That definitely was the most Trekky one so far. "A plot" (Unidentified Space Organism) influences "B plot" (Saru) is straight out of the Next Gen playbook.

But then because it's all about momentum, instead of doing character work in the 45 minutes available to them, they cram in three more plots (Escape Engineering  and Tilly/Fungus and Chase Spock).

I did like it though and a couple of genuine lols (Tilly's hair).
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

It's all a bit Emo-Trek, but I loved the scene where the universal translator stopped working.
