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 »

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.

Hopes crushed
2 February 2019 | by aakahkonSee all my reviews

The first two episodes of season two gave me hope for ST:D. They had optimism, light heartedness and a charming yet competent captain Pike. Then along come plastingons, Spock-redefining family drama and above all, something like 37 shots that begin with the camera upside down. I really hope this isn't the direction the rest of the season will take.
