    I'm on record being fine with the Burn being something original and well, for these writers, creative. It wasn't the Omega Molecule. It wasn't the Borg. The Temporal Cold War would have been acceptable but hardly original and they'd probably have screwed it up somehow.

    At least the Burn being caused by an anguished, grief-stricken Kelpien child wasn't out of the trope playbook.

    Not onscreen. The novel Vendetta says it (or, as it turned out, they) was created just outside the galactic barrier as a weapon against the Borg.

    I love how The Borg have become a go to thing for many writers whether that's a good thing or not am not sure.

    10-C may have just been regular old aliens who went all Gary Mitchell after crossing the galactic barrier

    Leviathan from Mass Effect. The guys who created the tentacle monster in the last episode of season one of Picard.

    So, of all the early guesses on here, it ended up being nope, nope, nah, uh-uh.

    I realize saying stuff retrospectively doesn't hold much weight, but I always took Michelle Paradise's words as gospel that this would be something truly new.

    The anomaly was caused by a giant alien who farted in a galaxy far, far away.
    Discovery will full the torpedo tubes with simeticone and fire them over the alien, which will become to cry, to much happy after the cure. After that, the Disco crew will become to cry and hug everyone, again.

    Kind of expected it to be a rogue splinter group of humans or something bonkers like that. But they didn't do a "shocking" twist this season and that's cool. Just giant alien things.
