Re: DSC S1: Vaulting Ambition

I wanted to start a bit of a discussion on one point.

Relevant quote from TOS "Mirror, Mirror", regarding how real Spock was able to detect the MU counterparts easily: "It was easier for you as civilized men to behave like barbarians, than it was for them as barbarians to act as civilized men."

Now that we know Lorca was from the MU all along, is this quote still relevant? I feel that it's a direct contradiction to real Spock's observation, and that philosophically, DSC really loses something. Can a barbarian act like a civilized man after all? What does this say about the "civilized" prime Federation at this time that Mirror Lorca the "barbarian" was able to blend in so easily? Or is it just terrible writing?

Thoughts?

Re: DSC S1: Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum

This is the second or third ep where the title doesn't make sense at all in the context of the episode. To be perfectly honest it bugs the hell out of me

Re: DSC S1: Choose Your Pain

Well, the ending of this episode certainly gave me a lot to reflect on.

Re: DSC S1: Context Is for Kings

Without commenting on the rest of the episode I love how they continued the proud redshirt tradition in this episode by having a random nobody security guard accompany the main characters and get offed.

Poor Ensign Ricky or whatever his name was.
