    Considering Uhura wears the same duty uniform as everyone else (only her badge is different) why would she have a different dress uniform?

    I think it depends on how popular the show and the character turn out to be. If they do multiple seasons of SNW then there's no reason for him to appear in other shows. Alternatively, if it has a limited run, but people want more of Pike, they could bring him back to Discovery or the Section 31 show if that ever happens.

    A hard-and-fast rule Trek has broken more often than not. Put another way, Trek is science fantasy and has been from day one, not strict science fiction.

    Even if they're a danger to themselves and others? She took her young son into underground tunnels and left him, then hung herself.

    Trek has always been about "space magic." Always.

    There's always been more magic than science in Trek - as with most spiffy adventure stories. They just use techy language.

    We just like to tell ourselves otherwise because calling it "science" makes the franchise sound smarter.

    There is a fine line between magic and science.

    I've never thought they would alter Pike being put into the wheelchair but ever since the Starfleet Academy comic in the 90s I did wonder if there would be some way to have him reappear post-Menagerie, mostly as some kind of telepathic vision of himself, appearing to Spock or Colt or Number One etc. I think of Daniel Jackson in Season 6 of Stargate SG-1 appearing to the team members or to whoever he chooses. It's quite possible the show won't ever get that far but then perhaps this show itself gets it's own spinoff, Star Trek: Season 4. Or perhaps it's a coda in a series finale and they do new scenes of Anson on Talos with Vina to show the SNW audience that his character gets something of a "happy" ending. Or they don't.

    No. Clark's little line about science and magic can be shoved up his cold dead arse.

    I don’t know who he is or what you are referring to? But there *is* a fine line between science and magic. Show our science to someone a few hundred years ago and it is likely to be perceived as magic. If someone 500 years from now shows us their science it could also be perceived as magic… :biggrin:

    He's referring to Arthur C. Clarke and Clarke's Law: Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

    Not to be confused with Clark's Law: Only one bespectacled mild mannered reporter for a great Metropolitan newspaper is secretly Superman.

    I have a very closed mind and unfortunately haven’t read any Arthur C Clarke (yet). I must have heard it in an episode of Star Trek or Doctor Who? :guffaw:

    It's invoked in a conversation between the Doctor and Ace in the Season 26 story "Battlefield," before being flipped on its head to assert that: "Any sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from technology."

    Not by being members of this board, that's for sure. :lol:
