Trivia

Admiral Cornwell says that the Discovery will be the first Federation ship in nearly one hundred years to visit Qo'noS, since Captain Archer and the Enterprise visited the Klingon home world in 2151 in Star Trek: Enterprise: Broken Bow: Part II (2001). See more »

Goofs

Stamets says that the Discovery is a little over a light-year from Starbase One, Sarek makes it sound as if their journey would be long and dangerous. Yet it would only take the Discovery a few hours to travel a light-year at warp factor 5. See more »

Quotes

Sylvia Tilly: Did you ever think, when you signed up for Starfleet, that you'd be forced to see war and death?
Michael Burnham: Death found me when I was a child. So, yeah. I knew what I was getting into.
Sylvia Tilly: I don't think I did. Not really. Does that make me naive?
Michael Burnham: It makes you optimistic.

A great run up to the final
5 February 2018 | by tomfranklin-47157See all my reviews

One thing this episode does strongly is demonstrate a team, working together to achieve a common goal. But with the edition of a certain character from another Universe attempting to gain as much power as they can from their situation. I look forward to seeing how this all finishes in the final episode, and how the effects will move on into season 2.

Hopefully once this Klingon war ends we will be shown a more star trek formula in the next season enticing those fans who hate the linear story line, of course I have to say personally out of all the Star trek series' this one definitely had the best first season, and unless the ending falls to a horrible cliffhanger, which I'm worried it might, the season will continue to remain in that slot for me.
