As a gay lady, I’m sick of the shots fired at Disco to do with BYG tropes. So it would have been okay if Culber was a woman? I know how disheartening it is to see no rep or killed off rep, but at the same time, writers can’t wrap characters in cotton wool JUST because they are gay. I’m glad they had that rep for ssn 1, it was an important one for ST. And after all the twists in ssn 1, can’t ppl know that nothing meets the eye in Disco? It’s only just getting started. There’s more to come.

I know this is gonna sound awful, but I’d rather they bring in Mirror Hugh and have Paul try to form a relationship with him from the ground up than a perfect loving revival of Prime Hugh. I find bringing characters back to life after you’ve killed them cheap. This way isn’t. It is a fundamentally different way we can see how their relationship would form under different circumstances. I’d love it. I know many fans won’t agree though. Multiverse Culmets > Culmets revival.

I really want them to find Prime Lorca I want Jason Isaacs back [Who wouldn’t? Except Jason these-uniforms-gimme-a-daily-wedgie Isaacs maybe] [And why don’t the costume designers use Velcro instead of SEWING PEOPLE INTO THEIR COSTUMES – let those people free, they can help each other rip-a-zip in and out] Because I think it would be very good to genuinely address PTSD as they have not yet done Who better than Isie to do that good acting. Angsty one minute, all business the next ….

I’m really torn with my feelings on the season finale. On the one hand, I feel like the Klingons were convinced, the war resolved, and issues tied up all too quickly. On the other hand, I feel like it was completely in tune with the heart of Star Trek. At its core, Star Trek is about what our society aspires to accomplish: resolution of conflicts and peaceful coexistence based on efficient diplomacy, tolerance, and logic.

Admiral Katrina Cornwell is my favourite Admiral since Admiral Ross in Deep Space Nine. Despite her choice to try to explode planets rather than explore them, she for the most part is a competent flag officer.

I really enjoyed James Frain’s portrayal of Sarek, and I really hope we get to see him and Amanda in more scenes next season. They are such an intriguing couple.

 I just realized something about Choose Your Pain. Lorca’s cell on L’rell’s ship has zero loyal Federation members in it (save for possibly that prisoner who was killed at the start). Mudd is an opportunist who has already been turned by the Klingons, Tyler is actually Voq in disguise, and Lorca is a really Mirror Lorca.

There is nothing feminist about giving a female rapist a redemption arc. It is disgusting, it is toxic and it is disturbing that they invalidated a male rape victim’s story for the sake of a plot twist. I’m appalled.

I would love to see Romulans get the spotlight they deserve by now. It’s really upsetting that we’re not gonna get that in Discovery because of a dialogue line thought up 50 years ago. I love how much depth and history the franchise has, but sometimes the sheer amount of canon that’s been written by so many different people of varying talent through so many different eras is just crushing. Even if Disco wasn’t a prequel I feel like it’d be really hobbled by it.

The twist at the end of the season was great, though I don’t know what they are gonna do with the enterprise, as it will probably only be in for an episode and really undo all the hype.
