    What if the new Locutus was a young clone grown at birth to have Borg Implants based on Picards DNA.

    That could be a neat plot twist.

    If the Romulans can grow a clone of Picard in ST:Nemesis, what's to stop them from having a new Locutus based on Borg tech and clones?

    Is a new Locutus needed? The original one only had one specific purpose

    Cool thanks, I was wondering what that said but it was too blurry to read on my screen...I knew it had to be a Quark quote or one of the Rules of Acquisition.

    So two Star Trek main cast characters just committed cold-blooded murder in the same episode. I'm all for showing a more realistic side to the future time.

    But fuck this shit.

    When does Disco start again?

    To be fair, it's highly likely that Jurati is being mind-controlled.

    It clearly exists in some form in some places, maybe not on Earth but I clearly remember Harry Kim having Quark trying to sell him some tray of Gemstones in Voy Episode 1 & he asks if he can pay cash or credit. So just because you don't need it on Earth doesn't mean you aint going to need it off planet.

    look, some kind of currency exists, you just don't spend it on baseball cards if your best friend is a Ferengi with a hidden stash of latinum anyway

    I think so yes, I am not convinced that Oh showed her what happened all those millennia ago as its supposed to be a big secret and downloading the information via mindmeld means it wouldn't be a secret for long.

    Mind you she could be a misdirect as well, Oh may not be Zhat Vash after all she could be S31.

    We know from an earlier episode that she has secrets but we don't actually know what they are yet, plus she wanted Dahj taken alive not killed, compare that to Rizzo who just wants to kill them all immediately, we may yet find out what happened to make Rizzo hate them so much, her brother doesn't seem to have the same zeal she has.

    Were they on the Romulan ship that was attacked all those years ago.

    But didn't Star Trek teach us, that much like gazpacho soup, revenge is a dish best served cold?
