Re: DSC S1: Into the Forest I Go

I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. I'm now fully convinced that Tyler is Voq. I'm also just as certain that Lorca is responsible for the misjump. Can't wait for the next few episodes.

Some nitpicks, however, which I think expose sloppy writing:

How can the Discovery can detect a cloaked ship entering the system?

What on earth was the Phavan's plan? They made the effort to get the Klingons there, what further intervention were they intending (answer: none, as this was just a plot contrivance to move the action along).

How do the Klingons know that the Phavan's possess the technology (that could possibly be used) to detect cloaked ships? Also, how do the Klingon's know the Phavan's are helping the Federation (answer: all this knowledge is just assumed in order to drive the plot).

It's frustrating that the setup was just completely discarded in order to move the plot along. That said, it was a cracking episode so I guess I can forgive it all!

Re: DSC S1: The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry

For the record I liked this episode, but the saucer spinning was a step to far for me really lol

Re: DSC S1: The Vulcan Hello / Battle at the Binary Stars

Hmm I'm in two minds about this. I found the acting to be quite wooden and the script clunky as hell, but I still enjoyed it all the same. As for issues with continuity and the redesign of the Klingons, I say to hell with it: let this show be a reboot rather than a slavish side story inserted into the larger Trek cannon.
