    God I would HATE if Burnham becomes the captain. I don't have the hate for her others seem to, and overall liked the second season of Discovery, but Discovery does put her on a pretty high pedestal, which is a continuing source of annoyance. ironically, as Discovery pulled back from focusing on her to make room for the others to actually get some character development, her sueness has increased a fair bit by making her the literal center of the events. At least in season 1, despite everyone holding her responsible for everything, it wasn't actually her fault.

    Anyway I think it's be a pretty crappy kick in the balls if they make someone besides Saru the captain. He's shown a good bit of character development and leadership quality, so it sucks to see him constantly just warming the bench. I loved Pike, but Saru was ready for the captain's chair when Pike came onboard. Just need to make it official.
    I empathise, its time for that particular lime light to shine elsewhere and develop another character, in my opinion.

    Saru was incredible in season two. I especially love his transformation from a quiet, cautious person into this assertive and imo corageous individual (especially in the way he reacts when he returns home). That confrontation with Pike was something too, I think to a degree Saru himself was surprised of his sudden confidence.

    If Saru isn't Captain in S3 it'll be a real missed opportunity.

    I think it will be someone other than Saru - they have a habit of curveball suggestions

    I'm just gonna throw in Georgiou. Judging by the trailer, Burnham will be on her own for a while before she reunites with the crew, and 950 years in the future, in an unknown domain you need someone with serious b**s - but even in his transformed form, thats not Saru. Thats Georgiou.

    (Also I love Michelle Yeoh's acting, and I want her back in the captains chair Big Grin)
