    I could probably handwave it away by saying it has something to do with the quantum signature of her body overall that is a stronger driving factor than the molecules in her body. Where’s Andre Bormanis when you need him to concoct some sort of “tech the tech” reason to make it make sense?

    I'm going to say it has something to do with the quantum variance/signature everything seems to have in the trek universe. Cells replace but the signature doesn't change. Its probably the explanation for temporal aphasia and temporal psychosis mentioned by the 29th century time cops in 'Relativity'

    Yor comes from an alternate universe created by the temporal incursion of a Romulan mining vessel.

    "caused by a mining vessel."

    The Narada is referred to by Nero in ST 09 that where he is from it is a "simple mining vessel."

    I wonder if Yar and Yor were ever confused with each other. ;)

    It doesnt say that it was the exact gear he jumped through time in. Maybe that is just his starfleet record photo

    It's hilarious that they showed it with the GEN badge first, and just a few hours later, they changed it to the TNG badge XD

    Testing us to see how observant we are? Like the legend of Jeans Guy from The Mandalorian.

    I suspect that was a costume error that they spotted a little late -- like the lack of rank stripes on the original Discoprise uniforms at the start of season two. The costume designers and wardrobe team are just that: costume and wardrobe. They're not necessarily Starfleet uniform geeks.

    On which note...
    We don't yet know for sure if that's his own original Kelvin-universe uniform that he travelled in, a uniform he picked up along the way or a uniform he acquired after arriving in the Prime universe. So the significance of the following minutiae is also open to debate:
    1. Combadge change -- corrected error or actually a feature within the episode?
    2. If he's a Lieutenant Commander, no rank pips or other apparent insignia? (see first paragraph...!)
    3. No division-colour piping around the inverted-V split over the boots.

    If they were trying to suggest he appeared in the PRIME timeline and took a TNG-era disguise then there are issues.

    If they're suggesting that's what the Kelvin-universe guys were wearing in 2379 then, sure, keep the basic style but why not make it just subtly more different to the standard Prime early-TNG uniform...?

    We'll know more in a week.

    I mean, that's my method. It's done wonders for my blood pressure.

    Based on that clip, The Emperor is totally using the Guardian of Forever to go back to the Mirror Universe to cure herself.

    I predict however the whole thing is a ruse set up by Section 31.

    So, its like Stargate.. Got it.. :techman:

    and if Prime Georgeou still existed, it would go faster like Mirror Sam did..

    So far, good season, but they can do better..
