Axanar dropped a plot spoiler about a month ago

and I just caught it.

in fact they say it two different times.

Looks like I was/may be at least partially right.

Yup.

People took that to be a continuity gaff, but it's really a cleverly worded bit of story telling.

I'm wondering if it's somewhat inspired by Patton's "ghost army" and other such strategies.

I've seen a lot of references to the "ghost army."

That would certainly be a good way to get all the Klingon big guns in one place, and Khan hasn't likely read about the Battle of Midway.

They've dropped a bigger spoiler in my view but I'm not gonna repeat it here since I wish I didn't know it. It's an awesome idea, though. Very clever.

^You could spoiler tag it and let people read it if they wanted to...

Spoilers never bother me- I know the Titanic sank but still enjoyed the movie.

As for the initial spoiler, yeah that's what I was thinking when Prelude came out. The wording choice and the general knowledge of events makes it seem obvious.

I can't spill it but I just saw that it is still online at Star Trek Axanar.com. What I can do is PM Tobias with full details and he can post whatever he wants here. He is part of the production and I am not. Maybe I am the only one that will find it spoilerish.
