    The Fandom Menace would love for Burnham to be killed off. That's reason enough to never do it.

    If they'd want it, it's not good for the show. The End.

    Burnham's fate will to be the most decorated officer in Starfleet history. She will retire at the dawn of the 40th century, having lived longer than any human in history. At the age of 1000, she finally retires and goes into seclusion, where she enters a deep state of meditation, ascends and becomes the founding member of The Q Continuum.

    As for season 5 - how about Crisis of Infinite Burnhams. A mysterious multiversal threat emerges; entire regions of the known Universe begin winking out of existence. The walls of reality begin breaking down as multiple Burnhams begin appearing in the Prime Universe. The Multiverse threat / macguffin is converging on our Burnham. With the help of all the Burnhams, she takes Discovery (manned only by Burnhams) on it's most perilous mission yet. What is the mysterious threat eroding all of reality? Why are only Michael Burnhams being pulled from across the Multiverse into Prime Burnham's reality?

    It's like that scene in TNG Parallels, only instead of a region of space with multiple Enterprise Ds, it's a stadium with multiple Michael Burnhams. With the Michael Burnham from the Borg Victory universe of course being the Borg Queen.

    Awww, I wanted the Burnham from that universe to have Riker's wild beard.

    Burnham should be violently killed a different way at the end of every commercial break with Tilly pissing on her grave at the end of every episode.

    To do anything else is the height of disrespect.

    Our two ideas are not mutually exclusive.

    I have a feeling Picard Season 3 will air before Discovery Season 5. Discovery Season 5 doesn't start production until June, and Picard Season 3 finished filming a month ago.

    Hell, we might get SNW Season 2 before Discovery Season 5 as it is currently filming.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. Indeed, my current theory for how the coming shows after SNW season 1 ends is as follows
    Lower Decks S3
    Remainder of Prodigy S1
    Picard S3
    SNW S2
    Disco S5

    That seems very plausible/probable.

    The reduction in episodes is good. They managed to make a 2 to 2.5 hour story into over 10 hours. It was overly melodramatic and honestly boring. By the 5th episode I stopped carrying who or what the Dma was. Turns out it was more boring then even I expected when they were finally revealed. Yawn.

    Really? Species 10-C is awesome. What were you hoping for, some franchise deep cut?

    I was hoping for a truly evil species not another species that accidentally didn't realize it was killing another lifeform deal. Really boring.

    Agreed. 10-c was freaking cool. I'll take it over another evil alien race.

    I think you might have been setting yourself up for disappointment there. Star Trek generally doesn't do 'truly evil' all that much.

    I'm a pretty vocal DSC critic and I loved how exotic and alien Species 10-C was. This is the first DSC season finale to stick the landing and I'm glad they didn't recycle a trope or bring back some known alien species.

    I agree. While a lot of time was wasted on the build up, the species themselves proved to be very alien, which was good.

    So we can do another space battle and war? Ugh.

    There aren't even any, besides the Kelvans from TOS's "By Any Other Name". Who clearly already know how to communicate with Humans.

    Disco had to go where No Trek Has Gone Before with Species 10-C and I'm glad they did. DSC Season 4 was the most Star Trek-like Star Trek since TMP.

    The fact that a lot of people were bored by both says more about them than it does about Trek.
