So we have gone looking for them!
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:
and the Trekkie Girls jumped up and said in our best Sulu accent:
It HAS to be Praxis right?
As for this, initial thoughts are Romulus which we know in the Prime Universe has been destroyed by a supernova. It looks greenish.
Then there is a brief pink circle burst before the logo is revealed.
It has an edgy, metallic somewhat V’Ger vibe about it. We suspect the split in insignia is significant. Maybe alluding to some split in the Federation? This isn’t a new concept. DS9, Voyager and even Enterprise relied on the ‘two types of crew’ to create conflict and drive storytelling.
Now we have have likely made massive leaps in our guessing game jumping timelines and themes but maybe that something we can expect from a new series?
As we previously speculated, rumours suggest that each season could be its own entity?
