I finally get what Kaede's real deal was that she was in despair over how far humanity has sunk to where there was no hope to be seen
The ending, for all intents and purposes, reminds me of Ghostbusters 2, just without The Statue of Liberty but with Murokomo getting blasted by Susano-Oh

Ardra in actuality is a con-woman who uses her knowledge of the planet’s culture along with devices like transporters, holograms a…
Not to long ago, my video REVIEW of the movie Star Trek Beyond was claimed by Paramount Pictures that they owned the 'content', On top of that, months before CBS claimed ownership over a couple of my reviews of that horrible MacGyver reboot....still I wasn't given a copyright strike or anything, and it's not like my site, blog or youtube channel gets enough traffic for my to worry about lost revenue.
However, they have crossed the line.... last week, the awesome Tribbles in Ecstasy Podcast did a massive breakdown of the Star Trek Discovery trailer... and their YouTube channel did get a copyright strike, even though they did not use any media related to it. That is straight up bush league, because TIE is one of the best Star Trek related podcasts out there that gives strong attention to Star Trek Online on by the PC and on the consoles.
So while I was having thoughts of watching Star Trek Discovery even if it's going t…
