Trivia

When Captain Pike and Number One are conversing near the replicators, one of the replicator units is labeled A-113. A-113 is an inside joke, an Easter egg in media created by alumni of California Institute of the Arts, referring to the classroom used by graphic design and character animation students including John Lasseter, Tim Burton and Brad Bird.

Goofs

When the Universal Translator goes offline, the crew are speaking in different languages. You can see their mouths moving properly with the language they are speaking. Everyone's lips should have been moving to their native language as we hear a different language. This is an error that has occurred throughout Star Trek shows and movies except Star Trek: Beyond where the alien that directed the Enterprise to the planet spoke in her native language but the translator in her collar translated for her.

Quotes

Michael Burnham: I understand your first officer is on her way to Spacedock. Was her visit informative?
Captain Christopher Pike: Number One is very resourceful. People have a tendency to end up owing her favors.

Why they are always in a hurry?
15 February 2019 | by AliensReservoirSee all my reviews

Far better than last week, still some weirdness, but i did enjoy the story between suru and the girl, even i knew he will not die (I thought it will evolve to something else). They also tried to put some fun/pun, which is nice and relaxing. But overall it's a nice episode with a more solid story "a la" true star trek, they need to slow down though... We want to relax while watching a star trek not running. (The Orville is way better in my opinion, but this particular episode reconciled me with STD)
