Re: DSC S2: If Memory Serves

I have not been a fan of Discovery for all the reasons that have been rehashed endlessly, most particularly what I believe is lazy writing/fan service that makes the galaxy narratively smaller (a sin committed in spades with Star Wars).

However...

This is easily among my favorite Trek episode regardless of era. The revisit of Talos IV put a fresh spin on that unique race- remember visiting Talos IV is the only capital offense in Starfleet- and really fleshes out Christopher Pike as a person.

The writing team and Anson Mount have crafted Captain Pike into one of the more compelling characters in Trek lore, all the more for knowing his fate. No wonder Spock would have risked everything for him.

If the writers' room can find it in themselves to create characters this engaging outside of canon, they'll be onto something.

BUT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD IT IS NOT ALL ABOUT MICHAEL BURNHAM!
Seriously it's like watching new Voltron and Allura.

Sorry, honey. The universe didn't revolve around Archer, Kirk, Sisko or Janeway.

It revolved around Jean-Luc Picard only because Q was a horrific asshole.
