Trivia

At the end of the episode, Ash leaves Voq's son on the planet Boreth at a Klingon monastery. In "Star Trek: The Next Generation" (1987), Worf will visit the monastery in Rightful Heir (#6.23). See more »

Goofs

Stametts says Tilly is harboring a eukaryotic organism, which is taken to mean a fungus. This is not what "eukaryotic" means -- eukaryotic organisms includes all fungi, plants, and animals, and presumably many of the extraterrestrial species on Star Trek. See more »

Quotes

Captain Christopher Pike: I reported Spock's advance knowledge of the signals to Command. The information likely made its way back to the Ambassador, along with the news that his son admitted himself into a psychiatric hospital.
Michael Burnham: You didn't betray your friend, Captain. You followed protocol.
Captain Christopher Pike: It's easy to say, harder to believe.

The Good and the bad
2 February 2019 | by lasseraschSee all my reviews

I don't get why people give this episode 1/10 rating. That is not fair.

The show now starts to move towards something that looks and feels like a real startrek show.

But i do agree with people saying that the camera work was terrible. They focus Way to much on "cool" camera effects instead of the story. Please stop doing that. That's not why people watch a startrek show.

Section 31. Now that is cool and something i have wished for to happen in season 1 also.

Really looking forward to where that story Line is going...

I like the fact that they try to better introduce other caracters than Michael. Give Them some "air time".

Looking forward to the next episodes.
