    Oh man, when I saw Frakes name I had high hopes for this. Not going to write too much about the episode but I have no clue how they are giving this series a satisfying finale in that very last episode after this!

    One thing though, what the hell was going on with Discovery when they tried to find that clue within the two black holes. They go in, get out of the two black holes, see the container and are like, let’s talk this over how to get this thing. Then the Breen swoop in and tractor that bucket into their cargo hold within 5 seconds! What gives? That was just needless incompetence. The Discovery crew is seriously not that stupid.

    Why not having the Breen swoop in as Disocvery is attempting to escape. Then while Discovery is heading out the Breen grab the clue. Could have made up some technobabble about how some radiation from the black holes obscures Discovery from the Breen or whatever.

    Anything else but what was shown. Damn. How is this so hard?

      The entirety of this season was riddled with examples of characters acting nothing like themselves. Burnham outright says she’ll let terrorists get away unless she’s added to a mission, Rhys/Owo mention that people can cloak but they have a way to track them then never use it and get surprised after visually clearing a room, S1 Burnham during that weird time skip episode acted nothing like her Season 1 counterpart, Book had access to information that was said in Season 3 he couldn’t possibly have… It’s like they just let random people guest write every episode of the season.
