Re: DSC S1: Despite Yourself

@ Chrome,

"I'm under the impression that the history of the MU was changed by having the Defiant go back in time in ENT. Is that not correct? To me this MU already seems very different from the one we know in the TOS - DS9 episodes."

This episode takes place nearly 100 years after the ENT episode remember, and about 10 years before TOS, and about 100 years before DS9.

So saying that something is different than the other episodes is sort of meaningless, since pretty much anything could have happened between any of those time periods.

And writers, at least please mention Empress Hoshi! Thank you.

I also hope they devote some time to the MU Discovery that got switched into the prime universe, so we can see what happened with that whole situation.

Re: DSC S1: Despite Yourself

They kept saying Emperor, not Empress, so sadly for me it's probably not Empress Hoshi, which is what I was hoping for, and probably not Georgiou either. I have no clue who it may be at this point, but I'm sure it's someone we already know.

And I agree that the special effects on the exterior of the ships sort of suck. The rest of the effects are great for the most part. Not sure why the ships look like crap.

I can't understand why they keep sending Ash on all these missions when they know he's practically a nutcase. And killing Culber and getting away with it for long enough to go with Lorca and Mike? No way. Btw, where is the CMO?!?

One thing I didn't like is that in all the other MU episodes it was sort of campy and melodramatic. Here they are playing it totally serious. Not what the MU is about, at least for me.

And I sincerely hope the entire rest of the season isn't in the MU. Another episode or two would be plenty. But since I'm 99% sure that Lorca is going to be from there, they almost have to finish the season out in the MU, or pretty much ditch his character.

Also I don't know if was sort of an inside joke or what, that they didn't know who the chief engineer was from the database in the MU, so Lorca had to fake it, because they don't know who their own chief engineer on Discovery in the prime universe is either. :D

A good episode. 3 stars.
