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 »


Amanda Grayson: Spock speaks highly of you, Captain Pike. Now my daughter does, too, so I know I've come to the right people.
Captain Christopher Pike: Well, ma'am, that makes it all the harder for me to tell you. I can't open this file. If I did, I'd be in violation of the rules, and my mother wouldn't like that.
Michael Burnham: There is precedent in Starfleet case law for a captain to invoke...
Captain Christopher Pike: [to Amanda] Was she this bossy as a kid?
Amanda Grayson: On Vulcan, we call it "persistent", and yes, she was. She learned that from me.

Good story telling?
2 February 2019 | by tomnikolerisSee all my reviews

What is this episode? Soooo far fetched, so many decisions that would not happen in real life. Not going to sick bay when you are seeing a ghost and previous episode you where like "yeah science"? Your friends ,co workers , captain not telling you to go to sick bay or even order you, after they saw you talk into thin air.

Every single scene feels like it is practiced 100 times , the actors feels like they are doing the moves just to get to the end of the scene.

So much talking and talking and i really don't care, i am kinda bummed by this episode.

If this is star trek cant we not have this silly soap opera writing, the show feels small and crowded with no one really shining at the moment.Cant we do the fun stuff about star trek? Lets evacuate a planet, or drill some hole in the magma of an H class planet. Or beam some people up and down, i don't know i don't get paid for this, but how about we encounter a freaking space anomaly and someone get sicks and has flashbacks of alternate timelines which eventually and up to be the conscious mind of another dimension being and we wrap it up with some positive message like teamwork and logical thinking, throw some ethics in there too.

I said it before ,this is a space opera episode.. and maybe show? i hope not. .
