    It is the sisko.

    The sisko is not linear.

    Bigger question for me is who is the bad guy?

    My guess that it's a supercomputer that section 31 made and in the future it gets out of control and just wants to nuke everyone.

    The way the shuttlecraft probe was upgraded was strange to me. Like why did't the enemy just use their own probe rather than sending an upgraded one back? Why did it want to scan the database of computers in the past (it should know everything)? Why did it try to kill a human but overtake an android? Was a lot like V'Ger to me. :shifty:

    I'll put it another way then: Leland is the Bad Guy and Control is the Final Boss.

    Georgiou is the rouge third party Anti-Hero who's "helping" Burnham even though she has her own motives in mind. i.e. Trying to make Leland look bad. Basically, she's the Vegeta of Discovery.

    THE VEGETA OF DISCOVERY.

    This is one of the funniest things I've read around here.

    A.I....okay, here's a completely off-the-wall idea. The RA is a Klingon android.

    Why? Because John Schuck not only played the Klingon ambassador, but also an android....in this little short-lived gem:



    :lol:

    the most logical thought is ...it is an alternate reality version of Michael Burnham

    Any female that gets introduced in the next episode will be everyone's guess-of-the-week, until another female gets introduced, and so on and so on.

    Given how much mileage they've gotten from keeping it a mystery, I doubt they'll do a reveal just yet.

    IF the red angel is Michael then something to me is already wonky. It seems that she should have been killed by that beast on Vulcan as a child and only didn't because the red angel told Spock where she was. If she was killed as a child then how did she grow up to become the red angel? Then again there are lots of time travel paradox's so Im not sure I want to think about it too much.

    I fail to see the logic in this theory.

    I still like the idea of it being a true temporal war - someone from the distant *past* making a trek through thousands of years of history, finding obliteration in the distant future, and making a difference when it makes the most impact. We know of ancient civilizations with advanced tech - and I know that some of those theories have been hashed out already, but I still like the idea, partly because it tackles temporal ethics in a different way: if it's not your past and it's not your present, and it's not really YOUR future, why not change it a bunch for the greater good? Being based in the distant past is a different twist on it.

    With the RA supposedly being human, we know that humans in the past came across advanced tech several times, including temporal tech. If it's Mudd, though, he'll never let the galaxy live it down.

    Isn't it kind of ridiculous that the Red Angel is human?

    I mean, yes, Spock said the mind felt human.

    On the other hand(s):
    1) Mind melding with it caused Spock to go insane (atypical for a human).

    2) It has abilities far beyond human (time travel, relocation across time & space, etc).

    Perhaps it is something that is partially human, or something that started as human, but now is not...

    It's the opposite of the grandfather paradox. Burnham has to go back in time to stop a paradox. She's predestined to do so. Burnham actually never died at all, she just got the memory from Spock, then traveled back in time and shared it with young Spock.

    I just had a hurlific thought:

    Considering TOS and Apollo, etc....

    Considering some of the early ideas for TMP....

    Considering Mutara and Genesis....

    Considering Terralysium and New Eden....

    They could make it that the Red Angel is a.....being claiming to be biblical Eve.

    :ack:

    The Red Angel is Khaless, in a twist in female form to overthrow Klingon patriarchy and help L'Rell uniting the Empire

    Considering the discussion about T'Pol and her butt crack....it's more like Braless. :shrug:
