    I don’t think you imagined it, actually. I remember reading about the same thing. I believe the deck containing the EV suits that Spock entered for his TMP space walk had wall panels that were painted a light sky blue. The lighting was such, however, that it wasn’t clearly visible and it looked like the plain engineering level brushed metal. Other decks were supposed to be painted other colors but we never got a chance to see them. I’m sure there’s an article buried somewhere on MA or Ex Astris that talks about it. Just to lazy today to look it up. Long story short, I believe you’re right - that was the plan at one time.

    They see me driving my vehicle
    They have illogical feelings of hate and envy
    Patrol craft are trying to catch me with Nurse Chapel and illicit substances

    Trying to catch me high and flirting
    Trying to catch me high and flirting
    Trying to catch me high and flirting
    Trying to catch me high and flirting

    My lute is so loud
    I'm swinging between lanes
    They are hoping that they are going to catch me running amok

    Trying to catch me high and flirting
    Trying to catch me high and flirting
    Trying to catch us high and flirting
    Trying to catch us high and flirting

    Waving to see if they will leave me be
    I'm green-tinted, and it is not easy to be green
    When you see me ride by, they can see my IDIC medallion gleam
    I appear on the deck and the TV screen

    And I am riding with a new companion, and she says, "Loosen up"
    Peer into my bridge scope and move the controller
    I have an extra energy clip in my phaser holster
    Nerve pinch an attacker into a coma

    So we're down to the final three episodes of the season. this season looks to be a M'Benga centric episode so What do you think we'll see in the final two? What do you guys wanna see in the final two episodes of the Season and do you think they'll throw us a curve ball and show us Paul Wesley as James Kirk at the final scene of the season finale? if not what kind of cliffhanger do you wanna see?

    Just realized Anson Mount read a great Karl Edward Wagner story called, 'Where the Summer Ends' for PseudoPod in 2019. Didn't clue to the connection when listening last year.

    Things in the trailers that we haven't seen yet:

    • The wreckage of a crashed Constitution-class starship;
    • A small, presumably infant or child version of a reptilian species, possibly a Gorn;
    • Odd, bat-eared aliens who appear to be facing off against an Enterprise landing or security party, where Uhura is called upon by La'an to pinch-hit for the Universal Translator ("That's not how linguistics works!").

    What else?

    Reminds me of something I've been thinking. Uhura is basically Hoshi. Her ability with a number of Earth languages that would leave the rest of us hiding in a dark corner crying, allows her to intuitively see patterns in alien languages that 99.999% of us would be oblivious to. I've actually met someone like her and it blew my mind. Makes sense to present her this way (as it did Hoshi) even though we really didn't see this in TOS.

    I approve of the SNW Uhura, almost as much as I adored the TOS Uhura.

    BTW I worked for years as an ESL tutor and that's how I met the person I referred to.

    I think that's also on the crashed constitution.

    Are we guessing that the crashed starship somehow involves Kirk yet?

    I'm guessing not since the actor playing younger Kirk is in scenes shot for Season 2. It might be the Farragut so Sam Kirk could mention that the crashed starship was his younger brother's last known posting and we get a "James Kirk" or "Jim Kirk" reference but my guess is we don't see anything of Lieutenant Kirk until next season.

    For UK viewers, Paramount+ is available as a subscription service from tomorrow, 22 June. However, if you subscribe to Sky Cinema, you will get all Paramount+ content bundled in from tomorrow including SNW and Halo. Great news for me as I already have a Sky Cinema subscription and was doubtful about paying for a Paramount+ one as well. As I'm currently getting Sky Cinema discounted for six months at £4.99 per month and Paramount+ will be £6.99 per month, it's really a double win.

    Yes, I've speculated as such on that matter.

    Heh ... Doesn't your answer imply that Yes, it "somehow involves" James Kirk?
    (which is what I asked) :p

    Thanks, I must have missed that particular post of yours. :techman:
