I loved the look of the Enterprise's bridge, it was so big and spacious. Could of used some buttons but it was glorious(did not like the Red Alert making everything even more Red). I was filledin nostalgia and other emotions just upon seeing the hallways and those silly grates and grills on the walls and the arches in the hallway and the Turbolift handles.
I hope this isn't the last we see of Pike on the show, all the goodbyes and that's the one I'm sad about. He has some how not only exceeded all of my expectations but may of also become my #1 Star Trek Captain.
It was amazing, all the goodbyes. And now so much makes sense.
And we see why they use rifts instead of Time Crystals in the future Much less messy.
Odd thought. So for a long time I’ve posited that a force like Fate exists in Star Trek that acts to keep timelines parallel and (most) species from being vulnerable to being butterflied out of existence. You need to overcome that force to make a permanent change. There seems to be pretty good empirical evidence for it.
The reason that Control is so hard to stop is because they’re fighting the fate of everyone in the galaxy at once.
I still wonder if the 29th Century Federation will get in on this.
Or if this isn’t the ‘original’ timeline yet and they don’t exist... but it WILL be by the time we’re done here.
