I’ve only just noticed that Season 3 reverted to TNG colour-coding. That’s cool.
a BTS thing on the Enterprise bride in Season 2. There's Japanese subtitles. I guess this might have been ripped from the Blu-Ray?
Hi, so desu.
It's a thing of beauty. It blows the rabid belief in some quarters that the present producers 'don't care' into a hat. It's funny, I'm sure I heard the Enterprise bridge was a redress of the Discovery one, but clearly not. Maybe I'm misremembering and it's the corridors that got redecorated?
Most notable thing for me is how infectious Anson Mount's enthusiasm is. He's clearly having a ball and I think he's going to bring a lot of positive energy into Strange New Worlds.
I don't blame Alex Kurtzman for moving Disco out of the pre-TOS era (I guess they got tired of listening to the canon fanatics squawking about "This violates the continuity established in season three, episode nine of ... ").
Now the haters are complaining that Kurtzman's jump to the 32nd century is itself disrespecting canon ("He hates Trek! Why can't he work within established canon?")
There's no pleasing some people.
I can't wait for them to pore over "Strange New Worlds" ("Why couldn't they get Jeffrey Hunter?" Aside from the fact he's DEAD ... )
Can I say this out loud?
SOME hardcore fans are arseholes
Really some people need to calm the fuck down, it's just a TV show
I watch Star Trek to be entertained. Is it ever perfect? No. But it gets pretty close sometimes. The people who see it as a universe that has to remain perfectly consistent? Well, if that’s how they get their enjoyment that’s their choice. But I’m honestly not sure how they got through the Klingon change in TMP with that need for consistency.
It's not worth raising one's blood pressure over ("This, this, this, and this ... that's different from what was featured on Discovery!")
TPTB are doing it on purpose (the Picard forum is currently doing a frame-by-frame analysis/dissection of the S2 teaser trailer).
They know we're here (Last season, Jeri Ryan publicly called out one of our threads! )
Xanax works wonders!
This has me intrigued, what did Jeri Ryan say?
She talked about how we were obsessing over "Who is (Seven) crying over?"
We had a thread speculating about Icheb's death. The only way she could've known that was if she had seen THAT thread!
She knows who we are
I mean, twitter probably was as well and facebook, or any number of other communities
We really aren't. There hasn't been any screencaps posted in several days lol. Most of it is just speculation now.
Business as usual ...
Yeah, it's really just one screencap. The Q one.
OK come at me...... This is how I feel about Calypso
I love Star Trek Discovery, I've loved all 3 seasons despite some of the eye rolling stuff they do.
I loved all of the short treks but why can't things like Calypso be their own thing?
Sorry guys why does everyone want so badly for Calypso to tie into everything else? Why the hell can't it be its own thing?
That's how I feel. Sorry had to vent.

Because Marvel. It's the same reason why we have to know canon status of every production output. We cannot think for ourselves or be entertained by the merits. It has to all connect and be canon to be enjoyable.
And this hyper-obsessiveness with canon is big enough that the production team finds it important enough to comment on.
Meh to teh cannon.
Despite what most Trek fans think, canon does not mean continuity. Canon just means CBS says it's canon. Continuity means it's within the same "universe" more or less.
But really, something can be within continuity without in any way being referential to what came before. Like, they could come out with a Trek series set between TOS and TNG which (other than the general background of the Federation and established alien races) references absolutely no known individuals or events which happened in TOS, Enterprise, or Discovery. Indeed, to be within continuity, you mostly have to not conflict with what came before - not actively build on it.
As I've said in the past, I think that fundamentally the desire to make things "epic" and self-referential directly cuts against efforts to make a fictional universe seem huge in scope. If there are thousands of inhabited worlds, and trillions of individuals, and we keep seeing the same few dozen individuals...do the rest even matter?
