Did You Know?


At one point, a call can be heard for "Cadet Decker". This may refer to Willard Decker, who became captain of the U.S.S.

Willard Decker is also the son of Matt Decker, who was mentioned as one of Starfleet's most decorated captains in Star Trek: Discovery: Choose Your Pain (2017). Considering that Discovery takes place a decade before The Original Series, and therefore 18 years before The Motion Picture, the time line would be appropriate. See more »


Michael Burnham: I need to know something. You put on a facade. Like everything that's happened to you just washes off. I actually envied that about you. But when you saw that Klingon... Who is she to you?

An intense episode with a classic star trek style twist at the end.

Enjoyable and the most intense episode so far.
