    It is — but not as much as “gravitationally interesting” ...!

    Wasn't it retconned that it was the sun in the Hobus system going supernova and not the Romulan sun, with the danger being the subspace shockwave? So the black hole wouldn't have been in the Romulan system.

    Other way around. Trek XI's prequel comic Countdown said it was a star named Hobus which went nova, while Picard retconned that it was in fact the star in the Romulus system.

    You look away for two seconds and continuity gets changed around on you ...

    Then I'm just going to assume that this retcon also changed whatever Spock wanted to do with the Red Matter, so he didn't set out to create a wormhole but planned something different (Red Matter is enough of a meaningless MacGuffin that we can shoo that in).

    Given the images of the folks in the conference room, I bet the Unification aspect is still being worked on. Hell I could see the Romulan faction that wants to join with Vulcan calling themselves something Spock related. That would cause strife with the discovery since from their eyes Romulans are the old enemy, and what would Spock be doing with them.

    I wonder if the Discovery crew (minus Burnham who probably encountered them in the lost year) is going to be shocked that the Romulans are related to Vulcans given that the ship pre-dates “Balance of Terror”. Or if they will just brush it off.

    My instinct says they're just going to brush it off.

    At this point, it would be more work than not to remind people they didn't know what Romulans looked like in DSC's original time period.

    Or, if they do explain, they won't spend more than two lines on it.

    It's not hard to brush it off with one line.

    "The sphere data tells us that the Romulans used to be Vulcans."
    That's really all they need to say.

    Yeah, they've been in the 32nd century long enough now to have caught up on major events that happened since the 23rd. The revelations that Romulans and Vulcans are pretty much one and the same would definitely be up there.

    Frankly, I'll be disappointed if they don't show at least one member of the Discovery crew reacting with surprise at learning that Romulans are related to Vulcans. It would be like if we found out via some throwaway line that Michael learned all about what became of Spock sometime in between the first and second episodes. For me at least, it seems like part of the fun of having the characters transplanted to the future is being able to see their reactions to stuff like this.

    Besides USS Yelchin, can anyone make out the name of the ships?
    Sounds like the Yelchin (RIP Anton) is the NCC-4774xx ship.

    USS Yelchin NCC-4774...
    USS Govnor?
    USS Geocony? EDIT: identified as USS Giaconi NCC-316608

    The fact there are guest stars already makes it not a bottle show.
