Even wars rely as much on information gathering as on firepower...
Nah. That was set later on and people love that design.
Correct — but as any more direct answer relevant to this book takes us into spoiler-land, all I can say is “all will be revealed.”
But surely there was at least a percentage of TV show purist-fans at the time who were critical of the Probert redesign, similar to the fans who objected to the "new" ridged Klingon-makeup, etc. We pretty much see this every time a new iteration of Trek appears.
I was just reading the back cover. That ancient battle in a nebula reminds me of the plot of Nathan Archer’s “Ragnorak” and how Voyager came across another ancient battle in a nebula in that book.
Interesting -- first I've seen of it. There's nothing new under the sun!
Sure. But if you're in a war, having a gun handy ain't the worst idea ever.
(Mackey's First Law of Land Warfare: You can never have too much ammunition. Or toilet paper.)
But if you're on a book cover and two other characters already have guns, it'd add some variety to hold something else.
I can't say I directly requested phasers for specific characters who appeared, but I do agree with the choice.
(This will be a much easier discussion to engage in a couple of months from now.)
Says who? Who are these "people"? First off, as Leto_II said, lots of people bitched and moaned about the TMP design in 1979, trust me. And if I had to choose between the 1979 Enterprise and the 2019 Enterprise, I'd choose the 2019 every day and twice on Sunday.
Too long before it is releasef.
A friend, who was a member of the William Shatner Fellowship of Fans, about the preview screening we had for "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan":
"Who is that curly-haired upstart who dares to call himself Kirk's son?"
Same friend, after meeting Merritt Butrick on the set of "Star Trek III: The Search for Spock", on the day Saavik and David opened Spock's photon tube coffin:
"Omigod, he's dreamy!!!!!!!"
I am very much looking forward to "The Enterprise War". Pike, Spock and Number One, and the actors who were cast, were such highlights to an already great DSC crew!
