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

Perfect account of all the shortcomings of this series, especially the forced effort of showing how "awesome" Burnham is - enough, we get it.

And after all that awesomeness on display, her mission as captain of the Discovery is that of Star Fleet Dithiium delivery driver. Awesome!

My hope is that the story line tacks to show how Star Fleet rebuilds itself, through the experiences of Discovery. Most of the season long arcs - The Burn, Section 31 - have not been really well executed. It may be better to move toward the TOS anthology type of story telling for Season 4.

Re: DSC S2: The Sound of Thunder

After some thought, this episode is reminiscent of The Apple episode from TOS, with the arbitrary decision to accelerate a culture’s development via gunboat diplomacy. The only saving grace is that Saru self realized a change to his being which makes the decision by Pike to accelerate the species evolution somewhat reasonable, all things considered.

A well crafted show that continues the Red Angel arc while giving Saru’s being valuable context.

Re: ORV S2: Identity, Part I

The thing about this show that's been refreshing from prior TNG, DSN, and Voyager shows is that story arc and crew seem to be more fun and lively. People can chide all they want by saying that it's McFarland's sophomoric humor - fine, it sure beats TNG smugness and DSN brooding.

That said, the few recent episodes were getting quite heavy with the moral/ethical questions posed. However, this episode really snapped us back into a sci-fi mindset, which was nice.
