That's how I felt at the end of Discovery Season One.
Here's a novel idea
Why not just restrict canon to Star Trek (TOS)
Canon should begin at "The Cage" and end at "Turnabout Intruder"
Everything else after is just dressing, and the more you add, the more complicated it gets.
Every other series has the right to quote canon in their own time period, or even universe
But Prime Canon should begin and end with James T Kirk and crew
Sits back and awaits flak. . . . .
And yet here you are, on a daily basis, reliving the experience.
I think Mikey likes it.
Nah... a true Star Trek fan will accept only "The Cage" and captain Pike as canon, nothing of that "reimagined" stuff with glamourboy Kirk and such.
This isn't the Discovery forum though...
For someone who hates Discovery you sure love talking about it!
Why do you care so much?
Just move on.
The thread is about Canon. How can you discuss Canon without talking about the elephant in the room?
No one has brought up TOS though
I'm willing to end it before "Turnabout Intruder."
That's a shame, I was hoping for Lenore Karidian to make a return and redeem herself
I believe that's a transcription error, and it was actually the NCC-57-D. The novelization calls it the Timewinds, so U.S.S. Timewinds it is.
Out of curiosity, I googled every permutation of this "novelization" and got nothing. Me thinks I'm being practiced upon.
Pretty much my take, and I even preclude TMP as well.
TOS canon should begin and end with TOS, but not the "Cage", rather, its manifestation in the "Menagerie".
Yeah, I can reach that
From a post on this very board, ten years ago:
"In the Forbidden Planet novelization, the C-57-D is called the Timewinds.
"Canon rules may be different in the Forbidden Planet universe, so perhaps we could consider that a canonical name -- one that never came up in the film."
One would have to consult the actual novelization by Philip MacDonald to verify this for sure, but apparently this is not a new claim. Don't think you're being pranked.
Thanks for info. The C-57D was a cool ship.
That's how I felt reading shit like this.
Mind you, I've never actually read the novelization. But a google search on "Forbidden Planet Timewinds" turned up an old Trekbbs thread from 2009!
Now I'm tempted to read the novelization someday.
