This is my thread every on TrekBBS, but here goes: I've read a lot of critics wondering that since Discovery has a spore drive it could have been taken anywhere in the universe, thus affording easy escape from Control and even being sent to the future without having to take the risk of getting into a fight. But I think the better question is, what is the benefit of Discovery sitting right where it is, where the Federation is concerned, looking pretty much alone and vulnerable. What do people think? Is this criminally stupid/insane? Or is it a Garry Kasparov gambit?
