    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.

    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.

    Go ahead, caller. I'm listening...
    Or perhaps it uses a force field that can be made opaque, like @Hoity Toity mentioned about Sickbay?
