    You're right - why would a naming convention continue for 1000+ years...oh wait, you're WRONG:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surname

    One small excert as an example:

    ***
    So yeah, given 4000 years of using surnames, why would it be abandoned in another 1300? ;)

    (Wow - people will botch about anything to demean this show.)

    In Greece, names from the non-christian classical antiquity are very common in present day, at least 2500 years later, like Athena, Alexander, Pericles, Alkinoos, Aphrodite, Phillip, Daphne, Demosthenes, Aspasia and many many more. So I don't see any problem with Cleveland existing far into the future.
    Maybe there's a new fad naming your kids with names from 1000 years ago, or he's named after the city of his earliest known ancestors, or a human colony from Earth refugees, or his parents' favorite US president or 100s of other reasons why Cleveland persists into the 3rd millennium.

    He might be named after the capital of the new Federation empire, New Cleveland.

    Questions on uniforms, I thought the color uniforms were new uniforms according to Pike in the Season 2 premiere. If Spock is an ensign here, shouldn't the uniforms be different? Maybe close to The Cage's uniforms?

    They were already made and they weren’t going to create new ones for a couple of shorts.

    How dare anyone have an opinion on anything?!

    The name doesn’t mean the third season will be good or bad, just that it is very generic. Almost something that would be a placeholder than a serious name.

    I prefer generic to highly specific.

    Stand by it - Seriously? To say either the season will suck, or the writing staff sucks because 1000+ years later, they still use familiy naming conventions in use for thousands of years previously? :rofl:

    (Also, I guess by your comment you take umbridge with my expression an opinion about someone else's opinion? - Interesting.)

    I haven't been on here much today. I've been busy with something else near and dear to me. I see I didn't miss anything. Just to mess with people, I hope they meet Hazel in the future. Delphis would be nice too.

    That’s an odd definition of generic.

    In all my life, I've never personally known anyone named Cleveland.

    "Generic" is Bob, Pat, Steve, Charlie... but as long as we have Klaatu, that's "alien". Even though I'm going to go out on a craaaaazy limb and say Cleveland is probably Human.

    They could have chosen a non English sounding name though. Most of the human main characters have an English name already and I just think it is unrealistic. The native English speaking population only makes up about 5 % of the world population right now. So why not something like Jakub Wang? Common Polish given name and common Chinese family name. I kind of like the idea that names from different current Earth countries are getting mixed. So far in the future a lot of current cultural things should be a big jumble.

    Yep, sounds like a Bad Robot, Kurtzman style script. Just add some explosions, make it flashy and have some corridor heart to hearts, and bickering between the crew.. Then the proper modern trek formula is good to go! No real depth or explanation to a story-line. Who cares. This is about fun, and 25% licensing differences anyways.

    I despise anything Kurtzman touches. He is the worst producer and writer I have ever seen. Even worse then JJ (Plagiarizer and repackage) Abrams.

    I know we are just getting started with this era of Trek, and I'm already wishing it was over.
    Sorry, just how I feel. I mean, the majority of the characters in STD are unlikeable to me anyhow.

    I could get behind, and maybe support a Pike Enterprise series, if someone else took the helm and made it more like that traditional formula, but I can't say I like this new Bad Robot Carnival "Prime" universe.. I still prefer the Alpha Timeline.
    I cannot stand the Kelvin universe.

    Modern trek.. Pffffffftttt!! yep, follows the downfall of a lot of modern shows. halved in their communities, and each side at each others throats over stupid things, and mostly SUPERFICIAL reasons.

    Picard has the potential to be good.. But STD. I left midway into Season 2, and litterally FORCED myself to watch Season 1. 2 was indeed better, but the whole sorry excuse of a storyline, the red angels, and the whole mess with S31 was just annoying. I would have preferred getting to see stories where the Federation or Discovery meet super powerful beings, like in classic Trek, or something more of a discover type plot.. like it's name sake. A less annoying know it all beside Burnham, who always, always contradicts orders because she is supposedly smarter then anyone else.
    smug and pretentious characters wear on the audience overtime. she does not become more likeable at all.

    There's just so much I can't like about Discovery, that what I do like is just an after thought, and not the real substance or meat of the series that draws me back.

    When I think of ST, I am not thinking about the explosions, or the ships as much as the characters, and STD characters are just like that crew of people you work with. you have to be there, but gosh if you were off, none of them would ever hear from you.. until you HAD to come back... dreading the next visit the whole time.

    wait, I know I left for a couple of months...new job and what not, but...this shennanigan level tin foil 'your prime timeline is not my prime timeline' nonsense is still going on?

    I mean, c'mon, even some of the most misogynistic Whovians by now almost calmed down about the new Doctor, surely we as a fandom can restore sanity a little bit faster than that.
