    Actually, it would be interesting for the Discovery to 'find' the hidden planet the race described in "Assignment Earth" calls home...BUT NOT REALIZE IT, WHILE THE AUDIENCE DOES. ;)

    Others have touched on this already, but I'd actually really love to see a tie-in with the di-kronium cloud creature and the USS Farragut disaster. Not necessarily because of Kirk (but bonus points if so), but because "Obsession" is a TOS episode I've always liked, and I find that creature fascinating.

    I'd like a prequel to "Whom Gods Destroy" about how Garth went crazy, crashed and learned cellular metamorphosis.

    Bonus points if they flash back to the Battle of Axanar in such a way that completely and utterly invalidates that dumpster fire of a fan film production.

    Not for another 10 years (DSC is at 2257, and "The Menagerie" is 2267).

    It has.

    And yeah, the Farragut disaster is also ripe for the taking. It's supposed to happen right about "now." And would probably be the only decent way Kirk could turn up on the show.

    Another possible sequel/prequel would be, first contact with the Capellans ("Friday's Child"). They are obviously aware of the Federation when that episode takes place, and McCoy says he's been there before. Maybe it was during DSC when McCoy's mission to Capella happened?

    Not exactly. It's been debunked they're required to make things 25% different, but there is apparently still a wish by TPTB to make things 25 % different.

    How does even one measure a 25% difference anyway? And if there is some table of differences that they ask to be applied, how isn't every Star Trek series at least 25% different than any of the others.

    It's a vague guideline.

    I would guess as long as it looks "different enough" it counts as being 25% different.

    Yeah, I'm really hoping we get to see a Xindi or a Suliban at some point on DSC.

    I too would like to see this.

    Actually I'd just love to Disco to do a TOS style space monster episode

    Didn't they kind of do that with the Tardigrade? At least in the first episode it appeared in.

    wasn't that giant sentient space databank episode this season exactly that?

    Not really, If they didn't have to blow it up using a starship or a shuttle it's not a monster. I want Discovery to do their equivalent of the doomsday machine or the space amoeba

    Discovery Season 3:

    Barrier: New Captain Saru is ordered to reactivate the Spore Drive and explore beyond the Galaxy. Unfortunately, a strange energy field disables the ship and they're attacked by the godlike crew of the SS Valiant

    The Craters: Two famous archaeologists hitch a ride with Discovery in order to investigate Professor Crater's Preserver theory on several abandoned planets. The Preservers, not wanting to be exposed, send a cadre of salt vampires after them.

    The Farthest Point: Saru and the ship deliver supplies to Deep Space Station 1, located in the Deneb system, farther than any other Federation outpost. A native insurgency erupts at Starfleet's presence, and issues regarding the Prime Directive are tossed aside when Discovery is attacked by the all-too-real Bandi Gods.

    Prophecy: The peaceful Cardassian people are under attack by their neighbors, the militaristic Fourth Bajoran Republic, who believe that their legendary messiah will come from amongst the stars following a devastating war. Lieutenant Bryce steps in after he is identified from ancient inscriptions to be the Bajoran messiah.

    Sporocystian: The jahSepp are at war with the Sporocystians within the mycelial network, causing mass deaths across the multiverse. Stamets and Tilly enter the network, at May's request, and convince the Sporocystians the value of life and to end their feud.

    Working Arrow: At an Enterprise reunion in Oklahoma, all surviving crew members of the NX-01 are abducted. Commodore April commandeers the Discovery to search for clues on the new Suliban homeworld. They are attacked by the Cabal, in concert with the Tholians, Xindi, the House of Klaang, and the Na'Kuhl, all controlled from the Sphere-based headquarters of a former Federation President who faked his own death and went mad.

    I came here to say this. It's actually a story that has some potential if done correctly.

    I'd also pay extra to see Robert April.

    At this point, it would surprise me if we don't see Robert April. Him and Kirk are the only captains of the 1701 who haven't been involved with the show yet. Though admittedly, Decker's involvement is rather insignificant.

    If Cadet Decker is still on the ship (unlikely), then it's funny to imagine that three Enterprise COs are all on Discovery at the same time.
