Star Trek Discovery: S1 Ep6 Lethe

Description: The USS Discovery crew is intrigued by new addition, Lt. Ash Tyler. Sarek seeks Burnham’s help, rekindling memories from her past. Admiral Cornwell questions Lorca’s tactics.

Logical

The developing relationship between Michael and Tilly is wonderful and has an opportunity to grow further in this episode. It’s clear Tilly respects Michael and wants to learn from the officer. She’s unlike any character I’ve come across in the franchise before; Tilly is geeky in a way that sets her apart from other crew. It’s refreshing.

Lorca’s PTSD is beginning to show. It’s quite amazing the contrast of the intimacy to the violence. I’m actually loving this instability within a Captain; and is something they’ve never shown before. Both Pickard and Sisko would have most likely shown this level of PTSD over time.

Even Vulcan’s have daddy issues. Such a brilliant storyline between Michael and Sarek. I love the dream sequences, the reveal and the aftermath. Wonderful writing and it marks the first time I’ve been happy about it’s placement in the timeline.

Erm, okay Kat; can you honestly tell me you didn’t see that coming?! That was a bit rubbish, but I’m more intrigued by Lorca’s response; is he in on it? I get a sneaky feeling he knew she’d be taken, or that he even suspected she would be killed.

Paul, Paul, Paul. I love the engineer. He uses words like ‘groovy’ and ‘noggin’ and totally rips the piss out of Michael. He’s wonderful and his sarcasm is the funniest thing on Star Trek, ever. I need a Paul in my life.

Illogical

‘Your History is well documented’ – Lorca to Michael. Well, it isn’t really is it?! If it were, we’d already know about Michael.

Sarek saved Michael’s life by sharing a horocrux, sorry, katra with Michael; meaning they are intrinsically bonded. Again, really?!

The cheesy Barry White-Like bedroom music?? There was sexual tension between Lorca and Kat anyway; did you really need to cheapen it. Equally, I don’t feel Kat’s anger is justified. Even if you suspected; you wouldn’t put him in charge of such a ship.
