    There's a scene in the first episode where it's revealed that, upon returning to Earth, the doctor was examined by the leading AI experts in the Federation, unanimously determined to not actually be sentient and he was permanently deactivated.

    The only thing I would want is a passing mention of how she was executed after her invasion plan failed spectacularly. :rofl:

    Y'know, they might have missed an opportunity...instead of Rios, the shady, ex-Starfleet, rogue captain could have been O'Brien, who took up that line of work to get away from Keiko.

    He'd never leave Molly though.

    Maybe it was those three small ships housing a few thousand Romulan soldiers that was supposed to succeed at subjugating an entire planet. I'm sure it seemed like a good idea at the time, though.

    To this day, I was never able to make sense of what the fuck that was all supposed to be about. It turned a moderately okay two-parter into a joke.

    She'd be all grown up and might be out there somewhere doing her own thing anyway.

    If Rios is supposed to represent the action element, I would think Meaney may be too old at this point in his career to pull it off.

    He can do shady and corrupt really good, though. He was awesome on Hell on Wheels.

    "Unification will become...a fact of life."

    "Sir, should we contact the Enterprise and attempt to thwart her plan?"

    "What plan? No, Mr. Data, this 'plan' will fail spectacularly on its own. It simply makes no sense."

    "Indeed. It is most illogical. Vulcans will immediately identify and overwhelm this small number of Romulan 'invaders.' No further action is required on our part. Shall we retire for a round of Romulan ale?"

    "Lead the way, Ambassador."

    It just made no fucking sense. They were going to control a planet of billions, deep in Federation space with 2,000 troops and a Warbird? I guess more could've been cloaked, with a lot more troops. But then the ruse really makes no sense, as they could've been to Vulcan via cloak and beaming down troops before anyone knew what was going on. "Spock's" message just drew attention to them.

    I think they should show the bridge. Not any footage from the '80s or '90s, mind you. Nope. Recreated from scratch for 2020. ;)

    In an unexpected plot twist, the mysterious young lady Dahj is actually Molly, who has been kidnapped and experimented on by a rogue Borg faction and lost her memories of her previous life. Or something.
