Really looking forward to this.
Watching the trailer I am kinda curious about one thing. Was any thought given to making Chekov look older?
It was mentioned that this takes place post-Voyager, which means that it would be sometime after, say, 2380? That makes Chekov at least 140 years old by that point. A couple of years older than McCoy was in TNG's premier.
Not a complaint. Just curious.
I think Chekov looks perfect. His real age and the shaved head serve him well for the role. I think that having old age makeup like what McCoy had in TNG would be too distracting.
