Quote:
“Through the Valley of Shadows” reveals that Boreth also naturally produces a rare element known to non-Klingons as time crystals. The Klingons learned early on that using the time crystals to manipulate the natural flow of time was dangerous. The monks on Boreth protect the time crystals from those who would try to abuse them.

This development led some Star Trek fans to wonder why no one mentioned these time crystals during Worf’s visit to Boreth. “Through the Valley of Shadows” writers Bo Yeon Kim and Erika Lippoldt explained to SyFy that nobody mentioned time crystals because it wasn’t relevant to Worf’s reasons for visiting the planet.

“Boreth has always been carefully established as a sacred place for the Klingons — and that’s not something we wanted to muck up,” the writers revealed. “Instead, we wanted to EXPAND on existing canon and the functionality of Boreth by introducing a hidden sect of monks who have dedicated their lives to guarding the time crystals. We loved the notion that this otherwise fierce warrior race has learned not to mess with something as dangerous and volatile as time.

“Worf would not have been granted access to the part of Boreth’s monastery that housed the crystals,” they continued, noting “that’s not why Worf was there.”

Who says they don't exist. Maybe the stories just didnt require them so they never needed to be mentioned.

We never heard of Q before TNG either.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

I don't think I can even be bothered to watch season 3 now that I have got Picard. There are too many things in it which annoy me and they outweigh the few good things about it.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

When season 2 of Discovery finished everyone was talking about how amazing Pike was and how he needed to stay in Discovery so we can see his continued adventures. The feedback must have been overwhelming because they have decided to make a spin-off series with Pike, No 1 and Spock in. I am laughing as I type this because I think it is going to be so popular that it is going to beat Discovery in the ratings.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

I can't be arsed with Discovery anymore. They did well to introduce more characters last season but it only highlighted how week and pointless the main cast is. The universe revolves about Burnham and her dopey officer cadet with a side of gay drama of the week. I think I read somewhere at the beginning of this year (and I am sure I posted it here) that they are "doubling down" on the gayness this season. We dont need it rammed in our face at every opportunity "Hello Klingons, can you hold off your attack for a few mins please, we are in the middle of a gay toothbrushing drama. Come back in 5 mins and we'll be good to go. Don't damage the engines too much because in 20 mins we'll be having another gay drama in engineering and won't have time to repair anything. In fact don't do anything at all just yet because I can't run my own ship. I have got a stupid officer cadet who i cant get rid of constantly breaking protocol and playing dumb on my bridge as well".

Nobody seemed to object when Kirk kept snogging all the alien girls - that wasn't seen as "a side of straight drama"...
