    Great podcast, and enjoyed the latest episode.

    Now that Discovery can no longer be mentioned, can we please cancel the show and replace it with a Captain Pike series? After two seasons I had more feels for Capt. Pike and #1 than any of the Disco crew. Given that they are just plot elements for Burnham’s story, this speaks volumes about how I’ve bonded with Discovery as Star Trek.

    The Discovery has been removed from the timeline, has no bearing on canon at all, except to inform a corporate restructure of Section 31, and the sophomore finale was a brilliant way to sign off on that story and those characters. It closes a narrative arc that was profoundly unsettling for the federation and the Klingon Empire.

    My biggest irritation with the latest episode of Discovery was confirmation of Tilley’s diminishing status within the show from engagingly weird wunderkind to an admittedly better written, but still one-dimensional Wesley “Deus ex Machina” Crusher. Tilley has gone from being rounded character to the BOFF that they all turn to when something weird requires a weirder approach to fix or avoid the consequences. Cue, weirdo+techno babble, aaaaand problem fixed or avoided! “Good work Tilley!”, cried the crew.
    “I hope my Mom approves of me now”, says Tilley.

    I totally loved the look of the Constitution bridge and general interior of the Enterprise and I have no issue the any of the retconned approach to redesigns in any of the post-TOS TV series or movies. If Gene Roddenberry had access to special fx tech that the people currently creating Trek have, you can bet he would probably have out-Abrams-ed JJ, and out-Kurtzmanned Alex in terms of look and feel.
