Don't we all!  But given that we have already got Michael, Saru, Lorca, Tilly, Stamets, the painfully handsome Dr Culber (who isn't actually the CMO, I thought I noticed this week?), sort-of Keyla and now this dodgy Tyler (?) fellow (as well as three principal Klingons, Harry Mudd, Sarek and the Admiral), that's nearly as many regular crewmembers as any of the shows had. 

Anyone else is likely to be relegated to wallpaper roles, but you never know.

Airiam. The semi-robot is called Airiam. That's something at least.

Excellent sleuthing there, that name leads us to Memory Alpha where it becomes clear that no-one has a flipping clue what she is. Good looking actor under all the prostheses, though.

I miss the robot faced dude from the pilot whose head would flash the words "RED ALERT" on his face during an emergency.  Whatever species he is, clearly they think a work/life balance is for pussies.

That was all kinds of wonderful - was very much hoping he/she/it/them had lived to bleep another day.

Ha!  I can just see that faceplate lighting up with "The bell is a signal for me, not for you".

When Saru had the computer list the bravest captains in Starfleet history Cptn. Robert April was top of the list. This means they've incorporated TAS as canon. I have only one question.

Where are the Kzinti?

Dear Star Trek,

I have loved you since first I laid eyes on you. We have walked hand in hand through countless dreams and boundless imaginings, you have seeped into my heart and into my soul and, through your joyous optimism and faith in Right, made me a better person.

But now, though you look more beautiful than ever, you haven't put on these stunning new clothes for me.

You're breaking my f*cking heart.

Goodbye, my love, goodbye.

TLS.

Yes we got your message last week that you don’t like it.

This'll be your last comment in here then? We get it. You don't like it. You can move along now. Good lord. Melodrama over a TV show.
