shows the rig they used for one of the fight scenes.
Lol watched the whole season and have watched Hell on Wheels all the way through. For whatever reason I didn't recognize Anson Mount till I read that article.
Another thing I forgot to mention - time crystals? Are you serious?
Yeah, that was when the season took a decidedly downward turn for me. I could almost handle the idea of the Red Angel jumping around in time, but as soon as they explained it away with a magic crystal, I started to check out.
Warp drive? Are you serious?
Transporters? Are you serious?
Pointy ears? Are you serious?
Okay, maybe pointy ears.
But how to you explain the lack of time travel via crystal in every other Trek? It's not like the Federation can just tell the Klingons to forget all about them.
Exactly. They base warp drive and transporters on science. But now all of a sudden they have a planet full of time crystals run by Klingons? The entirety of Trek should have always been about time travelers then. It makes no damn sense.
What! Captain Pike was Bohannon? I was a big fan of HOW and I didn't notice that either.
There were certainly plenty of time travel episodes in every ST series. Kirk in particular was always in trouble with the Time Police.
"17 Temporal Violations, the biggest file on record, the man was a menace"
Although in retrospect, he really didn't seem to do much time travel trouble-making compared to the rest of the Trek Universe. Sure, he undid the future of earth (just once!), scooped up an alien in the past, maybe a stray fighter pilot. But that's peanuts compared to shenanigans committed in the series' that followed.
But I agree with the root complaint. If there's been a Klingon planet of "Time Crystals" conveniently sitting there the entire time, all temporal hell should have broken out long before now.
(One of the many 'quirks' of Discovery that is made palatable by simply not considering this the Prime universe, even if they say it is)
I am firmly convinced that Discovery is in an alternate timeline of the Prime Universe due to all the time shenanigans of Mama Burnham and Michael.
(And Temporal Investigations thought that James Kirk was a menace.)
That's putting the cart before the horse; the time crystals were not created by the crew of the discovery. If one were trying to reconcile the timelines, one might presume that the actions of the crew resulted in the suppression of the time crystals, leading to Kirk et al.
Time crystals might have been necessary for Discovery's time adventures, but other ST crews have been able to flit about in time just fine with out them.
Ditto. Now I’m going to have to rewatch S2.
I enjoyed it all — binged it over a 3 day period so I missed a lot.
Took me a while to get to it but I enjoyed it. Yeah, there were some things that didn't make the most sense in the world but I'm not shaking my fist, yelling into the void about it.
I recognized Anson Mount but his lack of a southern accent threw me a little bit. I spent the last two or three episodes wondering who hot Number One was. Finally looked it up - Rebecca Romijn.
Time to drop CBS All Access until next year.
And Ensign Tilley being an expert in all things sciencey? I love all things Trek...but Travelers is my new go to sci fi series. If course it is cancelled.
