Re: DSC S2: An Obol for Charon

I have to say that (based on the somewhat limited amount of material given so far), I quite like Captain Pike's character...even if this particular episode wasn't his finest showcase. He seems to be a natural cross between Kirk and Archer. The effect is one part familiar, one part distinctive. But overall, he's one of the most Trek-like things within this Trek series. Hopefully he sticks around for a decent length of time.

Re: DSC S1: Will You Take My Hand?

I was disappointed in how this episode tried to handle the hostage-taking of Qo'noS. I just feel that Klingons are not going to respect such an outlandish claim about such a weapon without proof.

Simple workaround: there should have been hundreds of those small bombs delivered into the planet's interior, distributed all around the globe. That way there would have been an opportunity for L'Rell to detonate one in an uninhabited area as a demonstration. This doesn't seem all that convoluted to me given how small the bombs were.

More time should have also been used to explain why the Klingons would accept the leadership of someone using such a gambit. A bit of lore-building, if you will. L'Rell could have explained it in her speech to the rest of the Klingons. Example explanation that would have satisfied me: "The reason I was able to put this knife to all your throats is because divided, you were complacent. You underestimated your enemy, and their ability to strike at the homeworld. It was their knife, but now it is mine, and you will yield to me. In time, you will learn how to live as part of a united Klingon race. Then every knife will be pointed at our enemies."

...though hopefully better written than what I wrote up there. ;-)
