Quotes

Captain Christopher Pike: We met at the Academy. Been a couple thousand light-years since then.
Philippa Georgiou: Indeed.

Hyper-convoluted
15 February 2019 | by yoshimo-13129See all my reviews

Sadly the writers doubled down on the crazy mycelium network thing by giving it powers that make the show appear to be more science fantasy than science fiction. And even this fantasy plot is hard to follow, as it is extremely convoluted and features opaque storytelling and presentation in order to mask its bad writing.

And again this episode does not drive the plot, but is the third interlude in a row.
