Tilly discovers a bio-neural scan of the Red Angel in Airiam’s code that matches Burnham.
Leland reveals that Section 31 built the Red Angel time travel suit twenty years ago in a temporal-arms race with the Klingons, and that Burnham’s parents had been part of that program. They plan to use Burnham as bait for the Red Angel.
OK Problem #1 – If the bio-scan matches Burnham and it turns out that it isn’t Burnham, does that mean that the scan was faulty ? Or did her mother use DNA from Burnham to deceive ?
#2 if they trapped future Burnham in a force-field with now Burnham, how was the doctor going to get in to administer help ?
It’s techno-babble in the extreme, and it all adds up to an interesting WTF ending.
Sixteen years ago the United States invaded Iraq. Based on an unconvincing excuse, articulated by George W. Bush in a speech days before invasion:
“Intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt that the Iraq regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised. This regime has already used weapons of mass destruction against Iraq’s neighbors and against Iraq’s people.”

It picks up a generation after the last, featuring the son of Kyle Riggs (Cody) and his adventures in space. Cody comes across as a spoilt brat. Not very nice and a jerk.
The book isn’t as good as I remembered the previous ones. But the story kept me going to the end.
