Seeing her reaction during this scene (also during the scene where she heard about her (step)brother being an Ambassador to Starfleet as well as his attempts to unify the Romulans and the Vulcans) makes me feel that she is actually very proud of Spock. I bet she would love to tell her that in person, if she could...Shame she is stuck in the future with no way of getting back to her own time. This is a very emotional scene. I love it...
I feel like there's one big connection we need to make at some point. We need the Kelvin timeline to have some, maybe even if it's minor, affect on the Prime timeline. To have Spock's journey be cyclical would ring true with so much of the franchise and be a good place for storytelling. Strange New Worlds, if it takes place after DIS S2, would be in the same year that Star Trek Into Darkness takes place. Have a crossover event, where Quinto's spock crosses over into the Prime timeline, and is able to meet the man who created the new timeline.
Looking in the comments and people are saying how it is recorded? Did they forget first data is an android and isnt picard now so he could have that memory as a file also the fact this is star trek and they have phasers,warp drive,transporters and holograms does it really matter how they recorded it?
I completely lost it watching this scene. To see the great Leonard Nimoy on screen again. And the joy I felt at recognizing these speeches of his from "Unification: Pts. 1 & 2". What a WONDERFUL way to tie in a Discovery story to TNG and Picard. This is one of many reasons why I have fallen in love with this series this season. They're doing all the right things, and showing so much respect for the previous series.
Atleast leonard does not have to see the trash that is STD (startrek discovery). Feelings in Space how much worse can it get.
Nothing wrong with some feelings, but in STD it is just trash. Please let STD take place in a very different universe it is not too late for that.
Forget forget forget that STD ever excisted, except in a different universe FAR FAR AWAY !!!
I was almost drawn in and finally felt I was nearly enjoying Discovery, after what felt like a few nice episodes (non gender trill ghost couple being one of them) but I find I really struggled with these two last episodes and I am firmly back to feeling anger and confusion at the bad writing and general production of Discovery. Why are they upgrading Discovery but not interested in Discovery’s game-changing tech? As for the production... I feel like I am getting a headache again, with everything looking so soft, blue-lit, lens-flarey and over-produced. There are never any lingering beauty shots on ships or investment in feasible sci-fi tech. It’s like this Star Trek series is embarrassed to be a Star Trek series. Why not design and showcase some new future ship designs? Inspire our imaginations, they way we all became familiar with the various ship classes, etc. It just feels like it could be any soy-drama, masquerading as sci-fi. We had a scene at the Vulcan hearing, the vulcan president with tears in her eyes, Michael’s mother coming into Michael’s room and them both crying, then the crew hug Tilly and tell her to accept her promotion and there were more tears. Three scenes, all with tears, back to back. What on earth is up with this series? I dislike Discovery so much and feel what Alex Kurtzman has done is unforgivable, but there was a little period in Season 3 where that ‘Star Trek itch’ was nearly satisfied... After they visited Earth and then they got to the cloaked Star Fleet, I felt like I almost cared. I wanted to care, it’s difficult to feel invested in characters you son’t care about and can’t remember their names. They’re either really catty to each other, angry or crying. No logic to anything. Huge plot holes. But let’s chuck a video of the incredible Leonard Nimoy in and we elevate the quality of our show without actually having to work for it.
Picard had mind melded with Sarek. So he had a sense of connection to Spock, with whom he also melded. Not surprising that he kept this. And so meaningful to Burnham that Spock went on to become a truly great man after she went to the future. The effects of his life are still felt, after more than nine centuries.
This was a proper Star-Trek episode. They really nailed it. Imagine if we started with this kind of story telling instead of all that Season 1 war nonsense. It was totally unnecessary. Season 3 so far has been in a whole different league, and this kind of storytelling really ices the cake. I was sceptical of Discovery ever finding its feet but the writers are really starting to nail it now. Entire episode was filled with optimism amidst a serious diplomatic problem, and there was speeches! Granted they'll never top Picard's but its the thought which counts.
Part of me was the same way, Spock was my Hero growing up and when Leonard Nimoy died I was crushed.
They even memorialized his passing in star trek beyond.
And......now I hear his voice again. Here... On discovery... It remind my of the very moment that Micheal is watching there.
