Lorca is definitely a unique Captain, that's for sure!

I like how they emphasize how early captains were more military men (and women). More impulsive, and risk-taking.

It makes historic sense. But it still makes me miss Picard-style leadership.

Look at what Lorca is going through, and will still have to endure. He's getting tortured just to ensure the mission is completed. But I don't think he'll be prepared for what the Emperor has planned.

The torture chambers don't look fun a all.

They kinda remind me of the suicide booths from Futurama though.

You have a point there. Although Burnhams recent past would have been well publicized and accessable. I don't remember seeing anything about them establishing Ash's credentials.

Also agree with what was said about the transition between military style captains, and people like Picard.

I've rewatched this episode now, and I'm finding it hard to like it. I did love Lorca doing the Scottish accent, but that was the only light moment in a very dark episode. The death of the doctor, Michael fighting for her life, Lorca being tortured were all so hard to watch. I liked Ash and Michael and having it go this way was painful, too. I'm not loving the mirror universe aspect either.

I'm still not sure why that was necessary. Ash could have just injured the doctor to get away.

Be going back to this tomorrow

Was right so starting the AU story line

Intrigued that 1st officer the one that fills fear had that when Ash came onto the bridge interesting

Tully trying to get a reaction from her superior [can't remember which is which when it comes to the guys aka Scientist and his love DR]

At least Lorca is recognizing that he pushed Paul to hard not sure about his decision to remove Dr cause of how he's boyfriend of Paul I kinda agree with the decision

The reveal of Ash speaking Klingon

Oh wow the opposite Discovery is in their universe - and Tully and Lorca Going Scottish to mask his voice

OH wow did Ash just kill the doc
