Re: DSC S2: Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2

They could’ve planted a timed detonation device on The Caretaker and had it set to explode after they used it to get home. Oops, wrong show!

I liked Nhan’s “Yum yum!” along with her “So many fun ways to answer that question!” It’s nice that they’re giving her a personality.

“I only heard on Big Bang Theory that Wesley Crusher was hated. Until that I didn't know anything about it. I suppose that is true for many. ”

“While that is true it was always an odd choice to write Trek show so tightly knit around one character. It would not be impossible to turn Discovery into more of a ensemble show in season 3 without losing Burnham as a protagonist”

That would be a huge change in premise of the show. If that happens, we’ll know the series is doing badly. I’m willing to guess, however, that the writers like having a story that isn’t told mainly from the captain’s POV like other Treks and explores more of the sub-command structure of the ship. Having the story revolve around a science officer like Burnham is a unique opportunity to explore Star Trek in a new way.

News reports lead us to believe there’s three or more other Trek projects in the works at the moment. Why can’t those be ensemble shows and leave Discovery the way it is for the people (like Jammer, for example) who like it?

Re: DSC S2: The Red Angel

@wolfstar

It doesn’t matter how much people complain, Burnham’s been the series’ protagonist and that’s not going to change. If you’re watching this show still and haven’t figured that out, and hold onto some misguided idea that this fundamental part of the show will change, you’re setting yourself up for disappointment. You might as well hope that the next Avengers movie doesn’t spend much time on Tony Stark’s life. It’s a ridiculous and unproductive discussion.
