Impulse Speed Round Table

Now on to our 2022 predictions, with a few footnotes:


  • It will be announced that Mary Chiefo will have a recurring role as L’Rell on “Strange New Worlds”*
  • Gray will become Discovery’s ship’s counselor
  • We will get casting news on the new “Star Trek” movie
  • We will see Captain April in “Strange New Worlds”


  • Arex will appear as an officer on “Strange New Worlds”*
  • We will see Worf in “Picard” season 2 (and possibly Robert Picardo)*
  • The DMA is tied to the evolved form of V’ger, last seen at the end of “Star Trek: The Motion Picture”
  • We will see Kyle (TOS, Wrath of Khan) on “Strange New Worlds


  • “Picard” Season 2 will not involve a familiar trope (time travel, klingon alliance, mirror universe)**
  • When the source of the DMA is located, Cleveland Booker will try to attack it, no longer able to contain his anger 
  • We will see Geordi LaForge in season 2 of “Picard”
  • We will learn what species Dal R’El (“Prodigy”) belongs to (side prediction, he is a Talaxian)

*We could not confirm this information, as the series did not premier in 2021. We are rolling this prediction over to 2022.

**Although the trailer for “Picard” season 2 seems to indicate some familiar tropes will be used, we are giving this one the benefit of the doubt until we see the show.
