As this quest is again C&P for the Klingon side, i really doubt, they would use either a Federation or Klingon faction as this would need to make differences in the future.

The chance of it being future guy specifically is unlikely but not impossible. either way i would like to see him make an appearance again.

but we do know the tholians are sniffing around the place, and they have been involved in the temporal cold war. the new sector has the suliban system which is so far unused and could indicate the next FE series will be time travel based (especially as they took the time to make timeships, bridge and uniforms, they often like to then use them in episodes).

so there could well be some time travel involved at some stage.

I think it's likelier that we will be dealing with a telepathic virus.

Candidates include the Komar, Redjac's species, the Pah Wraiths. My hunch is the ancient lifeforms whose tech was found on Camus II.

That planet had mysterious radiation as well.

And the New Romulus Datachips I've gotten so far seem to hint at the presence of a telepathic predator. Logs full of Romulans with voices in their heads, going mad. There's a reason why the ancient Romulan settlers left this planet alone. I'm half expecting to discover celebium.

Of note is that the advanced species on Camus II died out... you guessed it... 200,000 years ago.

I think that if Future Guy was a Romulan, or really if there was any Romulan with time travel powers, they would be trying to stop the destruction of their homeworld, rather than messing around in the 22nd century or anytime else (unless they think the explosion was a good thing and want to support the idea of a new, open Romulan society on New Romulus, and disapprove of the Iconian involvement with the Tal Shiar, but I think having an intact homeworld would trump other issues).


I'm much more interested in the relationship between the Iconians and the Tholians. My theory is that the Tholians are the Iconians - they're mucking about with crazy dimensional transports, they can destroy Borg with ease*... I bet in the future the Tholians went back in time, became the Iconians, and then went off the radar to assist their past selves in the present time.

*I guess that technically applies to Starfleet and the KDF as well these days, but I think we can be sure that they're not the Iconians.

You've gotten lucky with the datachips. All I've gotten is "Insert History Text Here".

Submit bug reports. I got one of those, and reported it. I had hoped it was just one, but if it's multiple that's a bummer.

Can't tell if your serious or not.

On topic, I actually think that it's D'Tan that messaged you and hid the recording. With the Tal'Shiar taking an active interest he has to be careful of his moves. If he is too overt they may just decide to risk making a martyr of him, but at the same time he wants the Romulans to start over and doing it by hiding things in the manner that is currently customary for Romulans is a bad start and one that's completely opposed to his expressed views. Plus, while we've seen very little of him as far as characterization is concerned I find it plausible that he'd find it an amusing irony to use the "old ways" of subterfuge and secrets to facilitate the openness and cooperation that he wants to make the cornerstone of the New Romulus community.

Hadn't thought of that. That seems fairly likely, given that the hidden camera is in his office - one would think he had his place swept for bugs.


And yes, I'm serious about the bug reports. The Romulus history chip I got should not say "HISTORY TEXT GOES HERE," so clearly it's bugged. I'm also serious about it being a bummer if there's more than one that Cryptic forgot to fill in.

I'm also serious about the Tholians being the Iconians or proto-Iconians. I really think that's what's going on.
