Star Trek Discovery (2017)

More like suppressed those particulairy memories…


#1746

Call me when Discovery surpasses “Genesis.”


#1747

Hah, think I remember that one. Something causes the crew to “de-evolve” into weird sub humans or some crazy shit.


#1748

I cannot recall anything to do with those photos. OMG! POSSIBLE TNG EPISODE I HAVE NOT SEEN!!1


#1749

You just blocked it out. It’s one of those ill-considered seventh season “we’re running out of ideas” episodes.

Also, you never get as good a look at the character during the episode as you do in those pictures.

I thought the “evolution within the same generation” thing that happened in this last episode was pretty damned far fetched, even for this series. It’s pure fantasy.


#1751

You’re referring to Saru? My understanding is that there was no evolution—just revelation. Kelpians thought that the condition he experienced was fatal. Rather, it was a transformation from their state of constant fear to one without constant fear. They just had to endure the condition, with it ending with their ganglia falling off. All previous Kelpians were culled/harvested before they made it that far.

So due to the fact that he was the one and only member of his species to make it off his home planet, this is only now being discovered? Hmm.


#1753

That’s how I understood it. Alternatively, depending on how the Kelpians evolved (engineered to present state or conquered), this information may have been wiped from their species knowledge. I highly suspect that a “liberating Kelpians” plot, and the conflict with the prime directive, is a possible future plotline.

This episode of “Star Trek, Discovery of our Hidden Emotions", aka “STE” (Star Trek Emo) was too much for me. With every chance encounter between crew members being mined for maximum situational angst, it leaves me feeling like half the crew is stoned, exploring every moment for inner beauty & pain.

As soon as Captain Emo himself showed up (Tyler), I had had enough and turned it off. These writers have even managed to make me dislike Georgiou. What a devolution from an amazing Season 1.


#1755

Couldn’t disagree more. This has been a solid season so far and much better consistently than number one which was a hodgepodge of multiple show runners/producers.


#1756

Yeah, I’ve had fun with it. While nothing has made me drop my jaw in amazement, it’s been an enjoyable ride.
