    "Children of the Comet"

    US Airdate: 012/05/2022 (Paramount+)
    International: 13/05/2022 (Only in countries with access to Paramount+)


    This thread is for the pre and post discussion of the series premiere episode "Children of the Comet" - this will be a spoiler filled discussion so if you've found your way past the warnings in the activity stream and the spoiler tag on the thread, this is your last chance to turn back, or at least it will be at the end of this first post. You have been warned!

    While on a survey mission, the U.S.S. Enterprise discovers a comet is going to strike an inhabited planet. They try to re-route the comet, only to find that an ancient alien relic buried on the comet’s icy surface is somehow stopping them. As the away team try to unlock the relic’s secrets, Pike and Number One deal with a group of zealots who want to prevent the Enterprise from interfering.

    You can find a preview of the episode details here.

    Children of the Comet is episode 2 of 10.

    I like how the episode turned out, Sheppard’s, musical communication, fulfilled prophecy… my favorite was Spock’s pep talks!

    I loved this episode. Between everything, you really felt like it was part of everyone's story. Uhura especially, with her you saw her grow into the officer she was by TOS and even more so the movies. Thumbs up x 8/10 by ny own, brand new arbitrary ratings system.

    I felt that the enterprise herself was too quick and nimble during the battle sequence, looked like she handled like Sisko's defiant, a ship a heck of a lot smaller, apart from that, fantastic I enjoyed the episode

    In my head the ships always handled like that, we just never saw it due to special effects technology/the situation being resolved by other means.

    yeah I guess you can think like that but even in Enterprise the USS Defiant (a prime universe constitution class) didn't move like that, even the NX-01 couldn't quite move like that (a smaller ship) but still, it looked pretty cool which is, I guess, what they were going for

    Great episode. Although I feel like the commercials picked up in frequency in comparison from the pilot. The new Uhura has a beautiful singing voice, just like the original! Wink

    Watched this with IntergalacticTowel and I really thought he was going to throw something at me. My comments during the show:

    "Oh, how refreshing...a nice simple episode where they're having to save the planet from a comet."
    ......two minutes later the weird nature of the comet is revealed along with the shepherd... /facepalm

    They beam to the planet....

    "Hey, that structure looks very Giger-esque, doesn't it? If they see any eggs in there, I'm done! Hah hah...uhm....that's an egg. I'm just going to stop talking now."
