Warp Speed Round Table


Last time around we asked you to invent a unique way to destroy the new Enterprise – NCC-1701-F

Mad Marv gave us this scenario: “I predict that the main computer will gain sentience from a transporter accident with The Doctor (from Voyager).  His pattern in the buffer jumps the shar..firewall and rub off onto the main computer.  The computer starts to speak and sound exactly like Moriarty while totally denying that Moriarty is back.  Everything goes downhill from there until Moriarty decides to time travel the Enterprise back to his home in 19th century England.  He drops a decimal point, or three, in his calculations and the Enterprise goes somewhere/somewhen and is never seen again.  Maybe.  Depends if he takes Jellico, Pulaski, etc. with him.”

This time we ask:

“What are your top 3 moments from Discovery, seasons 1-4?”

Time to refill the dilithium chamber and warp on out of here!
