I didn't mind the episode. It's probably realistic that Burnham and the Discovery didn't come through at exactly the same time, especially when Burnham collided with Book's ship.

"Stop calling me rocket girl" !

Thought it was a good introduction to Book, and to the way things are at this point in time. It was nice to see a variety of established species. Especially Andorrians, and a Morn from DS9.

Yes! She was channeling her inner Tilly!

Loved that Burnham officially commissioned the fellow holding down the fort at the Federation office and made him communications officer.

I think it's a good season opener. I hope we see more of the cute cat.

I was a bit disappointed that they were going TOS-style with the Andorians. I loved the ENT-Andorians with moving antennae.

Seems like the Ready Room is only for the US, I can't watch it.

But here's the link:

I would have liked to see the ENT Andorrians too, but the moving antennae would eat up the special effects budget.

Rita - agree that we've already seen some nice chemistry between Michael & Book. Don't think he expected her to be able to defend herself so well. Really hope to see more of them next week.

When Book gave up the code so easily that uncloaked his ship, I thought there would be some defensive measure, but never expected that.

yea...I love the Michael/ Book chemistry and it looks like they will hook up at some point and be "shipped"

I thought that giant worm was actually the cat...lol....like in Captain Marvel with the cat being a carnivore alien

Book seems like the Han Solo type character of ST Discovery. I wonder if that was filmed during early Pandamic...it was just mainly those 2 in the epp....

Dave - they finished filming in early March, just before all the travel restrictions went into effect.

that giant worm was something else when it was in attack mode! Then Book called it off, and it got all cute and cuddly.

I think I remember reading about them filming in Iceland? Some of the scenes sure reminded me of Iceland.

The landscape was marvelous! I always love it when they really go to an outside location. (And I'm glad they didn't use the rock from Kirk's Gorn fight again, that would have been too often after Picard.)

Unless they were trying to tie into a particular established event, get out and go someplace new.

I'm still getting a chuckle thinking of Michael being so hyper on the truth serum.

it probably was Iceland

I hope we get to see more creatures in season 3.... and the end trailer did spoil a lot....if you watch it carefully

that was a fun side of Michael that we've never seen...giddy and talkative with Truth serum...

Sonequa really had a chance to show her acting skills in that scene.

I thought it was a bit too much emotional rollercoster for a season opener, but that's probably more a writing/plotting issue than her acting.

Btw, found a Ready Room link that works for my region:
