The finale of Star Trek: Discovery gave us a short glimpse at the most legendary ship in the entire Starfleet: the Enterprise, ten years before the original Star Trek television show.

One of the most noted, and most controversial, changes of Star Trek: Discovery was its shift away from the series' traditional monster/science-problem/God-starship of the week setup to a storytelling structure that, if not as tightly plotted as many prestige shows, was still pretty strongly serialised.
Going into Star Trek: Discovery, fans were told to expect something new. It would be dark. It would be modern. It would push the boundaries of where Star Trek had boldly gone before. Now that we're at the end of Discovery's first season, we know it did take a few steps in those directions - but every time it did, it retreated back the minute things got too uncomfortable.
That was the theme of Discovery's latest episode: Michael Burnham's struggle between wrong, emotional (her words) choices and right, principled ones is also the struggle of the United Federation of Planets. Her giving into temptation and selfishly rescuing Emperor Georgiou is much the same temptation faced by the Federation in this episode. But will the Federation make as bad a call as Burnham did?
It's very rare to see contemporary versions of Star Wars and Star Trek make similar creative choices. After all, part of what's fuelled the age-old Wars v. Trek debate are the series' wildly different approaches to scifi. But with The Last Jedi in theatres and Discovery airing online, both franchises seem to be tackling something fascinating, questioning institutions in each world that fans have held dear for decades.
Thought it was tough to beat Daenerys Targaryen when it came to absurdly lengthy formal titles?

But this being Star Trek, there are reasons for every one of those fancy names.

So if you've been confused by all the Mirror-verse happenings in Discovery - and why wouldn't you be? - we're here to help put it all together.
