Started watching the show last night and just finished it this morning. I had low expectations, but thankfully the show exceeded them by a fair margin. I didn't like Mariner much at all throughout the season, but where it left off at the end I'm hoping she's toned down somewhat. I'm all for a character that bends the rules, but too often she went from maverick to just plain rude for absolutely no reason. Thankfully Boimler, Rutherford and Tendi were really great so it helped cover it up somewhat. In regards to the finale... Spoiler Seeing the Titan (and looking the same as she has in the novels and STO) was great, especially when she flies in all guns blazing and the TNG theme blaring. Great stuff. Hopefully we'll see more of her in S2, but I have a feeling Boimler will find his way back to the Cerritos all too soon.
