    I wonder if she'd have a vision of Sarek visiting her, like how she had her talks with him in season one....I'm aware the actor has passed away...

    James Frain is still alive and could pop up at any time.

    Dang it. I was thinking of the Kelvinverse one...


    Never mind. Carry on.

    IDK if we'll ever see Sarek on SNW, so I'd definitely go for this. I really liked Frain's take on Sarek.

    If SNW keeps on for a few more seasons, I'd be surprised if they didn't

    With some really contrived reason for Spock to not be there.

    Amanda only said they hadn't spoken as father & son in 18 years, as of Journey To Babel.

    Sure, still a workaround is needed, but doable.

    Their interactions carried nothing of their personal relationship into the discussion. They were one scholar to another, ambassador to Starfleet officer, elder to junior, but not simply father and son.

    I like Frain. Also, he has the best chin in Star Trek.

    That's not even a work around, the fact that Amanda worded her comment as she did means that, at some point, Spock and Sarek did interact professionally.

    A lot of fans forget the wording, so it may feel like a workaround to them.

    It's funny she worded it that way, almost like they knew they might need a loophole all these years later ;)

    I wish they didn’t make the Breen speak standard. It just takes away the allure from them.
    I wouldn’t even have subtitles.

    they try to make it interesting, but it's just odd

    Moll understands Breen, doesn't she? If she can understand the dialogue, so should we.

    I wonder if she could speak Breen?

    They can have her understand it. Just keep it a mystery for the audience. Like what DS9 did.

    I suppose. I'm OK with using Moll as a POV character, though.
