DIS "Vaulting Ambition" Thoughts

1) I'd actually heard That Plot Twist was a theory about Lorca and had dismissed it as crazy talk. WOW.

2) Paul/Hugh - my heart hurts even more now.

3) Emperor Phillipa is so bamf.

Annnnnnnd we only have three episodes left. *flail* I have no idea how they are going to resolve all this. Wow.

Eta: Mirroverse as Super Late Capitalism, esp. with the eating of a Kelpien. *thinking*

Aw, damn. I thought there were 5 eps left. Noooo!

Lorca--I heard that last week, and I thought it fit. Still, it's mind-blowing.

I've never liked the Mirror universe. I skipped all the Mirror episodes in the series where it appears (except TOS) and do NOT understand why people like it so much. Well, okay, yeah, I do. But I reject it because torture plays a central role and it just turns my stomach. So I don't know the connection with the Defiant. I guess I'll have to find it.

SO GLAD to see Michelle Yeoh back and being BAMF.

I will so miss Hugh/Paul. But I'm glad Paul has come back. ♥

Re: "The Defiant" - in TOS it is lost in "The Tholian Web." Then in ENT there's the two-parter "Through a Mirror, Darkly" where the Mirror ENT crew finds the Defiant in their universe; the ship is from a hundred years in the future for them so advanced tech, plus databases with the personnel records etc. so they know what happens in "the future." It concludes with a crewmember killing the Captain and declaring herself Empress of the Fleet because she has more advanced tech than anyone else.

That was one of the best Enterprise episodes!
