Trivia

Conspicuously, neither of the two species living on Kaminar are called "Kaminari." This is an inside joke for people who speak Japanese as "kaminari" is Japanese for "thunder." See more »

Goofs

Despite the Kelpiens being very sensitive and fearful, Siranna's threat ganglias don't seem to activate at some points where they most certainly would have to, especially when Michael appears to her (she never saw anything other than Kelpiens), and when she is in the Ba'ul structure, including when the Ba'ul and the drones are threatening them and Siranna looks terrified.

Quotes

Sylvia Tilly: You think the Ba'ul are hiding something?
Michael Burnham: I think they know more about the changes brought on by Vahar'ai than the Kelpiens do, and I think they're willing to do almost anything to keep that secret.
Sylvia Tilly: Will they kill Saru?
Michael Burnham: Not if we can find out what they're hiding in time. And there has to be something in the Sphere's archive. There has to be.
Sylvia Tilly: Well, that's what... Airiam and I are here for. We will find it.
Lt. Cmdr. Airiam: [studying the ship's monitors] There it is.
Sylvia Tilly: When I said "we", I just meant Airiam.

F YESSSS Were back!!!
28 February 2019 | by info-354-549559See all my reviews

I have to admit the past few episodes I have been watching on my second monitor while I work with barely any interest.

This episode I had to put everything down and dig in...what a great episode it felt a little dark and hopeless at times like the old deep space nine episodes which is exactly what I like and come for.

Some of the past eps have been pretty stale I have to admit but hey all the startreks had some stinkers so im sticking to discovery and getting rewarded on and off!
