Re: DSC S1: Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum

Avatar meets This Side of Paradise. In This Side of Paradise, Spock observes that for the first time, he was happy; in this episode, Saru observes that for the first time, he wasn't afraid. I don't think Saru could be held any more accountable than Spock was - they did mess with his mind, after all. An OK episode, but nothing new.

I don't think Burnham would go back to prison after this. A court-appointed lawyer could get clemency for her after her service on Discovery, even if Burnham didn't offer a defense herself. She didn't seem to offer any defense in her trial, and she might have felt she was going back to prison, but as long as she serves honorably on Discovery, I think it's unlikely she would go back to prison if her time on Discovery ends.

I could do without the clumsy fan service with the "Needs of the many" speech.

Re: DSC S1: Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad

It's an OK episode, and does the time loop thing fairly well. It's rather contrived to think the Madd his himself in a space whale, assuming Discovery would take it aboard. Taking it aboard makes no sense - this is a creature whose natural environment is a vacuum and zero gravity. Placing it under gravity and atmosphere is a bad idea. And how is there room inside this creature for a ship?

But the biggest issue is psuedo-Mudd. He's nothing like Harcourt Fenton Mudd. Mudd's a two-bit con man, not some criminal genius. Mudd's the charming life of the party, buying drinks for everyone - until he sticks you with the bill. Mudd is, as Kirk put it, an irritant. Maybe Mudd has a cousin with the same name - he'd be an OK villain, but he isn't our Mudd.

Re: DS9 S6: Change of Heart

It just seemed out of character for Worf to abandon his duty to save one life when doing so meant that millions of billions would die. It's the whole thing about one named character mattering more than a million nameless redshirts. If you're not willing to accept the risk, don't accept the mission. Perhaps they couldn't court martial him, but he probably should have been asked for his resignation.
