They're back on form this week. A good, tense episode.

Spoiler:
I don't think Hemmer is dead. He's on a world compatible with Aenar's climate, so he can survive there. I'm betting we'll find out he survives being impregnated by the Gorn somehow and shelters in place until he can figure a way off planet. Someone on twitter suggested that he gestates a few Gorn babies, they fight it out for supremacy, and then Hemmer teams up with the reamining Gorn a la Enemy Mine I doubt that.



I so so so wanted the little girl to say "They mostly come out at night. Mostly."

So those alien/velociraptor things that were stalking them on this episode, grow up and as adults have warp drive technology and build star ships?

They are highly intelligent.

This was a very cool episode. Loved the blue guy (poor thing) and the Gorn look menacing... better than the ST:TOS.

Yeah, and they start moving a lot slower, too.

Yeah, I enjoyed the episode, but I thought it was just a little too close to Alien/Aliens for comfort.

Regarding your spoiler --

Spoiler:
I thought the same thing, but on a rewatch, I noticed that Hemmer took a swan dive off of a cliff. So he'll have to survive that in addition to the Gorn chestbursters growing in his body.

That's another case of the direction in this episode being kind of iffy. I rewatched the chestburster scene in sickbay a couple of times and I'm still not sure what happened to Chia. She screamed, then she's lying a pool of blood on the floor.

I'll really miss Hemmer. He was one of the best characters on the show. Alien, outwardly grouchy and bristly, but ultimately kind and wise.

A good return to form, a lot of good moments from all the characters and it’s a damn shame about Hemmer. It sucks to lose him but judging how Uhura was looking at the Comm station at the end, his sacrifice will be the thing to push her to stay in Starfleet.

The actor was apparently told at the start that he wouldn’t make it so at least they didn’t ambush him.

We saw this version of the Gorn in Enterprise.

It’s hard to get too upset over who dies on this show because we know who’s going to survive. Knew that new Lieutenant was going to bite the dust because we never saw him before.

This dulled some of the tension in this episode, to be sure. I was never actually worried about Nurse Chapel dying, even though the situation should have demanded it.

Bummed about the one who didn’t survive, though.

Very Alien. Still entertaining.
I've noticed with this show being more episodic it could have more episodes and it would not feel dragged out. I enjoyed the last season of Discovery, however, there were times it started feeling a bit dragged out.

Think they could just input some new data they found so they can track them. Evolved to avoid technology? Okay...............

I guess it would only work if you were actively looking for them, but since they make that clicking noise you could program a tricorder to listen for that, couldn't you?

They may have them figure it out later. For now, they want them to be scary monsters that could be anywhere. In that regard being able to track them would take that away.

Sure a different tone from last week! They should've made Not-Newt look less like Newt though.

Fun episode but, yeah, kind of too much of an Alien ripoff. And it sucks they killed Hemmer, he was one of the more interesting characters.

With Hemmer out of the way does that make room for Scotty? I haven't looked for spoilers or anything but I'm hopeful.

I have seen a few articles speculating as much, with no solid information. A separate article also recommends not reading anything about the season finale prior to watching it (for unrelated reasons, as far as I know).
