    If you don't know what they are, how do you know they're not interesting?

    You'll note that I unliked this post so I could like it twice.

    It hasn’t captured my attention so far but I’ll still watch just to see what happens.

    I have patience but the whole idea never really seemed that interesting to me. I’m kinda getting to my limit with these season spanning stories (this goes for a lot of shows). DS9 did it better IMO. A season(s) long story but broken up with comfy episodes of the week. I’ll still watch, but I won’t post here all that much.

    Theory: if there IS a conflict between the Angels and themselves or some other "Demon" types, any appearances of Culber this series will actually be Stamets thinking he sees him in the network but in reality one of the Angels feeding him intel/clues. If fact, if this is the case, Culber's appearances in the network last series might have been the Angel ensuring that Discovery made it back from the MU safely, knowing it would need their help in the future.

    If the Angels are linked to the network, they also had a vested interest in helping Stamets undo the damage his MU counterpart had done.

    Burnham saw one of the red angels in the first episode, but it turned out to be Pike coming toward her. The implication was that it was an illusion but there is a scene in one of the trailers where she claims she saw a red angel.

    DS9 had roughly 24 episodes per season to pad out occasionally with comfy stand alone episodes while still advancing the overall arc.

    No such luxury here.

    Don't think it was Pike..........Pike just interrupted what she was seeing.......Much like Han arriving while Luke was talking to Ben in ESB.

    If Red Shirts were good Officers, they become Red Angels. :angel:

    Had to get that one out of the way! But for my serious answer: It's all in Burnham's inner dialogue at the beginning when she says ash was thrown up into the sky to create the Milky Way with a message being out there. I'm guessing there's a message hidden in the stars that an Advanced Ancient Race is trying to communicate to those who can piece it together.

    Whether the message is simple, complex, a guide to the galaxy, or a warning of something to come, I don't know for sure, but I'm guessing a warning of something to come.

    But I like what Locutus came up with a lot, too. I think he might've nailed it.

    I doubt the angles represent the seven seals. Seals look totally different and smell like fish

    Hey, if the E-D can have a Cetacean Ops room, Disco can have seals with frickin' phasers on their heads.

    They're all the redshirts that have died in the history of Star Trek who are coming back to haunt them.

    I had the very same idea in the Opening Credits thread.

    Hmmm... I’m intrigued by the dark matter asteroid properties / discovery Tilly was investigating - and it’s future implications... (an aspect of the ‘revelation’ of knowledge perhaps, as Locutus’s early posited?)
