How so? I mean, how so like Game of Throne? I can't remember there being any particularly deep lore stuff this ep.

I'll have to buck the trend. I thought that episode was dreadful. It's like they are flat out of ideas and the 'monster of the week' was basically just a big round firey ball.

Saru for me is the best character by a mile so it was good he got a decent story for his own character. The rest, the Tilly stuff, the main story, the whole engineering bit was just so dull and poorly written in my opinion.

Wow, the A-plot Saru / dying star story was actually really good! Impressed at that.

The B-plot Tilly story was fine but felt a bit loose in places. It was enjoyable to spend time with the engineering trio all in one room at least.

Yes. With a newborn in the house, suddenly having a decapitation did not go down well. I assumed there was a twist, but the impact had already been made.

I did get to watch the latest episode. I prefer the monster of the week approach. It balances traditional Trek with the new wave.
