    Lieutenant Tyler, eh? I wonder if he is– or is related to– Jose Tyler from Pike’s Enterprise. He doesn’t look anything like him, but that proves nothing, especially since Hollywood’s “screen genes” often make for odd matches.

    • Potentially. It’s a pretty deep cut but something we noticed as well.
