    As Discovery is a bit strapped for resources in the future, they are trading, foraging and hunting for food to ease the strain on the replicators. So right now, they're in a bog on this damp, faraway planet, where Georgiou is roasting some of these weird salamander things she found.
    Tilly (gleefully, with her mouth full): "You should try some Michael, it's really delicious."
    Burnham: "Do we even know what this is?"
    Georgiou: "Does it really matter? It's meat."
    Burnham (whips out a tricorder): "Just to make sure." *presses a few buttons, tricorder beeps and chirps* "That's curious. I'm not sure how this is possible, but according to the tricorder, those salamanders are a 99.79% match for Human DNA."
    *beat*
    Tilly's eyes go wide and the meat falls out of her mouth before she starts gagging. Georgiou blinks a few times, then shrugs and keeps eating.

    Is that the story with the Enterprise Infinity and most of the crew was holograms of the TOS and TNG crews?

    Then she says " Tastes like Kelpian."

    Saru (harrumphs): "I wonder how you know that, Captain Georgiou."
    Georgiou (with a smug grin): "You really should try to relax, Captain Saru. All this tension and chronic stress is known to make Kelpien taste bitter."

    And that's how Georgiou was unceremoniously stuffed into the Red Angel suit and sent flying back into the 23rd century.

    I get that. But Trek can't seem to resist reuniting people through whatever the script calls for. Everything we had heard about PIC was that virtually no one had been approached about making an appearance from the old crews, and now we hear it's going to be cameos left and right. So we'll see.

    "Benedict Cumberbatch isn't Khan" is the benchmark of bullshit from TPTB. And Kurtzman was involved with that one.

    I'm hoping the cameos, like the one they announced with Troi and Riker, are because of the plot an not just fan service.

    Well, there's always this guy....

    He'd done a lot of time hopping before he showed up in the Enterprise-D.

    No that was another (totally bonkers) one.

    That's a really cool idea though. With 32nd century technology they could do a Babylon 5 "Decontruction of Falling Stars" and resurrect anyone as a holographic replica. Chris Pine wants a cameo? HoloKirk! They want Michael to talk to Amanda again? Reg Barclay can show up for some random reason?

    The possibilities are endless. They just have to convince the audience that these holographic replicas are worth emotionally investing in, which isn't easy (see: "These Are The Voyages")

    I wept like a baby at the end of Spielberg's "A.I." film, with that resurrection scene.

    I was always under the impression that his trip to the Enterprise-D was his first stop.

    No, I mean they should've had Rasumussen on ENT before he went into the future, since the 22nd Century is when he's from. Matt Frewer might've looked a little older by the early-2000s, but throw on some hair dye and he would've been good to go.

    I suppose he could've visited the distant future and decided to backtrack because: A) it was a dystopian future with a lack of technology or B) the technology was so hopelessly advanced that there was no way he'd be able to reproduce it, like showing a microchip to a caveman and expecting him to make one and use it.

    That would have been a nice connection to TNG. Bonus if it also involved Daniels somehow.

    (It'll never happen, but it would be cool if Burnham met) Benny Russell!
