    And we haven't even gotten to the reveals yet that T'Pol is Spock's grandmother and Terral is Tuvok's father. And of course we already know that Georgiou is Hoshi's descendant after last season ;)

    That's also the episode where they found Amelia Earhart alive and well. (No joke.) The ST universe is small indeed, and you never know who you'll bump into.

    It makes for easy writing. If the writers don't have any answers on what the Red Angels actually are, the season finale can just be filmed with the Discovery crew finding John de Lancie laughing at the source of the signals. He then disappears and the crew have no idea what just happened.

    It was low band FM signal. Somehow the radio kept working in the vacuum of space. All of your ideas sound more plausible.

    Plus finding the spacecraft from the first Mars mission or whatever.

    OMG! I totally forgot about that random Mars thing! They also seemed to run into a lot of Borg or former Borg that were assimilated in the Alpha Quadrant. The one woman from Wolf 359, I can't even.

    Just thought of this now. As in now... The Red Angels speak through Culber.

    Do you think they're also speaking through Tilly's friend?

    No matter how far you go, you cannot escape running into the Alpha Quadrant in the Delta Quadrant.

    I took a screenshot of what I think is the only full view we get of the Brightest Star obelisk, flipped it upside down and cleaned it up. It's really low res, but for your consideration:

    It is interesting that they've chosen a sketchy art style for the angel drawings that resembles the fungal filaments in both color and shape.

    If it's an upside-down obelisk, that means they're MU Preservers, no?

    Oh, and here's the best shot I can get of the language on Saru's alien tablet:

    For what it's worth.

    There’s a shot in one of the trailers that shows an alien language on the view screen. I can’t remember which one. But Detmer is in the shot

    Yeah that's it, looks similar to the Ba'ul language. Might be from the episode with Saru's sister.

    As the "New Eden" episode was progressing, I kept thinking that it has to be something like The Preservers, especially given that Spock recognizes it in "The Paradise Syndrome". He either has to get back to the Enterprise to get his lyre to figure out the symbols, or has to wait 13 or so years for the Communicators to be upgraded to a new opening beep and Kirk to take command in order to call the ship a certain way to decipher it all!

    I didn't think Spock exactly recognized the symbols in The Paradise Syndrome. He described it as "evidently, some form of writing," and later on he determines that it's "a highly advanced form of cipher writing." That doesn't imply much familiarity.

    But doesn't he start trying to play them on his lyre? I remember McCoy coming into his cabin, Spock playing the lyre and him mentioning that they weren't words, but a form of music, then tells McCoy the story about The Preservers.

    Yes, he managed to discover that they were musical notes after many sleepless days of analysis and pondering. I thought the dialog implied that Spock learned about the Preservers from those symbols once he figured out how to "read" them.
