That indeed mimics the effect of the original 'The Cage' episode.

This was actually reference in the season 1 episode "Si Vis Pacem Para Bellum"

I picked it up straight away. Other trek fans complained that mixing transporter sounds for plant life was just ridiculous. I had to point them in the right direction.


Beaming aboard the Section 31 ship used the sounds of the original Transport sound of The Cage as well.

Wow, I knew my ears were good, ahaha. that is deep. a shame, I thought Melissa did it all. But it works!

I geeked out hard when that happened. So cool.

The last three shows were pretty good. It's gotten better.

BTW, I noticed there are no commercials during the show using the Android app. So I installed the app on my Chromebook and stopped using watching it via the Chrome browser.

Each episode has been getting better and better. Tonight had me a bit in tears because of certain events and well damn was it intense. Really, those on the fence or those who did not care for season one, season two is leaps and bounds better.

Great Episode once again. Jonathan Frakes arguably presented the best episode of season one. I reckon the other directors have caught up. This season has been very good.

This episode contains the best shot of the U.S.S Discovery, truly felt like watching the Excelsior in Star Trek 3, the language in the movement was very reverential to older Star Trek.

Musically, the use of Syntheizers reminded very much of Brad Fiedel's composition for the original Terminator.

which becomes evidently fitting as the show progresses.

4.5/5

and the ending was pure genius, I don't mean what happened, I mean when
[Show spoiler]it went off, no music, no usual colored background, silence and black screen and no preview of the next episode either. like I said, pure genius; it really nailed the impact of the ending.

Also:
[Show spoiler]While there was no music, there was the sound of ocean waves gently lapping the shore, the sound playing over the end credits. The background noise of Ariam's favorite memory.

[Show spoiler]That is still my theory, she will be buried in space so preserved and 1000 years in the future the Discovery will recover her and Zora will transfer herself into Airiams body then start travelling back in time as the Red Angel.

So great episode as people have said, Riker seems to get the best episodes (or, maybe they are the best because of him) but....

[Show spoiler]as well done as it was I still cant help but be disappointed by the cliched AI turns evil and kills everybody aspect that still seems to be the case from the last episodes. I really hope there is more to it then that.

Well that moment with Airiam
[Show spoiler]has greater implications. What ever it was tried to bring sentience to itself 400 years earlier than its previous existence, with the knowledge of that great sphere, so that throws many possibilities on who is winning the war currently. It could be losing as the Red Angel's timeline influences are weakening the AI threat of the future,

With 5 episodes left, I hope we don't get a case of rushing to the finish line ;-)
