Trivia

In Greek mythology, Lethe was both a river in the underworld and the Greek goddess of forgetfulness and oblivion. There was also a character named Lethe in Star Trek: The Original Series: Dagger of the Mind (1966) and a telepathic species called the Letheans in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Distant Voices (1995) and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Sword of Kahless (1995).

Goofs

In the beginning you see Sarek preparing to leave Vulcan. In the background you can see two large moons in the sky despite the fact that Spock has said that Vulcan has no moons in the original series. This was answered decades ago (after the first Star Trek movie showed a similar sight): Vulcan has a sister planet (T'Khut) with its own moon (T'Rukh), which makes Spock's statement technically true.

Quotes

Michael Burnham: All my life, the conflict inside me has been between logic, and emotion. But now it's my emotions that are fighting. I think about him and I want to cry. But... I have to smile. And I feel angry. But I want to love. And I'm hurt, but there's hope. What is this?
Ash Tyler: Ah, it's just... being human.
[she looks at him curiously, then offers him her hand]
Michael Burnham: Michael Burnham. Pleased to meet you.
Ash Tyler: Ash Tyler. We've met.
Michael Burnham: Have we? Let's try it again.
[he shakes her hand]

Cliched, So It's Much Like the Old Star Trek Episodes
7 February 2020 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I thought this was well done. We get to look into the past and get a fix on Burnham's transition to Starfleet. We also see the nutty Captain getting found out. The Klingons are not to be trusted and a trap is set. We also find out who the brother of Burnham is.
