The midseason finale of Star Trek: Discovery, "Into the Forest I Go", finally got this show to the place it should have been all season. Of course, in the process, it had to jettison a lot of character development it has been working on - but since it was mostly stuff that was bad, I'm perfectly happy letting them get away with it. This episode was the climax to a season that never existed, a season where the plot and characterisation was better. You can see that potential here.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
