#an obol for charon

The writing for “An Obol for Charon” is spectacular and there were no moments where I felt sharks were utilized. At two points I even cried; information provided by the Star Trek Shorts came in handy this episode as well. This episode connected all of its story threads in a wonderfully intelligent way. Visually the episode was fantastic with CGI on part with that of Star Wars or other big budget productions. I still prefer a different focus on the art but they do not lose me in the depiction of gravity or celestial objects at any point. I can’t really extrapolate more on the episode for I really enjoyed it. If Discovery has even one more episode on this level of quality the entire series is worth watching.

Star Trek: Discovery S02E04 ‘An Obol For Charon’

‘A mysterious sphere threatens the U.S.S. Discovery even as May, in her original form, implements a plan that puts Tilly’s life in danger. Saru and Burnham’s bond grows when Saru is forced to acknowledge a deeply unsettling Kelpien truth. Pike receives new intel on Spock from a loyal friend’.

It was always suggested that Michael and Saru had a bit of a brother/sister relationship on the Shenzhou prior to the Klingon war, but they were pretty much at each others throats for most of the first season. The events of this episode provided some tender moments that brought them closer than ever and it was great to see their bond strengthen. @actordougjones again demonstrated his impressive ability to emote through a mountain of prosthetics.

We got our first look at @rebeccaromijn’s Number One, Tig Notaro was back as Jet Reno with her trademark dry wit, and Tilly had a real rough week. The tension continues to build this season, and ‘An Obol For Charon’ pushed the overall story forward while still largely being a stand-alone episode.

I see a lot of fans being concerned that Saru losing his ganglia will mean that he is now magically cured of his anxiety. But I’m thinking that his ganglia also gave him abilities that he might now have to learn living without. No matter what, the struggle is not over. Saru will have to find ways to adapt to his new condition, and, more importantly, he will have to find himself and his own identity yet again. And yes, it could end up being trash, but it could also be amazingly well realised. My faith in Doug Jones is absolute, but the rest is up to the writers.

‘an obol for charon’ might be my favourite star trek episode ever because it shows everything that star trek stands for. like of course you have the nerdy science and spaceships part but you also see hope, kindness, empathy and the belief that doing what’s right is not just a chore but in itself worth doing, that no one gets left behind is so powerful and important
