Well at least if they're not now doing the rebooted Star Trek 4, there won't be two Spocks

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

Very cool, he is Gregory Peck's grandson,

They have also promised a new look for the Klingons too. perhaps more in line with what they should actually look like.

The current production team do seem committed to reversing some of the needless damage done to the established continuity by those originally tasked with reviving the franchise. They have a very difficult task but thankfully the trek universe has proven itself adaptable in the past.

With the Klingons, I’d put my money on a botched attempt to rectify the superhuman genetic treatment as the ‘in universe’ explanation for the over-Klingon Klingons in Discovery season 1.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

There was reference to Kahless, and how he created the first Bat'leth which was in a TNG episode.

'He took a lock of hair and flung it in the Volcano, to create the first Bat'leth.'

Apparently the fanatical Klingons we saw were inspired by that and got rid of their hair. Also there was mention that we only saw 6 of the 24 houses.

It is good though that the current show runners are trying to undo all the screw ups within canon/continuity and find ways of correcting them.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

well this is a let down. For some reason I had it in my head that there were 4 mini series each with 4 episodes in each telling a different story and I thought it made sense because it would work out at one series person month starting in October and take us up to Discovery season 2 in January. But no

Quote:
Mark the date: Thursday, October 4. That’s when CBS All Access will begin to roll out Star Trek: Short Treks, the four standalone stories building toward the early 2019 return of Star Trek: Discovery. As previously reported, each short will run approximately 10-15 minutes and will be an opportunity for fans to dive deeper into key themes and characters – including Tilly (Mary Wiseman), Saru (Doug Jones), Harry Mudd (Rainn Wilson, who directs his segment as well) and a new character, Craft (Aldis Hodge) -- that fit into Discovery and the expanding Star Trek universe.

The Star Trek: Short Treks will roll out in the following order:

Runaway” – Thursday, Oct. 4
Onboard the U.S.S. Discovery, Ensign Tilly (Mary Wiseman) encounters an unexpected visitor in need of help. However, this unlikely pair may have more in common than meets the eye.

"Calypso” – Thursday, Nov. 8
After waking up in an unfamiliar sickbay, Craft (Aldis Hodge) finds himself on board a deserted ship, and his only companion and hope for survival is an A.I. computer interface.

“The Brightest Star” – Thursday, Dec. 6
Before he was the first Kelpien to join Starfleet, Saru (Doug Jones) lived a simple life on his home planet of Kaminar with his father and sister. Young Saru, full of ingenuity and a level of curiosity uncommon among his people, yearns to find out what lies beyond his village, leading him on an unexpected path.

“The Escape Artist” – Thursday, Jan. 3
Harry Mudd (Rainn Wilson), back to his old tricks of stealing and double-dealing, finds himself in a precarious position aboard a hostile ship – just in time to try out his latest con.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

I always knew it was 4 episodes with it being one per month till the new series starts.

---------- Post added at 23:08 ---------- Previous post was at 23:04 ----------

Here was my post from July

They will focus on
Saru's backstory.
One about Harry Mudd
Tilly's journey on board Discovery
A man who wakes to find he is the only person on board a ship.

Also Pike's Number One, played by Majel Barrett in 'The Cage' will be played in Season 2 by Rebecca Romijn.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

I didn't see that, whatever press release I read at the time made me think there were going to be 4 mini series of indeterminate episode length but probably 4 episodes each so you would have one series per month and one of them was Captain Picard's. So is he having a full series of his own now?

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

Not sure what gave you those ideas.

Yes. Picard is a totally separate series and will be set roughly 20 years after Nemesis.

The plan in future is to always have some sort of Trek show on air or in production.

There were rumblings of a new animated show as well.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

Season 2 looks so much better than the first one. I just hope it holds up from the trailer as much as I enjoyed the first one it didn't grap me as much from the other trek series

There was a big change in Showrunner and production so they appear to have listened to the fans and undone some of the silly things that Simon Fuller brought in at the start of Season 1. However he was gone midway through season 1 and the latter half os the season does show a big difference from where it started.

but no with the bringing back of proper Klingons(albeit with a silly reason) and the apparent classic Klingon ships being reintroduced as well as tryig to cram in and fit it back to cannon in some ways, I appreciate their efforts but when you read some of their reasons and the excuses they are a bit lame.

For example, trying to tie back to Kahless and him cutting lock of hair and throwing it in a volcano to make the first Bat'lethm they have explained the no hair Klingons were because they were at war so shave all their hair and then grown it during war. but then they weren't at war in the start of the show so?.... but also the makeup is clearly different and facially the ridges and features are now more in line with the TNG Klingons.
