So has Mitchell. (Jenna Mitchell not Gary)
I don’t think that the Romulan ship Captain is Sarek’s twin this time. So it could be this un named female Romulan:
Personally I'd find it a fun nod to have Gia Sandhu cast as the Romulan Commander similar to Mark Lenard and Lawrence Montaigne's situation.
Romulan BoP and the new ship class, plus possibly the same comet from Balance of Terror
Another hint of what we’re seeing might not be real
Spoiler: season 2 filming
The shots of La’an and Kirk filming on the streets of Toronto for season 2, La’an doesn’t have gold rank stripes. At the very least implies this time skip isn’t permanent
That ship looks like a bit like a Derf. Provided that’s a top view we’re seeing. Horrible name but neat design.
So, I guess the question is, what does Pike do differently than Kirk that causes events to go wrong if he's in command of Enterprise? Because this is looking a lot like another riff on the "path not taken" trope where someone gets their wish for a different life and it all goes to shit.
Alternatively, what does Pike do as fleet commander that prevents everything from going to shit on the border if he does accept his fate and take the promotion?
It’s the bottom, you see the top a couple frames earlier
if we're going with alternate timeline, you know Kirk is gonna be on the ship that gets destroyed.
Ah so we're thinking this sudden uniform change (especially to Uhura and Chapel) is a subtle visual indicator of something going awry with the timeline.
Well this news suddenly makes the wedding scene from the trailer make a whole lot more sense
I hope the happy couple updated their wills.
All Pike have to do is tell Star Fleet the type ships that has a problem, they will be removed from the fleet saving everyone lives and keeping Pike out of the wheel chair.
That's what I think happen. Pike told Una and she told Star Fleet and they decommission those ships.
The tragedy of fate.
Photos and episode synopsis
Honestly don't like that. I want his integrity as a starfleet officer to be the reason why he chooses to keep his fate, not some vision of a bad future. But whatever, the episode sounds and looks cool.
They haven’t had very many stumbles in S1 so I trust them for the finale. But I’m not sure about the idea of Pike essentially being guilted into accepting his fate.
Based on the preview clip, it seems Pike's desire to change the future has less with averting his own fate and more with attempting to save the life of someone he knows dies in the accident. So, I can see this scenario working while still maintaining Pike's integrity. That is, seeing how much worse the future will get, Pike learns he has to embrace the full version of his fate, and that includes letting those who die die.
That is the lovely thing about the way Pike's been written. That he's so other-centered regarding the eventual accident has turned what seem to have been some dire expectations about his arc becoming a dirge for (yet another) inward-looking character on their heads.
What wedding scene?
