Yes, it was.this is a remarkable episode because it's one of those Star Trek's golden moments, where grand things happen. I'd even say that it's one of the best episodes I've seen in three seasons!
I liked that the Discovery crew came together in the end, with both Michael and Sylvia fitting into their new slots.
Even more surprising than the reunification of the Vulcans and Romulans was the apparently messy divorce between Ni'Var and the Federation. No doubt a lot of finger-pointing followed the Big Boom, but the Ni'Varans apparently accepted the blame for catastrophe. They don't want anyone reopening the wound, although rejecting new evidence which may get them off the hook seemed, well, illogical.
Michael's reunification with her mother was a surprise. Imagine, two 900-somethings being on the same planet at the same time. Small galaxy!
Yes, I agree, there was a lot to take in and I think the Tilly promotion and mother-daughter re-union could even have been left to a different episode. To me, this was a natural progression from the events seen in Star Trek: Picard (and I never thought we would be in the Kelvin universe, although I see that could easily have been a possibility because they hadn't yet diverged when they left).It filled two big holes in the Whatever Happened To Puzzle by updating the status of the Vulcans and Romulans. (They couldn't have renamed Vulcan Romulcan or Vulcalan?) The episode also made real progress on solving the mystery of The Burn.
To me, it wasn't really explained what she was doing on Ni'var. Ms. Burnham is neither Vulcan nor Romulan, so why is she a Sister of Lost Causes?Michael's reunification with her mother was a surprise.
I also agree. She wants to be part of the crew, but clearly the last year has changed her, so much so that she will never fit back in. However, the potted history on Michael that her mother gave, pretty much foreshadowed by my comments about her here last episode, show that she is someone who never fitted in to military service and following orders, and probably never could.Although Michael claims that she's part of the crew, she isn't. Not really. Not while she's living in Discovery's 'trunk' looking at space passing by in reverse.
I hope not.Does this mean Discovery will never go back ?
That is certainly going too far, but I'll accept it as an opinion of people who never met him, and of a sister who only knew him until his twenties.Spock was the man he was because of his big sister oh please.
I think we will need to wait to find out, however someone speculated last week that The Burn could have been caused by the Mirror Universe as an attack. As she is from the Mirror Universe, she therefore possibly more 'in tune' with time distortion effects resulting from crossovers. But who knows? I certainly think we will know before the end of Season 3 because I think the link between her visions and The Burn will become the major plot point.But she is not the only one who travelled in time. Why not the others ?
I have to shoot off to an eye exam, so I don't have time for a full review. But let me say that this is one grand episode, because it proofs that the Kelvin timeline didn't happen in this universe. Spock lived in this one to his olden days and saw the unification of two tribes, Vulcan and Romulans. And the most curious thing about this is, is that the Vulcans are more strict and harsh while Romulans has softened up over the years.
There are also a few connections to the Picard series, but I don't have a time to speak about them until later one. However this is a remarkable episode because it's one of those Star Trek's golden moments, where grand things happen. I'd even say that it's one of the best episodes I've seen in three seasons!
You'll have to explain that one. It is definitely among one of the many parallel Universes that Worf encountered following Stardate 47391.2.Even though it might follow the events in the original trek timeline , This still is not really the original prime Star Trek Universe , for practical reasons. It cannot be so. I think of it as an alternate Prime timeline .

So anyway, what about the C-plot in which Saru has seen fit to promote Ensign Tilly to acting First Officer?
Also, it is like Riker leaving the Enterprise and Picard appointing Ensign Wesley Crusher.
Very possibly true, but not explicated in anything shown (I guess that can also be put down to poor writing or the cutting room floor).I strongly suspect all of the higher-ranking officers with families will have remained behind.
Although that whole 'We want to be kept together as a single unit' thing shouldn't have prevented them getting new crew to make a full compliment, even if they resisted (though why resist?) Of course, Starfleet itself may be very shorthanded right now. Very probably it is.Discovery is down (as per episode 302) to 89 active crew.
Did he though? There is a period in which we don't see him, in which he could have been promoted through intermediate ranks, although I agree that promotion would still have been fast. And maybe Tilly's promotion to junior grade Lieutenant will come next week too.Sulu went straight from Conn to Captain of the Excelsior without taking up an XO position).
Wasn't "Number One" the Majel Barrett character, now to be played by Rebecca Romijn (if they still make a Strange New Worlds series) just "Number One" and nothing else, with Spock as the Science Officer on Pike's Enterprise. And one of my points is that Tilly doesn't seem equipped or trained for that HR role either, though she can grow into it, of course.There's no such thing as a dedicated "First Officer" role pre-TNG, it's always combined with another position. One of the responsibilities is almost HR-like, acting as a liaison between the crew and captain (this is something Spock actually struggled with a few times before getting a handle on it).
