    He strikes me as a mix between McKay, Ronan, and that honest alien Wesley encountered.

    Hemmer is McCoy if he were alien. Grouchy but perpetually proud of his hard-earned skills. He'll likely mouth off to most of the other cast members.

    In modern Trek, one can swear while violating G.O. 1, though!

    That's my take on him so far too. I can't imagine him just taking a "more power" order without a snide comment.

    "Damnit, Chris, I'm THE engineer and you'll get more power when its damn good and ready!"

    Look how he responds to Spock's comment about how his non-visual senses compensate. He almost mocks Spock's word and then ones it better. "They are superior."

    Maybe Spock learned how to act smugly superior from Hemmer? ;)

    Either that or T'Pring.

    A little background on the costume creation:

    Also the costume designer seems to think the show takes place in 2256?

    That's funny considering the costume designer is the same person who previously stated 2259 before the show started.

    *Sigh*
    "The Vulcan Hello" and "The Battle of the Binary Stars" were explicitly set in May 2256.
    "Conscience is for Kings" was six months after that.
    DISCO season 1 extended well into 2257 due to a 9-10 month time jump returning from the Mirror Universe.
    DISCO season 2 probably bridged 2257&58.
    By that reckoning, SNW should be ca. 2259 (and 2258 at the earliest).

    Here's a thought to contemplate on the opening episode:

    Was Spock's interaction with T'Pring some kind of dream or perhaps a VR fantasy?

    Because there is no other way to explain how he goes from 'Vulcan' to the Enterprise in the 6 hours between Pike's conversation with April and the ship getting underway.

    Some sort of dream sequence or holodeck style fantasy would also, at least, preserve canon regarding the two.

    Speed and need of the plot. Don't overthink it.

    Still trying to figure out the canon status of T'Pring.

    Huh? She's in "Amok Time" and now "Strange New Worlds". What's the issue?

    The fact that in Amok Time, Spock was staring at a picture of her as a child and apparently hadn't seen her since then.

    Pretty much this
    Could be he was flipping through his photo album and that was the picture he was on when the door bell rang.
