Besides which, if they’re planning for a worldwide release, the word “crusade” is going to upset people throughout the Islamic world just as much as “jihad” might upset Americans.  It still has bad connotations there.

My feeling is that both the Romulans and Sutra have misread the Admonition in different ways. Or, heck, Sutra may just be lying. She is a psycho after all.

No, the dying Picard is going to be mind-transferred into that “golem” body. Possibly without his knowledge — he’s injured — or against his will. Having a dying man and a receptacle to receive his consciousness is just too obvious.

That’s what I think too.  The more “Data” looking synths are an older model.  They may not even have flesh bodies as Soji does.

My guess is both the Romulans and Sutra have fundamentally misread the Admonition in different ways.

How do you “return empathy by killing trillions?” That seems like a pretty fundamental non sequitur.

Well, it’s creeping back in real life too. The show is commenting on that.

Clever. Hope that’s the case. It would explain why Sutra is a bit of a psychopath, if Lore raised and programmed her.

I think even an “organic” would survive the loss of an eye. If you drive the weapon in deep enough it’ll hit the brain — but that butterfly brooch wasn’t that deep.

There’s no reason they can’t make the thing look exactly like Picard, and it still be Patrick Stewart.

Well obviously Sutra didn’t want that. He has to be loose to be a credible threat.

I’m okay with it. I’ve waited 20 years to see Seven of Nine meet Locutus of Borg.

By the end he’ll transfer his mind into that “golem” thing. Or, it may be done without his knowledge — he’s mortally injured and Raffi and Agnes make the decision, but it’ll be done.

Did anyone get the sense they’re teeing up a Seven of Nine/Elnor Fenris Rangers spin-off? Seven and Elnor flying around the Alpha Quadrant in their broke-ass Borg cube, helping people who have no one else to help them.

That’s what I love about it. For the first time in 25 years, Star Trek is finally moving forward. No reboots, retreads, prequels. New characters, new stories. Read more

It really wasn’t a surprise at all.  I don’t think you’ve been paying attention.
