    Place your bets on what you hope to see:

    Predictions:

    * T'Lynn's transfer
    * The blowing up of the Obena or otherwise screwing the pooch
    * Freeman taking over the duties of First Contact
    * Boimler's clone showing up (long odds)
    * The Vaaruuvian Bomb
    * The Lower Deckers are promoted to Junior Lieutenants
    * ...But they don't have room on the ship for them all.

    And it becomes a good luck omen for Capt. Gomez.

    I do think it's kind of amazing that Mike McMahan loves TNG so much that he wanted to bring back a character who appeared twice in a role as an homage to the show from 30 years ago. That is the fan dedication I can only aspire to.

    A more coherent prediction:

    Captain Freeman is going to escort a vessel on First Contact and proceeds to make a bigger deal about it than necessary, offending everyone else. Especially as she confuses "escorting a first contact" with, "making a first contact." Everything goes to hell and she learns a valuable lesson about her chasing glory and meaningless prestige.

    given the spoiler in the video clip, I predict the Cerritos will be destroyed and all staff transferred to the new vessel.

    I think that's one of my favourite episodes of Star Trek in the entire franchise.

    In no particular order:

    * I did not see that ending coming!
    * No! Not Pakled Planet!
    * Cetacean ops!
    * Sonya Gomez had a much bigger role than I expected. What I was hoping for with Tom Paris.
    * Mariner and Jennifer is not a ship I expected to ship. But ship it I do.
    * Ransom going MINE MINE MINE like Gollum with the Cerritos is hilarious.
    * Lieutenant Tendi!
    * Of course she knows Jadzia Dax more than Spock.
    * THE DOLPHINS HAVE UNIFORMS!
    * Boimler needs a citation for this.
    * Rutherford is the Section 31 operative! Holy [bleep]!

    There is a actual rubber ducky room? :)
    I wonder if that was Section 31 that gave Rutherford the implant

    Beckett comparing herself to Kirk irked me alot. She is nothing like Kirk. After 2 seasons, she still is the most irksome character I have ever seen on any tv show. How she is still in starfleet amazes me.
