    From what I’m seeing… they recently announced that Paramount+ now has a partnership deal with Sky in Europe. As for SNW - someone in charge of Trek (I forgot who, I think it was Kurtzman himself but don’t quote me on that) said in an interview a while ago that Netflix has the European rights to Disco AND its spin-offs (like Short Treks). So, if they sell SNW as a Disco spin-off, it would have to go to Netflix. However, if they sell it as a completely new show (which is what I think they’ll be doing), it’ll most likely be on that Sky thingy. Their ultimate goal is to launch Paramount+ globally AND make it the home for Trek, after all. They don’t want for other streaming services to have Trek, it makes no sense for their business model. They want to sell their own streaming service. So, in the long run, my guess is that they’re gonna wait for Netflix and Prime to run out of their current contracts with CBS and then they’re gonna pull Trek from there and it will all be on Sky/Paramount+.

    The weird thing is, we haven't had any of the Short Treks since season one on Dutch Netflix. If we had, I would have said SNW on Netflix is a given. Now I'm not so sure.

    I don’t think the season 2 Short Treks were put on Netflix anywhere in Europe. They had to release them on DVD - I’m guessing Netflix simply wasn’t interested in adding them despite having the rights to them. I mean they don’t really fit to Netflix’ style, they’re basically little mini stories while Netflix is all about full series and movies. I mean Prime didn’t add the PIC Short Trek either, or did they? It’s just not a thing for these streaming services. They’re only interested in full shows, and to them Trek is just a tiny section of their selection. They just can’t be bothered.

    No, my bad. I re-read what I said and it came off very snappy. I was a bit stressed out at the time. So the fault lies with me.

    Well, the Discovery enterprise.
    The one in SNW has probably been touched up again.

    And probably a lot closer to the TOS Enterprise, at least in external appearance.

    I bet they straitened the nacelle struts.

    It could be how it's rendered, but it looks like to me that they put the curve back into the bottom of the saucer, it's no longer flat. The pylons still seem to be thicker than TOS though.

    Very doubtful, I know a lot of fans EXPECT this because they WANT IT. But it's not happening. Maybe a few minor tweaks since it got pretty banged up during season 2 of Discovery, but it'll mostly look the same.
