Assuming that DISC gets a third season, should the Discovery crew run into a young James Kirk? Why or why not? And at what point? I can see a scenario where either there is a throw-away line that reference Kirk, or the crew meeting Kirk in passing. As far as I am aware, the incident involving the Cloud Creature and the USS Farragut took place at the same time as the first season of DISC, but this season of DISC takes place before Kirk became an academy instructor. So, as of this season, Kirk would be either under the scrutiny of Starfleet, due to the events of involving the Cloud Creature, or on leave recuperating from his experience before becoming an instructor. Thoughts?
