This was a good episode.
8 December 2018 | by duck_dodgers-43284See all my reviews

This episode is good,but unfortunately the next one will be disaster,because the villain is not scary,handsome or powerful ,is just a villain for suitable for the 60's,but this episode is good,the shuttle (which looks way better than the ones from DSC even if is supossed to be older just like Shenzou ) reminds me about the unused space aeroshuttle from Voyager.I always tbought Voyager was a pretty boring series and they should have been changed their uniforms with the ones from First Contact and Voyager should have been replaced with a ship like USS Prometheus,for better ratings, the producers don't had the courage to do nothing ,so i think Discovery should be replaced by a ship like Shenzou or Europa ,and the shuttles shuld be replaced by the new old one from this episode.By the way,the color scheme of the uniforms is below the color scheme of the uniforms from the Cage,and the uniforms from Beyond are looking so spectacular compared with the ones from DSC.I have one question that bothers me about the new series:-Why Enterprise uniforms have the color scheme of the uniforms used in Kirk's timeline,10 years later ?To conclude,this is one of the most Trekkie episodes of this show.
