    We haven't seen Worf's chiropractic skills in action since The Changing Face of Evil.

    Just sayin'.

    Yeah, he didn't really do a lot of tumbling, bending and jumping in the shipboard battle with the Reman boarding party in NEM.

    I believe RMB mentioned it on his Twitter. (Not saying this makes it credible but it does seem like as if he has really seen season 3, or at least some version of it.)

    Trek Central has a new interview with Terry Matalas. Beware of season 3 spoilers, obviously.

    only 15 minutes in but I like what he's saying about the music. The TNG theme isn't just plastered all over the soundtrack, it's used when it's earned. Also we'll hear a bit of Horner's Klingon theme.

    From that video, it looks like we are kinda-sorta going to hear about the fate of the Enterprise-E, but it’ll be something that could in theory be expanded on by a novel or something in the future.

    and Worf being captain of the Enterprise-E will be alluded to.

    Horner had a Klingon theme? Or did you mean Goldsmith's, from TMP?

    It’s probably the theme that plays when the Grissom is destroyed and various other Klingon moments in TSFS.

    To me it always sounded like Khan’s theme with the notes slightly re-ordered.

    And did he say we'll know it by the end...? So the E reveal, whatever it is, will be at the end? :D

    Jerry Goldsmith's musical scores are timeless. But I think James Horner's TWOK and TSFS themes sound very '80s space opera. I'm sure they'll make it work, but I hope it sounds more 2023 than 1983.

    Yep, source on Stashwick's character's name is RMB, who is now saying he's seen the season for a third time.

    Meanwhile, the WGA has released their December Star Trek Writer's Panel on YouTube.

    Terry Matalas and Christopher Derrick (who was a staff writer on seasons 2 and 3) participate. Just watch Terry's face when executive interference and getting notes comes up, and he talks about how different regimes greatly impacted what made it to the screen. One potential season 3 spoiler via an idea they didn't get to include (the Vulcan psychiatric planet).

    Some really cool interplay between Matalas and Brannon Braga as well.

    That’s not really new, Matalas has hinted at “interference from the studio” (or words to that effect) regarding PIC’s second season on a few occasions, most notable example being how the studio seems to have insisted that the Trek timeline should be our timeline regardless of the obvious discrepancies that previous canon established. He can’t be too open and specific of course tho - he’s still under contract, his tune regarding season 3 right now is often (and pretty much HAS to be) “Paramount has been great”.

    However, I expect a lot more candid interviews at some point in the future. Might take a while, but it’s gonna happen.
