    Is this the interview with Doug Jones himself (out of Saru-makeup)? I heard from a friend that THAT article is a fascinating read!

    If it isn't, as a Saru-junkie, I'll devour your post anyhow!

    Thank you for sharing!

    ADDENDUM: ( WITH SPOILERS !!!!!!)

    I watched this, upon recommendation (among 2 other s of the 4 total) and I found it full of heart, hope, and that yearning that we all have to "see what's around the next curve in the road."

    The fact that Saru was the protagonist, well, only made that journey more special to me.

    Remaining continuity questions: if, as was illustrated in Season 1 of Disco, Saru was able to travel at cheetah-esque speeds to "escape predators" --yet the predator in the short was an obelisk, immobile...as an idol demanding tribute... then, how did his kind develop said blinding overland speed & danger-flight traits? (Possible solution: other predatory species might exist upon Saru's world OTHER than the main antagonist shown.)

    It's all Doug Jones, man. It's something about the characters he plays, and the way he BECOMES them. He just doesn't jump into a role on a whim, either; you can tell he invests a GREAT deal of research into who or what he is playing, and gives it 110% every time he suits up.

    Doug Jones, whether it be in Shape of Water, as Abe in Hellboy, or in Pan's Labyrinth... utterly remakes his physical presence, and some way (witchcraft or alien conspiracies, etc) he *becomes* other...and *otherworldly* !

    CBS should hire stage 9 to make as many interactive computer simulations possible. They could even help with making an interactive Discovery site for the ships featured on the show.

    Out of all of the shorts I thought his was the best.

    Calypso being a very close second. I think we will see a Captain Saru eventually. Possibly Season Three.
