    9 to 10 years from now we'll see our first full 23rd century Holodeck in the TAS episode, "The Practical Joker". :)

    Derived perhaps from the Shore Leave planet...

    The planet in Shore Leave didn't use holography in any way. They created various physical plants and used Androids to recreate people and animals.

    Quite correct. My memory failed me here.

    I think the Xyrillians from "Unexpected(ENT)" are the origin of Federation holodeck technology. That episode strongly hints that the Xyrillian ship encountered was the beginning of what became TNG-style holotechnology.

    Enterprise loved to screw up with established chronology. :)

    I think I understand it this way: Spock was "sending" TO Hemmer. IIRC, Vulcans are touch-telepaths (except the few times in TOS that he wasn't for sake of plot,) so Spock can't "receive" FROM Hemmer unless touching. Line of sight is irrelevant.

    I think.

    Well, that's what I had suggested in threads for the other series. Basically, do several 2-3 part stories per season. Character arcs can be a season long or longer, but plot arcs limited in length. Although, I'm totally fine with SNW's more episodic approach.

    After the canon defying first episode with Spock and T'Pring almost hitting it off, a new doctor instead of dr Boyce just because and Chapel in the crew, I couldn't finish the second episode of this garbage. The Fakeprise with its bright, white corridors are annoying as it is and the miscast actress for Uhura aside, the Prime Directive was introduced in the first episode but now they was about to break it before they realized what the comet really was.

    I do like Anson Mount as Pike and the new Spock is good, but I decided to put on some real Star Trek instead.

    These days Nichols isn't going to be able to make a cameo, but I fully expect to see her in a family photo.

    OK, I stand corrected. But I did say primarily, not exclusively.

    It's ten years earlier. Think about it.
    Uhura is perfect.
    The Prime Directive is older than the first episode. Breaking it is what Trek captains call a typical Tuesday.
