    Maybe Picard is coming out of retirement because this man has returned...Did he really die in the Wrath of Khan?...:Whistle:

    It would be silly if he did, consider he had all those capabilities to clone and engineer that he had. Nope, that guy is still around.

    I'm waiting to see how the first real trailer presents this new series, it ought to be a good one, I have my doubts about the success of it yet...I still say the franchise needs to keep moving forward, like what happens after the dominion war and what happened to the borg after they were decimated by future Janeway...

    Well, ST Discovery's 3rd season will take place 1,000 years in the future from season 2.

    I have not yet watched any episodes of Discovery, I didn't like how the klingons looked when I saw a trailer and since then had little desire to watch it, that and I didn't want to see a past era series again...lol

    Apparently. From July 2019:

    For Star Trek fans, there's a lot to look forward to on television. After Star Trek: Discovery launched in 2017, the producers have been working on spinoffs and new shows, from a Section 31-focused series to an animated show on Nickelodeon. Much of the focus in the Trek world has been on Star Trek: Picard and Sir Patrick Stewart's return to his iconic role, but Discovery is still on going, and showrunner Alex Kurtzman says the third season will be quite different, thanks to the major twist at the end of Season 2.


    In order to defeat their enemies, Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) and the crew of the Discovery leapt forward in time — 1,000 years in the future, beyond what any Star Trek show has shown audiences. Season 3 will dive into what that means, and how the universe has changed, according to Kurtzman, who spoke to Deadline at San Diego Comic-Con.

    Kurtzman offered a few teases of what audiences can expect in Discovery, while noting how gratifying it was to see audiences respond positively to the increased elements of canon that the show introduced in Season 2, including storylines for Captain Pike (Anson Mount) and Spock (Ethan Peck). But just because Discovery is flying into unknown territory, that doesn't mean canon goes out the window.


    "But the fun for us was actually to take the shackles off and free ourselves from established canon by jumping almost a thousand years into the future, and yet what we’re not doing is divorcing ourselves from canon," Kurtzmzan added, while noting the temporal leap at the end of Season 2 allows the writers to "put everything in a blender and shake it up."


    Expectedly, Kurtzman was quiet on specific details of what Season 3 will bring, but did say audiences would see a "whole new side" of Burnham's character.


    Star Trek: Discovery's third season is expected to arrive on CBS All Access in early 2020.

    And from April 2019:

    Talking to the Hollywood Reporter, showrunner Alex Kurtzmann sheds some light on the decisions leading into the finale, which ends up with the Discovery and her crew flung through a wormhole 950 years into the future of the Star Trek universe, immediately transforming the prequel into one of the furthest-flung sequels the series has yet seen.

    “We love playing within canon,” Kurtzmann explained. “It’s a delight and a privilege. It’s fun to explore nooks and crannies of the universe that people haven’t fully explored yet. That being said, we felt strongly that we wanted to give ourselves an entirely new energy for season three with a whole new set of problems. We’re farther than any Trek show has ever gone. I also had experience working on the [J.J. Abrams] films where we were stuck with canonical problems. We knew how Kirk had died, and we wondered how we could put him in jeopardy to make it feel real. That’s what led us to go with an alternate timeline; suddenly we could tell the story in a very unpredictable way. That’s the same thought process that went into jumping 950 years into the future. We’re now completely free of canon, and we have a whole new universe to explore.”

    His answer seems to suggest that, yes, for a while, at least, Discovery is sticking with the future as the show’s new status quo. It also means that Discovery going forward will be a show without the narrative constraints of the first two seasons, fully acting out its own imagination in terms of storytelling. After all, we don’t know anything about this future. Anything could happen. Going boldly, indeed.

    WOW this might be a really exciting season for Discovery, Janeway and Seven of Nine went 500 years into the future and Archer did too but nothing past that and we didn't really see much into that future, but they did have time vessels...The writers have to be clever because if time vessels are still a part of the future in 950 years then one could simply put the Discovery vessel back in the past rather easily and quickly...

    This may be a grand season like the Xindi season was for the Star Trek Enterprise series...

    Maybe Captain Braxton of the time ship Relativity (the future ship from the Voyager series) will come to the rescue of Discovery and send them home when their journey into the future is finished...:Whistle:

    I still haven't watched any of this series yet and the third season hasn't started yet, but I'm looking forward to watching this new season coming...I'm currently downloading the last episode of the second season to see what transpired to fling them a thousand years into the future...If I enjoy that episode I may go back and watch more of the previous episodes, as I said before, I'm not a fan of retro Star Trek series, I think they need to keep progressively moving forward in the overall story-telling...Running a series from pre-Kirk or retro stardates is lazy writing and story-telling in my opinion, but now that this third season of Discovery is going to be in the future, this can be very interesting and exciting lol...

    I watched Star Trek Discovery season two episode thirteen, which is the last episode of that season, I didn't understand what the big drone battle was all about, but of course I need to watch previous episodes to sort that out...I did watch as Discovery willingly went into the future, the reasons appear to be tied to that battle of which a younger Spock is involved in along with the younger crew of the Enterprise that had Christopher Pike as captain...

    The suit that was used to go into the future, was it also from the future?...It seems like very advanced technology for that era, and doesn't look like a Star Fleet design...I assumed by watching that single episode that they are not certain of the point in the future they are traveling, but I'm confused as to why the Enterprise crew lied and said the ship Discovery was destroyed and all the crew dead...So they do not expect Discovery to return?...Will Discovery remain in the future for the rest of the series now?...It seems Star Fleet's Temporal Prime Directive would prevent that, a directive they applied 500 years in the future according to Star trek Voyager's five or six episodes dealing with Star Fleet personal from the future, like episode twenty-four of season five of Voyager...In that episode Seven of Nine is recruited by Captain Branson of the time ship Relativity from the 29th century, 500 years in Voyager's future, to save Voyager from destruction...
