    There could still be rescue dogs in the future, from places without such an enlightened mentality as Earth.

    What would the trek, or at least the federation line be on animal husbandry and selective breeding? You KNOW there was some Cyrano Jones or Mudd type out there trying to breed great danes with klingon targs to create some kind of marketable super pet.

    McCoy in TNG's first ep.

    And for that matter, Spock in every fucking ep ever that isn't a flashback to kid Spock.

    There was at least one episode where he indicated his admiration and respect of horses, which also showed up a bit in Generations.

    Didn't Data say that McCoy was actually 137 in that episode?

    So it was Star Trek...beyond...a character's 90s. :ramen:

    The scene whips by too goddamned fast, but here's the best screenshot I could get of the crew on the bridge.

    They've gotta try to make an old dude look immortal.
    I know it can't be done, so I let it slide.

    Unless, of course, it’s not really Data, but B4 and his physical shell is breaking down.

    OK I'm aboard.

    And mystery girl is obviously Data's daughter or somesuch. Lal or somehow B4 got the Data imprint out of his head into a new body.

    Only if she starts lusting after the new Borg King (for more than 0.68 seconds).

    I think she's some sort of Borg. She'll be great at everything just like Burnham and have super powers.

    It's clearly B4 at least body-wise, right? Same display of disassembled parts.

    As for the Borg being back, they may be somewhat reduced - screengrabs show the shot of dudes on gantries with rifles has a sign saying "this facility has gone 5418 days without assimilation" and the gantries are those of a Borg ship - that's about 16 years so would fit with Endgame or thereabouts. Perhaps the Borg Cube has been modded to act as a prison for the more deranged former Borg after the Queen bought it? Apparently the guy who played Hugh is in this as well...
