mongering about Spock. Commentary I had low expectations for this episode because the trailers indicated that Discovery would switch to a serial format again, and would, besides the search for Spock, continue with the unfortunate storylines and characters from the first season.
The sphere sends the data and finally explodes, but not before reversing the polarity of the stasis field to allow the Discovery to escape. I like anyway that, at times in this episode, the Klingons talk and fight like the Klingons we know, and Kol-Sha is particularly convincing in this regard. This may be a bit melodramatic but is clearly a highlight of the episode. I know that some fans will interject that the Q are omnipotent too. We already knew that Klingons, Section 31 as well as Vulcan extremists tried to kill her as a child. The gravitational pull is going to tear this place apart. But Georgiou knows about a secret, that Leland is responsible for the deaths of Burnham's parents.
The idea of Saru as a person who, when angry, may become some sort of Hulk with new superpowers in addition to the ones he already had, such as the superior eyesight and MacGyvering skills does not sit well with me. Klingon children had no hair in T'Kuvma's flashback, and Mirror Voq was hairless as well. The Section 31 fleet soon arrives, forcing Pike to order Discovery be destroyed to keep the sphere data away from Control. I need you to repeat after me. Leland knows that he deserved.
