Discovery season two will air on Netflix on Friday, January 18. Does anyone know how many episodes there will be this season? That goes against what we've learned so far. David Benjamin Tomlinson also appears throughout the season as Linus. There's been much speculation about how. I am fanwanking that Control forgot that Ash wasn't entirely human and stabbed him where it should be fatal but forgot that because he's a reconfigured Klingon his organs aren't where they should be.
Tilly works with technologically-augmented Lieutenant Commander Airiam to sift through the Sphere's information on Kaminar: they learn that the post Vahar'ai Kelpiens were once Kaminar's dominant species and nearly eradicated the Ba'ul, with the latter only surviving by using their superior technology to cull Kelpiens before they lose their threat ganglia. Follow us on Twitter and on. Sorry Leland, but I'm going to cackle when you eventually get tossed out, and Georgiou rightfully assumes the throne as queen. Kirk didn't know why, for example. Kirk and his crew did not use it.
I'm loving Spock back and sane. A looped transmission suggests the population departed Earth during. Number One is likely the acting captain until Pike gets back if there's even a need for a captain while the ship is offline. And yet, the overall plot feels lacking. Several other recurring guests also return from the first season, including as , as , as L'Rell, and as Katrina Cornwell.
And they were only just getting into your backstory and explaining who she was not a flat-out android like Data, but apparently a hybrid of some kind? Both of those tie-ins are a nice link to canon. Control seems pretty sentient at this point; what does it need the rest of the info for? The Enterprise is docked for repairs, so Pike is still officially the captain but has been temporarily reassigned to the Discovery. But he is not Spock. I do love that Hugh got to have his confrontation with Tyler, though. I was more interested in the monster chasing him in the woods.
So Airiam was definitely a mostly human brain and lower jaw walking around in a part android body, not a mostly android with some human memories. Although maybe the writers have found a second pole for the galaxy to revolve around; I literally can't believe that Cornwell said it was Pike, specificially, and not the Enterprise and its crew as a whole, that they wanted to save. Another example is that Deep Space Nine episode where Bashir replaced part of a Vedic's brain with a positronic subsitute and it didn't work out. However, Saru is the first of his kind to ever leave his planet, so he alone knows that, contrary to Kelpien belief, there is a reason to live and a cause to fight for. Control-Leland boards Discovery and is defeated by Georgiou with magnetism, allowing Section 31's fleet to be destroyed. I actually enjoy this Spock, since I've pretty much accepted that he isn't going to have any kind of resemblance to Original Spock or even the Spock from the rebooted films.
For example, in Star Trek 2009 : Bully:. Just a moment of research would show that the patent leather boots your mother regularly wears are favored by Rigellian prostitutes. If so, why is no one on the show wondering about that? I guess I can see why that caused a rift, but still a bit predictable. Van Sprang had worked with Berg and Harberts on the series , and they had been trying to find a character for him to play throughout production on the first season. Finally, Reno adds a welcome dose of down-to-earth wit, since the technobabble-o-meter has been dialed up to 11 on more than one occasion in this season already. After this revelation, the Blob swallows up Tilly and releases psychotropic spores into the air, resulting in some entertaining hallucinogenic horseplay with Stamets and Reno. I know it's scifi and I'm there to suspend disbelief, but come on.
Leland can wipe out a whole security detail in seconds, but he can't stab Ash to death properly. Vina's message of let Spock and Burnham go nicely telegraphed in to the shuttle returning. That is not how data and database behave. That was allover the place - i. I actually enjoy this Spock, since I've pretty much accepted that he isn't going to have any kind of resemblance to Original Spock or even the Spock from the rebooted films.
Since this show does not do literal razors s. They are soon attacked by that same probe, now upgraded with future technology, which uses their shuttle's computer system to secretly infect Airiam. Pike sees a future where he is severely disabled in an accident, but chooses to take the crystal to serve the greater good. It makes their eventual fate. It's just bad writing, baby. Pike uses the Ba'ul's technology to trigger Vahar'ai in all Kelpiens, hoping the two species can instead work towards a peaceful solution once the Kelpiens are freed and learn the truth about their past from Saru's priestess sister Siranna. Control is heavily damaged and its nanoprobes are reduced to a singular command: Assimilate At least, that's kinda how the novels did it, except the probes were used by a very advanced, benevolent but isolationist alien species.
