Star Trek-Season Zero?
Star Trek: First Day at Camp - er - First Year of Mission
To Boldly Go, Part 2 has been submitted for The People's Telly Award. Voting is now open and there's a link on the STC FB and Twitter sites for those who are interested.
I know I'm late to the party, but I'm finally watching the last few episodes of STC. While I find "To Boldly Go" to be quite fun so far, I feel that it calls back too much to previous elements and events of TOS in a way that an actual episode wouldn't have, if there had actually been a fourth season. But in this way it actually feels very much like reading one of the older Pocket Books TOS novels. YMMV.
I would compare the callbacks in this to, say, All Good Things. Which I'm sure was the intent.
The Constellation was damaged by something which was extraordinary and possibly from another Galaxy. The Intrepid was again perished by a phenomena which was out of the Starship Class' reaches, and The Ultimate Computer those ships were engineered for a simulation and not ready for a full on attack. But from what I'd seen and understand of these spacecrafts including the Defiant could take a pounding because they're meant for deep space exploration where the crew needed to handle their business on their own. TOS capitalized on that make up.
The Ultimate Computer showed that Constitution class ships could not withstand phasers on full power from one of their own. In the remastered version, we see one of the ships glowing blue when hit implying that even though the hull didn't look damaged, the interior was flooded with phaser energy, killing everyone.
For all we know, the energy warped every bulkhead and plate on the ship, rendering the ship totally useless.
TNG, a Miranda class can be obliterated by one torpedo. DSC, even a Crossfield can be taken out entirely by two torpedoes.
Starships in the Prime universe are fragile as eggs once their shields go down, at least the 23rd century ones.
As we know Spock has been aboard under Pike for years by this point, it might work better to have Kirk being the new captain bringing his own command crew along, and finding Spock and maybe Dehner already in residence.
