Star Trek: Discovery Catch-All [Spoilers]

It would probably be the perfect length for a single season, but they could totally do the Enterprise C story.

Also, Star Trek VI was the 90's, and TNG started in '87.

They meant between the late 23rd and mid 24th centuries. C' Mon now...

Only we know how that story ends already.

The Enterprise B on the other hand....

Eh, they kinda ruined that story by making the captain a total dork in Generations.

I'm not sure how I feel about that. I agree it's a bit pandering in some sense, but where were they going to put it? Post-voyager? I can't help but feel that'd be challenging given all the disparate technologies that were brought back in that series, from sentient holograms transmitted across whole quadrants to trans-warp drive.

And if they're going to stick it anywhere between any of the series post-OST and pre-TNG makes a fair bit of sense, since they've already tried pre-OST and TNG is covered right up until the post-Voyager stuff.

Yeah, Voyager really wrote themselves into a corner. I don't know where you go from there. They established too many magic technologies that they'd have to roll back somehow.

Replace him.

Well... that didn't tell us anything.

True but it didn't really even tease anything.

CBS is doing it? So basically CSI: Qo'noS?

Paramount is supposedly dropping their lawsuit against Axanar. Someone apparently convinced them that, with how terrible Into Darkness was, Star Trek Beyond might suffer because fans would just stay away due to bad movies and litigation against them.

I have so many hopes on this series being an actual decent take on Star Trek. Brian Fuller leading the charge gives me great hope. The anthology format for each season could really keep this thing rolling for a long time and really show some interesting timelines.

* Post undiscovered country/pre next gen is just ripe for some good stories leading up to the creation of the Galaxy class
* Post Janeway/Voyager would be amazing to finally see. Maybe a new era of transwarp powered extra-galactic discovery? Enemies that actually threaten the entire galaxy (and make the Borg look like punks) would be cool
* Post Archer/Enterprise with the formation of the Federation and the romulan war (which was supposed to be in Enterprise in subsequent seasons

Thinking further on this, smaller character based focus could be used to tell some awesome stories as well. Band of Brothers type of thing set during the Romulan (or Klingon) wars.

A whole season of "Lower Decks" episodes? Sure.

Yes, and also, please more Klingon homeworld.

This is the best TV pitch of all time. Thank FSM there's a Like button on GWJ now. But what do you mean I can only hit it once?

Not an anthology series. Not set between Undiscovered Country and Next Gen. 13 episode story arc (not standalone eps).

Interesting remarks about the streaming method freeing them from certain broadcast TV standards.

I'm hoping for a post-Voyager show. Set it 16 years after Voyager ended to sync the 24th century back up with our timeline. It would be far enough after the Dominion War to not bog down the show with excessive continuity and it would allow for guest appearances of our favourite 24th century characters.

Yes. This. My all time favourite TNG episode.

Think it's time to update the thread title.

Interesting that they chose to base the design on Ken Adams and Ralph McQuarrie's unused Enterprise concept art.

Shiny.

Well, if Star Wars is doing it...

Star Wars has been doing it a lot (Rebels and Episode 7). Feels a bit more appropriate, since the original designs for Star Wars were in that style already, so the alternate concept art most fit in. The Star Trek

Still, the ship turned out pretty well for a design I didn't particularly care for in the concepts. And it's probably worth noting that ships with similar designs have shown up in Star Trek before, since the study models for the design got used at Wolf 359 and in the space dock scene in The Search for Spock.

Might be the lighting but it looks kinda like a romulan ship from that teaser.

Kind of odd looking ship, but I like it.

As soon as I saw the pull back on the ship, I knew this was referencing the original Star Trek: TMP ship designs. Weird as hell, but this one manages to make things look MUCH better than the original designs. I've theoretically posted an image of that ship below.

The way they've tweaked the design makes this ship feel like it fits perfectly in the Star Trek: Starfleet Command series of PC games. Which, I totally want to go play again now, and leads me to think we're looking at a Motion Picture era series here. Somewhere in between Star Trek TMP and STVI. The registry puts this ship before the Constitution class series of vessels, but that doesn't eliminate the possibility of the ship operating in that timeline. Heck, the Grissom from STIII was NCC - 638.

I hope they keep working on the CG for that ship, it seemed so...flat to me.

Other than that I'm really interested to see where this goes.
