It was Disco that had to shut down.
So did SNW
They didn't shut down:
"The good news is that no one else has tested positive and that production and filming have not been affected."
It sounds like they didn't have to shut down like DSC did.
They started filming in February and are only on Episode 2, that's... slow.
City of Toronto website says filming goes until September. So I guess that tracks.
Maybe the first episode is feature-length.
It'd be nice for a series premiere to once again be a two-hour event.
This has the potential to be my favourite Trek ever. I’m hoping it takes some of the brilliance of the Short Treks and some of the more episodic episodes from Discovery (like New Eden and Magic to make the Sanest Man Go Mad) and applies them with a Pike twist. It’s one that I’m trying to ignore because I know it’s far away, but it’s always there, nagging at me.
is that the official logo of the show, with “Star trek” under SNW and in a smaller font? Interesting.
Or they could be filming episodes out of order. That's proud Trek tradition going all the way back to TOS.
Might just be the production logo, isn't always final.
Akiva said they finished episode 1 early April.
We didn't get that for Picard because we already knew him, it was a 10 week show, and the premiere itself was enough of an event. Disco was the first new Trek in over a decade and had a lot to introduce us to.
As much as I'd like a 2 episode premiere, if we get that it will likely be spread over 2 weeks. I don't think it is needed though. We know most of the leads and we know the current state of the federation so we don't really need the time to set all of that up. There is no overarching theme either. I am thinking we will get a longer premier episode that is a touch over an hour which is about 20 or so minutes less than a traditional 2-parter.
75 minutes would be nice. That would be twelve minutes longer than the original, uncut "The Cage(TOS)."
It was that way in the 1990ies version of BH90210.
I'll never forget back in 1993, right before my Freshman Year of High School was about to start and my uncle -- I shit you not -- wanted to show me 90210 to show me what high school was like. (In his defense, he's from Iran and didn't know what American school was like.)
The eyeroll emoticon doesn't even do what my reaction was justice.
If you didn't go to school in an affluent So Cal community where everyone had sports cars and started high school in their 20s then you must have gone to the Saved by the Bell school.
RadioTimes spoke with Anson Mount recently. There's no direct quote involved, but the author of the article claims that Mount mentioned they're about halfway through shooting the first season.
I hope they stay both careful and lucky. Even though the careful part means it takes longer.
Anson Mount seems to agree with Kurtzman's suggestion that SNW will be episodic, with arcs being more "emotional" rather than plot based with some two-parters. I think this makes sense, because at the end of the day, SNW, if truly constrained by TOS canon, really can't go out and do that much galaxy-shaking.
One of the things I see in terms of SNW's potential is a lot of room to fill gaps left by everything from TOS onward, rather constrained by the other series.
As for "episodic" vs. "serialized"...I'm left scratching my head.
