The show has settled into a nice little three-star rhythm now. Nothing great so far but a perfectly fun watch.
Some more random thoughts:
Starfleet really ought to give their captains better protection, especially during wartime. Lorca gets sent out in a rickety, Blue Midget style shuttle with just one pilot as security?
Pretty sure that whole kidnapping was a ruse, with the kid that Lorca rescued really being the Torchbearer Klingon in an elaborate disguise. No way that a Klingon ship captures an important Starfleet captain at this time and then just saunters along, business as usual, without all available warships coming to their side.
I don’t know about the swearing. It just feels wrong for Star Trek, like hearing your teacher swear. Or maybe they should just lean into the curve. Like at the end when Michael ejects the comatose creature into space by itself, it could have not miraculously woken up (having been re-hydrated by the empty void of nothingness) but just get smashed by a passing asteroid. Cut to Tilly - “…fuck.”
What is the deal with Ensign Daft Punk who is always hanging out on the bridge? I want his/her story.
Pretty sure at the end the surly science guy told the friendly medical guy “you are in danger” rather than “you were in danger” - or was I imagining things?
