    Really doubt anyone would violate their NDA to leak information to Rob.

    RMB does have industry contacts. And he may have heard things. Or has seen a script. But sometimes the final product comes out better than a script or a description of something.

    But they’re pretty stupid to share info with him if that’s the case.

    Nah.

    She’s a Kelvin Mirror Universe Section 31 agent. And, I don’t know, a Breen, on top of all of it.

    These guys are such pompous blowhards. I hope he follows through on his threat and just shuts up and moves on to something else.

    Chance of that happening is near zero, tho. They're fueled by their hatred.

    I have to agree. Harlan only contributed to one episode of TOS, just putting his name in there is a big spoilery hint.

    I think there should be a spoiler tag on this thread.

    Yeah, I was about to post and suggest that spoiler tags be added to this thread. No reason this be spoiled for people watching the show, especially those enjoying it.

    Personally, I'm now absolutely excited to see Terra Firma because of this. And something tells me I'm not the only one.

    As long as it doesn't have Kimberly Guilfoyle unhinged shouting THE BEST IS YET TO COME. I'll be ok.

    The guardian can access any independent timeline that did does and will exist. Will it show anyone A timeline not their own Is a good question.

    Doctor Who suggests multiple universes or timelines.

    Ellison suggests GoF.

    Not sure how any of that is a big deal though. It’s not like Trek hasn’t dealt with that type of storyline before.

    This has me very excited about the episodes. I'm curious what they can possibly do to illicit such a reaction.

    I always like it when creatives swing for the fences.

    I'm also very excited about any connections to COTEOF!
    Mirror Edith was furious that Kirk let her die, so she started the Burn!

    There’s absolutely no way that this ends his “association with modern Trek.” He’ll keep banging on about it every week because he can’t help himself.

    Why are certain corners of this fandom so dramatic? More so than any other fandom outside of Star Wars, maybe. It’s so exhausting.

    If RMB hates it, I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

    I read his Axanar script. He talks a lot of shit about Trek but can't write it.
