    That's what I read as well. The reason they 'switched' was that to to the "Bugs" the way they wanted would have required VERY expensive (at the time) CGI - so extra in Pancake makeup and foam rubber "cybernetic armor" were cheaper. :)

    By the end of Season 2 Spock will have a higher death count than the original Red Dawn.

    I thought he had heard rumors about the black badges, but not Section 31. I'd have to watch again to be sure.

    Could be, the PU Lorca could still be alive as well.

    For me its got Preserver or First Federation written all over it.

    Ideally it would be best if they are able to draw a line under it all when they are ready to go forward with more spinoff series like a Pike/Enterprise show, especially as Pike has been so well received, many would also like to see more of Number One, a younger Spock and maybe even a Younger Kirk.

    I don't know but I hear he's going to stay missing until he doesn't hear the sounds made by the Red Angels no more. ;)

    Yep. Her full name and title is Tan Sri Dato' Seri Michelle Yeoh Choo-Kheng, one of only 75 people in the world to have received those titles by the government of Malaysia. She can walk into any studio in Asia and name her price, she absolutely would not be involved in anything she isn't 100% enthusiastic about.

    Incidentally I really like that she uses a Malaysian accent on the show, I used to work for a Malaysian company and made a few friends over there, it's a little underrepresented in popular culture.

    edit: somehow I didn't notice this thread went on for 65 pages and I'm really, really late to the party

    I really, really, really have to re-watch Tomorrow Never Dies at some point. Just for Michelle Yeoh. I'm pretty sure the last time I watched it, Bush was President.
