The show is definitely hitting its stride now. As mentioned earlier, this week flew by, but then it was less than 38 minutes long & that includes the previously + opening/closing credits...

I found it a little boring. Nothing was a surprise as people on t'interweb had worked it all out ages ago.

You would have enjoyed it more had you not read any spoilers.

Indeed, I feel a bit sad that everyone on Reddit has managed to figure out all of the twists so far, some well in advance. It's ruined the fun for me a bit, so I'm staying away now.

First rule of fan theory club - never read any fan theories.

I'm so glad I went into Westworld knowing nothing about it, for example.

Yeah, I haven't caught up with the post break episodes so I'm wary of even reading this thread

They weren't spoilers they were just people on forums like this guessing the storyline.

Excellent wrap to to the MU storyline with some really unexpected stuff. These characters have really come into their own, I was super impressed by Saru's speech to the crew.

Anybody else expect (hope) that they

I was really enjoying that arc and would have liked it to continue a little longer, good end though and with that ending, where next?

I'm really disappointed with what they've done with Lorca. A morally-ambiguous Starfleet captain had so many possibilities.

My co-worker will be a pain tomorrow as he gets man-childish when his theories are wrong as he thought it was double bluff about Lorca being the Terran version

Hopefully they don't "fix" the storyline with some voyager time travel reset button

With some of the theories that I read ages ago ( I stopped as it was getting dull). I'd wondered if Lorca, as morally-ambiguous as he was and being from the Mirror Universe had been the founder of Section 13.



It was a fun thought though that this pervasive, untrusting and ruthless side to Starfleet could have been created by a Terran.

Is Section 13 the mirror universe version of Section 31 . . . makes sense.

No, that would be Section ƖƐ


I shall hang my head in shame at the next annual Star Trek and general nerd Convention.
