Well in the land of fan fiction anything is possible. Maybe he did in some untold stories haha.
In the Land of fan fiction, several contradicting realities coexist.
Maybe the Temporal Cold War was actually just an attempt to reconcile all these mutually exclusive fan fiction realities and headcanons. It could even have ended with a Temporal Synod where they created the definitive Temporal Canon.
I think if any series can reconcile all contradicting realities, it's Discovery. For one thing, it's the first time that a TOS spinoff offers arcs that span a whole season!! Enough with the old concept of the reset at the end of each episode!! Plus it's the first time for example that one of the good guys (Lorca) turns out much later in the series to be a bad guy and a very bad one. It would be like finding out that Geordi was evil incarnate. Before Disco they wouldn't have dared to do that!
I strongly suspect if Discovery even attempted to reconcile everything, we'd end up with something like straight out of The Elder Scrolls, where they reconciled the mutually exclusive endings of Daggerfall with outright stating they all happened at the same time and it literally broke the space-time continuum until the Dragon of Time could figure out how to reboot the universe.
Seriously, if I just thought about all the headcanons and fanfics centered on Tilly, if Discovery reconciled them, she'd be simultaneously dating Burnham and Pike, while mourning Mirror Lorca, Airiam and Cornwell... talk about a love dodecahedron .
You took the words out of my mouth!
At least Control was consistent and didn't change its mind half way. Got to have goals I guess even if you are an emergent AI
I had a thought today. Assuming that there isn't a Pike series coming, and considering the way the finale ended, was there another subtle connection to TOS, where the second season also ended with a "backdoor pilot" to a show they didn't produce?
[Edit: If this has already been noticed, overlook me. I haven't checked this thread n a few days.]
you are right i don't - what about
why has that dude a nice and shiny black badge and i don't?
Maybe the shiny black badge gets you into the locked secret rooms on the ship where parties are held
But an orgy is like a party... Only without drinks, food or music, well sometimes.
They can only be found in 1 out of every 1000 Starfleet Standard Issue cereal boxes. They double as a decoder ring.
If you know what you're doing you can even involve polka music.
Now I know why Section 31 had to go underground. People got word of the perks and everyone wanted to join.
Yep Polka leads to sex. Ask Susan Ivanova
she would know that why? she's russian
She knows how to party
*stumbles out of a transport tube with tangled hair, covered in garlands, using a cane to stand up while shoving away a Drazi drunkenly passed out on her shoulder*
Sheridan: "What the...?"
Ivanova: "Don't. Even. Ask." *limps away*
Talk about playing the squeezebox.
Noooooooooooo OK here sex.
