Star Trek Discovery – Timeline revealed, Who we hope to see…

At the Television Critics Press Association Press tour (we don't know what that is either!) Bryan Fuller spilled some goodies about the new Star Trek series Discovery. If you haven't read all about it, check out this article from Variety who were reporting live from the event. Then come back whilst I speculate with my thoughts! Here's a cheat sheet of the news thanks to Screen Junkies.discofacts Just as a caveat to the above, I can't find any direct source that states the series will be set in the Klingon Wars. It's probably a good guess as a lot of events have been ruled out such as the Romulan war (Battle of Axanar) and The Kobayashi Maru.  Bryan Fuller did mention Amanda Grayson too but it didn't read as definite that her character is included. Whilst in Vegas, Carole and I spent a lot of time speculating with others … Continue Reading ››

USS Discovery Revealed

In case you missed it, Bryan Fuller (Star Trek's new showrunner and our new cult leader) revealed the title of the New Star Trek Series; Star Trek Discovery (or STD as it will never be referred too). The teaser showed us a brief reveal of the USS Discovery. The reaction has been as divisive as Brexit and much like our recent political drama there has already been some backtracking with execs stating that 'its not a final design'. We have been asked by many for our opinion so here is what we think. Overall, we like it! Its design resembles a Starfleet insignia from underneath, but it is also somewhat reminiscent of a TOS era Romulan Bird of Prey. A clue to its era perhaps? Romulan_bird-of-prey,_TOS-forward Ok, so it doesn't have the sleek, sexiness of an Enterprise. But that is fine with us. Maybe it's not supposed too. It's … Continue Reading ››

New series teaser

Did you see it? The 'teaser' for the 2017  Star Trek series? Show runner (translation: our latest victim to twitter stalking) posted this 'teaser' for the 'teaser'. Hinting that it may contain Easter Eggs. So we have gone looking for them! First thoughts; Fast zoom past Earth and the moon to signify 'we're going to be exploring the further reaches of our galaxy?' The Nebula is reminiscent of the one at the end of Voyager's opening credits? Also note news story from this week that Star Trek Voyager novelist Kirsten Beyer has joined the writing staff. Then this happened: Screen Shot 2016-06-03 at 20.10.30   It HAS to be Praxis right? Screen Shot 2016-06-03 at 20.19.04 As for this, initial thoughts are Romulus which … Continue Reading ››

Trekkie Girls Ep – A Roddenberry at the Helm

The announcements regarding the New Star Trek Series are beginning to read like a Trekkies dream team from an internet forum. Next they'll be telling us they've signed up William Shatner and Patrick Stewart. They'll be no complaints here! We can't help but fan girl over the latest news that Eugene 'Rod' Roddenberry has been named Executive Producer. Check out our reaction here: The series now boasts five executive producers, in addition to Rod there's also Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Trevor Roth and Bryan Fuller. It's like they want us to like it! Then of course there's the news that Nicholas Meyer has joined the series on the writing staff. Known for directing (and co-writing, uncredited) Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, co-writing Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and co-writing and directing Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. So we have a good mixture of producers and writers that cover all aspects of the Star Trek Universe. From Meyer who worked … Continue Reading ››
