Has anyone else watched the 4x Short Treks?

I really enjoyed Calypso and The Brightest Star.

Would be keen to talk about Calypso and

“Runaway”

Tilly’s one of my favorite Disco characters, so it was nice to have a Short Trek focus on her. I’m guessing Xahea never shared the incubator tech with the Federation given Scotty’s lines in Star Trek IV.

”Calypso”

While a well-executed Trek version of “The Odyssey”, it raises several questions that I suspect will never be answered. Why was Discovery told to hold position and then abandoned? And is this the future or a possible future?

”The Brightest Star”

My favorite of the bunch. No glaring issues for me. Doug Jones is such an underrated actor.

“The Escape Artist”

Ugh. What’s sad is that this had a lot going for it. Harry Mudd (in my opinion) was closer to his TOS self here than in his previous two Disco appearances. But whereas they could have tightly tied this in with “I, Mudd” by firmly establishing the real Harry was already on the planet featured in that episode, and therefore raising the very real possibility that the Harry seen in “Mudd’s Women” was actually an android, we are instead left with a vague ending that left me scratching my head as to whether these are the same androids.

Also, I did this first. [Razz]

I enjoyed all of them, though I agree that the plethora of Mudd androids raise a lot of questions. (And I’d completely forgotten about that “Series ?” episode!)

Apparently Saru’s family might be appearing later in season 2. I wonder if some of the other episodes are setting up some foreshadowing. I could see some sort of time loop being set up for “Calypso.”

Or they could mean nothing at all. [Wink]

I got a nice little recognition shock when I saw that Zora's holoavatar was played by Sash Striga, who I know as one of the big-city snipes on Letterkenny. Since both shows are Ontario-based, I'm hoping for more player crossovers. (Lemme see Shoresy show up as a relief crewman on the bridge: "Fuck you, Stamets, that's not a comet, it's just a fuckin' asteroid! Tell your mom I'll be by next shore leave to pick up my change from last time! Give yer balls a tug, ya titfucker!")
