Considering how The Burnham-centric the universe in Discovery is, part of me fears this new human macguffin will somehow be related to her. We dodged the Borg bullet once, and this time they rolled out a Borg cannon. Not sure how I feel about that, but I think I’m leaning towards “must we?”

It’s painfully evident they still have no clue how to run a peak TV version of Star Trek if the trailer is any indication. In terms of the writers learning the ropes we’re still at the rough equivalent of TNG season 1, i.e. they seem to be copying a template that has worked elsewhere with little regard to the unique qualities of Trek that need to be adapted for whatever their new approach to storytelling is. This becomes an issue in the context of a show like Picard even more so than in the case of a misfire like Discovery.

I want to be very, completely wrong…
