I totally missed that. I probably miss most of those references. I've re-watched most of TNG, DS9, Voy and Ent over the past few years, but just wouldn't make the connection.I didn't know about some of the Easter Eggs like USS Nog (Eisenberg-class) until I'd heard about them at work and thru other sites.
When I saw the interrogator, I knew he looked familiar, so I checked imdb. David Cronenberg, yup. I'm not sure where I've seen him before. Good casting choice. The scenes with him and Philippa were great.Not exactly an Easter Egg but the man with glasses is played by master of body and psychological horror David Cronenberg and when after being interogtated and Burnham saw her in the corridor one of the ways of interpretatiing the look on Philappa's face was she had just been psychologicaly water-boarded.
Speaking of Burnham, Star Fleet is so uncertain what "The Burn" was it could have been a person.
No. Someone (Tilly?) mentioned it was a later iteration... like the 10th or 11th Voyager? I don't remember the exact number.Was the USS Voyager in this episode, the same one from Voyager?
Tilly seemed to come to that conclusion using the trailing letter in the registration.No. Someone (Tilly?) mentioned it was a later iteration... like the 10th or 11th Voyager? I don't remember the exact number.
Fun fact, the future Gerald R. Ford-class nuclear aircraft carrier CVN-80 will be the ninth US Navy ship to bear the name USS Enterprise. The first was a sloop in the Revolutionary War. So 11 Voyagers over the course of 8+ centuries is plausible. At the rate ships get destroyed in the Star Trek universe, I'd have expected more.It was Voyager J, which would be the 11th generation (the first generation has no letter, the second is "A" and so on).
The first Voyager didn't come along until over 100 years after Discovery left for the future.
We are finally on the verge of reaching our destination. Federation and Starfleet headquarters. Separate entities that must now abide together;* Ok, Discovery finds
Pax HeadquartersStarfleet Headquarters.
Also, given Starfleet's history with Admirals, you still have to consider that Admiral Vance is covering up critical information about "The Burn" and/or is responsible for it.
I wonder what's the story behind the David Cronenberg guest spot.
I've already stated my belief that somehow Burnham and possibly the Discovery crew are responsible for the Burn.If The Burn was something done by someone or something external to the ship, it's just a monster to be defeated. If Discovery or something related to it caused The Burn, then we have internal conflict. Season 2 used that setup with the "breadcrumb" events, ending up with the twist of Michael being the one doing the events using the suit. I'd guess it's the angel suit or her Mom... dunno how, but it's gotta be something like that.
Also, the "-A", "-B", etc suffix was really only used for "legendary ships".It's also possible that there were years/decades/centuries that went by without a Voyager being in the fleet - there aren't generational issues where if something happened to the USS Voyager, then the USS Voyager-A would be commissioned. It could be periods where there was no need for an Intrepid-class starship, so once the last got decommissioned, none existed for a while.
The only requirement is that there doesn't exist two Voyagers that exist at the same time without a way to differentiate them.
It's also ironic that the first spaceship Enterprise didn't actually go into space...
