Goofs

When Burnham is in the process of an experiment to capture the Red Angel, Pike orders Owosekun to beam her to Sickbay. Site-to-site transportation technology was assumed not to exist in the Pre-Next Generation Timeline, key word, "assumed". However, we found out in "Such Sweet Sorrow pt. II" that Discovery had basically been wiped out of the history books, including all of her advanced technology and any tech that had come from Section 31. See more »

Quotes

Michael Burnham: What if it doesn't work?
Spock: Were you to perish, I would be charged with killing a Starfleet officer again. It would therefore be ideal if you survived.
Michael Burnham: Such a way with words, Spock.

A step backwards
23 March 2019 | by kastrinoSee all my reviews

Although I was appalled by most episodes of the first season, I admit Season 2 was a major improvement. This episode feels like it came from unused material from Season 1. No focus in the story, lots of overacting by Sonequa, endless time travel mumbo jumbo and a largely disappointing finale.
