    Yeah, Hollywood is different now. This new Trek series can be considered a limited-run show, as can The Walking Dead.

    Neither show runs a 20-26 episode season (although, I don't watch TWD).

    Glad they got the lead actress figured out!

    Also interesting that the article lists three actors as Klingon cast members, so same crew or Klingon "hero ship" ?

    Klingon "hero ship". If Discovery is set 10 years before TOS, then there is no way that there will be Klingon crew members on a Starfleet ship. The original trailer marketed Discovery as "New Crews. New Villains. New Heroes. New Worlds." Therefore, the only options were an Outer Limits style of show where each episode featured new characters, story, and setting or there are multiple crews that are focused on in the same setting and story. So we might have 3 Federation crews, 1 Klingon crew, and 1 alien crew that hasn't been mentioned yet where there might be a few episodes that doesn't have the Federation crews.

    The Outer Limits style show would have worked well if they wanted to tell stories in different settings like have a few episodes set between Enterprise and TOS, a few episodes set between TOS and TNG, and a few episodes set after Nemesis. Of course, the production values for such a setting would be too expensive. However, this was speculation that only came out after the first trailer was released and we had no actual information about the series.

    DSC is set ten years prior to TOS right? I wonder what the reason they didn't recast Ben Cross was?

    Norway and Yeager dammit... I still want my Typhoon and Jupiter though.
    JJ Trek The Kelvin Timeline is just Trek and it's fully canon... get over it. But I still prefer TAR.

    So, my theory of DSC being about the genesis of Sarek's peace initiative with the Klingons... ain't dead! :smiley:

    So NOW, they are willing to be "flexible" with the release date of the show...

    http://www.digitaltrends.com/movies/star-trek-discovery-stuck-in-spacedock/

    Perhaps maybe Fuller will be coming back, maybe they decided his guiding hand is necessary for it to be the Hit show they want it to be.

    Here's hoping...


    I'm thinking we may not see this now till the fall of 2017.

    I think you're right.

    And, I wonder about the Fuller thing, too. That drama seems unnecessary, now in retrospect...

    ...

    Why does this sound like they're trying to can it?
  • mhall85mhall85 Member Posts: 2,852 Arc User1
    I don't think they're trying to can it.

    Maybe CBS is shooting too high, or not high enough... but, the fact that filming has begun should prove to be good news.

    They better have lots of details in blu-ray special features, LOL.

    This delay probably also means that STO will be able to get stuff from "DISCOVERY" into the game by Christmas this year.

    I wouldn't be so sure about that. thats assuming that it'll even come out this year. thats looking less and less likely. thats assuming it doesn't get killed entirely before it hits the air, which is still a possibility, especially given what a trainwreck its been so far
  • lordrezeonlordrezeon Member Posts: 399 Arc User
    I don't think the delay is a product of malice. I think it is more likely that they simply rushed out the announcement and estimated release date for the Trek anniversary without actually having any idea of what the show would be. From what I've seen it usually takes around a year or more to get a TV show up and off the ground, so it is no surprise that they have had to delay things.

    Yes but Gotham's Azrael cast as Sarek :)

    Neat. I remember him better from that short-lived series The Cape. I liked him there.

    And I think he has a face that's very easy to make to look Vulcan.

    Much, much better in my opinion. If the Discovery herself gets a similiar overhaul I wouldn't mind.

    "Critics who say that the optimistic utopia Star Trek depicted is now outmoded forget the cultural context that gave birth to it: Star Trek was not a manifestation of optimism when optimism was easy. Star Trek declared a hope for a future that nobody stuck in the present could believe in. For all our struggles today, we haven’t outgrown the need for stories like Star Trek. We need tales of optimism, of heroes, of courage and goodness now as much as we’ve ever needed them."

    Sigh. I preferred the old one. That is clearly a DS9 era ship. How hard can it be to get the ship right? It needs to take design clues from either Kelvin era ships (which would still be in service) or brand new cutting edge ones like the TOS Constitution. Not the 24th century.

    Edit: The original design is still in the video so fingers crossed it stays. Gods forbid Star Trek try anything new for a change instead of the same Akira over and over again.

    It does kinda-sorta look like a relative of the NX-01 though.

    I just wish they would go with an earlier version of the Constitution's Nacelles.

    So, this video features a look at the new uniforms. Anyone see a capture of it?

    Also, I guess the little horn riff is the Discovery theme. It's appeared in almost every official video, and it ain't the classic Courage fanfare.

    I like it. I like the blue, it resembles the ENT, Kelvin, and Franklin era uniforms as well as the excursion uniforms from BEY.
