It's always been a basic facet of technology in the Star Trek universe that shields block transporters. Discovery quickly learned the first time it visited Earth that in the future their shields need an upgrade to block current transporter technology. One would assume that the Federation provided them such technology before sending their most prized piece of new technology out into a space that's under constant threat of attack from a powerful alliance like the Emerald Chain. If the future Federation didn't have the ability to block Emerald Chain transporter technology from boarding at will, then there's no way they even exist anymore.Does Discovery have the ability to block transporters? I thought that was something Osyraa brought on board when she captured the ship. It was emphasized several times in the episode that the Emerald Chain has the best scientists in the galaxy.
Overall, a pretty good episode though.What a complete let down and horrible reason for what caused the burn. Man that was soooo lame.
And if that is the new "engage" catch phrase the person that came up with it should be fired.
Great special effects for the finale. This show truly is amazing in what they can do now for a TV show. Stunning. Despite the complaints above I did enjoy this season, looking forward to more.
Yes, it was a good episode. It was definitely fan service, but enjoyable fan service. The only thing still out of canon is that Starfleet has managed to actually have good admirals. I'm sure they'll correct that in future seasons.Overall, a pretty good episode though.
I got thrown for a loop when they went back to the Mirror universe but this one brought me back, thankfully. All is well in the universe again 😃
My thoughts exactly. So a kid yelled. A kid yelled. I mean, a kid yelled? THAT’S the cause? This is the best writing they could muster for this giant season plot point?What a complete let down and horrible reason for what caused the burn. Man that was soooo lame.
Saru would be a good captain in the TNG/Lower Decks era. Michael is the Kirk/Archer style captain needed for the 32nd century.My thoughts exactly. So a kid yelled. A kid yelled. I mean, a kid yelled? THAT’S the cause? This is the best writing they could muster for this giant season plot point?
I also enjoyed the season. But still, I don’t want Micheal as captain. Saru is more interesting and likable and should be the captain. Period.
Lastly, how many captains can we have in 3 years? We’re up to, what, 6 now if you count Tilly? (Lorca, Georgiou, Pike, Saru, Tilly, Micheal). Pick a friggen captain for this series already dudes (and make it Saru)!
If you ever heard my son scream at the age of two it would be more believable. On occasion I thought the universe was ending.I mean, a kid yelled? THAT’S the cause?
And that somehow caused all Dilithium in the galaxy/universe to explode at almost the same time. Because he was attuned to the Dilithium of the planet?It wasn't the yelling, it was the anger that went with it. His biology was tuned with the planet, which resulted in the "explosion." That story line was just fine by me.

I remember those days myself with my kids... Still, come on here. This was the writers best attempt to explain a really interesting phenomena (The Burn) ? Come on ..If you ever heard my son scream at the age of two it would be more believable. On occasion I thought the universe was ending.
I just watched a Deep Space Nine rerun where the Jem'Hadar get wiped out by their own subspace mines. ...
