    Yeah Lorca from the “prime universe” was always from the faux mirror universe. I haven't seen the latest episode yet but it doesn't seem like they can walk that back without a giant reset button.

    This could be a major problem for me going forward.

    Lorca just appears out of nowhere and Star Fleet gives him a ship? Lorca II appears in Lorca Prime’s ready room, slits his throat and takes his command?

    I'm not doing spoiler tags since they don't work, so if you don't want to know don't read.

    Nah, 14 months prior Mirror Lorca switched places with "Prime" Lorca the same way Kirk did, or will do in 11 years. The "prime" Lorca is presumed dead but they could always bring him back with the "who cares?" continuity hodgepodge this show has. But he won't ever have been Captain of the Discovery. That was always Mirror Lorca.

    My biggest problem going forward is the show itself. I often feel the same way watching it I did whenever I watched GINO. I guess I'll finish this season but I won't be back for the next. As a wise, sleepy, mumbly, old man once said, "Don't go through the pain."

    This thing with Lorca might end my interest. Yes the viewing experience is very GINO like.

    Interesting analysis, if short. I still haven't seen anything past the first half episode. I'd have blown through this already if Netflix US had the distribution but I'm not giving CBS a dime. My wife and I are talking about getting the free trial and cancelling as nothing on the CBS back catalog is enticing enough to keep it past watching this season.

    I've seen a few spoilers (for me) and it looks intriguing - but not enough.
