…, Tilly's New Attitude and That 'Heartbreaking' Casualty.

"Warning: This post contains spoilers from Sunday's episode of Star Trek: Discovery.

What part of the universe or which universe did the Star Trek: Discovery crew find themselves in now… and who didn't survive the trip?

Sunday's winter premiere picked up right where we left off, with a botched spore-drive jump landing the Discovery in an unknown quadrant of space. The crew soon discovered they're stuck in a parallel universe the same "mirror universe" that Captain Kirk encountered in the classic Trek episode "Mirror, Mirror." (You know, the one where a goateed alt-Spock taught us that all facial hair is evil.)…"

Have to said… I enjoyed it much more that the first season…

Quite interesting also the USS Defiant history….

"In 2268, the Defiant responded to a distress call in the unexplored Tholian sector claimed by the Tholian Assembly. Shortly after entering the region, the Defiant's crew began experiencing sensory distortion, and insanity quickly spread throughout the ship. The ship's chief medical officer was unable to determine what was happening, and eventually the insanity induced by the phenomenon led the crew to kill each other.

Three weeks later, Starfleet ordered the USS Enterprise to mount a search and rescue mission to locate the Defiant. On stardate 5693.2, the Enterprise located the Defiant, only to find it trapped between universes in a space warp. The Enterprise's instruments recorded that space itself was literally breaking up, the result of a previously unknown phenomenon known as a spatial interphase. An Enterprise boarding party beamed aboard the Defiant and discovered signs of mutiny and insanity the captain's neck was broken and his crew was dead.

At that time the Defiant was visible in the "prime universe" while in the interphase. Later, as a result of a phaser exchange between the Enterprise and the Tholians, a hole was created through the spatial interphase. The Defiant was pushed through the hole to parts unknown and in the process trapping Captain James T. Kirk between universes. Captain Kirk was eventually saved when the Enterprise, encased in a Tholian web, entered the interphase and, upon utilizing full power, was thrown clear of the region while Kirk was locked in the transporter beam. (TOS: "The Tholian Web")…

…The Defiant arrived at Earth, now under the command of the self-proclaimed Empress Hoshi Sato. She ordered Admiral Gardner to surrender and stand by for instructions, or she would open fire on Earth. (ENT: "In a Mirror, Darkly, Part II") …"

So… Hoshi Sato would be… the ex Captain Georgiou???

So… Hoshi Sato would be… the ex Captain Georgiou???

Not at all, Hoshi Sato was the communications officer on the NX-01 Enterprise (in this case, the ISS Enterprise) back in 2155 (Discovery in presently in 2257, 102 years later). There's a good chunk missing between the 3 and 4th paragraph, which is all covered in the Enterprise two parter, "Through a Mirror, Darkly".

However, I don't discount for a second that Georgiou in the Mirror universe might just be the current "Faceless" Emperor(ess)… It seems like a suitable Mirror "twist".

The casualty really surprised me.

Me too… but as it is a "paralel Universe"… he could be back when they return to their own… (?),
