    Anyone watch these?

    So far, we've had the eps Runaway, Calypso and The Brightest Star.

    I liked 3rd ep "The Brightest Star" the best, so far. Was the most insightful, by far.

    I saw the first 2. I hadn’t realized the 3rd came out.

    Same place you watch Discovery. For the US, generally speaking this is going to be CBS All Access.

    I saw the first one and was waiting for someone to tell me when the next one came out. Guess I missed it. ;)

    Ok, the last one w/Harry Mudd was released.

    Was decent. The ending had a nice touch and was an homage to anyone who watched the 2nd Harry Mudd TOS ep.

    Originally, when there were only 3 eps, I felt that each ep was better than the previous. Not sure how I feel about #4. Wasn't the worst but I'm not sure it was the best either.

    Maybe not the best note for them to go out on. It was a nice change of pace, but it might have been better placed in the middle of the run...

    Was interesting that again, none of the main cast was included, as far as I could tell.

    I wonder we'll see the USS De Milo again.

    For some reason, I didn't recognize the captor as a Tellarite. My best memory as to how they look is from Enterprise.

    Calypso was weird... I think I need to watch it again to really understand what was going on. Wasn't that Discovery?

    I enjoyed them all, I think Brightest Star was the best of the lot. Calypso was well... Different. I liked it, but it makes me really wonder why Discovery was abandoned, and how long it took the ship's computer to evolve like it did.

    I believe he was speaking specifically about Escape Artist (which had just aired), in which again (after Calypso) none of the main cast was indeed included...

    I liked Calypso the best, closely followed by The Brightest Star. I liked The Escape Artist the least, but it wasn't too bad.

    Just watched these. I guess the 1000 year thing
    is less surprising after watching Season 2 and the forward time jump.

    And it has a subtle but awesome call back to ST: TMP. These guys are doing their homework on Trek History..
