Didn't really like the latest episode. It just sort of feels, I don't know, careless? Like the writers just go with whatever they come up with first, then ignore things that don't make sense. Like evil Klingon guy just showing up without any sort of assurances, so that everybody who knew about the whole thing conveniently gets murdered.

I think what's missing to me is really that it's the constraints that make a Sci-Fi setting believable, that make it feel like a universe and give it coherence. But this show just casually ignores such things---'...and then, they zip through the universe using a magic fungus, you know, and that fungus can also infect people and manifest hallucinations of people from their past...'. That's not a plot, that's Mad Libs.
