    Well, from my point of view, it should be Prime Lorca.

    *Spoiler*
    According to the end of the 2nd Discovery Novel 'Desperate Measures' Prime Lorca nay be still alive
    Do you mean "Drastic Measures"? If so, I recently picked up that novel on sale. I haven't had the chance to read it yet, but hopefully soon.:)

    I heard that there was a plan to it:

    1.) Lorca
    2.) Pike
    3.) Decker
    4.) Garth
    5.) Burnam
    Why is Decker in the middle? Are talking the TMP Decker? Are these the Captain's before Kirk leading up to TMP? Spock was Captain somewhere between TMP and into TWoK.

    considering that when Season 3 premiers Discovery will now be in the 32nd Century... so logically Saru should be captain, with Burnham as his first officer.... but there is also the possibility of a brand new captain from the 32nd century....

    There was the TOS Matt Decker who was the the father of the TMP Decker.

    I reckon it would either be Saru as captain and Burnham as No. 1, which makes sense based on how they crew has evolved over time.
    But seeing as Burnham is likely lost from Discovery for at least some of the season to start with may that's not possible.

    Maybe having the opposite with Burnham as captain would still work as it's hardly going to be typical Starfleet protocol from the get-go in this series.

    And having said that they might throw a curve ball and have nobody take over as captain seeing as they are now lost in the far future;; perhaps they end up as some sort of community command system where no one person is in charge.

    I don't think it matters who's captain, because after Pike, who on Discovery can fill those shoes?

    If we convert them to a pair of heelless high heels, I think Saru can fill his shoes. *LOL*

    I think Saru would be the best choice, because he has an evolving command presence that is unique and refreshing, like Pike's was. He encourages, inspires, and pushes when needed only to the degree that's needed. And since he doesn't have the fear response anymore, but has all of the wisdom associated with it, he's fully capable of command.

    Plus, he's technically the captain already. Saru was Pike's XO, and he was placed in command during the fight. There shouldn't be another captain. It's like if Riker suddenly got stranded in the future after Picard got captured by the Borg and say, Jellico was off ship somehow, Riker'd be the captain. He had direct command, and he also has the most seniority in his position, it appears, unless Reno or my beloved spacewife, the Barzan security officer whose name escapes me, have more time in their positions.

    Burnham shouldn't be captain, in my opinion, because her character works so well as a foil to captains. She's a great XO, y'know...besides the neck pinching thing., because she always has an alternate plan and can argue her point well. I think her character loses something if she turns out to be captain, and we also lose the fresh new perspective of having a main character NOT be the Captain. I'm not going to cry if she is, of course, but I'd prefer that she be an XO.

    Nhan is the Barzan security officer who stayed on board. She was a pretty cool character, i'd enjoy seeing her get more screentime.

    I agree Burnham works better as an opposition to a more standard captain figure, and with Saru you get that. They function well as Captain & XO. Saru is the obvious choice but you never know with this series.
