Now we need a year for Season 2. It most likely started in 2257, but when did it end?
"The Vulcan Hello" --> May 11th, 2256
+ 6 months (Burnham in prison)
"Context Is for Kings" --> November 2256
+ A few months (Burnham on Discovery under Lorca)
"Into the Forest I Go" --> Early 2257
+ 9 months (time jump)
"The War Within, The War Without" --> Fall 2257
+ 2 months (Pike's command of Discovery)
"Such Sweet Sorrow" --> Very-Late 2257 or Very-Early 2258
+ 3 months later
End of "Such Sweet Sorrow" --> Around March or April 2258
Unless I hear otherwise, I'm going with the third season taking place in 3188.
I have to agree, "Such Sweet Sorrow" felt like it took three or four months to watch.
I believe that They are saying that it's going to be the year 3187.
At least that is what Kurtzman is quoted as implying at SDCC last month.
1987: TNG Premiered
1987: I was watching ALF instead.
2387: Romulus Exploded
3187: Disco's Grand Return
'87 is pretty significant.
Well, it's three times twenty-nine... That's all I got.
Thousands of Tardigrades Stranded on the Moon After Lunar Lander Crash
They're all freeze dried and not likely to reanimate any time soon.
I just hope when they do re-hydrate, they don't conquer the moon.
I don't get the purpose of that mission. Why send human DNA and tardigrades on the Moon, to begin with? If it's to send a message to extraterrestrials then it makes no sense whatsoever. From the point, of view of someone traveling light-years, the Moon, and the Earth are practically at the same distance from wherever they come from!!!
My understanding is that it's also to try and preserve something of the Human Race for many millions of years into the future.
I guess one could call it a Time Capsule by Humanity to some distant Future Generation of Ourselves.
(hopefully, overall a better version than some of the current crop)
Just think. If we ever have to be revived as a species, the default backup is Humanity from 2019...
... why can't this be the 23rd Century?
According to the laws of physics, information is indestructible, even by a black hole, apparently, So no matter for how long you will have been dead, the info to put you back together atom by atom will always be there somewhere. With enough science, no one will ever die.
20 years ago today, I first registered on TrekBBS. My very first post was jumping into a discussion about the fifth series, before we knew what the concept would be. Some wanted to go back to the TOS/TNG style of doing things. I said, right from my very first post, that I didn't want to see a copy of a copy of a copy. 20 years, and half my life later, I'm glad to see Discovery and Picard aren't just a copy of a copy of a copy.
Weren’t we supposed to get a couple of animated Short Treks this year?
God has it been that long already?
I started lurking daily in early 2000.
(it was December of '99 when I first stumbled across the place)
Don't really remember the actual date I first registered, but I can't believe that it's been Twenty Years already, I'm still only 15 !!!
I thought so too, but it appears we aren't getting anything till after the New Year.
15. That's the age my father always says he is.
Why? Because, in his words, "everything's illegal!"
No it was supposed to be Shark Treks. But it was hard to get the costumes on the sharks.
I hope these weren't loan sharks.
I know Pike was always supposed to be the Captain for Season 2 but i'm kinda curious who the captain on Vulcan was.
