But after episode 4 when the Discovery crew finds Starfleet headquarters something shocking occurred to me; are we really watching Star Trek? Let me take you back to that episode.
Starfleet and the Federation is no longer based on Earth, but in a warped bubble of protection, the remaining ships is a rag-tagged collection of what was left of Starfleet and are now traveling through space looking for not only Federation survivors of the burn but a new home.
Are you with me 1970's Battlestar Galacatica fans?
But the burn, I think that is an easy see. The song showing up throughout the galaxy and so many know it...well it may turn out to be a hidden code that fractured Dilithium and caused the burn. Far fetched? No remember music is noting but math set to frequencies that sound good. So those same math frequencies can be structured in such a way that a binary code can be determined and infect computers that are activated by audio. When the music is played a ship is infected and in turn the dilithium burn. I would think the Klingon version is a bit different.
So the reboot of Star Trek Discovery Season 3 is also a reboot of Battlestar Galacatica, I just really do hope they do not use the glass wearing guy as the leader of a breakaway AI race that wants to destroy the rag-tag fleet searching for a new home, I hope his name is not Baltar; and I hope the music is not the cause of the burn.
