Well, I won't hold that against it.
Seems nicely accurate!
I'll save my panty-wetting for the episode...
Janken Pog confirmed he came over on a sleeper ship. Interesting.
According to Google episode 5 is called Terror Firma. I can’t find an official source to confirm it anywhere yet, but it does sound plausible with where last week’s cliffhanger left off.
Updated: The Paramount+ press team/promotion machine released photos from the episode confirming the Terror Firma title.
I’m excited to see the conclusion!
Updated again: And now Paramount+ has updated the log lines for the episode and includes writing/directing credits and an episode description.
Which could explain how he never heard of humans or the Federation. If he's from a sleeper ship, that ship was presumably part of the earliest Tellarite spacefaring days, pre-warp.
Then there's no credible way it could get to the Delta Quadrant. Even at Botany Bay speeds (i.e. fast enough to cover at least the majority of the 250-ly distance to Alpha Ceti within 270 years), it would take nearly 40,000 years to get to the part of Delta where this show seems to be set; at a more realistic sleeper ship speed, it would've taken closer to a million years. Okay, Bajorans are supposed to have been civilized tens of thousands of years ago, but Tellarites? Not to mention that it's hard to buy any kind of sleeper technology lasting a fraction that long without breaking down.
More likely we're talking a long-range warp ship at a speed slower than Voyager's, long enough to take generations to reach Delta.
Potentially, or an early warp capable but sleeper ship to establish a new colony. Possibly one that got taken way off course and they had to work with waking up nowhere near where they thought. Pretty sure that's how the Klingons got there, but I could be misremembering.
I'm waiting to see if holo-Janeway has Admiral Janeway's rules:
1. Keep your shirt tucked in.
2. Go down with the ship.
3. Never abandon a member of your crew.
Well, she established last week that she's incapable of leaving the ship, so #2 is a given. And her uniform's probably programmed to keep the shirt tucked in, if that's even an issue with its design.
Also, I wonder why it is that she's intangible when most Trek holograms are not.
CGI'ing Robert Picardo was too expensive?
I mean in-story. Metatextually, presumably Hologram Janeway is intangible so that the lead characters have to do all the work themselves and can only draw on her for advice, nothing more. But in-universe, it's inconsistent for a 24th-century (or later) hologram to be intangible by default, so I wonder what the in-story reason would be for that. Maybe the system suffered damage or deterioration and lost that capability? Although everything else about the Protostar seems to work perfectly.
She IS a TRAINING hologram.
I don't think we need to worry.
Holo-Janeway is fully caffeinated:
"Holographic caffeine!?! What is this $#&%!?!"
Oh, you know how these Lost in Space things work. A sleeper ship goes out, hits a weird space wedge, and ends up in the Delta Quadrant.
Prodigy tracking Disco?
Which negates the previously stated premise that the sleeper ship itself explains how they got there. And ignores the writers' obvious intention in making itt a sleeper ship in the first place.
