    It's just weird to me that Saru and Stamets are so far back. Saru's been there since the very first episode, and Stamets was Treks first big openly gay main character. Maybe he got shifted back after Kevin Spacey got acquitted for molesting Rapp? Either way, Book sucks. They wouldn't give Kassidy Yates second billing on a DS9 poster.

    That said, Culver deserves to be first officer, they should have put him through a crash course in command stuff while Discovery was being retrofitted. XO Tilly was stupid.

    I would have also accepted Mona Lisa Piggy.

    If you wanna go over with with tweezers, I guess.
    If they flipped it so the whiteys were up front, you and I would both be like "heeeyy...:wtf:".
    Well, I'm not a Book fan, but he does have the superpower of making the spore drive work without needing augmentation.

    I can live with Book being so prominent if we accept that Discovery is really Star Trek: Burnham and not really about the Discovery at all, but then Saru should be up front too, since his changing relationship with Michael has been a major pilot point for the entire series.

    Kinda sucks we don't get Vance at all. Guinan used to get included in some TNG cast promos.

    It occurs to me that obviously Burnham has gotten it on with Book and had a thing with Tyler. It is implicit that Stametz and Culber are doing the deed (although as an old-time couple, maybe not so much any more.)

    But it seems like none of the rest of the crew have gotten any action for the duration of the series. Or am I just missing things?

    Like in most of the other pre-streaming series, I'd say it was implied or expressly stated that at one point or another, every regular got some action, whether it was holographic, ghost-candle, or otherwise.

    Detmer looked like she was about to get some action during the Mudd time loop episode, and the Emperor banged some Orions if I'm remembering correctly.

    And the synth body that Grays consciousness was put into was almost certainly "fully functional" since it was based on Picard's, which itself was based on Data's, so it's very likely Adira had more than just a symbiont inside themselves at some point. :bergman:

    Curls aren't a good look on Tilly (or most white chicks in general, IMHO).

    I can't stand Book the character and I don't like the actor either. I was hoping we'd seen the last of him, but I guess not.

    Rachael Dolezal probably soured you on the idea.
    Not me.
    Curly, wavy, straight, every color, half bald, all bald, everything. Everything.

    No, I felt that way before anybody knew who she was.

    I will amend my comment to say that I don't find tight curls attractive on white chicks. :yes:

    This. The hair and makeup staff responsible for that atrocity should all be fired and never allowed to work in the industry again.

    I was thinking of that time loop episode last night.

    If nothing else, it was better than the TNG time loop episode with them crashing into a Frasier cameo. We got some actual character development/growth out of both Burnham and Stamets.

    I actually thought Season 4 was pretty decent. It atleast tried to invoke the spirit of Trek. The Andromedia setting is stupid. The ship mushroom drive is still stupid. And nothing about the Doctor's relationship with his new adopted kid feels earned or real. But overall, it wasn't the worst thing ever.

    Also - I'm not sure why Tilly disappeared from the show at one point. But her Starfleet Academy story wasn't that bad and they probably should have followed up more on that.

    Once I realized it was TAS's "One Of Our Planets Is Missing" rubber-banded into a whole season arc, I enjoyed it a lot more.
    And they don't come out and say the mystery species is the Kelvans,...but it's Kelvans.

    Her body collapsed under its own mass, becoming a micro singularity. After some time she absorbed enough additional matter to achieve fusion. After achieving fusion she expanded larger than she was before the collapse. Eventually she will go through enough cycles and end in a micro supernova.

    Actually, she'll be the lead character in the new series called Star Trek: Hair Salon Disasters.

    Sean said he's a Romulan guy, who's appeared before and he called the guys name (which I don't remember.

    While I'm thinking of that breakdown, the curious for details should check it out. He makes some very interesting observations I wouldn't have noticed (and I presume that, if they imply what they should imply some folks won't like the implications.



    Also, apparently one of the execs claimed that they WILL resolve the questions created by "Calypso"
