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.

Klingon filler & Section 31 prologue
1 February 2019 | by asp5197See all my reviews

It wasn't great, it wasn't bad. It was a decent filler episode. We got a peek at what Georgiou's series will entail, a possible DS9 foreshadow (is The Albino the child of Voq and L'Rell?), some resolution on Tilly's ghost (a personal highlight for me).

Now for the bad: Pike, who in my mind is the standout of this season, is mostly on the back burner. Also for the love of God no more Klingons, or at least no more Klingon blood feuds, I beg of you writers. Also I have mixed feelings about seeing Ash again, but I would love to see him as a regular in Georgiou's Section 31 series as was implied at the end.

All in all, decent filler.
