That was cool

USS Wayfarer; Sovereign Class like 1701-E?

Yeah pretty much. I love the Sovereign class. And those uniforms are so cool too.

Why does the USS Wayfarer have a Luna-class on the Engineering console in the background? Should be a Sovereign class instead.

screw up in the program. this is a holodeck mission after all

Here’s a weird thought. Unless the entire crew is participating in the simulation would the computer actually render all of the effects of the Cerritos battle with the Romulans, or the Romulans themselves. In other words, if Boimler (and perhaps his fellow lower deckers) are the only ones partaking in the simulation wouldn’t everything be from their perspective on the Wayfarer. Like, why render anything involving the Cerritos or the Romulan ship, if all the real humans are on the Wayfarer that whole time? Just sayin’.

Of course we know this is for the benefit of us the audience, but could there be an in-universe explanation for it. Perhaps why not? Or perhaps the computer has to be ready if Boimler makes the decision to warp in early or board the other ships. It just seems like the computer would not waste the energy. On the other hand, it probably doesn’t tax the computer much as it would a modern day computer.

Just saw it! And I won’t say any spoilers, but this show just brings me a smile to face every episode and this was one of the best in the season and tops Crisis Point 1 (which was actually my favorite episode in season 1). So much fun and a lot of fun surprises!

No spoilers for me either, but I legit got teary-eyed when a certain someone was revealed in the final act.

I absolutely adore this show.
