Weeks later, I’m still salty about Philippa Georgiou’s death, and now about Ellen Landry’s. At this rate, I’ll be a salt pillar before long.
Michelle Yeoh and her Star Trek phone case meeting Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla during their visit to Malaysia.
I feel like a lot of people are defending Philippa’s death by saying that the show is called Discovery, but you can write off a character without killing them. Her death was the result of bad writing and tv tropes that should have died a long time ago
Discovery is fantastic so far, but it just felt more like Star Trek with Captain Georgiou. There was no war, only exploration. Lorca is the more fascinating character, but Georgiou is the better Captain without a doubt in my mind.
I’m a bit disappointed that they killed off Georgiou right after the pilot. I’d been rooting for a female captain after Janeway and I was absolutely hyped to see a female captain AND first officer at the same time. Hopefully we get to see more of her in flashbacks, Michelle Yeoh is such a great actress.
Still extremely bitter about Captain Georgiou. I swear to the wormhole gods, she better come back again this season (and not just for a split second), through flashbacks, Mirror Universe, Jesus resurrection, whatever! Anything!
I’ve been really surprised at the fandom’s reaction to Philippa’s “death” – that everyone’s taking it at face value? It seems obvious to me that she isn’t really dead.
