    I think this is a perfectly legitimate question for Star Trek to explore and the fact that it gets dismissed as glorifying Space Hitler is the most frustrating aspect to me.

    Peck not answering that question about a spinoff really raised my Romulan eyebrow.

    Once I read it's stars people go to see movies for. I'm only watching DSC b/c it's the latest Trek, but a Mount/Pike Peck/Spock show I'd be enthused about. Romijn prob too big for a series?

    I doubt it. She just finished being in a series with less exposure and popularity than Trek.

    Number One was hardly in this season (even less than Vina), yet her return was hyped up while Vina's wasn't at all. There are only 4 episodes left in the season. Is she suddenly going to feature in all of them? The press coverage of Romijn's casting seems disproportional to her actual screentime so far. It only makes sense if she's going to feature in another show prominently.

    The same suspicions about Notaro's role.
    (And well, if they relocate to "Enterprise", could they please take Tyler away from S31?)

    ^At least Notaro has been in more than one episode and had some great, fun scenes in each episode she was in. Number One was in one episode, in which she...ate a hamburger.

    Pike, Spock and Number One (as cast on Discovery) would instantly become my favorite TV show.

    I'm now pretty much a billion percent sure the supposed Georgiou spin-off is really cover for a Pike/Enterprise series, which will also feature Tyler/L'Rell/Sarek as recurring characters.

    Well this is going to be pretty amusing to hear for the next few month, at least until Section 31 goes into production.

    Know what you mean can't recall much of discovery past pike and the enterprise, but not knocking poeple who enjot it too, as trek caters for all
