Yes, one way or another, let's keep Pike.

A spinoff series featuring the adventures of Pike on the Enterprise would be welcome.

hard to believe Pike & Black bolt are played by the same actor. Goes to show how important the material the actors are given is. 

I wonder how many other actors have not been given second chances because of terrible material. 

Pike is the best thing about this show.

Re: “*The Red Angel and the as-yet-unnamed enemy in the preview looked eerily like both the Vorlons (in angel form, but wearing a tech suit... uh huh) and the Shadows -- the enemy's ships looked a lot like the mass drivers/planet killers from Babylon 5 too.   Interestingly, this week's episode had a very B5-ish title....   Hmmm”

Indeed, there tiny hope for my Red Angel is Good Lorca theory yet! (cf. the “One” from “Babylon Squared.” And to anyone who hasn’t watched that series and plans to, definitely do not look that up. Huge spoiler alert.) Shape of Red Angel suit is kind of feminine, though.

Yes Victor, that suit seems to have feminine hips, but
maybe that`s a red herring?
Coincidentally, i saw Jason Isaacs interviewed on UK tv
yesterday, he was asked if he was still in Discovery,
but was evasive!

Whacky thought I had while watching the beginning of Season 2 is if the Red Angel is future version of Burnam it would explain the connection to both her and Spock and why she was saved as a child. 

Odds are it may be "good" Lorca going back in time.... the fortune cookie Pike left on the desk may have been a hint

Besides the flashbacks I think I am enjoying this season more than the last.  It reminds me of how slow TNG VOY and DS9 were to start than picked up rapidly.  I could never make it thru ENT.  It's going to be a sad day when Pike leaves,

I think that you guys might find this interview with Robert Meyer Burnett very interesting and informative.

Greatly enjoyed the episode with the Talosians. Was not expecting that 'previously on Star Trek' recap... The channel I watch Disco on (Space, a Canadian sci-fi channel) shows a lot of Star Trek, so I wasn't sure at first whether it was just a promo they had knocked together before the show started proper. Pretty funky way to kick things off and quite bold to segue from Jeffrey Hunter's Pike to Anson Mount's version.

Loved the sound work, that idiosyncratic high-pitched hum on Talos IV, and the sixties styling they maintained for Vina. The resolution of how Pike gets out of the 'impossible' bind at the end was nicely satisfactory.

Not crazy about the whole crew being renegades nor Burnham being an insurgent yet again, nor the 'new' Suru, but I'll see how things pan out.

That interview has been thoroughly debunked, Rick.  The whole timeline/licensing thing was proven wrong as soon as they aired that Cage footage last week.  Its all silly.

Someone made a 50 minute documentary about a conspiracy theory involving Star Trek TV and movie rights? ....why?
