    That's the title I've been pushing for. It makes perfect sense as it would be the series most-closely tied with TOS and that it features THAT Enterprise. I'd see the show logically ending with Pike's promotion and the handing off of the Enterprise to Kirk.

    One shouldn’t make a show for either, but rather for oneself in the hope that others will like it. CBS should pick a showrunner, give them free rein to succeed or fail at their original idea for ST. The “Pike show” idea has too much consensus behind it.

    And there we have it again: 2258-2263, like I said.

    Honestly, all I want is more Anson Mount and more Pike. He could be a Fleet Captain in charge of Fleet operations and I would watch it.

    Pike is a character I find highly interesting. So the more of him the better, in my opinion. I don't care about fan consensus.

    CBS should do what they have reason to believe that the most people will watch.

    Even better. Give me a Who Framed Roger Rabbit-style mix of Trek live action and animation!

    That could well condemn us to even MORE reality shows like LegoMasters and Gordon Ramsey.....always pretending something of value is at stake.

    I must have missed the part where you get to tell me how to post.

    I just used your comment as an example of my claim earlier that the “Pike show” isn’t just a vague concept with many, many different interpretations, ranging from his childhood to final years, but usually this very specific idea that CBS should simply give us more of what seemed to work in DSC S2, perhaps even in place of what began as the flagship concept: Discovery.

    And I the part where you get to tell me to mind-read. If you’d rather reply like this than (gasp!) go back and try to perceive the effect of your comments in a post that just so happens to follow mine, if you can’t accept constructive criticism on how to clarify what you’re tying into, then I can’t help you and you’ll just have to keep explaining your actual intent in the future.

    Funny that Pike's command are the same years Kelvin Timeline Kirk served as Captain of the Enterprise.

    I'm sorry, did you think we're going to escape that sentence?

    This imho is the best approach.
    Modern television usually tend to have 2 main plots going on: the serie plot and the season plot. ENT had this for instance, but it wasn't well developed until late season 3.

    Doctor Who have this, and I think that anything releated to TOS and early TNG era should take with both hands inspiration on Doctor Who later seasons (2005 onward) because it's the only show that stayed faithful to his episodic nature while still being loved by most of his fans.

    So
    Someone on another forum claimed Mount took a swing at Kurtzman and may have connected. Anson has changed his tune recently but after filming ended he was very open about what a miserable experience it was to work on Discovery.

    LOL. He gave interviews saying he enjoyed the time and would come back if asked.

    Do-it-yourself Pike show: watch everything else with a Pike actor in it and pretend it’s Pike having illusions on Talos IV.
