I'd be happier if Burnham and the whole Discovery crew bit the dust and Vance + section 31 guy ran the show. Knowing Michelle Paradise the Disco writer crew, the Burnham will be president of the Federation pretty soon

Then they can start over with a new crew set in the future.

I'd like to see that.

Oh its coming, look at the character development of Burnham, her whole story is built around screwing over her superior officers.


Stages a coup on George. George ends up being the main course at a Klingon Buffet.


Screws over Saru on multiple occasions, makes him look like the worst dumba$$ ever. Even when she was demoted, argued and over ruled his commands.


So yeah, she's totally going to stage a coup on the Federation.

And the show will justify her actions and make her a hero for making the "tough choice" to stage the coup.

The Admiral is likely the acting Federation President, but didn't want to show that card, Michael uses this as her way of being morally justified.

Maybe that's why they removed Disco from the production schedule. They're renaming it Star Trek:Burnham.

Seriously shes gotta be the most unlikable character out there, narcissistic behaviour, saviour complex, constantly throws her friends under the bus. Really no redeeming personal qualities but she somehow always saves the day because the universe aligns to fix her mistakes every time while she fails up the chain of command. Like I get it when characters are flawed, realize their errors, and get redeemed through struggle.... but she's had three seasons and she's still the same.

It was weird how Doug Jones was treated. Basically abandoned. Is it possible he didn't want to go through all the makeup anymore? They came up with a really weird plot point in the holo where he appeared as a human for the last few episodes. it would all make a bit more sense if he was done with the costume.


Maybe Brunham overthrows the Admiral, then installs Saru as the new Admiral, so he only makes guest appearances.

This- they made him human so he could better relate to and be less dramatic to... someone from his actual race?

Doug Jones has made a career of being one of the really good actors under makeup. I think it feels like more of, we need to sum up his story so he's no longer Captain so we can shoe horn Michael into the captains chair. I expect he's done, we might get an episode with him as a guest star, but it feels like he's done.

Lets be honest though, they completely wrecked him as a Captain or even a respected character in this show. Its too bad because he's an exceptional actor and did a great job in that last episode. Meanwhile Green is and continues to be just an terrible actress.

Not as weird as Gray becoming real because the holodeck somehow recognizes him as a person??? "Omg... you are a real boy now!"

Well I like how Hugh was written and fleshed out a bit more, he was likeable, it was the one good surprise for me this season.

His writing this season was decent. I also liked Paul trying to put Hugh's life ahead of the greater good (i.e. anti-Starfleet morals but very human).

Unless they're planting fake information to throw people off, Saru will be back for season 4.

I also like how they took Adira under their wing it was nice a positive. Now while Star Trek has always been progressive I have a question about Adira, does she want to be called 'them' because of her sexuality/identity or because she is literally a gestalt entity?

Also what species was she turned into in the holo?

For the season 4 they are supposedly having funding problems now that Disco has shown itself to be horribly disappointing for Netflix and the contract is up. It's part of the reason why they ended the season on the Star Trek quote.
~1:00 mark. Apparently a dedicated video on this a bit later since these are recent rumors.

As for Picard production problems, these are around Covid-19 and being unable to get Patrick Stewart insured for filming at his age with the current stage of the pandemic + number of case in California (like a full fifth of LA). They may have started production, but filming cannot start until Stewart has his insurance. It's at the ~2:00 mark from midnight's edge livestream.
