The idea that Michael's mother is tethered to a point in time is similar to DS9: "The Visitor" (also involving a dead parent who returns), in which Sisko is temporally tethered to his son Jake. See more »


Wilson Cruz is not credited in this episode even though he appears throughout, it's likely the incorrect title sequence was used that omits his name and may be corrected in future releases. See more »

Cmdr. Michael Burnham: [of her mother] She was right. What fight are we supposed to be continuing, Spock? Everything we try fails. Now, with no suit... no time crystal... it'll always be one step ahead of us.
Spock: Respectfully, Dr. Burnham was incorrect. Now does matter. What happened before no longer exists. What will happen next has not yet been written. We have only now.

Poor understanding
30 March 2019 | by DavePotterSee all my reviews

Again we have a Starfleet officer who is overly emotional and can't make the right rational decisions. Frankly Michael should be stripped of title and thrown in the brig or kicked out of Starfleet entirely with her behavior. She goes down to talk to her mom, only to NOT discuss what she was supposed to and make it all about her drama and herself . Who cares about the rest of the sentient life in the galaxy.

Then we have one after another, the extended dramatic scenes during emergency situations. Let is discuss this a little more while we're in this emergency because I have feelings to address.😒

I'm trying really hard to like this at this point I would seriously doubt I'm going to be watching this for a third season. You're ruining something that really wasn't hard to follow and use, the number of extended shows from the original shows it's quite easy to get a following if you write well, and stick to the cannon. Disappointed to say the least. And anyone who isn't also disappointed is lowering their bar and/or doesn't understand what Star Trek and Starfleet actually it is.
