    Best news I've seen in a while!

    And I think this is the first time there's been a 29-year production gap between Part II and Part III of an episode. Across time, space, and series too; no less. ;)

    Vulcan in the Prime Timeline was never destroyed. Unless it was destroyed some time between 2399 and 3187.

    I’m sure in Dystopia Trek, lots of planets have been destroyed.

    Gonna do some crazy early predictions:

    Episode 1: “That Hope Is You”
    They find the remnants of the Federation, chat with the Prez and begin their quest to Put Things Right™

    Episode 2: Forget Me Not
    The crew get The Big Sad when they realise their loved ones are long dead

    Episode 3: Scavengers
    They're attacked by space pirates in the crapsack future

    Episode 4: Unification III
    Michael learns what her big brother ended up doing with his life.

    Episode 5: Terra Firma, Part 1
    They find Earth, moved through space by magical advanced technology.

    Episode 6: Terra Firma, Part 2
    On Earth, things have also gone to shit.

    Episode 7: The Sanctuary
    Probably future-Terralysium.

    People were asking if that was our Moon in the Discovery teaser during Picard. You have your answer now.

    We all know the Earth's Moon was blasted off into space in 1999.

    Specifically, they receive a time capsule with messages from their loved ones.

    It's true. Vulcan was destroyed in the Kelvin Timeline and Romulus was destroyed in the Prime Timeline.

    Nah...we all know it hatched in 2049, giving birth to a giant space bat, which then proceeded to lay another in its place.:whistle:

    I imagine there's a couple of things that can't be done due to the coronavirus holding this season up. The score would be probably the hardest thing to do, unless Jeff Russo wants to do everything on synth.

    Was Romulus destroyed in both timelines, or did Nero have some way to avoid that?

    I would 100% give my left nut for a synthwave style soundtrack of stuff like this for season 3:




    To bring it back to the episode titles, this news made my day. I don't think I've ever been as excited for a new season of trek to drop. 'Unification III' is the episode i'm most interested in. My guess is it will be season 3's answer to 'If Memory Serves' and further the story of Romulan/Vulcan Unification. Perhaps Spock is considered a myth or a legend in the 32nd century and Burnham has to help finish what her brother started all those centuries ago. Also interesting to note it's written by Kristen Beyer, I wonder if she came up with the idea after prepping for Picard with a TNG rewatch

    I have no idea, since we've never seen the 24th Century in the Kelvin Timeline.

    But it's not relevant to DSC.

    After “Children of Mars,” I’ve learned not to get my hopes up with interpreting the meaning of an episode title.

    Here are mine:

    “That Hope is You”
    Michael-only for almost the entire episode, if not the entire episode. She meets Book, who brings her to Mr. “That hope is you” from the teaser trailer. Book is skeptical, but comes around and joins the mission to save the Federation.

    “Forget Me Not”
    Discovery’s crew, helmed by Saru, locates Michael and has information of their own to share. The ship sets a course for Trill and Michael communes with an ancient Dax to learn more about what has happened and how to stop it.

    “Scavengers”
    The crew bumps into a group of — you guessed it — scavengers during their mission to wherever Dax has sent them. These are the people we’ve seen in the teaser, including a Cardassian and a member of Morn’s race. They’re also those Andorians. Our heroes convince the scavengers to stand down, gaining new allies in the process. Perhaps there’s also an initial run-in with the Big Bads.

    “Unification III”
    Michael learns Spock’s legacy when the crew encounters a Vulcan/Romulan alliance forged through the legends of her brother’s efforts. The crew celebrates further allies, but dissidents within the alliance nearly shatter their hopes.

    “Terra Firma, Part 1”
    One way or another, Discovery reaches Earth. Given the writing credits here, I’m thinking there’s significant material for Georgiou, and this two-parter will sneakily serve as a backdoor pilot for the Section 31 series. Regardless, Earth is in a predictably bad place, and the crew launches a desperate mission to save it from the Big Bads.

    “Terra Firma, Part 2”
    A surprisingly expensive-looking episode for the mid-season, with ship-to-ship and ground team action outclassed only by “Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2.” The mission to liberate Earth runs into inevitable complications and the Discovery is narrowly successful. Georgiou decides to stay behind and use her talents to do spy stuff for Burnham.

    “The Sanctuary”
    I’m with you, Daniel. Future Terralysium just feels right somehow. Obviously, it will include forward momentum for the season’s arc while tying into the crew’s prior visit.
