At one point, a call can be heard for "Cadet Decker". This may refer to Willard Decker, who became captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise in Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) (played by Stephen Collins). Willard Decker is also the son of Matt Decker, who was mentioned as one of Starfleet's most decorated captains in Star Trek: Discovery: Choose Your Pain (2017). Considering that Discovery takes place a decade before The Original Series, and therefore 18 years before The Motion Picture, the time line would be appropriate. See more »


Michael Burnham: I need to know something. You put on a facade. Like everything that's happened to you just washes off. I actually envied that about you. But when you saw that Klingon... Who is she to you?
Ash Tyler: I think you already know.
Michael Burnham: You were her prisoner.

-An excellent episode.
14 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

  • It was a good episode although i have doubts about seeing Discovery exploring parallel dimensions and unknown galaxies in the next episodes(excepting the well known mirror universe ,off course),because the show would be too awesome but the war with the new and stupid Klingon cannibals and weird sexual relationships are more interesting than this kind of stuff for the producers and the new fans,but this seems to be a common tendency these days in any sci-fi production,unfortunately.Another thing that bothers me is the inconsistency of cadet Tilly as a character.In the first episode she can't even have a normal conversation and now she is already as a real auntie for the rest of the crew.The look of Airiam is way too goofy ,she looks like a smurf with an iron helmet,more suitable for a parody .
