14 episodes are not enough
12 April 2019 | by XweAponXSee all my reviews

But what episodes... Although this episode was not as densely packed as the previous 12, it is relevant.

We get to see a familiar bridge on a familiar ship, but it looks slightly... unfamiliar.

Ah, so what! It looks great.

Tilly's little visitation during Short Treks becomes relevant here. There is also reference to "Calypso" to some extent, because at some point Discovery exists in the distant future with an AI running things. The question about how this happens might be answered in this episode, or maybe not.

We have seen technology that may evolve into the Borg in this season, we even visited Talos IV. We even saw Pike come face to face with that man from The Menagerie, and he accepts this. Spock went through The Mutara Sector before Michael caught up with him, an area that will have special significance to him at a later time.

But this is merely the calm before a huge storm, and the Enterprise and Discovery are right in the middle of it, preparing for what could be another Wolf 359, before Wolf 359 ever happened. And long before Locutus, there was Leland. Is there a shred of humanity left there?

Meanwhile, The Red Angel still has two more signals to go, but which Red Angel?
