    Most of what people think Gene brought to Trek was actually from other people and usually something Gene disliked & tried to block.
    There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.

    One man's theology is another man's belly laugh.

    You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once.

    Don't ever become a pessimist... a pessimist is correct oftener than an optimist, but an optimist has more fun, and neither can stop the march of events.

    This ST:D show, getting the feeling it won't be Gene Star Trek. At least the other series tried and I actually like them. This one, getting a bad feeling since in my experience when something is getting so much hype and turns out to not be good. Rarely anything with lots of hype turns out good.

    I hate to be the one to tell you this but... Gene is dead. Sorry.

    He sorta died prior to DS9. So short of some fell necromancy or finding out he's been trapped in a pattern buffer for the last 20 years then DSC will fall into the same category as the latter TOS films, end of TNG, all of DS9, VOY, ENT, and the KT films as not being 'Gene Trek'.

    Incidentally that's the first time I've seen somebody use a name as part of Trek other than poor JJ.​​

    JJ Trek The Kelvin Timeline is just Trek and it's fully canon... get over it. But I still prefer TAR.

    All the Roddenberry flaming aside (people in a Star Trek Forum sure love dissing Gene for some weird reason pig-3.gif ) @artan42 is right. Gene Roddenberry lost creative control over Star Trek in TNG's third season. Everything that came after wasn't "Gene Trek" - it's curious to read a sentence similiar to "I have a feeling the new show won't be Gene Trek" in 2016.​​

    I LOVE the speculation. I especially love the line "we don't know near enought details to say it'll rock or suck." Back when people read, that was called judging a book by its cover.

    ha! On the surface, Breaking bad sounds stupid. watch it, and it rocks! It bugs me when people toss out judgement without ever seeing the thing. Who can forget the furious Heath Ledger Joker haters. The JJ haters (which be honest, Kevliin Timeline grows on you and Beyond just kicked some serious tail). Give it a chance man. I simply fail to see the logic in killing it before it even arrives.

    Also, it seems to me that more and more 13 episodes is considered a full season for cable and streaming shows (of which TRIBBLE is the later). Always leave them wanting more.

    And by "lost creative control" you really mean "suffered a debilitating stroke". But more so because it his later years he became increasingly hostile to those who actually made Star Trek something beyond an idea. He kept doing it until he died....

    From a report on the Mission New York convention.

    The most-anticipated panel of the convention was on Star Trek: Discovery with series consulting producer and writer Nicholas Meyer along with writer Kirsten Beyer. Beyer revealed that DSC would be a cross-media production involving television, novels, and comics.
    There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.

    As in there will also be novels etc available ala TNG, or that one needs the TV episodes, comics and novels to get the complete story? I have a sinking feeling it's going to be the latter option, and if so, that's well and truly killed any interest I had in the show... I enjoyed the TNG novels, but I resent the idea of having to buy supplemental media just to understand a television program... :unamused: :unamused:

    Cross media doesn't necessarily imply canon. 09 had its comic and game tie in that weren't canon. Though arguably a bad example as 'Nero' improved the film by filling in a chunk of the bad guys backstory.

    Well, this is the thing... As you say, it doesn't necessarily imply canon (none of the previous novels have been) but the Nero situation is a perfect example. As you say, those off-scene details about Nero definitely made things make sense, the problem (as with the Khan Awakening prior to Into Darkness) without those comics, the films themselves actually seemed to have plot holes which didn't make sense... I guess all I'm saying is that the movies needed the comics to fully make sense. A film (or TV show) should be able to stand on its own for audience comprehension. It shouldn't need additional material to be understandable... Hence my concern of if TRIBBLE is going down the 'JJRoute' of supplemental material, rather than TNG's... B) They're already making people pay to watch the series, making them then pay for additional material to fully appreciate a story, IMHO is a step too far... From a marketing perspective, yeah, great way to bring in more money. Not so nice to be on the receiving end of it though... ;)

    Actually, I'm pretty sure that if the books are being written by the same people who write the episodes that it WILL end up being canon. :p

    honestly it doesn't sound bad. there's only so much you can put on TV.

    Reminds me of part of the gimmick in a TV show that lasted a couple years on SyFy - can't recall the title for the life of me, but it took place in what was left of St. Louis, MO, after aliens (and some sort of apocalypse) came to Earth. There was a tie-in MMO, set in San Francisco, and the events of one would affect the course of the other. Not sure how much of a "success" all that was, because I found most of the characters frankly boring and tuned out after three or four episodes, but there it is.​​

    I don't have beef with the books being canon, especially if they're being written by the episode writers. Infact, that would be pretty cool. But. I do have beef with the idea that someone has to read additional material to get the full story and to actually make the episode/movie make sense... ;)

    I believe the show was called Defiance. The show was cancelled, but I think the game is still around.

    Defiance.

    I thought it was a fantastic series, and IMHO dealt with issues Trek would never have dared tackle, let alone show. That said, we have pretty much contrasting views on most things, so I'm not surprized you didn't like it... It ran to three seasons, but I'm not sure if it was intentionally cancelled, or if the producers decided to go out strong (and IMHO it was strong)

    Sop you think that what is on TV is only going to be pieces of episodes? why? There is no evidence of that.

    No, I'm concerned that it may be an 09/Into Darkness scenario where additional material was actually needed to explain plot points... I'm concerned, because the Powers That Be may well think 'well it worked for those films, it can work for us to bring in more $$s...' and if that turned out to be the case, it would show that TPTB care more about the $$s, than in putting out a quality series worthy of the franchise name...

    THAT Boat, sailed for the last time when They cancelled ENTERPRISE.

    It was pretty obvious from that point on that any new Trek was going to have to be a lot more profitable for CBS/Paramount to even consider making any more.

    I'm very curious to see just how the next movie develops, since "Beyond" doesn't seem to have been the blockbuster Paramount was hoping for.

    Well, this is the thing, and it keeps bringing me back to my oft-thought 'Why do we need more Trek?' IMHO, we don't. There're five series and thirteen movies to enjoy(or not) Plenty of books to read, and an MMO allowing everyone a chance to, to paraphrase Jango Fett, 'make their way in the universe'. I honestly don't believe that the franchise needs more. What there already is, is enough for people to enjoy, and on that alone, I doubt the franchise will ever die, in terms of having appreciators. If the franchise goes inactive, as Ned Kelly said, 'such is life...' B)

    What NEW things, we learned from the NY Con this past weekend...

    http://www.empireonline.com/movies/news/10-new-star-trek-discovery-revelations/



    The ships name is a homage to the one in Kubrick's "2001" movie.

    There will be new Aliens and Races, Planets & Ships introduced.

    Another Director was named, Vincenzo Natali.

    Nick Meyer said (paraphrasing) the show is not going to be perfect, but if one doesn't go in with outlandish expectations, it should be enjoyable.

    He also said (again paraphrasing) that the look of the show will not be exactly like The Original Series (1960's look), but they will update it to 2016 esthetics and they will do "the best they can" to emulate what came before.

    Again according to Meyer, Star Trek VI: the Undiscovered Country will have a BIG Influence conceptually on the show, because Bryan Fuller feels it is one of the best examples of Trek.


    B)

    Addendum:

    Majel Barrett/Roddenberry might just end up being the computer's voice for the show...

    http://io9.gizmodo.com/the-voice-of-star-treks-computers-could-be-coming-to-bo-1786251988

    More explanation about the reasons behind the shows name...

    They said that about Taylor's VOY novels and the various KT tie-inns (like the game), they still aren't canon.

    Maybe DSC will come about as CBS change their canon policy, but they haven't yet.

    YES! TUC is probably my favourite film (damn you BEY) and it really is like a little bit of DS9 in TOS.

    I don't see why she wouldn't be. We have 50 years of her voice saying almost anything necessary to feel fully part of the show.​​

    Jeri Taylor had been told that anything she wrote about Mad Kathy's youth would be considered as official source material (aka Mad Kathy Writer's Guide) which episodes would have to conform to. Someone changed their mind, gave Ms Taylor the finger, and did their own thing, regardless of if it tallied with her novel or not, and IMHO was a very TRIBBLE way of treating someone who puts in the work in good faith...

    The KT tie-ins: I'm not going to get into an argument over 'non-canon', because yes, the only thing which is really canon, is the released film/episode.

    But. The JJ films do have plot-holes which the tie-in comics not only fill, but were intended to fill all along. They might not be 'canon', but they Are Licenced, so considered as 'accurate until contradicted by a canon source'. The difference between the KT comics and Jeri Taylor's novels, is that the Powers That Be (Berman and Braga?) decided to deliberately ignore Jeri Taylor's writing (for whatever reasons they had for their beef with her) and deliberately film episodic material which contradicted the novels as a way of giving the finger to her work, and deliberately making it inaccurate, rather than having the professional courtessy to use it as the Writer's Guide it was intended to be ;)

    Seems the Romulans may be a major part of this new series.

    Or they discover that the Romulans have found a way to hear sounds in space, so they have to be really quiet (one of the things that bugged me about "Balance of Terror" - ooh, we can't make noise or they'll hear us! Come on, guys, your ship is in vacuum - you could hold a dance party on the bridge and the Roms wouldn't know!).​​

    Perhaps the writer was thinking submarines when he wrote... ;)
