  1. Season one ends in a few weeks. Wait till it does then, if it's still available, subscribe to the free trial and binge the whole season one in a weekend. If free trial isn't available, buy one month, watch, then suspend the account until season two is available.
  2. Not the greatest interpretation of (the filthy! lol) Tellarites we've seen imo, but the rest were fine with me. Loved Mirror Sarek, especially. And his response to the meld with Burnham...SHOCKING!
  3. It is always darkest before the dawn. ;-) Wow is right. The Tyler reveal was speculated of but as executed, no one could say for absolute certainty. That they kept that secret for so long is amazing! As usual I cannot wait to see what they have up their sleeves next... Is the current Emperor descent of Hoshi Sato? Is Lorca originally from the MU? Will Stamets and M Stamets combine to become Q? LOL! Kidding but I do expect them to do some kind of miracle together.
  4. Sorry, no. My Netflix que is pretty full of older material I am still working though. Thanks for the heads up though, maybe someday...
  5. I know the bots are congregating on this thread but just ignore them.
  6. Agreed. Having a look at this EW first look (spoilers >>>) http://ew.com/tv/2018/01/14/star-trek-discovery-aliens/ I see Mirror Voq makes an appearance. I soo hope he and (surgically altered prime Voq to become) Tyler have a scene together. Andorians!
  7. I saw her once, at a convention in the 90's. Of all the Trek stars I've seen in person she was the most fun.
  8. How dare I obtain any sense of enjoyment from this abomination! Gene's Vision must be spinning in its grave! @VaBeachGuy Kevin is probably very caught up in his Eagles right now, but I am hoping he gets around to watching and weighing in on it here someday. Him being TOS fan, I suspect he'll appreciate what they are trying to do with Discovery. But even if he hates it that won't effect my opinions of the show. I watch what I like regardless of others opinions.
  9. Anyone else fascinated by the spore drive technology on Discovery? Did you know Stamets, the character in Discovery who discover-invents the tech is based on a real Mycologist named Paul Stamets? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Stamets and check this out... https://www.ted.com/talks/paul_stamets_on_6_ways_mushrooms_can_save_the_world -------------------------------- Clearly something huge will eventually go down on Discovery which sweeps this tech under the rug one way or another, (Section 31? / DTI? / the Mycelium network gets destroyed?) but I am loving every minute of this out of this world sci-fi concept.
  10. Stamets will become The Traveler. Merry Christmas!
  11. I think it is real news but all that's been authorized is for a script to be written. Guarantees of production probably haven't been given yet. Merry Christmas!

  13. Mudd programmed Norman to destroy the ship if he couldn't take total control, if they attempted to change course. In, I, Mudd, listen for his intention to allow the Enterprise to spiral down to Rigel killing everyone aboard. Sure, it could be said he knew Kirk would not allow the ship and crew to be destroyed, would do as told to prevent that but then again, technically, no one in MTMTSMGM stayed dead. At worst Stamets was made a little weary from it all.
  14. I can imagine a day of drinking Blood Wine, head butting and pain-sticks, a meal of live Gagh topped off with a Klingon Oprea. What's not to like?
  15. Of course Star Trek is better! If only we could convince the ignorant masses who show up to Star Wars to the tune of billion dollar box office takes to do the same for ST.
  16. Hey DrWho42, long time no see. I never heard of it before but I'll check it out. Looks like my kinda weird. lol
  17. A little of both, I'd say. The voters got Sisko right, him owning a restaurant and Janeway in 2nd, probably spent time with Neelix in his kitchen but the rest, I cannot recall them ever being around food preparation. And why no Riker representation? We know he could at least scramble eggs, even if they tasted terrible. lol
  18. $150?!
  19. They got it specifically for Discovery.
  20. I watch, it's fun.
  21. Yes, I do. And they love it as much as I.
  22. He perhaps never went that far but wasn't for lack of trying. Re-watch his OS episodes again, pay attention to what he WANTED or INTENDED to do verses how far he actually got.
  23. About this episode title, does anyone remember Lethe from TOS episode Dagger Of The Mind... http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Lethe There is speculation around the web Admiral Cornwall might become Lethe. https://www.inverse.com/article/37820-star-trek-discovery-original-series-lethe-corwnell-theory I like the idea. I can image Admiral Cornwall becoming Lethe after the Klingons Mind Sift her, cause her to act against the Federation in some way leading to her eventual internment at the Tantalus Colony. Also about this episode, does anyone else see a possible connection between Micheal and Sarek's mindmeld being a huge part of Sarek's Bendii Syndrome?
  24. I get what you're saying, he did seem more ruthless than we remember him but remember no one was actually permanently dead as a result of his actions. His endgame was to steal the ship and hand it and the crew over to the Klingons all in one piece, a very Harry-esque plan. Is all the times he murdered all those people really murder if no is really dead at the end? Of course but not to Harry, it isn't. The repeating temporary deaths of everyone was just a tool he needed to achieve his goals. My biggest regret for the episode is not getting to hear him say something like, 'Me? A murderer? What murders? There's been no murders. Look around, everyone is alive!"
