Goofs

Star Base One is noted as being "one hundred AU from Earth". When Discovery comes out of warp next to Star Base One, the station is orbiting an Earth-sized planet. The trouble with this is that Pluto is only forty AU from Earth, at which distance the Sun is merely a bright star. The planet near Star Base One has an atmosphere (which should have frozen out) and has bright sunlight shining on it. See more »

Quotes

Sylvia Tilly: Tyler needs you.
Michael Burnham: I'm told he's doing well.
Sylvia Tilly: That's not possible, not when you've lost the person you care about the most.
Michael Burnham: He killed a Starfleet officer. And he... he tried to kill me.
Sylvia Tilly: And those crimes are reprehensible; but Tyler is not the person who did that, at least he's... he's not anymore. He is something other, someone new. And what we do now, the way that we treat him, that is who he will become. I know you still care about him.
Michael Burnham: I do. That does not mean I should.

Some shows are too afraid of character development Discovery isn't
8 February 2018 | by shaunluckhamSee all my reviews

So we had a lot happening in this episode, some good interaction between the crew, Sarek, Cornwall, Burnham and Tyler. I think Michelle Yeoh does a great job and is really written well in this episode as she has been all along. Tilly still bugs me a little but she's consistent, she bugs me every episode. The spore scene was really well done, probably cost a fair amount of the budget for the episode. Great lead up to the season finale, can't wait.
