Well, that was fun
This is designated a [+] thread, so you can use the other thread to talk about how much you hate Discovery. This thread is for fans who want to take about what's happening in the show.
Oh. So .... I think it's funny.Important question: when will Spock shave off his beard?
I would pay cash money to watch Anson Mount in several more seasons, or in his own spinoff. So perfect. Probably the best addition to Season 2.Since Anson Mount is only contracted for one year, I'm guessing Pike leaves at the end of this season. That'll be a shame, as I really like him. He's more Kirk than Kirk!
I had been going for Spock. And then I thought, hey, maybe it's Burnham? Because it's all about her (JK, I like her, but there was that reference, and it would make sense?), but now ... dunno? Maybe a different member of the Disco?What are your current prevailing theories? What's (who is) the Red Angel?
No. I think that there is an issue with the AI taking over, but Section 31 will always be there, causing problems. Seriously, you think Star Fleet would learn their lesson one of these times.
I'm assuming they would swarm at that point.That minefield... could they have shot the mines?
Agreed.I loved the fistfight on the space station. There was one moment where it went a little too John Woo for me, but otherwise it was a really well shot, well choreographed fight. One thing Star Trek has always suffered from is the most godawful, slow, wooden fistfight choreography. This was really good.
And Anson Mount starring Pike Enterprise with Spock aboard. It would be so good! Basically it would be TOS, but with modern filming.I would pay cash money to watch Anson Mount in several more seasons, or in his own spinoff. So perfect. Probably the best addition to Season 2.
Well, they can't be *completely* dead. Section 31 first appears in DS9. So, they survive in some sense at least long enough to try to recruit Dr. Bashir.
I have a feeling it'll turn out to be Tilly, but I'm not sure why I think that.What are your current prevailing theories? What's (who is) the Red Angel?
Logically, it would make sense for them to be working through how Section 31 went from being a legitimate, if unconventional, arm of Starfleet in this era to the nigh-mythical entirely-covert entity it had become by DS9. Current events seem like a perfectly reasonable stepping stone along that path.Well, they can't be *completely* dead. Section 31 first appears in DS9.

Maybe speed wasn't the issue - it was more that a tiny shuttle flying out of Klingon space is less likely to be a diplomatic incident than a whole starship flying in towards one of their holy sites.Pike certainly lives the Starfleet ideals.
Discovery's shuttles seem to definitely move at the speed of the plot - they make a big point to mycelium jump the DSC to Boreth, but the shuttle flies to the Section 31 ship with regular warp drive. Well, maybe the ship was already en route to intercept the Discovery at Boreth when the crew started to fight against Control?
