I thought it was fairly entertaining. The usual sappy weaknesses but I liked Book and it moved at a decent clip.

Having a break from some of the insufferable Discovery crew was a blessing.

I guess that by the end of the season Book will become a preacher and Burnham will get a lightsabre and become Mayor of Manchester?

Hope so, then we can get that Star Trek / Firefly crossover the fanboys have been crying out for...

I thought the episode was fantastic, I love the idea of jumping so far into the future for keeps, no rest no going back, this is it. And I am so excited to seeing what the galaxy is like, who the powers are and what caused the burn.

I actually think SMG is a pretty good actress and thought she did a superb job of emoting lots of emotions when finding out about the Burn and the Federation and a superb scene on the truth drug.

The show it self looks amazing, all the on location shooting was well worth the effort it simply looks beautiful.

Some of the technology maybe problematic, personal transporters how is that powered, how to you input coordinates and how did they shrink a transporter pad down to that tiny little thing. And that maybe another issue you now have shows in multiple time areas where the technology will need to look different an so far apart from a few cool looking things nothing really says they have jumped nearly 1000 years into the future.

Looking forward to seeing the DISCO crew next episode and agree Tilly was missed but loved the reference to her from Burnham.

Episode 2 watched and back to discovery which pleased me.
The bit at the end, I assume is a misdirect or a trick? Or hallucination?

I took it as Discovery came out of the wormhole a bit later so travelled through time a bit longer, hence Burnham having to wait.

But burnham was on that starship that could only scan one sector?

We shall see!

I still love Michelle yeoh! I forget why the other dark haired woman is there, and clearly a story with the shaved one side of headed/ steering lady. Whose name I clearly don’t know!

She stated she had been there a year waiting for them .
in the first episode they mentioned it might take longer for the ship to go through
Also the federation guy from the first episode was scanning for signals

That both arrived in the same sector, they traveled through time not space so both should arrive in the same local (ish).

Michelle Yeoh rocks.

The dark haired lady, do you mean the one with the breathing aid and is from the Enterprise? She helped Yeoh take out Leeland and was on DISCO when they went through the wormhole.

Lady with the implant/Shaved hair is Lt Detmer. I hope it's not something lame like Control managed to upload itself into her implant.

Episode 3 was very good IMHO.

For me this season is improving every episode, I wonder how long that will last?

For me it's getting worse. Some of the acting in e03 was awful - especially the Captain from Earth and the new non-binary series superstar - that fine actor Christopher Heyerdahl looked genuinely saddened by it all. Michelle Yeoh will surely run out of scenery to chew very soon. At least Burnham looks less like a lesbian now.

I'm s massive star trek fan but I'm scared.
Normally I'd watch this as soon as it comes out but the last series of star trek. Sorry I mean The Burnham Show really hacked me off in so many ways.
Is she the same again? Does not follow rules, does what she emotionally wants to, and gets away with it every time?

Please tell me they've not done it again and this is back to Star Trek and worth watching.
Ideally she gets killed episode 1, but that's too much to hope for!

Axanar is FINALLY nearly here! This is what pre-Kirk Trek should look like!

Is the new young person non-binary? They were called she many times?

Haters will always hate - even if they have to make up stuff to try and prove how bad a show is.

There was absolutely nothing in episode 3 that points to that character being non-binary

I don't think Cj was hating, sounded like she was just asking a question. There are two new characters this season one which is transgender and one which is non binary. Blu del barrio is indeed supposed to be a non binary character.

Blimey. I was just questioning apostle’s post as if the young person was supposed to be non binary I’d have expected much less use of she pronouns. Or at least a passing “i go by they” mention.
