Spock and Burnham discuss the tragic consequences of the Sarek issues and show off their inflexibility and divisiveness and self loathing. I did not care about this non-adrenalised tale or any of the new characters. I detest all these jackasses and have been firmly disabused from watching 'Star Trek Discovery'.
The details of Vulcans and their rampant xenophobia and cultural distrust makes one detest them. There is unsubtle foreshadowing and Burnham is a detestable jackass. The writer attempts to patch up differences between ‘Discovery’ and ‘TOS’ but badly and Burnham does a boobs and butt pose on the photo cover. Sigh.
“Require all potential cultural contaminants such as you, your colonists, and all your infrastructure be removed.”
“Extinct civilizations sometimes aren’t.”
“Their empire has been extinct for millions of years.”
“What was a dentist doing on a landing party?”
