    In three weeks (July 29th) we'll be getting the premiere of STC's Ep. 9 "What Ships Are For." Note that Indiegogo backers will be getting an advance viewing a day earlier.

    Interesting title. I'm certainly curious as to what this could be about given the title. We know we should finally be seeing STC's planet set. We know some of the guest cast including John de Lance and Anne Lockhart although we don't know what roles they will be playing.

    Despite criticisms I find myself far more interested to see the next STC episode(s) than seeing Discovery, but I speak only for myself here.


    Thoughts anyone? Curiosity? Anticipation? Indifference? Wish lists?


    (I'm including a poll early to simplfy not having to start a whole other thread in three weeks time)

    Definitely intrigued, interested and looking forward to it! On the minus side, it will mean we'll be coming closer to STC 's end.

    Yeah, I find myself wishing they could have done those two extra episodes.

    Looking forward to seeing Mark Rolston and Lex Lang the most, especially if Rolston plays the bad guy and is as creepy as I remember him in the past...Lex Lang is a pretty good voice actor...Bracing myself ...:)

    I'm looking forward to watching this episode soon. I've liked all their other shows I've watched the last few years.

    I'd not heard anything about who was directing the finale, but their main Facebook page announced he's directing What Ships Are For a couple weeks ago, IIRC.
