    they must have had a different writer last night, that episode was fantastic, easily the best one of the new season (at least in my opinion)

    i'll have to go back and re-watch to see all the ships trapped in there, and nice nod to lost, was that sawyer at the end?

    Same here. This season has been a waste for me but this episode rocked.

    I saw Discovery from 2001, the Lunar Lander, an Apollo capsule labled Apollo 100, the back half of an Oceanic Airliner, plus various flying saucers. But I probably missed or didn't know a lot of others.

    Maybe it was the same whale which will in the 29th century assist Starship UK in it's escape from the sun's flares that are killing the Earth? :) :D


    Of course not, even if it survived Leela & co's assault.

    The Electric Light Orchestra spaceship was also in there:

    The credited writer was Dan Vebber, who's written a number of other episodes. And all episodes are extensively written/revised in "the room" anyway, so they basically all have the same writers working on them.
