Emperor Georgiou: What's wrong? Are you scared, Number One? Where I'm from, there's a saying: "Scared Kelpien makes for tough Kelpien." Have you gotten tough since we served together on the Shenzhou, Mr. Saru?
Saru: Affirmative, Captain. Very tough. So much so that many find me simply unpalatable.

A very downletting conclusion to Season 1
17 February 2018 | by mbkalkanSee all my reviews

No need to mince words: After such a dynamic start to the second part of the season, and the episodes which built the suspense even further, I was just expecting a more relate-able episode, one which wrapped things up more cleverly and with much more finesse. Alas, that unfortunately was not what was waiting for us in the end.

In short, this was a mediocre episode, with a very lazy and unsatisfactory ending. Theatrics were there, yes, but not the story, and certainly not a proper conclusion. It was as if the writing was rushed and so was the production. Shame, really.
