So, let's start with the elephant in the room: Hemmer is dead. I'm quite disappointed. Anyone who's been reading my posts should know I'm quite the Hemmer fan. At least he got to die as he lived: Awesomely.

With that out of the way...

My only real complaint is that the Gorn are now Xenomorphs, and that this episode is basically an Alien movie.

Other than that, it was a pretty good episode. Lots of callbacks, both big and small, to previous episodes. Lots of good character interactions.

Oh, Hemmer; rest well.

There was an interview Bruce Horak did earlier this year where I thought he suggested or implied he wasn't back for the second season, so I wasn't surprised, and Hemmer's death does impart a weight that the death of Lt. Duke and Cadet Chia didn't (I predicted Duke would die as soon as he was promoted).

Sam Kirk's back! And just really mean to Spock. Jerk. I'm glad you die in the future.

The decisions this crew makes is somewhat baffling -- they're undergoing a rescue mission, with possibly up to 100 injured Starfleet personnel, and the Enterprise doesn't even remain in orbit long enough to see if mass casualty evacuation is necessary? Sure, okay, it'd be a bit longer than might be expected since you've gotta send shuttles up into communication range, but still ...

And La'an is going off on leave, so I guess it's up in the air if we'll see her again this season. One week until the finale! Maybe there will be a time jump?

I do predict Uhura will shortly graduate the Academy and be back as an ensign for S2.

Um, what's up with the Not-Constitution Sombra-class. This tops the lazyness of the cut-and-paste fleet in PIC S1.

So I guess we get Scotty as Chief Engineer next season.

It’s fucking nonsensical about the Sombra-class. First off, why have it as a Conniealike to begin with? OK they wanted to use standing sets, but a line of dialogue saying the internal design (of whatever class the Peregrine could have been) was similar, sickbay was a standard fit-out module, etc., would have done. They didn’t have enough imagination to do THAT, but just enough to not want to have it be one of the (canon?) twelve Constitutions? What, because it was destroyed? IT WASN’T!! It was salvaged! It could have been the Lexington, the Defiant, the bloody Kongo for all anyone would have cared!!

I have a feeling that the writers' intent was a rearrangement of parts like shitty kitbashers, & VFX took the line more than literally.

Or the producers thought "cheap kitbash" then realized "cool image that'll fool people into thinking the hero ship crashed".

But even if that was what they were going for, I'm still not sure why they made it a different class than a Discotution.

The hypothetical realization came after filming was complete, so they could try to dub (which would have been too complicated) or cut a bunch of lines.

Also, "Discotution" kinda works, but I just go with the Discoprise being Substitution Class, with JJ's Monsterprise as Reconstitution Class.
