That was probably my favourite episode so far :wub: It reminded me of previous Star Trek series...a problem to be solved in one episode and good character development :) I keep forgetting she's half Vulcan....emotionless sorta lol

I can deal with the time travel stuff but no way can I suspend my belief to the point I'm supposed to believe Mudd would be punching on that scale.

Seriously though, that ending was all kinds of gooseberry fool.

Star Trek has never got time travel right, it always feels rushed and filled with stupid holes and happen-stance.

Not entirely true, there are some episodes involving time displacement or time travel that work well. In no particular order: Yesterday's Enterprise, All Good Things, The City on the Edge of Forever, The Sound of Her Voice, and Trials and Tribble-ations.

And in the movies you've got Star Trek: First Contact and Star Trek IV : The Voyage Home

Cause and Effect which is what this episode directly lifts does time travel much better, I think the fact Michael was the focus, and not the one not in the loop kinda broke how the episode should run. The ending also made no sense, seemed everything fell into place for no reason on one attempt

Finally caught up with this week's episode and that was the worst one so far for me. The frat party felt completely out of place and Mudd is a completely different character. I don't know why they didn't just give him a different name and have him be this series recurring humorous baddie.

Focusing on Michael every episode is starting to wear thin when the rest of the cast seem much more interesting.

Watched the episode yesterday, and I don't think it really worked. The groundhog day idea has been done to death, there was some interesting stuff in there, but it didn't really work as a whole. I echo the annoying focus on Michael, Lorca is way more interesting.

The blonde scientist guy is blatantly going to go insane at some point.

Again, I really like this week's episode. The ending was pisspoor, properly awful stuff, but it was fun before that.

Watching the latest episode and they're getting stardates wrong and it's really bugging me. This episode said it was stardate 1308 yet the previous episode was stardate 2316. That would put episode 8 at taking place about 8 months or so before episode 7.

Also saying the Federation has no Death penalty is wrong. During TOS they did have a death penalty for a few select general order offences.

Didn’t like that much. 3 disparate storylines that didn’t seem to add much to anything

I just realised some people may not have seen the episode yet.

I liked it and the coming battle will be interesting as the planet itself will play a huge role.
I think the planet will somehow force both sides into a peaceful scenario but that during it both sides will try and force the issue and they will both be expelled from the area and told never to return or they will be destroyed.
The Klingon interrogator will obviously be found out and die horribly and the admiral is obviously still alive and will escape in the ship full of dead Klingons only to discover she's been implanted with some kind of tracking and intelligence gathering device.

Matey with the spore drive will accidentally send them to the mirror universe and the episode will be top notch just because of the evil moustaches and just the constant aura of evil.

Thought that was a decent episode, definitely the most traditional Trek feeling of the series.

I liked that episode, maybe the best out of them all so far. I liked the idea of the harmony spirit planet.

The needs of the many outweighs the needs of the few or the one...unless you want to Bone the one.

That episode was probably the most Star Trek one so far. Saying that, it wasn't too great, but it does setup some stuff, I guess. Definitely better than the one preceding it.

Enjoyed this weeks episode. Is next weeks the last of the series? Also did she really kill the admiral? I was absolutely convinced that she was just going to knock her out to pretend that she was dead.
