    I'm still pissed they never added the swashbuckling Emergency Armed-Security Hologram - "Aramis!

    Although it looks like helping with security is the return of Emmet ETH Emergency Tactical Hologram

    Looks like Seven is La Sirenas new Cap, and she deactivated all the other Rios EHs, exept for Emmet! :lol:

    She obviously chose the coolest one - El Chileno!

    Also with their collective yet fractured engrams, he's likely the only one who "remembered" where Rios kept the Aguardiente;)

    The Stargazer will need a pretty huge shuttlebay to bring La Sirena on board. I'm not sure it'd even fit into Discovery. Then again the Stargazer looks like a pretty huge ship.

    Why xo has his lighter?
    [​IMG]
    Rios - !Dale! ...nothing.

    Rios - Make it so
    Agnes - It's your own fault you know. No one told you to accept a command with baggage...

    True he needs his own ahead call.

    She said in the episode that she combined them all into Emmet.

    Edit: Oh I missed the date of the post whoops.

    Maybe the lighter is shorthand for who is in command at that moment.

    So, you've never smoked?
    There has to be a reason.

    Irrelevant.

    It's a fun little moment in a show about crew interactions. Not how to smoke 1010101010.

    I do like the twist that his version is in Spanish, though ("¡Dale!", which is why Agnes is giving him the quizzical look).
    Feels like a good mix of Rios's own style and the tradition he's inheriting.

    Did he "Give" or just "Loan" 'La Sirena' to Seven.

    Emmet (Rios) kicked ass!
    And surprisingly caring, non judgmental and sympathetic to Seven's predicament.
    Although she's not wanting to hear it from him.

    Emmet (after he helps take out the pirates) - You ever consider a flesh and blood crew?
    Seven - No
    Emmet - Of course, a lifetime of humans reacting with fear and prejudice, to your Borg enhancements. May have inhibited developmentally appropriate relationship skills.
    Seven- Stop talking
    Emmet - You're the boss.

    Although apparently what she did was merge all the holos into one.

    Apologies, put that in the wrong thread so replying to you here.
    Yeah I really liked them, Emmet was my favorite, and I like his dynamic with Seven, but I do hope it's not the end of the rest.

    I'm still a little bit devastated that she merged the holos. I know we might not see them again at all, depending how the end of the season shakes out for Sirena, and I didn't expect to see any of them at all. But it's still really sad.

    I love that you can see glimpses of the other holos in Emmet now, though. Ian (and/or Steward) commenting on the railing needing to be fixed, Emil's caring counseling (take that, Rogue Elements ;9 ), Enoch making him generally more talkative and less monosyllabic... Those are really nice touches!

    But I'm still choosing believe they'll get un-merged sooner rather than later, even if we don't see it happen on the show.

    Mostly just wherever I happen to be at the time.
    it’s an interesting premise — and the (indirect) link to Rios is a nice touch.

    Given that she was at the Academy with Picard, Marta Batanides is presumably of a similar age to Jean-Luc and therefore also now in her mid-90s…? Aging being somewhat less of a problem by this time, that doesn’t mean they would have to cast an actor quite that old but Batanides, should we ever meet her again, would clearly be relatively elderly by the time of Picard, at least somewhat equivalent to Patrick Stewart’s age.

    Oh wow, that was just spit-balling way back when all we had was the S2 Q "time " teaser and nothing else. So episode "Tapestry" came to mind.
    Way before all the totalitarian timeline and Borg narrative was established as the focus
    Hadn't thought of Batanides since.

    Although it seems like they are now playing Laris in a similar - what if Picard had played a different hand ...then he wouldn't be the same Picard - theme, as Tapestry.
    [​IMG]
    Just sub Laris. I'm guessing this time he does get to play that second hand, and by end does get to end up with Laris.

    Anyway don't want to derail to much here, reason Batanides was mentioned here, was yeah the spurious connection to Cristobl Rios.

    Would they really risk messing with the fabric of space/time by replacing J.C. Brandy like they did when they snubbed Brian Brophy

    Problem is she is only in her mid 40's at this point so to play someone of a similar age to the Picard of present day would mean aging her up.

    As for Laris I'm expecting whatever they do to fix the timeline will have a side affect, Picard will finally have the courage to tell her how he feels but Zhaban will now be alive.
