    Which is weird, because that's where we were twenty years ago. Despite what this ep claims, you couldn't detect a Changeling by scanning them. My headcanon is that's something Starfleet was able to figure out post-war. (...Maybe by scanning their Changeling prisoner?)

    The new Changelings might be "evolved" but they don't seem any more sneaky or dangerous than before. In fact, they often seem a little incompetent. Interested to see where it's going, hopefully it all makes sense in the end. :)

    They had access to Odo for years, why could they not have figured out how to scan for Changelings from him?

    They will have looked at when the most eyes will be on P+ in UK and timed the release to match that

    Frustrating a hell for people like us who are in the 5% or more hardcore fans but the priority is getting as many eyes on it as possible and it must be that Friday releases get better reach over here

    Good episode. Nice to have gotten it earlier than usual.

    Current thoughts about Jack are, perhaps he isn't really Bev and JL's son, but a "cuckoo species" and doesn't yet know. To what end, I don't actually know.

    Second idea, the issues are just part of genetic problem of Picard's relating to mental health, similar to JL's mother in S2. Some of the sequences remind me Picard's flashbacks in that... look up.

    Even Starfleet can't do things overnight. It may have taken years to get that breakthrough to detect Changelings, which in turn forced them to adapt.

    Works for me.

    ADMIRAL PICARD: Buh-Joor. As in, there are four lights.

    COMMANDER RO: Sheesh! No wonder the Emissary couldn't stand you. Okay. We're cool.

    Had no idea. I watched it 6 hours ago in Japan. Didn’t know you had to wait.

    I almost thought they were implying that Janeway is now the CNC. But I suppose it might have just because she would be a "friendly".

    I'm wondering if they have intentionally "de-evolved" some members of their species.

    Lying bullshit.

    Changelings could easily beat tricordor and transporter scans in the old days.

    Phaser sweeps and blood testing was the only way to track them.

    Odo was a shitty child Changeling, who didn't know how to use his powers well.

    The only reason the changelings would attack is if Kira died.

    Odo's love for her, which he shared with all of them, in the link, was the only thing keeping the AQ peaceful.

    That's why Fridays have traditionally been crazier than Thursdays activity-wise. :p

    Maybe this "group" is part of the hundred, or an earlier group of babies that were sent out to test the galaxy?

    Good point. I just selfishly want more DS9 representation. :-)

    No idea of the story behind it, but it is the same variant that we saw Geordi wearing in some scenes of the trailer, and the promo shot of him with his daughter.

    If they give her a decaf coffee she happily accepts then SHE'S A CHANGELING!

    Maybe they heard my whining. It's the second time in the past two I've had spoiers on the front page of YT or every site.
