Re: DSC S1: The War Without, The War Within

Re: The phasered fortune cookies. The odd thing about them since their first appearance in Ep 3 is that we never saw a fortune paper come out of any of them. And now we never will.

Re: DSC S1: What's Past Is Prologue

It occurs to me that the setup for the next installment in some ways mirrors (no pun intended), Star Trek Into Darkness. Starfleet is too goody-goody to fight the ruthless Klingons effectively, so they must rely on someone from outside their timeline to show them the way. In STID, that's time-crossing (and timeline-branched) KHAAAAN!, inexplicably repurposed (and resurfaced) as a weapons contractor by the morally bankrupt admiral. In DSC that's dimension-crossing Georgiou, who apparently will offer her mad tactics (and recipes?) for dealing with Klingons to a potentially corruptible Admiral Cornwell. It could be that Cornwell, who undoubtedly has an axe to grind with the Klingons and brought Sarek with her so he can use logic to justify almost anything, will go along with one of Georgiou's ideas, and it will turn into a major fiasco and war crime, cueing the sort of "This isn't who we are" bromide that ended STID.

As to the Green Spore, there are a lot of possibilities (most mentioned above) that seem very human-centric (Lorca, MU Lorca, MU Stamets, Culber, or the "life essence" of any of these). But it appears to me that the "network" is at least a semi-sentient organism that likely has had enough of humanoid interference. So how about this: Green Spore as its representative eventually takes over Tilly to communicate that sentiment to the DSC crew (Locutus of Spore?). Failing that, Green Spore Tilly sabotages Discovery's drive in such a way that PU's connection to the network is severed forever, resolving (more or less) the apparent continuity glitch with future/past series that the "spore drive" has always represented.

Re: VOY S4: Concerning Flight

Interference from a scattering field, or something. Perhaps a flock of starlings. Don't ask why when watching Voyager - they can come up with convenient technobabble to cover EVERYTHING.
