That‘s actually the Shenzhou/Section 31 bridge set, not Discovery.
Yup, the Shenzhou set is very high from the ground so they could add green screen bellow it. This is also why the second 31 bridge has that pit in the middle. The discovery set is only about 5 feet from the ground.
Thanks for the info.
Hypothetically, they could've had Peck ADR his voice in over someone else later in production. Or even the whole scene could've been added in to include a voice recording.
Plus I believe it was stated the first 4 episodes of Season 2 were scripted and in production BEFORE said showrunners were fired; and Ep. 5 was the first actual episode done fully with the new show runners.
I agree. The times they've recreated TOS sets (Relic, Trials and Tribble-ations, In a Mirror Darkly), it was neat from a nostalgia standpoint, but not something I would want to see on a regular basis.
Indeed, that was part of the charm and humor of the DS9 episode, all the cracks about the look of everything. That episode works because of nostalgia.
Hey Hoity, a question: Has there been any inquiries or rumors of a Trek series being done on Pike's Enterprise? Has there been a noticeable reaction to the demand for such a show? People REALLY like Anson Mount as Pike and we all pretty much want more of him and the adventures of the pre Kirk Enterprise.
Or perhaps it uses a force field that can be made opaque, like @Hoity Toity mentioned about Sickbay?
That's the opposite of a reassuring argument. If there's no oversight for something this bizarre making it through post-production onto an aired episode, what's to stop it from happening again, or something even worse?
I guess we can add photon torpedoes being launched from the warp nacelles to that list where the ball was dropped. I guess they thought the two small holes are torpedo launchers. What I do not get is - while the scale of Discovery is apparently inconsistent within in the show - the CGI artists have a default scale in their software they should know something is off if a torpedo is the size of three decks.
Discovery seems to fire torpedoes from wherever the heck it feels like. In 'Into the Forest I go' and 'What's past is prologue' the torpedoes seemed to be coming out of random spots on the hull.
It's almost becoming a running joke at this point.
Variety is the spice of life.
Indeed and fully support Discovery's choice to fire torpedoes for wherever it wants whatever, i'm not discovery's dad.
I actually think they should make it a running joke,
It confuses the Hell out of the enemy. They'll never know what spot Disco's blasts will come from next. They'll just have to destroy the whole ship... if they can catch it!
Too bad they didn't take Discovery to fight Khan in the Reliant. He wouldn't know exactly where to hit them.
Considering TOS and its movies showed torpedoes being manually loaded, I think Discovery just has a group of enslaved torpedo crew solely to shoot torpedoes out of any space in the hull. Shortly afterwards, they revolted and in the future they weren't used and instead automated torpedoes were shot out of preconfigured locations.
