    No the writers most definitely have a season 3 outline already.

    Cats can open fridges, doors, and turn on faucets, damnit!

    Oh wait, was that oversharing my troubles with pets over the years?

    So the Picard we get might be the guy who laughed when he looked down and saw a pole stuck through his chest? Oh, wait, no, that is in character, my bad.

    He seemed pretty energetic a couple years ago on Blunk Talk.

    What we know:
    1. Word of God (Kurtzman) is Control is totally gone, and Discovery will face an "even greater threat" in the future.
    2. Anson Mount won't appear in the season. Which makes sense, since Pike stayed behind, but his not being involved seems to imply there's not going to be a 23rd century portion of the show they flip back and forth between.
    3. Similarly, Ash, Number One, and Spock are not on the show.
    4. Micheal Burnham will still be the main.
    5. We're almost certainly going to go into at least the first episode with Saru, Stamets, Tilly, Culber, Reno, and the bridge furniture (Detmer, Owo, etc).
    6. MU Georgiou will appear in both the upcoming season and her own spinoff Section 31 show, which means there are only a finite possible number of permutations.

    I personally don't think we will get a Pike "series" but (IMHO) more likely a limited series. A 10-episode limited series might be more palatable to busy actors who don't want to commit their time to a multi-season series.

    So, if they go 930 years into the future, to match up with Dr. Burnham's 950 year trip starting 20 years earlier, they'll end up at the same point in time before Dr. Burnham came back in Project Daedalus & Red Angel.

    She certainly didn't act like she'd seen Michael at any point since she was a child.

    Kinda the opposite. She was more or less stalking Michael throughout her life, but in a very loving & motherly way.

    I see where you're going with the line of thought. Maybe we'll get ANOTHER whole season of them going back in time AGAIN as the Burnham Burning Red Angels Time-Travelling Duo to ensure the integrity of the changes they already made. :lol:

    Might get there and things are completely different thanks to the end of Control in the 23rd century.

    OK, maybe better if I said "didn't act like she'd met or spoken to Michael". You're right about the motherly stalking :guffaw:

    We may also get the Picard that enjoys tear assing around redneck planets on dune buggies while drinking Monster :D

    Picards new drink of choice will be a red bull with vodka and snort of speed.

    Rememeber those 2 Star Trek movies they were making, the first of which was weeks from production until Paramount pulled the plug?

    Confirmation in Hollywood means little these days. Believe it on day one of filming.

    Nothing yet. I suspect they learned a thing or two from that Instagram Klingon lunchtime photo 3 years ago.

    What do we know? We know Discovery disappeared into what most likely but not necessarily was a time portal. We know Spock and company received a signal that he was expecting/hoping for from Burnham, but we do not know that she was the one who sent it or if it came from the time frame that was anticipated.

    The thing with "confirmations" is that they are nothing. Don't even trust things that are from day one of filming, or the last day of filming. Producers do their job in hyping their projects, which can mean getting any word at all to stir in the news, doesn't have to be true, although it is often true or "true-ish" at the time they say it, but that doesn't mean it is true by the time it gets through production and to our eyeballs and ears. And of course, they can outright lie because there is no penalty for doing so.

    It was intentional that they didn't show Discovery after it disappeared. They're leaving the options open for the writers to do whatever next season. They COULD go where they expected, but also not. They could have a smooth trip, or it could be an Alien 3 scenario where many are dead immediately (not likely with casting contracts and such, even GOT isn't as quick to kill off cast as they once were, but it could happen and we'd likely be none the wiser until it aired).

    Point is, regarding the future of DSC, we know nothing really. Except it will star Burnham. They could decide that they don't like leaving the Pike time behind and head back there immediately with Tech/Crystal/Mushroom/Vapor/Trelane if they think that will work better for them. They aren't tied to anything, regardless of any hype.

    We know they WANT to make a S31 show, but a lot can happen before that, so it ain't real until they make it. We know the Picard show will exist and we know that Stewart likes the direction they're going, which is, of course, the same Stewart who was pro-dunebuggy - and made it through S1 TNG without looking foolish, so that could mean anything.

    We know what modern Trek looks like, in both its strengths and weaknesses. Even if the Picard show is very different from DSC, even if it is designed to look entirely different, it's still a modern "prestige" show, and it will look a lot like DSC.

    We know that there are folks who will love or hate it regardless of the quality.

    We know that people who genuinely discuss the qualities (good and bad) will be insulted for not loving or hating these new Treks enough.

    And we know that we will all (notwithstanding life changes) be here to talk, praise, complain, discuss, and share a barrel of bloodwine (or raktajino if that's how you roll).
