It's going to be made by the reboot film people, so I'm not sure I'll be able to watch more than 5 mins of it before wanting to throw something at the tv... :unsure:

I rather liked the 2009 film.  It felt, to me, a return to the idea that it was less about the technobabble and tired TNG crew (I'm sorry but even Patrick Stewart looked tired in Nemesis) and more about the action and adventure that a young crew in the golden age of Starfleet could and should be having.  Sure, Chris Pine should be playing an older and more seasoned Kirk, but it got him in the chair and we can go forward from there.  

 

If they can focus less on the twisted and convoluted 9/11 conspiracy theories (Yes, this formed the backbone for the plot in Into Darkness) and more on the fun and adventure, then I'd be ok with it.

 

Have you guys seen the Pacific 201 thing going on?

I enjoyed both "JJ Trek" movies, and will not revisit old discussions/arguments about the qualities (or lack thereof, depending on your perspective) of them. I am happy they are looking to make a new series, *if* they can keep the quality of writing and storylines we saw in both "Enterprise" and "DS9." My only real gripe is that the article I read made it sound like you would only be able to watch it through the CBS paid streaming service.

Have to agree with you here. The new movies were different, but I still enjoyed them - not as much as I enjoyed TNG or DS9, but it still satisfied my nostalgia for Trek. What really sucks is having this new series by streaming only. Unfortunately, that's where I see most TV moving anyway.

You know, if the producers are getting this much crap from fans this early on, it's not very likely to succeed.  They need people to be interested in Star Trek to get people to invest and fund the project.  Regardless of your personal feelings, they're at least getting out there and trying to deliver new stuff to us.  That, to me, is a worthwhile endeavor and worthy of our support just for getting Trek on TV again.  Yes, it's their job to build a show we can all relate to, that we can all enjoy, and one that could potentially set in motion the next one when it comes along.  But shooting it out of the sky before it even has a chance to get us interested isn't going to do anyone any favors other than tell the investors "Don't waste your money on this dead franchise."

Unfortunately, instead of the fanbase embracing the principles of IDIC, they have become fractured over the years.

 

Some didn't like DS9's grittier and darker tone.

 

Some didn't like "Voyager" for various reasons.

 

Some really didn't like "Enterprise."

 

The JJ Adams movies fractured it even more.

 

None of those people are wrong for feeling the way they do and not liking various aspects of the franchise. What is wrong and problematic is when someone tries to declare that one portion of the franchise isn't "the real Trek." That's because it alienates and makes those that like that part feel "less than."

 

As I stated above, I love that they are trying to bring it back, I just really do not like the placing it strictly on a paid for streaming service. The "Great Bird of the Galaxy" is probably spinning in his grave. Yeah, he supported merchandising, but that left it up to the consumer to choose that merchandise, while still being able to enjoy the setting he created.

My husband hated Star Trek and then the two latest movies came along and now he plays on this site. So many people who saw Star Trek as this nerdy old franchise now see it in a new accepting light and that is amazing.

 

I have been a Trek fan from my early years and Next Gen was my intro to the world but I love every take and new look at Star Trek. I love Next Gen just as much as I love the new movies. I even loved Enterprise which copped so much crap but brought amazing characters like Phlox and T'Pol to our door. Who doesn't love Phlox?!?

 

So sad people are so closed off to artistic expression and different directions. Embrace it all I say. Lifes too short to be closed off to anything as awesome as our beloved Star Trek universe.

 

I personally cant wait!

I love all Star Trek, most of the time. My hope for the Star Trek franchise is that we stop going back to the future and go further into the future. That's what it was for the first Star Trek, for us nerdy kids that watched TOS for the first time on TV, when our world was in a very real danger of blowing itself to bits in a third world war with no survives, it showed us what the future could be like. When we were beginning to ask if there could be life out there in space, it showed us many new species. It made social comment on our world "Don't be stupid with racism, sexism, national allegiances, make a good case for your view, don't just blow people up if you happen to disagree with them, that we are not the only ones in this universe, look what we can do if we all work together.

 

In our world now with terrorism, and death cults, with corruption and greed, and  a world that makes small attempt to feed the poor and help the needed, even though we have the resources to do so,  we need a new vision of the future. I think Star Trek needs to go boldly into a new future.

 

Utopia? Idealism you say? Maybe, but that's what it was like with the first star trek for me as a kid.

 

What ever CBS produces I'll enjoy it anyway. But I hope someone will take on the vision and will do something completely new and fresh for our time and space. Go boldly into the future of the future.

I think we should give it the benefit of the doubt before we start judging it.

 

Honestly, I wish Seth McFarlane could get a green light to do a trek series. If I recall correctly he's stated that he would like to do so. Plus, I think the fact he's a fan wouldn't hurt anything. I've watch Blunt Talk (starring Sir Patrick) and he's producing that. So I think he could do a good job if given a chance.

 

At the moment this supposed-JJTrek is what we're probably going to end up getting. Some are weary on it, but some fans were weary about DS9 when it first started due to it's weak start, and it was one of the best Trek series (I'll probably take some flack on that).

I read somewhere over the weekend that this was going to be set in the 'Prime' universe, not the JJ-Trek universe. It inst confirmed yet but apparently the guy who played Worfs brother on TNG and elderly Jake Sisko has been asked to come on board to reprise one of the characters, he hasn't revealed which one yet.

Please let's do some thing new and bold, truly go where no Star Trek has gone before! Rather than nostalgia  with tired characters and same old same old, Please!

 

Don't get me wrong, the character Wolf was OK in the other series, but please let ST be bold as it once was. Take a risk. Value add to the legacy.

I'm with you. I don't think we need or indeed will see the old characters again, unless in cameo, but I suppose stranger things have happened. IF they do make it Prime then I would hope they take it ahead in years, like TNG did from TOS, as a 'reboot' is what they called it in that last article I shared. They could take it ahead to ... Fedspace timeline!  ;)

Putting it on the air is also a 'pay wall'.  This is 2016, and I would argue that streaming is the way everything is going.  In our household we ONLY do streaming services, so if it was on-air only then we'd miss out.  No matter how they deliver, someone isn't going to like it.

I like the character of Worf, but I think it would be best to focus on new characters. For me, personally, I would like to see Star Trek Renegades polished up and aired since I like the concept behind it.

I think the issue here is that since there's still a CBS channel, they should've made it accessible to both. Heck, even give some incentive to purchase a subscription. Say perhaps you get to see the new episodes a day earlier or something like that.

A new update/rumour to add to the mix...

 

'The new Star Trek TV Show will be set before The Next Generation'

 

http://birthmoviesde...next-generation

 

After a couple of minutes pondering, I actually quite like the idea of a show pre TNG. Maybe make it an Enterprise C show?

 

I also like the possibility that it could be an anthology show changing era per season.

Just watched it again. The music playing during the ship reveal is almost identical to themes used for the Klingons which reaffirms my belief that the ship is modeled after Klingon design. 

 

My big concern is that the ship is very CGI-y. Like, it looks worse than the NX-01 Enterprise and it took me a while to really appreciate the ship (which, by the way, they hadn't intended to include as much detail as they did it just ended up that way because someone did a high detail version and nobody bothered to trim it down for regular shots so that ended up being the model they used).

...Or the Klingon cloaking sound at the end of the trailer?  ;)

 

More interesting little tidbits coming out all the time... firstly that this rendering isn't the final ship design, they will likely be tweeking it until release day... also, that the model is based fairly obviously on the design for the Enterprise for the never made movie Star Trek: Planet of Titans... but I'm just reading that that model was actually made up and appeared in the background in Trek on a few occasions...

I did think that it looked familiar... I'm gonna have to get out my dvd's and hit the pause button a few more times I guess!  B)

Looks like that ship design that so many were complaining about has been changed already, as Fuller etc said would happen anyway. Some bits about timeline and character/s. No big reveals, but with casting under way and filming beginning next month there's bound to be more coming out soon...

Latest update. Nothing big yet still, but am keeping up with it (and filtering out all the BS, of which there is a lot). 

 

 

‘Star Trek: Discovery’: 5 Things We Learned at the Mission New York Convention

 

https://www.yahoo.co...-000000347.html

 

I'm pleased at the news that there will be novels accompanying the series, I do like Kirsten Meyer's writing, if a little dry, and David Mack's work is always solid imo. To me all this shows at least that there is serious thought, and maybe support, into having a good story and script, character depth, in Disco. I hope anyway. 

 

Casting is coming up soon, and filming very soon after that, so there should be more announcements soon too.

Just another little update. Hope nobody minds. Latest is that the airing date has been pushed back from January to May. 

 

http://deadline.com/...ess-1201819639/

 

Personally I don't mind waiting a bit longer if it means they have more time to polish the scripts, effects etc. I mean, we've waited this long... right?

There's been little of substance coming our way about Disco for some time, which made a number of folk wail and gnash their teeth that nothing was happening... 

 

Then there was the news that Bryan Fuller is stepping back from the day to day showrunner role. Another round of wailing and gnashing of teeth and speculations that the sky was falling in on the show. 

 

This news here http://geeknation.co...xcept-for-lead/ puts such worries to bed I think. Seeing the budget that the network is putting up for each episode - on a par with Game of Thrones et al, says they have faith in the show and Fuller is just juggling his many roles. Goldsman's credentials are very interesting I think, it will be interesting to see what he brings to the mix.

 

I expect we'll start to hear the casting news in the coming weeks now...

This news is a cause for concern. On one hand, shows of this kind can gather momentum and build long lasting success if done right, look at Game of Thrones for instance. On the other hand, Star Trek has its place as a family friendly show. I for one, was hoping to be able to watch Star Trek with my little girl one day...

I think this period of everything going quiet from official sources and the studio leads people into conjecture and supposition. That article doesn't actually speak to anyone from the show, just a line from CEO of CBS interactive and it isn't even a direct quote. I think in this case perhaps as the budget per episode was said to be equivalent to Game of Thrones, that people have gone further and imagined other similarities. Truth is, without official word it's all just talk. With GoT we had an idea there would be nudity and profanity as HBO were known for it with other popular shows there such as True Blood. Maybe US peeps can tell me if CBS have shows already using the format, which would make it more likely to follow rather than Trek break new ground for them?

 

(Also from that article - Bryan Fuller hasn't left, he just changed from going into the office every day to going in once a week or so, as he has other projects on the go at the same time, just a time management decision rather than loss of interest or faith in the show. Similar happened with Doctor Who for a year from what I remember).

I'm a die hard trekker and while Kelvin trek has a lot of inaccuracies that drive me nuts, I do, at the core, love it all...even Enterprise!

 

But this new show has me uneasy...first, the fact it won't be on normal cable but on a pay channel...  Why am I going to pay for a channel for a single show?  Second, they're tossing out all these random things about the show but not giving it substance...it won't focus on the Captain...every star trek series has episodes focusing on other characters.  It may have nudity and profanity.  Personally I don't think that's necessary in the show and would be added more as a draw to pull certain people into it.  It'll push me away from the show.  There is no story they need to tell that requires showing that.  I heard the Captain may be a Klingon...in Starfleet...the first Klingon in Starfleet was Worf...and this takes places before TOS...where we were not buddy buddy with the Klingons?

 

Also the ship looks odd.  It seems to me that they're trying to toss in all these concepts to be edgy and "modern" and are forgetting it's not about that...it's about a story and characters in situations that allow us to look at the world today...

 

AND they want me to pay to watch it...  I'll watch the premiere...but I don't know about paying for the series.  I'm counting on my friends overseas to get it for me online from netflix(which gives it to everyone but Americans)...

I think it'll all make sense when there are some proper official releases about the show. At the moment we're just getting sound bites and hearsay, supposition and guesswork. Rushed CGI just to get a basic first trailer out there was unwise, but clearly somebody was pushed to get something out at short notice. More recently, someone mentions there's a Klingon Captain cast, so people ask how the Starlfeet ship can have a Klingon Captain, but it wasn't actually claimed to be a Starfleet Klingon Captain... just that there was a Klingon Captain. Just an example there, but people are getting so little real information they are left with one-plus-one-equals-five.

 

Paying for tv isn't new. In the UK we've been doing it since June 1946, and some people only watch Doctor Who on the BBC, so effectively pay for one show. Personally I threw my tv and satellite dish out of a second floor window the day after X Factor first aired. If I see any new shows now it's either on netflix or the internet, both of which I have to pay for (but can choose what I see).

 

Disco might still be pants, but until we get to see some actual footage I'm just going to sit and hope for the best.  :)

As to paying... When Voyager premiered on UPN back in 95, I was watching it a week later in the UK on VHS along with Generations.
 

I'm sure Discovery will be 'available' one way or another.

I hope she develops a personality or range of expressions other than glum for a change. Isn't she already busy being dull and moody in Agents of Shield though?

 

Maybe she just keeps on getting cast as dull, expressionless and moody and she's just very good at it  :P

Zan, good points...we pay for cable in the states...this is an EXTRA pay on top of what you're already paying for this one channel....when I currently pay for hundreds of channels when I could be content with a dozen or so...so to pay another fee on top just for one service...it seems a scheme...  I don't see how they will be successful when a die hard like me isn't up for paying for it.  Yeah, it's $6 and I can easily afford it...but it's the principle that puts me off...does that make sense?  Tell me if I'm not making sense...  Because knowing star trek is on and I'm not seeing it will be uncomfortable...

Kaiser, I think it really depends on the person.

 

One would pay a lot more than $6 to watch a 2 hour Star Trek movie in the theater. Star Trek Discovery stream will be offering you Star Trek themed entertainment for an average of 3 hours (with no ads)  per monthly subscription and at the comfort of your home at anytime of your choosing with as many reruns as you want, In addition, CraveTV in Canada offers the first month free and you can always unsubscribe for the months when the show is not making new episodes.)

 

For me, the issue that will determine that whole "is it worth it?" arguments remains to be the quality of the show itself, and how much it means to me personally to support having a Star Trek show running on my TV.  :)

Good point...i didn't think of it that way. I read somewhere it will include ads...I never followed ds9 closely when it aired but my wife and I have been watching it on Netflix. Its been nice not having ads... I guess I need to wait and see... Part of me thinks I wait till the season is done, buy it, and binge it...cause $6 a month for, I'm guessing, four episodes...it isn't that bad in that light.

No idea who Rapp is, but I have heard of Jones.
 

Thing is, Jones seems to be the go to guy these days for practical suit creature roles (If you haven't seen him, take a look at Hellboy,  or for those of you who are a bit more adventurous, Pan's Labyrinth).

 

Question is, will he be using his own voice, or will they have another actor dubbing him like in several other of his roles?

The uniforms do look interesting, with the collar for a start, but style does seem to be an evolution from the Enterprise ones. I hope we get to see a bit more like this more frequently now. I'm still intrigued about the plot. Still so much we don't know.

I remember watching an interview with him on Breakfast telly many moons ago, and they read out an extract from his casting CV, and it said something like he was the go to guy for playing villains, which he was at the time, and he actually seemed shocked and surprised that was what his CV said.

After that, he did actually seem to get less bad guy roles.

Now, this is just my random thoughts, but it looks like it should be set in the future of TNG rather than between Ent and TOS. The look is just way too clean and modern now.

 

And are they taking their inspiration from Warhammer 40K? The spacesuit looks like a Tau battle suit of some kind, and in one scene there, they're standing on something that looks very Imperial Gothic in nature. As do the nu-nu Klingons.

I expect they felt the need to make it bright and shiny like the JJ movies to attract the generation of fans from those films. They may be a little lost in the Prime 'verse.

 

It'll take a little getting used to, but if the scripts, stories, and casting are strong enough the bright and shiny won't put me off.

 

I'm actually intrigued by the banded about 'ancient Klingons', whatever they may be. We have no context or anything for them from the trailer so far, so while odd looking, I'll reserve judgement until we know more.

I agree with Ens Black, setting this 10 years before Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise 1701 etc is fine, but it looks as if it should be set around the time of DS9, it doesn't have the feel of being pre-TOS just like ENT. It's not clunky enough :)

 

I think I would still like to see it though as the effects do look good.

I'm still intrigued by the prospect of ST:Disco. We still know so little. We have a main character, XO of the USS Shenzou. Not of the USS Discovery. We have two captains; Georgiou of the Shenzou, and Lorca of the Discovery. We have showrunners talking about having the freedom to have characters at odds with each other, or show base characteristics and friction. What does this all mean? Is Lorca the one at odds? If we're following a character on another, older, ship, is Lorca taking the Disco beyond his/its remit? Where does this fit with the times of war? I guess we'll have to wait and wonder a while longer. 

 

http://ew.com/tv/201...iscovery-rules/

 

As for how it looks, they're clearly trying to make it look big, look like the movies, especially the most recent Kelvin timeline ones. Let's face it, all the previous shows were limited and looked the way they did mainly because of budgets and technology available at the time. Disco is no different in that respect, they've just been given a lot more money - akin to Game of Thrones per episode - so will have production values far beyond what was available to our beloved old shows. It may all go terribly wrong, or it may just surprise and delight, as Star Trek has done for us all at some point or we wouldn't be here. Just my thoughts folks.

It's starting to look good and the StarFleet ships look familiar too.

And here's where continuity goes out the window for the hell of it.

I see comicbook have done an edit on their story. That's the trouble with having to wait so long for the show, it gives so much time for every single tiny fragment of possible news to be taken out of a context that we don't know enough about yet. Only the official releases matter after all, but unless they expand on what they've given us we should just wait to see the show, and make our minds up then imo.  B)

I didn't get to see TNG until a couple of years after it had been on TV, so I had lots of catching up to do. Now that this new series is coming out, I'll be deliberately trying to avoid hearing about it, which will be very hard. I'll see the first episode, but then will not be able to see the rest until later. I expect it will be at least a year, possibly two before it becomes available without subscribing to their stupid channel. I'm not going to get excited about it for quite a while.

So we had a few more bits of info out of comicon last week. The talk about canon must drive them crazy. The different Klingon clans idea is interesting imo. I might not like the ultra shiny visuals but I'm sure going to give the show a go. I'm most likely going to be away when the first two episodes premier, so will probably see three in one run. That's how I like my tv anyway.  :)
