    If anything, they are supposed to be shown as polar opposites to the Zhat Vash, being that their whole raison d'etre is "absolute candor."

    That’s the Tal Shiar that they’re the opposite to.

    That why thribs wrote "splinter group of the female monks". That alien relict might have turned them completely around after some of those female monks have discovered it. I hope they don't connect both this way, but it wouldn't really surprise me after they connected Riker/Troi and Rios both to the Synths storyline so directly.

    Ask him if that was a Prothean beacon at the beginning. That would be funny. :)

    Maybe they don't count in Earth days on the Borg cube, but in Romulan days and Romulans days are shorter. Otherwise there really would be an inconsistency.

    Much as how 18 years really pass between "Space Seed(TOS)" and TWOK but only 15 pass on Ceti Alpha V. A Romulan year clearly isn't the same length as an Earth one much how a year on Ceti Alpha V lasts longer.

    True. Maybe next time she'll just tell him to fuck off. :rommie:

    Oh, I'm just kidding around. You know I love the little decapitator. And I expect him to have some pivotal role to play in the finale.

    This tangent is useless without music!


    One would almost think they were part of a society that was formed because its people didn't want to embrace logic...

    Or to go fuck himself.

    So its looking like the TKon then, could they actually be intending to introduce O as the big bad.

    If O is the big bad then its a certainty that Q will become involved.

    From google searching an entity like the Q. O wanted to set up shop in the galaxy, honked of the Q and got booted. The galactic barrier was made to keep the nasty bugger out. That's a quick summation and probably with lots of inaccuracy.

    An evil entity from another reality, he is the big bad of the Q Continuum novels.

    It just so happens that he can destroy stars as well.

    Right now the TKon Empire and O are the best fit from what we have been able to work out.

    O is seriously bad news.

    Thank you. And for the record, I tried Googling “Star Trek O.” Didn’t come up with much.

    Pretty much in a nutshell.

    Perhaps the Synths are the key to enabling him to return.

    Go take a look at the TKon Empire on Memory Alpha.

    We’ve already had this 0 discussion here. He’s a novel character so doesn’t actually exists in on screen canon. He’s also trapped in the barrier and only destroyed them out of anger. Nothing to do with this synth story.

    Not all of us have the time to read every post nor do we have the time or inclination to read every Star Trek novel. So forgive me for asking questions about something I don’t have as much knowledge as you do.

    True but there are some striking similarities to the abilities of the TKon and the arrangement of those 8 Stars, plus the destruction of Romulus home Star which O is perfectly capable of doing.

    Could be something completely different though.

    It never hurts to ask, I was not aware of much of it until I noted the similarities to the TKon Empire, then I found out about O.

    Its a pretty good fit for what we know so far but it is non canon.
