They built a corridor extension for this season
That's the stuff. Great lighting/compositing.
The shuttlebay is closed in that first shot. Either they changed it, or we just misinterpreted it the first time the scene was shown.
The final image, they forgot the glow around the bay.
Discovery looked sexy af in tonight's episode of New Eden. The VFX team is bringing it hard this season. Well well done. Gorgeous shots.
Those windows are fake in-universe: there's no space behind them, just a black plate. The ship is full of such fake windows. Sickbay, say.
Of course, some of the quarters could have real windows there, and the corridors past the doors would then go into the four spokes that connect the rings of the primary hull. But there's no in-show need for that as such.
The walks with "continuous" dialogue basically never measure up anyway. We could and should insert a couple of unseen deck changes in there, thus allowing for any number of turns.
The Enterprise looks great every time I see the ship on screen.
I'm wondering if they've shortened the nacelles just a bit...
Doesn't look like it.
I think this season looks pretty good. Last season was hit or miss, but I think it's really come together.
I still would like to see some different types of space shots, and the ship CGI still looks a little cheap at times, but overall it's probably one of the most lush looking productions ever put on television (do we still call it television?), if not the most.
I really don't think they're shorter. And good cause I really like their current length.
I'm glad they got rid of all that blue glare
Anyone notice the saucer missing out the bridge window from a couple episodes ago? It should be entirely visible from this vantage point, possibly even blocking any view of space. I'm guessing this is the reason they left it out, would've been confusing to look at and doesn't look as nice as stars. Also they are preparing for a CTP test, so maybe that's a holographic image of space and not an actual view out the window.
I've also noticed that they've completely redone all the computer screen graphics on the bridge.
Lot's of nice deck plans and new graphics of the ship, for sure!
I just read in the Official Magazine # 70 that they've decided on 18 decks, counting the bridge. An interview/tour of the standing sets with art director Jody Clement...
Do any deck plans on the show have 18 decks?
Awesome! Good to know. Know of any online version anywhere?
The MSD in Pike's new ready room shows 18, yeah
Dat Ba'ul goo simulation, though. For a CG character the Ba'ul felt very otherworldly, yet very real at the same time. Fantastic animation/rendering.
It looked so fantastic. Loved it. I thought for sure James Spader was the voice, but the credits say it was someone else. He sounded so similar haha.
