    Season 3 perhaps will bring in kirk.

    I think all the main TOS cast will be introduced by the time discovery run its course. kirk, mccoy, uhura, sulu, chapel.

    Now Saru has evolved into Balls of Steel Saru™, I can see him being captain next season.

    Season 6 will bring in Captain Ed Leslie, who will berate the Discovery crew for their unprofessional behavior and ignoring the rules. He gets demoted to Crewman.

    Perhaps he could appear, but, I'd rather Discovery not become a stage for the TOS characters to return just because it's in their era. I wouldn't mind a low-key name drop on occasion, though. It would be funny to hear Kirk's name mentioned during that time period given that he isn't the famous Starfleet legend he eventually becomes.

    I predict she'll be captain by end of this season or next season.

    If they were doing a new show and told me Sonequa Martin-Green was going to be playing the captain, I think it would work. But I don't think Michael Burnham as captain does.

    I thought his legend began with the Kobayashi Maru when he was a cadet

    I thought it was because everybody thought that Kirk had nice legs.

    "A stack of books with legs," Mitchell called him. :shrug:

    Nah, he just altered a few computer records to make it seem so.
