Quotes

Sylvia Tilly: Calculating transporter coordinates from here onto a moving shuttle, inside of a temporal distortion?
Paul Stamets: It doesn't look distorted to me, Tilly. It's just anomalous.
Sylvia Tilly: But if your calculations are off by even a fraction, you will end up...
Paul Stamets: ...very dead, which is why you'll be running the transporter on my mark.
Sylvia Tilly: Oh, man, I knew you were gonna say that.

A Short Episode!
1 March 2019 | by garabedian123See all my reviews

This episode felt like a dream. Mostly because I could not believe that the characters would do what they did in real life. We have a temporal rift opening up for no reason, But Its not interesting enough to keep Michael around, so she leaves for Vulcan...and suddenly, she is there. about 10 seconds pass for the Ship and she is now on Vulcan. I understand editing techniques, but this gives the episode a dream like quality. I have to ask myself was anything really real in this episode?...

First it was just a few nano particles..then it was some tachyon particles, next it was a rift and then it was a full blown wormhole. Its like each person was seeing it as something different. Until everyone agreed that it was a wormhole..Then Michael wanted spock to be on Vulcan and viola...he was!

Not to mention this episode was a FULL 20 minutes shorter than any other episode this season..Overall it was an interesting episode. But I still insist that it all felt like a dream.
