    Seems to me that's quite a big spoiler that has probably upset a lot of people (including me). It was probably obvious they'd do something like that anyway, but still... Try to be considerate of others before you post.

    The title of this thread is "Spoilers" though.

    Yeah, don't enter a thread that has the red SPOILER banner in the title and bitch about spoilers. You were warned, you should have known what to expect.

    I will say, I was expecting something like this. My theory is that the Red Angel will show the characters their future. Pike will see his injury, Spock will see his death in TWOK, and Michael will see something that will be featured in the third season.

    I've been in this thread since the beginning. The spoilers, up to this point, have been:

    1. We'll see the Enterprise bridge, and it's faithful to the original but updated.
    2. The turbolift funhouse was done after the fact and not originally planned.
    3. Various other tidbits related to production and staff.

    They don't say anything about upcoming storylines or events in the show (everyone already knew we'd see the E-bridge). This latest one seems very different. And even though the thread title has "Spoilers" in it, you can still have the courtesy to hide something big like that.

    Actually you missed in the first post the "spoiler" of the discovery being evacuated as well. So there.

    So your upset over the revelation that Pike's injury that's been know to fandom for fifty years will be seen, but knowing that Disco's being abandoned doesn't bother you at all? Got it.

    Regardless, if spoilers bother you, you shouldn't enter a thread labeled SPOILERS. It's a two-way street, and you do have a responsibility to avoid spoilers yourself if that bothers you. If you see a spoiler in a thread labeled SPOILERS that's your fault, not the person posting the forewarned spoilers.

    Considering that happens 10 years in ST: D's future, I hope that's not the case, unless they do a quick 'Flash Forward' of some type. The accident where Pike goes in saving many Cadets lives but being exposed to horrible radiation doesn't occur until circa 2266 (per TOS S1 - "The Menagerie (Part I)" .

    All we know is that Spock saw the future, the Red Angel is probably from the future, and Georgiou knows about the future up through "The Tholian Web". So all of them can know what will happen to Pike.

    Possessed Ariam might know too.

    Well, we don't know what happened - we only know what the heroes were told happened. We never saw a cadet who would have been saved by Pike, say, and we certainly didn't get to point a psychotricorder at him or her to verify the claim.

    But can we wiggle out of when it happened? If Pike was claimed to be sailing with cadets, he probably wasn't claimed to have been on an eight-year mission to the unknown from 2258 to 2266 (while he in fact was confined to a wheelchair all that time, recovering from the wounds of having flown too close to the Sun in that suit).

    Hoity, does the bridge take inspiration from this concept?

    Doesn’t match what I heard in any way.

    That's a bummer. But still...can't wait to see what that bridge is going to look like.

    The Red Angel situ involves time travel. Spock remembers the future. Even if Pike doesn't get mangled for 10 years doesn't mean they can't show it, in a flashforward if nothing else.

    Trust me the real thing makes that concept look like an old rust bucket.

    IDK - I'd hate that only because it would mean Spock knew it was going to happen and said nothing, or somehow was formulating a plan for those 10 years and saying nothing, etc.

    I enjoyed the subtext "If Memory Serves" already adds to both "The Cage" and the Spock/Pike situation in "The Menagerie"; but IMO there' a point where you can take things to far - and such a 'flash forward' would be too far IMO.

    I‘m not sure I understand: Have you yourself seen images of the Enterprise bridge set or did your friends who are working on the show just describe it to you, @Hoity Toity?

    I saw bits of it (not full wide shots) and spoke to 4 people on the show about it. Honestly I didn't want to see the whole thing. I could also find out who the red angel is but I don't want to either. :)
