    He gets to eat, sleep and shit in that chair, it is like his own mobile home!

    A throwaway line in Picard Season 2 will talk about how the synths have just left Talos IV and the operations to transfer Vina and Captain Pike into synth bodies was a success.

    I just saw the casting announcement for some of the crew, and Yeoman Colt is missing. If Yeoman Colt isn't on the show I'm taking my toys and going home.

    I'm sure those characters will be referenced or show up in guest spots at some point. Maybe even in a flashback scene. No way they keep Colt as a spikey alien though.

    Come on, we all want to see Idris Elba and find out how Colt was forced to use Krall's tech on a hapless spiky alien to survive.

    From the look of things, I'd say the chair was just barely keeping Pike alive.
    It could be that the amount of Delta Radiation his body absorbed is continuing to degrade what's left of him.
    That may be why Spock was in such an all fired up hurry to get Pike back to Talos IV.
    Perhaps he only had a few more months to live and Spock wanted him to spend it with a lot more dignity rather than rotting away in that chair.

    The Talosians may even be able to cure Pike in some manner.
    Even though they lived underground, they obviously had a very advanced civilization.

    Episode 6: Lieutenant Commander José Tyler steps onto the bridge for a reunion with Captain Pike, Number One and Spock and introduces his cousin Ash, who works for "a special branch of Starfleet R&D." :p

    Would be funny if one of those characters announced gets killed off in the first episode

    "Ash is instrumental in developing new shipboard technologies. He's at the forefront of helping make these ships stronger and more powerful!"

    Pike(thinking): "Dammit. And he still owes me fifteen credits from that poker game on Emperor Georgiou's ship.

    ASSHOLE."

    How about all 3? Colt,Tyler and Boyce in a TMP style transporter accident in the opening scene. Then Pike is like. "Contact Starfleet. Inform them I need crew replacements. Preferably some with fan service qualifications."

    I mean the new characters they revealed in the video. They kill that Noonien Singh character before they even address that surname.
    People have been speculating online that she might be a descendant of his and have some abilities, which has lead to people saying she is going to be their Illara. She’ll be opening Pike’s pickle jars. :)

    And now you have discovered why Section 31 arranged that little accident with the baffle plate on that Class J training vessel, and why, despite significantly more advanced 23rd century technology in existence ten years previously, Captain Pike was confined to the beep-beep chair.

    Ash will go to great lengths to avoid paying a poker debt.

    That sounds like Section 31 to me. They'll put a man in a wheelchair just to avoid shelling out.
