    He wanted love instructors and 3 breasted women, he would have loved it. Kurtzman does not need to learn a damn thing from anyone on this board.

    Four-breasted. It's Paul Verhoeven who's a three-breast guy.

    It sounds almost like they have a story reason to have her there.

    I don't understand the issue with making Chapel a more well rounded character. "Oh but she's not like that in TOS" well damn sounds like TOS wasted her huh? What an idea.

    I'm pleased to hear Meyers express a willingness to break with the original series in order to bring the characters and stories alive. That's vastly preferable to being precious with the details. I know departures and creative revisions bug some people, but to me it signals the way Star Trek has become a bit of a modern myth insofar as the characters have outlasted their actors and have gone on to exist as stories we retell in new ways. It's an exciting thing. I hope that translates into an excellent show.

    Roddenberry had a similar thought, at least at one point in his life.

    This Christine Chapel brings more to her part in two episodes than TOS was able to do with the character, ever. I'm perfectly fine if she never resembles that character at all.

    What are the right reasons?

    There've been two episodes?

    The first five episodes were released in advance to the entertainment press for review purposes. Serveaux has managed to see the first two of those five.

    Because she wants to (and both parties have agreed it's not cheating).

    Firstly, I LOVE the actress they chose. Didya notice the resemblance to Amanda Spock's mother? I will try this one out for one season even after my disappointments with Discovery and Picard. Not loving the kinda adolescent writing I've seen in the trailers. We fans always get the impression that the writers are laughing at us.
    Before the nits start. Nowhere in TOS does it state exactly WHEN Chapel joined Enterprise, only that she joined to search for Roger Korby. Since Uhura is just a cadet and Chapel has a PHD. she must be considerably older than Uhura. I'm also wondering about that "unrequited" love. Especially the "unrequited" part. Got a feeling many old fans are going to be shocked and dismayed at what they do with this.

    Don't think so. He may be Data's great great grandfather. His name was Korby. Roger Korby.

    Chapel I believe, has a PhD.

    I know it's annoying but consider how brilliant you have to be to get a spot on the Flagship of the Federation. Brilliant people are arrogant. But, for the audience's sake they should tone it down.

    Not sure about the timeline on Korby. We don't know how long he was lost but Chapel was his research assistant. Perhaps she will meet him soon and they will become engaged. The story is so thin they could do quite a lot with it.

    Does Canon, as in, the actual episodes ever state when Chapel joined Enterprise? I don't think so.
