    Honestly the live action lower decks uniforms look pretty damn good. They seem to be a better fit than some of the others we’ve seen in recent shows.

    Agreed. I don't know what that would change.

    I cede my "true fan" creds to no one and I think it looks a hoot!

    Are you gatekeeping people you consider gatekeepers?

    Don't forget that T'Pring already has Stonn lurking at her side.
    She's apparently not completely monogamous either.

    Everything after 2005 is Trek made by different producers. That's it.

    No. It's all the same universe and that's all there is to it.

    Star Trek: Lower Decks is a sitcom set in the Star Trek Universe, not a parody of Star Trek.

    Yep. Though I will say that I think Jack Quaid does look like he's in his early 30s, whereas Boimler is supposed to be in his early-to-mid 20s. But he's also so wonderful that I can suspend disbelief.

    (Tawny Newsome, meanwhile, even though she's 40, is one of those people who manages to look like she's 10-15 years younger than her actual age. Also, Mariner is apparently in her early-to-mid 30s anyway.)

    I love the Spock/Chapel stuff. So I kinda love that it looks like they are taking it a step further. ;)

    Speculation time: If you look at the other trailers, we see Spock and Christine together in what looks like an airlock as the ship is exploding around them, and in other sequences we see what looks like the two of them in space suits getting blown out an airlock, then looking from space as the Enterprise explodes. So I suspect that the episode where Spock and Christine finally kiss is going to be from that same episode, and it's going to end with the reveal that it was all a dream/hallucination/induced vision/alternate timeline, or some other form of reset button. I suspect it will end with Christine returning to real life, being disappointed that she's not with Spock. If I were writing it, the twist ending would be that she's in a bar/longue/mess hall and then meets Roger Korby.

    I'm not bothered by it not completely matching the animated version, but I will say that I think the shoulder borders go too far down for my tastes. ;)

    A LITTLE bit? That was, what? 70% of her character? She was McCoy's head nurse and she mooned over Spock from time to time. Notably in The Naked Time, Amok Time, and of course, Mudd's Passion.

    It’s not the same universe and that’s all there is to it. I can enjoy both universes. Lower Decks to regular Trek is like Hot Shots to Top Gun.

    so Ortegas is a war veteran. I assume the klingon war.

    Hmmm. I hope SNW's handling of this is very careful, because this costume design, particularly in conjunction with the beard and mustache, is really evocative of Yellow Peril imagery and stereotypes of Mongolians and Asians in general. We don't know enough to know that this is going to be problematic, but it would be really easy for it to veer into anti-Asian coding unintentionally.
