Star Trek Discovery is fast becoming the show that you’ll wish you got on board with sooner. The mid-season finale has aired and – if these Twitter reactions are anything to go by, at least – you’re going to want to fire up CBS Access/Netflix and boldly binge the first half of the season before January (if you haven’t already). Spoilers for Star Trek Discovery to follow…
Oh boy, where to begin? There were climactic showdowns, historic Trek moments, and, maybe, just maybe, the re-appearance of the Mirror Universe.
The perfect mid-season finale: SO. MANY. QUESTIONS.
While January isn’t too far away, try telling that to the fans of the show who are feverishly trying to work out what the hell happened. Still, the show delivered the goods and left everyone wanting more.
O...M...G! 💙 #StarTrekDiscoverySo many questions. Is Tyler actually Voq? Is Stamets becoming the traveler? Is Cornwell actually Lethe? Was Georgiou delicious? Will Lorca get Lasik? Why do we have to wait till January?!?! #LLAP 🖖 pic.twitter.com/KP2Qr14Bt213 November 2017
Michael vs. Kol
We finally got to see the two go head-to head – and it didn’t disappoint. There was even a neat, symbolic moment right at the very end of the clash, in case you missed it.
The fight scene between Michael and Lol was awesome - a nice modern update of those Kirk-Klingon fight scenes. Love that she grabbed Captain Georgiou's badge off Kol as she jumped off railing. Nice move. #StarTrekDiscovery13 November 2017

So, yeah… everyone loves this show. It’s smart, funny – and has plenty of heart. But is it, as some say, the best Star Trek TV show ever? You can be the judge of that…
#StarTrekDiscovery is KILLING it tonight. Amazing episode. I haven't been this excited since Voyager engaged the Borg. @startrekcbs13 November 2017

That finale went by so fast, it felt like 20 min. I was screaming, "Badass Burnham!" during her showdown with Kol. Also freaking out about Stamets. #StarTrekDiscovery13 November 2017

More reflections (because of mirrors, geddit?!)
The big cliffhanger involved the crew lost in space, cast adrift, and heading to parts unknown. Is it the Mirror Universe – of goatee Spock fame – or somewhere else entirely? Bad news: no one really knows. Good news: we’ve only got two months to wait to find out.

the plot twist for #StarTrekDiscovery will be this is a mirror of "mirror mirror" in a mirror pic.twitter.com/1VsWaNNFVv13 November 2017
Star Trek Discovery heading to the mirror universe. Niiiiiiiiice. Hopefully they stay there for several episodes and not just a one off.13 November 2017
