* PlotHole: During the first part of the finale last season, ''Discovery'' was left with a skeleton crew consisting of: the characters in the credits (Burnham, Saru, Tilly, Stamets), the bridge crew (Rhys, Bryce, Owosekun, Detmer, Nilsson) and the special guest stars (Nhan, Georgiou, Reno, Culber). During this episode, Tilly claims there are 88 people back on board, besides her, Saru and the thus-far-MIA Burnham. This explains how Dr. Pollard and Linus the Saurian are still aboard, but does not explain why.

* RaceAgainstTheClock: If the crew doesn't get ''Discovery's'' systems back online by nightfall, the parasitic ice on the surface will cover the ship and crush it. They come in a bit late, leaving ''Discovery'' with too little thrust to break through the ice, but Burnham shows up in time for a rescue.

** Conversely, Tilly deduces that ''Discovery's'' stores of dilithium are valuable in a post-Burn future, ''despite not knowing what the Burn is'', simply because the Colony's ships don't have any.

* SoftSpokenSadist: Zareh speaks softly and carries a gun that kills people slowly and painfully. And he likes using it.


* GeniusBonus: When ''Discovery'' is out of control and about to collide with a piece of space debris, Detmer and Owosekun say "Brace! Brace! Brace!" in unison without explanation. In aviation, the verbal command warns everyone within earshot to brace for impact.


* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: Linus, a Saurian, says his visible spectrum is 74,000nm. For a human analogy, the average person can see from red to purple, but you can't look at a rainbow and say that the human spectrum is however wide the rainbow is.

* TheDogBitesBack: When disarmed and at the mercy of Georgiou and Saru, Zareh tries to get the Os'ir the bartender to help him by threatening to destroy the atmosphere if he does not. Os'ir instead lowers his weapon and seeks a better deal from Starfleet, which gets him Zareh's ship. Zareh then gets sent to the surface to brave the ice.

* SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay: Kal is reluctant to believe Saru and Tilly are Starfleet on their word alone, as they could have stolen ''Discovery''. Tilly proves it by quoting Starfleet regulations at them.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainHasAPoint: Georgiou's Terran mindset leads her to believe any reception to their landing won't be a welcome one, while Saru is more inclined to act diplomatically. She ends up being half-right when the locals turn out to be helpful while the one extorting them is not, and her intervention is the only reason things end well for Saru and Tilly.

Added DiffLines:

* PrecisionCrash: ''Discovery'' comes down within walking distance of a Coridanite mining settlement.
