Re: DSC S3: That Hope Is You, Part 2

Another BIG THREAT to the galaxy? And this time it's a... it's a... A GRAVITATIONAL ANOMALY! Oh the sheer creativity of this writing team! A TNG/VOY episode stretched across an entire season, that'll work!

Spoiler alert: Michael Burnham saves the galaxy. Or the universe. Or the mirror universe. Or the Q-continuum. Everybody cries.

FFS. Why is that that the only people capable of taking care of a THREAT TO THE GALAXY is this one pathetic starship? There's literally an entire galaxy of civilizations, and there's nobody there that can take care of those threats except Michael Burnham? For crying out loud, why is this universe so small?

Coming season 5 to Star Trek: Discovery: the crew faces a threat to the entire galaxy! And this time it's a... a LAMP MONSTER!

Re: DSC S3: That Hope Is You, Part 2

I'm awfully bit late to the party, first post here, although I've been visiting this page for ages.

I thought I'd chime in with regards to people trying explain away the ginormous turbolift shafts with "warp bubbles" and how the ship might be "bigger inside than outside".

This might be only my impression and a biased one, but I feel that Star Trek has always been about practicality. We know what purpose the holodeck serves. Or the transporters. Or the replicators/food synthesizers. Or how the warp drive works. Discovery is on the opposite side - they invent things that are supposed to look cool without serving much purpose:

- floors at the Starfleet HQ made from programmable matter: WHY
- detachable nacelles. Yeah, "greater maneuverability". In space. No. They just look cool, but they make no sense.
- all the ship at Starfleet HQ sustaining the field or whatever. So basically they can't move?
- ginormous turbolift shafts. What's the PURPOSE of all that EMPTY SPACE? And even IF that space is needed and the ship is indeed using a "warp bubble" to be "bigger on the inside", it still begs the question: WHY. Why would one want to make the ship smaller on the outside? Why would the size of a *starship* matter? Is it easier for parallel parking or what? It makes zero sense in this universe/franchise.
