She screwed up hard and deserved what she got.
I see no reason whatsoever, given what she went to the ready room to have that conversation with Sarek about that she couldn't have brought Georgiou in on it aside from "plot requires only Burnam know what the right thing to do is."
They probably decided Porthos was the living incarnation of Fek'lahr and ran away.
I have not seen the second episode just yet but the first one was pretty good. Decent pilot thus far. I'll give a deeper review when I see part 2.
Although ... no contact with Klingons for nearly a century ...? So ... immediately after ENT they disappeared?
I have to say that is this one awesome series and can't wait for more episodes, but man it sucks to be Michael Burnham! (Normally I would agree with the main hero's/heroine's plan in Star Trek but I going to side with Captain Georgiu, that was not a good move Michael!)
Well this was definitely more like it, and considerably better than the J.J. reboot and its sequels.
As with Sehlat Vie, yeah there were TOS sound effects. There were also TNG sound effects too if you listen closely.
I know some might be put off by the look. I'm not. Yes it may look a bit like the JJ-Trek although the sets are anything but super-bright. They actually have a darker tone, which nicely adds to the nitty-gritty of the series.
Now to SPOILERS!
