    Hell, they still could've done this with the Enterprise-E. Nemesis was in many ways a retread of WoK for me, so why not swipe from another previous Trek movie?

    Well, we didn't get 3 movies in those 5 years.

    Would it? Nemesis was horrible...

    So was Generations. So if we're gonna have the Ent-D go out, better to go out like a champ than by going out by getting destroyed by an outdated Bird of Prey.

    To be fair, 101 of those in your 1st group were made between 1966 & 1974, 8 years of the 1st generation. The other 615 were made between 1987 & 2004, 17 years of the 2nd generation. (Piggybacking on the 8 years of success of the TOS film franchise)

    However, to compare 5 year stretches between the 2nd & 3rd gens... between January 1993 to December 1997 Star Trek released 255 episodes with 3 different shows, actually airing on television in syndication, & not just a single company's content streaming service, & were also into production on the 3rd TNG theatrical film. That imho was as much or more of a content boom & commercial blitz as this current 5 year stretch has been

    You're probably right about which section of the past several decades really shows the uptick of Trek production. My fascination was the fact that the time between ENT and DIS is almost the same length as the time between TAS and TNG. And in those times, we got at least 3 movies but obviously no shows.

    I posted about this in another thread but why would Section 31 need stockpiles of nanites aboard their starships? Leland had a pile of them on hand that got out of control.. :razz:

    I mean did every ship in their fleet have them or just his, and why just his?

    Couldn't Control have just added it to ship invoices?

    Possibly but it's a bit of a sore point for me even though. It would imply that it had some kind of ulterior motive for doing such a thing, in the novels it's a bit more evil and does more planning ahead of the humans but it shows planning in the TV show version even before the squid probe upgrades it a bit. It was bad all along.

    I am getting a Trek tattoo band on my forearm, what do we think? It's supposed to be DS9 from the top but people keep saying its a flower.

    Totally DS9. But could be seen as a flower by a non-Trekkie.

    It looks more like the Yorkshire Rose than DS9 to me…

    *shrug*

    Mate, I have tattoos which people think are other things, but if I know what they are, I don’t care. These things are personal to the wearer. If you like it, that’s enough.

    FWIW, I do like the design.

    Jonathan Frakes said in an interview that he considers Discovery to be his current "home" Trek series. In other words, the one that he hasn't actually appeared in... yet. ;)
