That link didn't work, Helen. :-(

(They mentioned the star thing on After Trek too - I remarked on it in the After Trek thread.)

Thanks for the link.

Yes, Big Hint there! Maybe we will see another version of Lorca eventually.

Guess I'm the first to chime in about last night's ep. So. We go from Mirror Capt. Lorca to Mirror Capt. Georgiou. Two words from a phrase come to mind: Frypan and Fire. :uhoh

I can understand asking Mirror-Georgiou for help with the klingons, But making her captain?! So the rest need to follow her orders?! Are they nuts?!
:shock: :loco

That was an absolutely desperation nuts move by the Admiral and Sarek.

Now I'm wondering if the admiral and Sarek are from the MU . . . or . . . worse . . . more Klingon conversions. nuke.gif

Here's a review of ep. 14, with news about Lorca, confirming what we already suspected about him. :D

Judging by that decision, I wonder about that as well... That was just dumb... :roll:

I have to agree that putting your enemy in charge of your ship is a very strange move indeed. And it's not even as if she's being remotely controlled or they have some threat hanging over her. :tchuh:

The only reason not to notice she has become ruthless is that Lorca was ruthless too (although at the time they did not know his true motives), so the crew are accustomed to ruthless.

Saru better check his prey-dar often. Like. VERY often. Like. Sit on her lap and see if it registers. :shock:

There is no way I can read Tweets and watch at the same time. I tried when they do it on Walking Dead and just don’t enjoy the show.
