Re: DSC S2: Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 1

In answer to your comment Tanner, potentially the Discovery could fire back on Enterprise.
The episode was the biggest disappointment of series two for me.
It started with the overlong good byes - Stammets to Culber, Burnham to her foster parents (who decided to Pop by because they knew trouble was ahead. Could they have not brought back up??) Burnham to Ash..The rest of the cast to family. That in itself took up about half an hour all told. And to see them all talking to family when it was 20 minutes to leyalands arrival- come on???
With regard to the Spare and Control...I have a feeling that these are two underdeveloped characters....a couple of episodes ago they tried to delete the database...and it couldn't be done. Did anyone try to figure out how this could be done. Now, they try destroy the ship- and oh well, the database has pretty much taken over discovery and won't allow it. They haven't looked at what it is about the database that allows it to do that (other than a terrifically trite 'oh, it must be sentient'. They haven't tried to crack its secrets, to see what benefit it can deliver, to find out what specifically Control wants (maybe the offending data can be targeted and deleted. Maybe control wants it for some good purpose). They have a major mystery, something that's sentient....and no one's looking at it.
Jammer also infers above that we really don't why Control wants the database, except that Control is bad, so it's reason is bad. I loved that moment when Leyland goes to look at a viewer- and a drill mysteriously pops out at him. In that episode we see control appear as a couple of holograms and it mainly says it wants him (you know, cos, he's real bad). Then in the next episode it reveals that it wants Burnham (cos she's at the centre of everything, right??) Outside of that we know nothing about it..and thus they fight it, not knowing why...

Re: DS9 S4: Shattered Mirror

I wonder if Jammer looks back at his reviews and says ' Oh geeze, how did I come up with that' :-)
This episode was awful. From the glossing over of the captain's and Jakes kidnapping to the fact that the captain doesn't blink at the apparent theft of the defiant's plans. C'mon DS9, you can do better than this...
