Added DiffLines:

--> '''Tyler:''' Why is he thinking of your failure? Where's the logic in that? I've been close to death, all right? Right up next to it. You don't think about who's failed you. None of that matters. You think about who you love, what you wish you'd done differently. What does he wish he had done differently?


* CallBack: Sarek involuntarily uses the interstellar mind meld that he used in the pilot to contact Burnham.

'''Stamets:''' Once you're past getting stabbed by needles, it's pretty great.

Added DiffLines:

* MemeticBadass: Tyler, InUniverse, according to Tilly.
--> '''Tilly:''' Scuttlebutt is he took out six Klingon warriors in hand-to-hand combat when he and the captain escaped that Bird-of-Prey.\\
'''Burnham:''' Six? I've fought Klingons. I doubt it.\\
'''Tilly:''' Now the captain practically wants to adopt him as a result.\\
'''Burnham:''' I can't imagine Captain Lorca feeling that way about anyone.\\
'''Tilly:''' Why? He practically adopted you. I believe every word of it. I kind of feel like it makes him hotter.

Added DiffLines:

--> '''Lorca:''' Don't take my ship away from me. She's all I got. Please, I'm begging you. Now, you-you're right. It's been harder on me than I let on, and I lied about everything, and I need help.\\
'''Cornwell:''' I hate that I can't tell if this is really you.


* TheReveal: The Vulcan learning center bombing that nearly caused Burnham's death as a child was caused by Vulcan extremists trying specifically to kill her.

** The Vulcan Expeditionary Group would only accept either the human Burnham or half-human Spock (once he graduated the Vulcan Science Academy), because one-and-a-half humans would be unacceptable even though both were eminently qualified. The director of the VSA even refers to both Spock and Burnham as "not-quite-Vulcans".

* BodyCountCompetition: After their VirtualTrainingSimulation, Lorca has 24 kills and asks Tyler for his score. Tyler says 22, but Lorca checks his rifle and reads 36. Tyler tries to brush it off, but Lorca insists that he needs to be proud of excellence. He also expects his Chief of Security to shoot better than him.

Added DiffLines:

* YouDoNotWantToKnow:
--> '''V'Latak:''' May I inquire as to the nature of our diplomatic mission?\\
'''Sarek:''' Allow me to be diplomatic and ask that you do not. In times of crisis, ignorance can be beneficial.
** {{Subverted}}, however, as V'Latak knows exactly where Sarek is going and what he's doing, and will blow himself up to keep Sarek from succeeding.

* LuredIntoATrap: The negotiations with the Klingons were a ruse by Kol to capture a high-ranking Vulcan. A Starfleet Admiral is a decent consolation prize when Sarek is waylaid. Lorca may have expected this outcome when sending Cornwell, given how calmly he takes the news of her capture.

* CrazyEnoughToWork: Stamets thinks that Burnham's idea to locate Sarek through an augmented mind-meld is "my kind of crazy".



* SpaceClouds: Sarek's shuttle is knocked out of warp in the middle of a highly radioactive nebula. The radiation scatters sensors and its size makes probes impractical for a search. ''Discovery'' can't fly in to get him because it would react explosively with their spore drive. Burnham has to fly in with a shuttle so she can get Sarek to activate his locator beacon.
