    Also, Rebecca Romjin has said that she's seen the DSC Enterprise bridge and was visibly emotional (in a good way) over it. And this is someone who grew up watching TOS (with her mother). If RR approves of the set, I'm prepared to believe her.

    Damn, she must have got into a world of trouble for spilling it.

    She spilled nothing. She didn't describe what the bridge was like, she only said that she HAD seen it.

    She didn't spill anything really. I think she said in an interview that she was on a set that made her tear up, but she couldn't talk about it. <--- And that was it.

    If you didn’t know it was the original Enterprise bridge, would you be able to recognize it as such? (Versus any other starship bridge.)

    That's a huge spill. Even 3 weeks ago all head production staff were publicly pretending it didn't exsist in any interview.

    IDK - all through the run up to the question: "What's going to happen in S2...like will we see Spock?"

    Kurtzman was all: "They've already recast the character once and Zachary Quinto did a good job; so no, we wouldn't be recasting the character again..."

    And lo and behold, and nearly right out of the gate once ST: D S2 production began suddenly it's: "Ethan Peck cast as Mr. Spock..."

    So, yeah, I don't put much stock in denials when it comes from ST: D production staff. ;)

    Hardly. Production began April last year. Ethan Peck wasn't announced until August.

    Another question, if it hasn't been asked: How easily would all this firsthand information be traced back to you Hoity? You might want to release less information as to not immediately identify yourself and be forced away from the production areas. If there's still the potential for legal ramifications, I would recommend you keep the info spreading at a more slower pace.

    She never actually specified that it was the bridge, just that there was a set that made her, as a fan of the original series, very emotional.

    Maybe she just saw the door to Spocks room ;)

    As I recall her late mother was a big fan and that emotional connection was why she teared up.

    Yeah, many of us just kinda-sorta assumed it was the bridge.

    Exactly. I doubt that full-grown Spock was part of the plan under the fired showrunners.

    I like the theory and I like your guesses for what they'll see!

    Back on December 15 Dennys Ilic posted a picture of himself together with Kurtzman with the caption "On the bridge of the sunning USS Enterprise build with producer Alex Kurtzman. I’d love to point the camera in the other direction but I’d have to kill you Or me!"

    That background looks like the Discovery bridge set, to me. If it is, the camera in the opposite direction would mean that they have the two bridge sets built virtually side-by-side?

    Well, they have the largest soundstage in the world, so room wise it would be possible.

    Doesn't Peck voice over Spock's log entry in the first episode of season 2? Plans can't have changed too late, if they did.
