[Strange New Worlds] - 2:06 - Lost in Translation

Uhura seems to be the only one who can hear a strange sound that seems to trigger terrifying hallucinations.

I thought this was a good episode

- Nice to see Uhura be front and centre in this episode..
- Awww Hemmer
- Oo Una and Pelia seem to have a spiky history...
- Kirk and Sam catching up which is good to see
- Things are getting more dire for Uhura
- The first meeting of Kirk and Uhura and she punches him
- I did think Paul Wesley's performance of Kirk was the best one for him so far
- for Uhura and Kirk teaming up to try to get to the bottom of what is happening..
- "Space Hippy"
- Loved that Pike bats for his crew no matter what... about him
- Lovely that Hemmer was a running thread throughout the episode
- Aww Kirk meeting Spock and the camera panning away from Kirk, Spock, Uhura. Those 3 don't know how how their future history will be entwined

Loved the focus on Uhura
Awesome way to bring Hemmer back
ooh .. tension between Una & Pelia
Kirk hardly knows Uhura, but he believes in her. Also Pike took Uhura's word for what was going on.
nice that Uhura is the one to introduce Spock and Kirk
Agree with Tracey that we seen more of the classic Kirk this episode
Another terrific episode

I did like that the big meeting between Kirk and Spock was understated....

and that Uhura was the one who made the meeting..

To me, the handshake was reminiscent of the scene in the future where they have their hands on the glass

not sure a whole military operation would be cancelled just because someone claims they heard something but neat little episode. Love the way they keep finding ways to include Kirk. Lot more realistic that than having him jump to the rank of captain basically from cadet. Huh.

Honestly, I thought we'd be seeing more of Kirk this season, but the slow introduction makes sense.

it's still weird that James's has a brother

So much PW in this episode he has really taken the role and made it his own so passionate his version of Kirk and love it

Was there for Uhura just the 2 episodes we have seen in him in 2nd season love it

He had a brother in TOS too who sadly was killed in the episode he was introduced in, by some creepy parasitic creatures.

Thought this was a good episode as well.

It was fairly obvious that there was an alien presence being hurt and trying to communicate, but it was done really well. It was good to have a bit of James Kirk, and also an Uhura-centric episode.
