I enjoyed that.
Seems like there could be quite a few decent story possibilities for the season already.

I enjoyed episode 2.
I hope the rest of the crew get more screentime and finding out what's going on with whatshername's headache caused by her implant should be interesting. I hope it doesn't turn out She's a Borg or something.

I don't think it's specifically caused by her implant. I read it as being a kind of PTSD, and survivor's guilt. Look at how she reacted when that crewmember didn't make it. She is blaming herself for the crash landing, as she was at the helm when it happened. I hope that gets explored and expanded upon through the season.

Is anyone watching this series? I'm finding it a bit difficult to get into.

Discovery's not been amazing, but I've enjoyed what they've done so far.

Went back to TOS after a break and just watched the episoded "Space Seed".

Khaaaan/10

Last episode was boring.

I liked the idea of Burnham/Discovery and the Idris Elba lookalike as a team of ragtag couriers doing odd jobs but at the same time reintroducing the values of Star Fleet to a time where they have been forgotten.

But no its just the same Discovery crew doing the 'science is cool!' script from reddit dorky gooseberry fool.

The Mandalorian has spoilt this for me I think.

I do think they were a bit quick to find the Federation. A bit more time with them alone trying to piece together where they are and find them would have been nice.

Both this and Mandalorian are very different shows, but I think neither of them have really fulfilled their potential (Though I am enjoying both).

Frankly I just want more Lower Decks. :lol:

Agreed with Devlin on Lower Decks.

I've been thoroughly enjoying this season, it's been the most Trek-like season yet, and genuinely feels like they're solving space mysteries and doing space science for the first time since the series started.

One thing they have to do now though is get the ship and crew up-to-date. They're 800 years out of sync and they really need to make sure the ship gets some upgrades. I can only sustain the belief that Discovery can hold it's own against far more advanced ships for so long.

It'd be like medieval swordsmen rocking up today and somehow beating modern day troops and equipment. Cool at first, but not believable for too long.
