    My initial thoughts. I’ll probably have more to say once @g-h-brothers and @ani-hatzis and whoever else chime in.

    This finale fell flat on me. It’s like they shoehorned in a million loose ends that had to be tied. Sure they explained why we never knew about Burnham as Spock’s adopted sister but because of how everything was rushed, that final scene before the two didn’t have an emotional impact on me. Neither did the scene between Culber and Stamets because they totally skipped necessary steps before they reconcile.

    And I guess Season 3 of Discovery is going to be what some were asking for: A series set far in the future?

    Also, why didn’t they tie in the other two Short Treks?

    @g-h-brothers, You must be happy that they didn’t right out say “This is the Borg”, that it was only heavily implied?

    Am I the only one who was disappointed with the finale even though it made me laugh quite a bit?

    Even the overall theme was family seemed shoehorned in as they repeated the word multiple times in a short period of time.

    I can’t praise the season finale enough. For me entertainment has been as perfect as it gets. Could have been a movie blockbuster as well. There was everything I expect. It’s been the best season finale of Star Trek, and one of my favorite episodes ever.

    First and foremost, there was this epic excitement building up from the first scene. I could barely keep myself on the seat, that’s how thrilled I have been. I’ve also admired how much essence of Star Trek was at display. Starfleet’s finest crews. So much collaboration and sacrifice. I almost cried a few times. The last scene of Pike and Conway was heartbreaking, I will miss her character so much. Then there was Stamets and Culber, and I fully understand that Culber realized only in that very moment how much Stamets means to him. He probably returned from Enterprise and intended to have a talk with Stamets first, but everything changed when he saw him in sick bay.

    Beautiful shots of the Enterprise again. They also reached a new level for space battles in Star Trek on par with Battlestar Galactica (remake) and Star Wars, in my opinion far more realistic than what we normally see in other trek shows or even movies. There was a true feeling of destruction and violence. It was also great how they did cut to the combat scenes with Control / Leland vs. Georgiou and Nhan, the moment the gravitational system failed. Awesome.

    I also had to giggle and laugh a few times, e.g. Georgiou welcoming Control, Reno talking back to Saru, Saru citing Sun Tzu, or Spock asking “You detected an anomaly, captain?” with that gentle irony that’s so typical for him.

    There was awesome music and special effects. Michael’s jump out of the hangar, but even more so her first time jump were stunning and beautiful. And so were the effects when Discovery was pulled into the wormhole. Wasn’t this a heartwarming reference to Star Trek – The Movie Picture? Speaking of references, the episode had so many, but one of my favorites have been at the end, when Spock walked over to his science station. There was even this ridiculous “squint-through-a-pane” device. 😆

    This episode was packed with so many fine things, I could keep writing and writing. Of course they also had to answer quite a few questions regarding canon, and they did so. I wonder if sending Discovery into the future was a response to the canon extremists. But then again, I’ve thought that Georgiou would be in the new Section 31 show, but she is now in the future. That will be very interesting.

    After watching it for three times, and appreciating so much Pike, Number One, and the Enterprise, I wonder if they are going to pull off a new Enterprise show around Pike. It was like the perfect spin-off from here. I would love that. I’ve grown very fond of them.

    I already felt almost sorry after the first season that the nay sayers and haters missed out so much. But this season was spectacular. To them I say: Hab SoSlI’Quch!

    Can’t wait for the next season and the new shows! For the Trekkie in me a dream came true. To everyone who participated in this show: majQa’!

    Of course that’s Pike, Number One, Spock, and the Enterprise 😅
