STAR TREK: DISCOVERY (2017)
« on: June 19, 2017, 09:44:38 AM »
Since I love discussing Star Trek in my own thread, perhaps it's time to start a dedicated thread for the new Discovery series:
http://iearths.blogspot.ca/2017/06/star-trek-discovery-sets-official-fall.html
We can discuss the new show here and everything else Star Trek can still be discussed/posted in my other thread ;D

Not sure how I feel about Jason Isaacs playing him.

I'm still not sure why they aren't continuing the time line past Voyager ???
Didn't they learn from their mistakes with Enterprise? ?

Fuck yes.  I think the government should take $1 billion dollars out of the defense budget and devote it to making the best Star Trek series ever for the good of the people.

WTF, was there one clip in that thing longer than 2 seconds.  Seriously, try counting past 2 on any clip...

Guess they think anyone that might sign up for All Access would have severe A.D.D.

The Harry Mud character being "dark" and zero humor in the trailer is not a good sign.

Yeah, the Klingons are all wrong.  This is looking more like a new reboot, making up their own timeline.

Here's hoping the show by Seth MacFarlane, The Orville, will be more like Star Trek than anything we have gotten in the last decade.

I'm hoping the show will explain the Klingons.  Hoping that they'll end up a offshoots and that the old ones still exist.  If anything the uniforms and other things remind me of Enterprise.  I'm hopeful that Orville will be good,  but Seth's character looks like he'll be another obnoxiously smug self-insert that he played in A Million Ways.

Yeah it was mentioned that this is a distinct tribe/group of klingons.
