Book gets stripped*
testing a experimental dilithium-less warp drive, Burnham and Book turn into salamanders and make babies.
Him and his bro Kyheem (Ache Hernandez) get spun-off on their own show.
They paint a big rebel flag on his ship, and they try and smuggle dilithium across the county line before Boss Osyraa catches up to them. ...Yeeehaw!
Burnham finds a new love and tosses Book to the fire.
11 people got it right...
Pocket Books needs to make a Discovery novel about Cleveland Booker, called Book.
You know they have to do it. I want to read a book about Book!
You see this cat Book is a bad mother (Shut your mouth)
But I'm talkin' about Book(Then we can dig it)
He's a complicated man but no one understands him but his woman
Not voting, because who can be sure, but considering the overall (high) emotional content of the show thusfar, I'd have to say, sadly, that someone like Michael Burnham isn't allowed to be happy for long; that's just the price of being a 'hero', really. So something unfortunate will happen to/concerning Book, just no idea what it could be. He could die, wither senselessly, or committing some out-of-character-for-who-he-used-to-be heroic act. He could get irretreivably lost somewhere. He could end up parting ways with Michael ("It's not you, Michael, it's me, I've changed, I love you, but I can't be with you anymore") either over some unreconcilable difference between them, or simply because some other love interest (either someone entirely new, or someone out of his past he thought he'd never see again); for bonus Nighttime Soap Opera points: he ends up hooking up with someone else on Discoverys' crew (yes, I'm being a little sarcastic in that one, but only slightly saracastic; you have to admit it would make you roll your eyes but it also wouldn't be entirely out of character for the show ). Or, maybe, he does join Starfleet, and gets sent far, far away -- and maybe gets tragically killed in some version of the above Book-dies-tragically scenarios.
Let's face it, folks; the field is wide open on this one. I think the writers and producers have demonstrated by now that they're capable of just about anything.
Last but not least, I'd like to say that I like the character of (Cleveland) Book(er), and I'd be sorry to see him go. He adds a roguish random element to the show that I don't think has ever existed in anything calling itself Star Trek before.
I also like Grudge, his Maine Coon 'queen'. Doesn't even have to do anything other than be, and it's very cool. To me, anyway.
..oh, one last thing: I make a prediction: If Book leaves, by some mechanism of writing or other, Michael ends up inheriting Grudge.
Search your feelings, Trekkies, you know I'm right.
..oh, my, you are SO fired.
Gotta go deeper..
Some day people will realize that happily ever after is not as canon as Disney would like people to believe.
I prefer it go like this:
'Happily ever after', 'Your happy ending', and 'your one True Love is out there' are dangerous perversions of the human concept of 'hope'.
I'm sure I'll get lots and lots of heat from some people for saying that, too.
I'll tell you this much: it ain't easy being both cynical and hopeful all at the same time, either, and I am. But I try to be a realist.
Speaking of hope, I hope some people found my original post on this subject to be entertaining, or at least amusing. As a long-time friend of mine says, "If you can't be impressive, at least be funny".
Someone in the main cast is going to this season.
The Redshirts are tired of being sucked into space as the starships are confidently made for them to the in while the bridge crew usually makes it out alive.
Hope in of itself is dangerous. I think part of the potential danger of happily ever after is the idea that it just happens. That optimism and positivity requires effort, and perseverance in the face of hardship, not just hope that it will all get better.
I think they'll turn a page with Book...
