    Honestly, the sky blue/gray tint shouldn't work, particularly on the bridge, but it does . . . masterfully. I also love the way they swing around when a seated crewperson gets up.

    That struck me strongly in the rewatching of The Man Trap this week. First McCoy talks about last seeing Nancy twelve years ago. Later, he says ten years ago.

    Obviously, he's rounding on the second one.

    Or that they had a two year relationship, meeting each other 12 years ago and breaking up ten years before the episode.
    In my Star Trek Chronology, I have Bones and Nancy's relationship as an extramarital affair that led to the breakup of McCoy's marriage. So they started seeing each other in 2253 and broke up in 2255. Coincidentally enough, this is the same year that McCoy meets Kirk in the Kelvin Timeline and McCoy says "my ex-wife took the whole damn planet in the divorce."

    PRO spoilers!

    Ensign Garrovick crashed on the planet they visit in the new episode, and there are many unaltered TOS designs in it!

    Well, these are kinda altered. The uniform feels more like a Star Trek Beyond shirt and the phaser is close but almost like a 1970's fan attempt.

    Seems appropriate given the episode.

    I didn't know what the hell PRO stood for until someone kindly spelled it out. This is a TOS board. :)

    Regarding the blue-uniformed guy in the captain's chair: if a Starfleet officer [of either sex] put that much concern into his hairstyle, such that he's actually wearing a beehive tower on his head, then I wouldn't trust his judgement or his strength of character. He needs too much mirror time and primping. He is putting too much mental effort into looking "fabulous." That's not an officer I want in charge of a starship and its crew. Give me a captain who spends that time thinking about the mission and our survival.

    Yes, TOS women sometimes had beehive hairdo's, but the point of that was to distinguish them, to separate them into a category other than "serious officer who can be tough, take charge, and get hard things done, and who doesn't waste time on nonsense." A silly, vain hair tower sends the message, "If you're looking for the boss, keep looking."

    Reasonable. In Captain Dal’s case, the hair strands waving up like that is naturally for his species. No special hair care products required.

    I’m totally not jealous of that fact. :whistle:

    Okay, but what is the franchise saying here? It's telling young guys to go nuts with their hairstyles. And that's a future I don't want to live in. :wtf:

    People with hairstyles, what a dystopian vision of the future. :vulcan:

    Dal’s hairdo is natural but suppose he were Human, there’ll probably a device you can wave over your tresses right after wake-up to put them in place.

    I remind you all, Dal has the same hair as SNW's Captain Pike

    Captain Pike looks more like a tube of toothpaste than Dal though.

    Not all of Starfleet uses the Vulcan conforming haircut.
