    Two hundred years from now I'm thinking that Vehicle Automation will be an everyday thing and most likely not a cause for consternation for anybody but the young lady that missed her ride.

    Anyone notice the two shots of Mars are very different? I think the first one with the shipyard is actually Vulcan.

    If Ford can bring back the Mustang then Starfleet can go retro on any ship it chooses...

    By gum that is a Kelvinverse Enterprise! Did they throw in R2D2 and a trout as well?

    Why would it be Vulcan?

    It's the only planet I could think of that is somewhat similar that was used in Discovery. I will need to check.

    That doesn't make it Vulcan.

    Could be the same asset. I'm on Netflix now to see.

    I think someone took some artistic liberties with the screen shot. It wasn't in the actual short.

    There are only two red planets in the universe. It's clearly the one that isn't the focus of the short.

    An automated shuttle driver would probably be a whole lot safer than some of the bus drivers I've dealt with. Unless they go "rogue" or insane, but that happens to real-life people too. Probably far more often.

    I know there's more. but I couldn't think of another one in Discovery.
    My point is that wasn't Mars in that shot. The last one was though.

    "My mother works at the Utopia Planitia Shipyards on Mars" <cuts to establishing shot of Vulcan?>

    You know what I mean. They used another red planet as Mars. I mean they reused everything else. That whole shot was just bad.

    It's what ever planet they need it to be. Same as all the other "planets" seen in Star Trek since the Sixties.

    Is it possible for us to get out of hand if we were never stable to begin with to make the shift. One does not start crazy and become more crazy.:)

    Shuttle operator's eyes flash red. "I am deactivating inertial dampers. Full impulse engaged."
