    The show is in the bag in my opinion.

    The Titan legacy before this year consisted of mentions of the NCC-80102 in NEM more than 20 years ago, one appearance in LD and that's about it. Nothing's been dishonored or ruined.

    I feel like people are hanging their hat on the "Titan legacy" hook because they want to seem like their opinion is more elevated than "the titan design wasn't good enough to be the Enterprise"

    No, you're not listening. He made the statement after the show ended. So it's a suspect statement. We don't know if that was what he was planning all this time; that's just what he's saying after the fact. Just like how Braga stated years after the fact that FutureGuy was supposed to be Archer. He clearly didn't think that when ENT was on the air.

    There's a possibility that the ship was going to be renamed the USS Picard, but at the last minute someone might have made a change.

    Hell, Captain Braxton from VOY has more of a legacy than the Titan.

    Like it or not, intended or otherwise - the Titan / Titan-A / constitution II, III / Enterprise / ‘Refit’ / renamed / retro-styled / Shangri-La’d, whatever-it-is-amacation - is incredibly convoluted from a writing POV - hence why it’s a source of great discussion.

    :beer:

    Ps: not a criticism of the design itself, which I really like - just the backstory given.

    Well.. to those of us that have read the Titan book series for over a decade, then YES.. it has a legacy,

    Even in trek cannon, Riker was its captain for over a decade doing things that granted the next ship an A .. Just because you don't see a legacy, doesn't mean there isn't one.

    I feel like any feelings of legacy went out the window when the trailer mentioned the name Titan and then showed the Neo-Connie instead of the Luna. Then we all spent weeks and weeks deciphering and debating what it meant for a ship to be a refit and how this never really felt like Riker's Titan.

    One estimate says the human eye has a resolution of 576 megapixels:

    "human eye has only about 6 million “cones” which see color" - see above, estimated 576 megapixels
    "focus area’s" and "milometers" :crazy:

    No he wasn't. That was just in the novels. Which aren't canon.

    Canon has not said how long he served as captain on the Titan.

    In canon we know he's Captain from 2379 until at least 2382. By the time his son Thad was diagnosed with his terminal illness he'd already resigned his commission and moved with his family to Nepenthe.

    Because then if Star Trek: Legacy got made, they wouldn't be able to use the Titan-A CGI model that's already been built and paid for.

    Nonsense! Riker's Titan made two appearances on Lower Decks! ;)

    Actually, Nemesis never revealed the Titan's registry number. That was from the novels. We knew nothing about the ship other than its name.

    I know that. I was using the registry as shorthand. We all know that's Riker's Titan. Plus it saved me having to type the ship's name all over again.

    I don’t think Legacy will happen, to be honest. Considering we’re in the era of streaming compression and how expensive shooting in LA is, it seems unlikely to happen.

    yeah an icing made of fondant...
