    Oh good grief. I just realized that they're going to be jumping through hoops to justify why they can meet Romulans.

    CBS warned Axanar in August last year. They moved to legal action towards the end of 2015. While a TV show was announced at the end of last year under Alex Kurtzman's supervision, Bryan Fuller - who conceptualised and developed this show - was hired this year, moths later.

    Neither CBS nor Fuller had the foresight to sue a fan production for an idea that they didn't have yet. I'm sure some will spin it that way, but by all realms of logic, it's just not the case. Check the fan films section for more info. Get comfy though as there's a lot of info.

    .....I'm not sure how you extrapolate that information form the tweets you provided or how they relate. Unless you're suggesting she start here and end up in Nemesis era by the final season. By which she'd have aged 114 years.

    Or, maybe he's simply suggesting "All good things must come to an end." :shrug:

    When Bryan Fuller commented on how the rumours of it being an Anthology were not entirely accurate, and he responds with "all good things" which took place in multiple time periods. Perhaps this is part of the premise for the show or series, and we may not spend all our time in the same era.

    I am almost 95% sure I am overthinking things, but its fun to read into everything :P

    ^ Yep. Thats the first thing I'd have got from it. And I doubt there'd be many time jumping elements going that far anyway. the idea of a new show would surely be capture a new audience, not just pander to us by showing them everything else the new audience should have watched?

    That's likely sure. But the fact the lead character has "many ranks" and caveats with her Lieutenant Commander rank... Does allow a slight possibility that he chose those two identical replies cleverly.

    Or alternatively, as the phrase also goes, 'All good things come to those who wait'.

    Hilariously, Alec wanted Richard Robau (or "Rick Rabau" in the script) in Axanar and supposedly hoped Faran Tahir would reprise the role.:rofl:

    Unless the remarks that Section 31 "might" appear are a reference to making the events of the Enterprise continuation novels canon by having an operative aboard. Romulans mentioned only during the covert talks to their handler.

    This is what I'm thinking and I like this idea the most. The first season will be an introduction to some conflict, but it doesn't get resolved right away. Something like Star Wars, 3 different generations, but all more or less the same story. Or Khitomer in TOS movies and then continued on in TNG.

    Unfortunately, that one is properly "good things come to those who wait", or sometimes "all things come to those who wait", not as you have it.

    Or we could just finally ignore a minor plot point from 50 years ago that didn't really alter the episode in question and just have them see each other. Probably easier.

    That's not the phrase. 'All good things...' ends '... Come to an end' as in the TNG finale title. He is saying that the TNG era has come to an end.

    Edit: Epically ninja'd

    Or we can not to that, becasue easier is not always better.

    Discovery Writers: "Oh, my fingers they're so heavy, they just have to type Romulan. Ugggh."
    Fuller: "Yes, but Romulan's were never seen."
    Discovery Writers: "Please have mercy! My fingers! If I type anything but Romulan they will break off!"
    Fuller: "Ok, fine. If that's easier. Just write Romulan and we'll come up with some convoluted reason why we're seeing them."

    Except that when you don't have to constantly explain why your crew who can see everyone else can't see the Romulans, that really is better.

    I may be being overly simplictic Surely the easier solution is just to not write anything about Romulans? There's no NEED for something like that, really.

    True, that works too. But I know how bad Trek writers are at keeping their hands out of the cookie jar of old baddies.
