Absolutely. I remember spending hours back in the eighties debating who "the other" Yoda mentioned in Empire was. It's inevitable that people are going to speculate about upcoming high-profile movies.

Just as long as people remember they're just theories.

I keep bumping into people on-line who genuinely seem to think that it's been "confirmed" that the villain is Gary Mitchell or Khan or a Klingon or whomever. And so misinformation spreads like wildfire . . . even unto IMBD.

Clearly this is undeniable proof that Harrison is a Borg. Think about it.

Shilliam Watner has made Benedict Cumberbatch cry.

Shame on you, Shilliam. (Say that three times fast)

If be a joke makes it amusing, then yes it is a joke thread.
If taking it seriously is amusing, then it is a very serious thread. Very serious indeed.

Not to mention the absolutely nutty hoopla surrounding the identity of the final fifth Cylon. I remember reading essays on the internet that read like veritable philosophy texts with all the speculation going on. (I of course knew who it was the whole time and was delightfully proven correct...even though none of the internet "experts" figured it out )

Re: New Image Released Showing Harrison With Raised Spinal Ridges

If those were really Klingon ridges, they'd continue on and be visible on Harrison's neck. At least if we were talking TMP Klingons (which had ridges much larger than any other version of Klingon).

I do like (but not expect) the idea that Harrison could be Arne Darvin, though.

Nope. Those are ridges. He's a Klingon augment who's infiltrated Starfleet.
You'd think they'd have caught that during his first medical.
Not if it was performed by McCoy.

This is creating more speculation on Harrisons character on other forums. My first initial thoughts was that he was Arn Darvin, a Klingon infiltrator but this time a augment with superior strength. And with Kirk and crew chasing him to the Klingon home world just confirms my position that I could be right.




See here:

And what do you think these two redshirts are looking at on John Harrisons back? Look at their eye positions.

I guessed 3 out of the first 4 that were revealed, but, they got me on the 5th. Though, I saw many people who's theories were ultimately correct on that final 5th Cylon, despite the mental gymnastics you had to go through to arrive at that character's identity

Anybody else think the OP just stole Christopher's idea for a villain for his next book?

This is proof positive that Fistybatch's character is actually a dilophosaurus and Star Trek is really Jurassic Park V.
