Theories

19 comments

You guys here’s a little thread for theories. In general I like to sit back and just watch but......*for funsies* lets hear ideas of possibilities on things.

 

i was making a gif this a.m. and I noticed when Leland goes into override the ship and get more power, before he gets eye poked...the computer voice, that we now know was control, has a slight British accent....just like Zora in Calypso. I still keep feeling like this will connect to Calypso in some way and realizing this, firms my belief up. We’ve never heard an accent in a computer that I can remember except in these two incidences. Thoughts? Ideas?

Yes, I love this idea for a thread! I, too, think that "950" years and "nearly a thousand years" is not a coincidence, and that Zora will factor somehow. But, Calypso clearly takes place in a universe with people, so it's not the same future that Doctor Burnham is hanging out in. But this is why we have a spore drive, isn't it?

 

I think we all expected Michael Burnham to get into that Angel Suit last episode, but she didn't. But will she? Is she perhaps responsible for the Seven Red Signals?

Yeah I still think it is possible she does use the suit some how. And I kind of wonder if Alcor IV includes or is Terralycium. He's a descendant of Jacob? Ah. I really have no idea but gosh, I sure lean towards the Calypso angle over the "borg origin". A lot of people will be mad at red herring's (they are mad if the writers drop too many real hints. They are mad if they throw in red herrings...catch 22 - but I'm sure there is a bit of knee jerk reaction from last years Voq/Lorca things panning out too early). And I also think who is to say AI didn't use some of that info Enterprise collected back in the Regeneration episode for it's own purposes. I'm sure the AI has that info once it's tapped into the S31 ships.

Also I don't know if you would call this a theory, but kind of. My theory as to how Dr. Burnham moved the church is she has what amounts to "suit enhancers", like transporter enhancers, that she attached to the church. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

OK question. So is the time paradox too that the AI *got* what it needed to become sentient and this is the incursion where it came to get what it needed. So it IS sentient but it hasn't yet gotten the data it needed to be sentient? So even though it is sentient because it got the data, it has to go back and get it? Is this the time paradox?

My limited understanding of the time paradox. The sphere data enabled control to become sentient. Dr. Burnham is using time travel to attempt to prevent that. Control is using time travel to stop her and achieve sentience earlier by getting the data. I think as long as the sphere data and control exist in same times the destruction outcome happens.

 

If Discovery and Dr. Burnham are successful they can prevent that outcome. The outcome isn't from the past that Discovery is in, so there is no time paradox issue for them I think. This is my interpretation and is probably incorrect in some way I don't know.

We know Dr. Burnham has tried to destroy the sphere data and failed. What we don't know is if she tried to stop control for being made and why that failed.

OK, ship theories. The data protects itself. The data shuts down self-destruct? (Unless they are planning to use the Ent to blow it up but I doubt it). So they have to hide Discovery somewhere. Using the time crystal, they jump to the point in time where Disco is in the same era as Dr. Burnham who has made her way there (somehow ok?) and then they can time travel it back to now.

I predict that the final scene of the season is going to be Spock walking out of the bathroom, freshly shaved, with arched eyebrow.

Well, it'll def happen but I don't think it will be the last scene. 7 quatloos that it will be the end of THIS episode. :D

Here’s a little retrospective for Season 2 and yeah, it’s all about Michael. I made itfor the twitter account I do But could only put a shorter version there. I like this one better. https://youtu.be/T5OILaF9Or0

How's this for a theory? Burnham goes back in time and tells her parents not to work for Section 31. With any luck, that means the time suit never exists, the Klingons don't break up and/or kill the Burnham family, Michael never lives on Vulcan or joins Starfleet, the Klingon war doesn't happen and we can forget the events of the last two seasons ever occurred. Works for me.

No. That is the thing I’m most afraid of and would ruin all of Discovery for me. I am INVESTED in these journeys. I don’t want two years of viewing mean nothing. (Plus then Georgiou won’t exist and she’s getting a show).

  • I had missed some of the bonus content and am finally getting to your coverage of S1 ep1 Caretaker. I've really enjoyed it. I have seen the first 3 or 4 seasons back when they originally aired but haven't seen any since then. I can't say that Voyager stuck with me, it's my least favorite Trek. So my question for anyone is: What are the 5-10 best episodes of Voyager?
  • I am not the biggest Voyager fan. The series never lived up to the potential I thought it had. So my disappointment in it is all on my end as a viewer. That being said I recently watched the premiere episode again and was impressed by how good it was. The intro starts with a text crawl that looks like it came from a 16 bit video game. Its terrible. I don't think it was needed, some other contextual clue would have been better. The intro then drops us right in the action with Maquis being chased by Cardassians and disappearing. This is more action than most episodes get right off the bat. The main function of a premier is to show us the crew, the ship and the setting. Voyager does an excellent job introducing the crew. Disgraced officers, rebels and a mix of new and veteran Starfleet personnel promises for an interesting show. Captain Janeway is fully fleshed out from the get go, they did a great job making her character feel real for the audience. The cameo by Quark is also very well used, setting up a crucial friendship between Paris and Kim. They spend enough time and give us something about all of our main cast here which is a very strong start. The ship doesn't need alot of time and doesn't get it. It can't compare to the Enterprise so they don't try. It's a smart choice. The plot in how they ended up in the situation is where this gets a little thin. I actually think they would have been better served by making the alien more incomprehensible rather than a hologram that babbles. Janeway makes a difficult and understandable choice, but if I was a crewman I would be mightily pissed off. This is a strong start for the series and is the second best premier, after DS9, in my opinion. It was way lower for me prior to this rewatch, so I am somewhat surprised by Voyager here.
