Quotes

[Tyler tells Burnham about his plans for after the war]
Michael Burnham: Our futures look different. You go back to your lake house, and I go back to prison. My sentence was life. This is just temporary.
Ash Tyler: Well, maybe we just leave that transmitter alone. You can't go back to prison if we're still at war.
Michael Burnham: The needs of the many...
Ash Tyler: Are worth fighting for. Are worth dying for. But so are the needs of the few.
Michael Burnham: Or the one?

Between the Lines
7 February 2020 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I'm not writing the series off. I'm just saying that things often happen without preparation. We have this supposedly utopian planet where there appears to be sentient, peace loving air. They (whoever they are) want an end to war and the Federation and the Klingons are at the center of all that. So let's get them together. I haven't seen one iota of peacefulness from these Klingons. Let's see what happens. I'm intrigued...I think.
