    True, they are similar concepts. But I was actually trying to reference this. :lol:

    This idea of weaponized tribbles amazes me. Who are you who are so wise in the ways of military science?

    Weaponized tribbles would be a war crime.

    I don't think so, because of this:

    Which implies Harry Mudd only appears in one episode.


    Speculation: The binary stars are the center of the Boreth system. Over the course of the war the border shifts and puts it deeper into Klingon space.

    But the evidence blows up, so in court the evidence won't be any tribble at all.

    I suspect a major Deus Ex Machina coming at the end of the season... some time travel event preventing Sarek from saving Michael from the attack on the learning centre.

    The result of Michael dying as a child will cause events to change, the war will still happen, but T'Kuvma will not be killed, and neither will Georgiou, and a resolution will be easier.

    I have to stress it's not what I want to see, but, you know, expect the worst and all...

    I don't think they would retcon away the main character like that.

    I know the concept is very contrived, and pointless... which is why I suspect it. :D

    Lorca and Tilly are deep cover Klingons.

    If they did that, I would demand that every single person involved with producing this show quit their current jobs and pursue other lines of work that they would be better in.

    Which would then hearken back to Roddenberry's past as working for the LAPD!

    (I know, I'm reaching...)

    So that made the USS Glenn "unnecessary use of radio"...

    As in "waste of space"/redship?

    I was actually thinking more along the lines of subtle commentary on the nature of their actions.

    Black badge uniforms, Lorca's "carte blanche" to do whatever is needed to win the war, and even Discovery's number... cmon! Section 31 anyone?
