    You know what to do!

    Just as a reminder, if you don’t want your comments included in the GeekDad post, just say so when you add your impressions, etc.

    I’ll be writing the post on Saturday, starting at about 2 pm PDT, so you have until then to comment if you want it included in the GeekDad post.

    I won’t be able to watch until really late tonight, so I’ll comment tomorrow.

    LLAP!

    Am I the only one in COMPLETE and utter denial that Pike will be leaving at the conclusion of this season? Every passing week being better than the last just makes that fact harder to deal with 🙁 So glad we got to spend a significant amount of time with this character for the first time in over 50 years. Jeff Hunter only doing the one episode, and Bruce Greenwood only being a supporting character in Star Trek ’09 always made me feel Pike unfairly got the short end of the stick. Glad we could finally right that wrong.</p>

    Uh oh Jules. Control saying “struggle is pointless” sounds a hell of a lot like “resistance is futile” to me! And then an injection of nanites? Yep. It’s looking like we’re 1001% heading in that direction. Blah.

    Sorry for my late response. My fridge died last week and it caused me to get behind a day for the entire week.

    Okay. The topic at hand!

    1) As I wrote the other week, Pike is quickly becoming my favourite captain. Like 99 per cent there. I’m going to wait until the season is finished to crown him such. I am really going to hate to see him go. As @jaimie said in another thread, it would be nice if he got his own show. I’d watch the heck out of that.

    2) If Control turns out not to be the origins of the Borg, I’ll be a little put off. It fits so perfectly and there is no reason for use to see physical Borg at the end of this season.They can just do a quick scene with the Queen making some of her collective, finally giving us a canon origin story.

    3) There were so many great human stories this week. It was very good that they mainly focused on Burnham and her mother, while also using it to give us more story for other characters. Like seeing Spock and Burnham reconcile even more, Culber being able to give a bit more about how he is feeling by giving some insight into how Burnham’s mom is likely to be feeling after all of her experiences, Pike being the perfect mix of firm in his orders while exhibiting compassion by giving Burnham something to do even if it’s not what she wants, Tyler showing his thinking isn’t as grey as people may think and has lines that cannot be crossed, Georgiou has compassion somewhere buried in that facade built by having lived in a Mirror Universe, and Burnham’s mom willingness to sacrifice everything to save humanity (more the needs of the many).

    Another thing I really enjoyed, how the crew supports each other and lifts each other up during very challenging times. Everyone is there for everyone else to support them in the best ways possible so that they can move forward and get done what needs to be done while not diminishing or dismissing the pain and trauma they are each working through. There is one caveat to this and that is the Stamets/Culber relationship but my hope is that Stamets will soon make an honest attempt to try to understand what Culber is going through

    I’m also very glad that Tyler didn’t die because that would have been rage-inducing.
