    I always imagined Archer asking the Vulcans to intercept those poor bastards and give them a warp coil after Enterprise defeated the Xindi. Seems wrong to just leave them hanging, but then again, Archer was pretty pissed at the universe by then.

    Ion storms don't exist, so they can pretty much make them look however they want. And when they interact with a thick atmosphere they might look different from what they're like in deep space.

    The issue with the daughter is an illness, not injury from an accident. The suspension in the transporter was done intentionally, to avoid allowing the disease to progress.

    The accident was the medical transporter suspension causing the light virus to be released onto the ship.

    No, he put her there to halt the progression of the disease.

    Then they exist, are of a specific appearance and never change depending on circumstances.

    I know someone mentioned it a couple of weeks ago but Romjin sure looks older than on DSC S2. Did she get some job done or something and it didn't work well? She looked just fine 2 years ago.

    I likened this to the fact that sunlight helps the body produce Vitamin D. If the virus makes people 'crave light', I figured the root cause might be a Vit-D deficiency, so that all seemed to make a bit of sense to me. Side note: when I had Covid, one thing I did was make sure I was saturated with Vit-D, and it was never much more than a case of the sniffles for me, thankfully. I did see some charts that showed your likelihood to need hospitalization was inversely proportional to your D-levels. That said, it's a strange bug that affects people differently.

    That choice of words just made me cringe. I wished he would have used a different term, because it pulled me right out of the 23rd Century and straight back into this one. Apropos of the times, I guess.

    It looks to me like she might have dropped a bit of weight. She was very baby-faced in DSC, I thought.

    Ah, maybe.

    But I like baby faces! :(

    She has soft features, which is why she looks so much better as a blonde, but I still think she's been looking mighty fine on this show!

    Not really. There isn’t such a thing as a warp 4 ship in the prime universe. After the warp 2 test, they went on to design the warp 5 engine. In the novelVerse, there were two competing designs. One by Henry Arch for the NX Class and the other for the Daedalus.

    Before the Narada arrives in 2233 to create the offshoot timeline it IS the Prime Universe. The Franklin existed in 2164 in both timelines. I don't for a minute believe the entire Kelvin Timeline is a different continuity going both forwards in time from 2233 as well as backwards into the past. I love Simon Pegg but his theory that the Narada altered time going in both directions and the past hinted at in Beyond is just a glorified, bad fan theory and Paramount never went along with it in official publicity or canon.

    It has to be. They didn't use concrete in their ships in the Prime universe. :)
    Also how can Kirk be born in Riverside Iowa if she was in labour on that ship?

    I'm going to have to ask you for a citation for a lack of intervening designs or developments between warp 2 and 5, sir.

    The little TOS noises are great. As I mentioned last week I like the "accelerating ship" sound they used.

    I doubt M'Benga would be the first person to think of Transporter Stasis after the invention of the Transporter.
    I'm pretty sure somebody early on thought of it and only fairly recently with the advent of the Warp Core, did it become practical to run for a long time. But Hardware Reliability over the years is a difficult thing to measure over the span of decades given Scotty's 50% success rate.

    I've never seen it before either in any medium that I've viewed so far.

    I'd prefer that they go with Metric Day & Metric Time for a (±Star Year / Star Date Unit ¦ Star Time Unit ) Star Date Notation.
    1 ISO Star Year = 1 Average Gregorian Year = 365.2425 Days = 8765.82 Earth Hours
    1 ISO Star Year = 1000 Star Days = 8765.82 Earth Hours
    1 Star Day Unit = 1000 STU (Star Time Units)
    1 Star Day = 8.76582 Earth Hrs = 525.9492 Earth Mins = 31556.952 Earth Secs = 8 Hrs, 45 Mins, 56.952 Secs
    1 STU (Star Time Units) = 31.556952 Earth Seconds

    The Backstory behind this was when the Star Date was born and based off the Average Gregorian Year. All the founding members in the ISO (InterStellar Standards Organization) within the newly minted UFP, which is a supersceding organization to ISO (International Standards Organization) on Earth, wanted to base the Star Year on the Average Gregorian Year on the Earth Calender. The rest of the founding members were keen to let it happen given that Humanity was the Glue that bonded all the other members together thanks to the actions of Jonathon Archer in numerous previous escapades.

    But the Vulcans wouldn't let Humans have their way of arbitrarily defining everything, since the Vulcans found the Metric System to be so logical and took a keen liking to the simplicity of the system, they required that Metric Star Days and Metric Star Time be used if we're going to use the Metric System as a ISO standard with the Average Gregorian Year as the foundation for the Star Year. Many of the humans weren't that keen on Metric Star Day & Metric Star Time; but eventually they gave way to Vulcan Logic and internal consistency. Ergo the simpler and more consistent Star Day & Star Time sub-units for Star Date.

    I like your solution, I'll adopt that as part of my Head Cannon. And Archer asking the Vulcans for a favor after saving Earth makes alot of sense. I doubt they would want to see Archer's face and it would a "Shoot on Sight" incident.
    The apologies would have to come later formally after all the crisis were solved.

    I think Rebecca Romijn looks great. You got to remember that she's 49 y/o now and a mother of twin daughters as well.
    She's not the 20 something Super Model that she used to be. She's aged gracefully like "Fine Wine" and looks spectacular IMO. Jerry O'Connell is a Lucky man to be married to her.
