Actually - maybe she IS wrong. The arrival of a rapid response ship is a gamechanger that allows the Federation to do things that it couldn't before. If they can sort the tech enough to upgrade it (and if Adira can upgrade the spore drive and get those pads off of Stamets), with some elbow grease they can create another spore drive ship and figure out how to have someone other than Stamets driving it. The inherent technical advantage that gives Starfleet is MORE than enough to stabilize the Federation without knowing what caused The Burn. I'm not convinced that this episode is meant to imply that this was an absolute necessity. Rather it seems like Saving Book was an absolute necessity for Michael, which Georgiou points out, and which is born out in the episode.

I cannot imagine that the future cannot reverse engineer the spore drive and make another one, which would be a game changer for sure.
I think the Burn thing is like a nice thread to keep things on the path invented in the writers room
Of course it would be nice to have some idea what that was and how and why it happened, but another spore drive and not tied to anyone going forward seems like the smart move for the future.
I, of course am very jealous we cannot have spore drives now. I hate waiting in traffic LOL

I think the idea is that they can't really feel safe using warp drive for non-essential purposes until they can be sure the Burn won't happen again.
