Disco Pre-Finale Thoughts 

So just thinking about how the "Calypso" short story could fit in to the current events. If really jumps into the future, it needs to be far enough ahead for Control never to evolve. Burnam's mom jumped something like 950 years into the future. But in that episode, the ship says the crew left almost 1000 years ago. Does that mean they jump 950 forward, then leave the ship alone for another 1000 and Calypso happens 2000 years in the future?

Also, if you rewatch Calypso you'll remember that Craft talks about the annoyingly nostalgic and aggressive V'Draysh who his people were fighting in a war for 10 years.

I didn't catch this at all but if you read online the writer acknowledged who the V'Draysh are...(extra possible spoiler)

... it's the Federation, it's supposed to be a phonetic shortening that occurs over time. Something to think about.

@vegetablegremlin I do acknowledge that DS9 is more disco than Disco, but it's got me there so how could it fail.

Disco Pre-Finale Thoughts 

@vegetablegremlin but it does! It was only one time but Discovery is the first ship to ever have a dance party. It happened in that episode with Mudd taking over the ship.

Disco Pre-Finale Thoughts 

@quark EH not all that dances is disco

Disco Pre-Finale Thoughts 

@quark I don't think they there is any reason that Short Trip can't take place at any place way in the future, two millennia later, eight, twenty....

@quark Also, while my wife and I enjoy Game of Thrones, I am more interested in the Season Finale than I am for Game of Thrones or... well, just about anything due before Avengers: Endgame.

Disco Pre-Finale Thoughts 

@quark You just blew my mind. V'Draysh. Of course. That is intriguing!

Disco Pre-Finale Thoughts 

@quark I guess I'll rewatch Calypso to get ready for the season finale, hoping that they finished with the cheesy scenes.
