    Certain designs are. 1st season Space 1999 still looks futuristic as does 2001, and the likes of Logan's Run and Outland. On the other hand, most 80s and 90s stuff, not so much. It's kind of nice, that I'm getting an Outland/Wrath of Khan/ 2010 with updates feel that do from Disco and JLPD.

    By generic sci-fi I meant nothing that really screams Star Trek to me, let alone mid 23rd century that’s contemporary with early TOS. It would’ve been so easy to update TOS without making it something totally different that it’s unrecognizable. But that’s just my opinion.

    To me, it looks as 'Star Trek' as the sets in TMP and WOK did, which are as close to TOS as DISCO is but less hotel Lobby/hallway or the plywood that TOS did. That's what happens when you have money to spend on sets.

    A truly “your mileage may very” situation.

    Maybe so, but it's the designs that still seem futuristic that stick with me. Those that are glued to their era I find less impressive.

    You do know the exact same sets (with key location exceptions..bridge, sickbay etc) were used from TMP through to Generations? Heck, some bits are still on Voyager too.

    Not sure who this is from, but I picked it up from Reddit.

    Looks like it's in Ten Forward on the Ent-D. Given we see Picard waking up at the end, it's definitely a flashback, but it looks like we may at least this Ent-D set recreated. Here's hoping for a bridge!

    The "I didn't want the game to end" quote is the same as in the trailer where Data is painting. Sounds like a repeated motif. Blue skies again as well (different version to the full Blue Skies trailer).

    Ah ha. I missed the show this week. And I couldn't find it posted elsewhere in the forum.

    I guess it was a CGI set and only the table was real, though

    People still spend time slaving over digital recreations. It's still a skill and and art.

    Seems that the first three episodes have confirmed names now and "REMEMBRANCE" is correct for the first.

    #2 - "Maps & Legends"

    #3 - "The End is the Beginning"

    :cool:

    "The End is the Beginning" is so cliché, it hurts.

    but it's only episode titles, I can live with it

    It's Star Trek ... 'cliche' is a given.

    ...The only thing we're left wondering is whether PIC will finally manage to yank the forty-character-not-counting-spaces record on title length away from TOS. Sorta looking forward to that.

    I don't expect episode titles to appear on screen - despite the ominous "Children of Mars" text on the Short Trek
