    I somehow missed what an "xB" was: XB.

    That was another line where I'm glad I had closed captioning on.

    Have they explained how the Romulans ended up with this cube?

    I'm enjoying this show. This ep was very good. Nice to see them finally name Vasquez Rocks after shooting so much Trek there.

    I don't mind the JL, it shows me that there's a deeper relationship there than we've seen him have with anyone during TNG.

    Since When does Romulan blood act like an acid, and dead Romulans dissolving like that.

    I assumed it was some type of suicide pill, not a normal thing.

    And if the Star Trek world could have an occupying species' blood act like a bomb (I forget which Star Trek franchise that was on), spit that dissolves should be a piece of cake. ;)

    You might be thinking of a recent episode of The Orville. A little girl's blood when mixed with... something... became a bomb powerful enough to blow up starships.

    Or you might be thinking of something I'm not thinking of right now, but that's what first came to mind when you mentioned it.

    I vaguely remember that episode, thanks. I think that there also was a similar plot line in a Star Trek as well (imagine that, The Orville getting a plot idea from Star Trek, lol), and seem to recall that it was some members from an alien species who may have started out as friendlies but then turned out otherwise, using their potential for their bodies (maybe it just wasn't their blood) to become bombs to take over the Enterprise, having sacrificed one of their number to showcase that capability first, blowing up part of the starship.

    Ah, that's probably from Enterprise. Group of aliens started off being in the right place at the right time to save Enterprise, came onboard in friendship, refused to be scanned for 'religious reasons' (but really because they all had organic bombs implanted), one blew a hole in the ship, they took it over, forced the ship back to their homeworld.

    I'm in the midst of rewatching the TNG ep "Measure of a Man" involving Bruce Maddox. Had forgotten so many details but it's interesting what ST: P ends up referencing from it.

    From The Measure Of A Man (episode):

    Don’t want to say too much and spoil someone else’s experience but I am reading this book releases today which is intended to provide backstory in the period between identification of the supernova and the events of ST:p. I’m 16% in and enjoying it very much.

    It is going to be annoying that ST: P (without the space) will display as ST:p on this board!

    Well, you can call it PIC or something, like we have TOS, TNG, VOY, DS9, we have to add DSC and PIC to the list (Discovery and Picard).

    Or get rid of the colon. We also see STTOS, STTNG, STVOY STDS9 ...

    I vote for STP...but then the fans of the Stone Temple Pilots might be confused. I'll go with STPIC

    My first thought went to Stone Temple Pilots when I saw STP.

    For Funny Unicode I would have used ST⫶P.

    (I looked long and hard for a unicode Colon that would have been indistinguishable from a normal colon, but they were all too skinny, or had odd padding)
