    I don't think so either. I think they want to make a mark and have the newer characters be more dynamic, since Pike and Spock are known quantities.

    It should be obvious that we're not going to see TOS characters other than Spock in SNW because Spock is the only TOS character who served under both Pike and Kirk.

    Very true. But look at what board we're posting on. ;)

    If it's Uhura, she should be in gold ;)

    I just hope Spikey Red Colt will never appear again - or used to explain how she changed so much.

    Considering we don't know its Colt it doesn't require explanation.

    Two people can share the same name

    Nothing about pre-DSC Canon precluded Spock having a sister.

    You're taking a pickle and trying to compare it to an apple.

    One is Colt and the other is Q’holh’t.

    Specifically, it's me. I'm the one talking out of my censored smiley face. The M'Benga-Uhura-Chapel connection was speculation on my part, since it's highly likely that all those names are codenames (casting sheets always do that, and Biodun is explicitly an unidentified TOS character). No one has made the connection to the five cast in the Illuminerdi article and the five new actors on the video, and I just noted that they fit pretty well and included my speculation on who a couple of them might actually be.

    AFAIK, I'm the first one who's made the Miller-Chapel connection, which given my track record here, is automatically assumed to not be the case.

    Sorry if I confused you by speculating on a speculative thread. We know nothing until Paramount tells us more.

    And Fisher. Can't forget about Ol' Fish, the greatest character in Star Trek history.

    This is where I point out, once again, that at no point in "The Cage" is it stated or implied that Yeoman Colt is human. All we know is that she's a woman, from Earth, who can probably procreate with Pike. Pike found her physically attractive, but maybe he's into spiky women.

    "Colt" was never explicitly identified as such on-screen, anyway. They can ignore the credits if they really want to; I doubt they ever imagined SNW would actually happen when they did that.

    Will it be after The Cage and after Disco S2? I think it could even be before The Cage, or between the two, or even around the end of Pike's command, all of which would be interesting.

    That's sorta the approach the Marvel comic Star Trek: Early Voyages took. It started shortly before the events of "The Cage" and showed that episode from Yeoman Colt's perspective.

    If Chapel ever shows up she should be played by Rebecca Romijn.

    Where's the canon saying Uhura joined the crew when Kirk did? It's right up there with "Spock doesn't have a sister" to me.

    Correct. Colt was never identified onscreen or even in the credits. Her name purely comes from background sources.

    For all intents and purposes, Laurel Goodwin was playing a random, unnamed Yeoman. Unlike Nicole Dickinson, the only person ever identified as playing Yeoman Colt in the credits of a Star Trek episode.

    If it's their intent she be Yeoman Colt (as it clearly was or they'd have given another name in Disco S2), they'll pretty sharpish establish it in SNW.
