Everyone I know loves this show.

Just because it's our only new Trek. Season 1 was such a disaster that they had to essentially reboot the show, undo EVERYHTHING that happened in season one, and bring in the pre-Kirk crew of the Enterprise.

So, now, as a show about Captain Pike, it's okay. Maybe that's where they should have started.

Oh, good. Future Spock from the Kelvin Timeline is now an advising angel.

Which of your friends have praised this show, RC? Your neighbor's retarded 8 year old?

Future Spock is Nimoy! Except he's the "Red Angel" because they couldn't dig up Nimoy's grave and pose him for the camera.

Here's the debate rabbit hole (which shoots down the future Spock helping young Spock theory): https://redshirtsalwaysdie.com/2019/02/22/star-trek-discoverys-red-angel-not-spock/

Oh, good... The Temporal Cold War from Enterprise is back. Good job, lazy Discovery writers. (I wonder if they even bother with writers...)

Wait, so Nemesis is the last thing we got in the timeline, yes?

Nope -- the destruction of Romulus is the last moment of the original timeline. That happened around 8-10 years after Nemesis. This takes place ten years after that, which means that Starfleet, in this ongoing prime timeline, is essentially the only remaining superpower in the galaxy -- the Romulan empire has been shattered, the Dominion are bottled up, the Borg are crippled, and the results of the Dominion War have no doubt led to the creation of a highly militarized "never again" Starfleet.

He was in All Good Things, as well. (By the way -- the future scenes in All Good Things were set at roughly the same time as ST:P. And though that was only a possible future shown by Q, it's interesting that ST:P is mirroring that possible future.)
