Hmm. I can fix stuff with duct tape if you want.
holy shit mary wiseman mimicked bahia watsons so well I had to play it like 5 times it’s crazy to watch
okay the universal translator fucking up and the crew speaking multiple different languages may be one of my favorite things to happen in anything star trek
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.
Have you always been a superior being?
Paul Stamets | An Obol for Charon
The sphere- its been trying to tell us something, and we havent been listening.
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
It’s been a day since I watched it and I’m still bothered by L’Rell holding up that shrunken Klingon baby head.
