    Given the current raft of acting talent on hand thanks to his "Dark Universe" franchise, if Tom Cruise doesn't walk onto the bridge of a USS Whatever, painted purple with gills and breathing apparatus, I'm boycotting this show!

    Hugo - or Russell Crowe covered in fur, I'm easy

    That's downright shocking. They should have been closer to 10 or 11 at this point.

    But it does give some weight to the idea that all the footage in the trailer is from the first episode. That part is somewhat encouraging in that there could be a lot more stuff to see, including the actual Discovery bridge.

    I'm glad they're not hurrying. Why try to meet some arbitrary release date when you can just make sure the show is as good as it can be?

    Not if they're working on quality as opposed to just getting episodes in the can.

    We were told by Ted Sullivan they were on episode 6. So I'm wondering when this interview took place.

    Tom Cruise's gills are already purple. He's a natural.

    Quite a few Hollywood actors are fans of Star Trek, and they would like a role on the newest Trek series. Star...

    They're not releasing every episode at once, they're doing it once a week, so not every episode needs to be finished when the show starts.

    The odd guest might be okay, so long as that person is a good fit for a character they needed to create anyway. If they start popping up every episode, or creating characters just so a cameo can be shoehorned in, it might start to look gimmicky and detract from the stories.

    While this is cool is it really any different from the past? Whoopie Goldberg was a fan and you had Mick Fleetwood in a ep and Iggy Pop and I think Robin Williams wanted to do a ep. If they do get Shatner do you think he might finally get a chance to play Chief after all these years?:)

    I think in the Berman era it wasn't really a cachet show to be on, now it is and it's attracted some current big name stars.

    In fact, having Whoopi reprising her role as Guinan wouldn't be that far-fetched.

    As stated, I think it's actually good they're only on episode 5 or 6. Let them take their time and develop a good show.

    Yay? I'm far more interested in good stories rather than stunt casting.
