“The Future is the past. The past is the future. It all gives me a headache.”
– Capt. Janeway
So does the belief that episodes have to occur one after the other; three leads to four, four to five, and six ends up on ESD in the
24 25th century. The last 24 hours has been a headache with many Star Trek Online enthusiast’s wondering is this it? What the frack…!?
If anything we’ve learned from watching Enterprise or Voyager – time travel doesn’t happen in a linear fashion. The Daniels we meet in Cold Front isn’t the first time we’ve met him – that actually comes later – from his point of view. The same goes for Seven of Nine’s (and Prime Nine’s after future Nine dies) repeated incursions in Relativity. And don’t get me started about causality loops in The Year of Hell, parts 1 and 2.
I feel a canon headache coming on…
Many Bothans’ died bringing this information to me (or haven’t yet, or won’t die depending on your interpretation of temporal incursions). Time streams can be messy before the sort themselves out.
If Agents of Yesterday is an expansion about time travel, then it can’t have a traditional arc of episodes. That content will happen in the past, your present and in the future. For that reason, we won’t necessarily see episodes, one after another in chronological order. And I’m just talking about the content – not anything else already leaked. It’s not just a replay. The time stream is fickle, and not everything Agents of Yesterday has been revealed.
But, but, but how and where will they appear? Muah-ha-ha… I don’t know, as the leak isn’t telling more.
So relax. I’m as impatient as everyone else. The fact that I have played more episodes in the future, or rather will play, should be of no concern to me yesterday 😉
Now excuse me, I need some Advil.
Also – my friend Timberwolf has just published another interview with Producer Maria Rosseau aka ZeroniusRex Round 2!!! Worth a look:
