Hi, everyone! I'm not sure if you've had the chance to catch the first (and only) broadcast episode of the latest series Star Trek Discovery on CBS last night or through Netflix outside of the US, but I thought it'd be a good idea to have a post in this community about it for those who want to discuss it.

My own thoughts are pretty mixed. I'm not much of a fan of the JJ Abrams look myself, and the cinematography was, um, confusing at times with all the dutch angles and cuts. That being said, I'm interested in how the series will portray the Klingons, as they seem to be more inspired by series like Game of Thrones in their look and feel this time around, and I have high hopes for the lead actresses. I'm very wary about the lead's connection to Sarek, Spock's father, and how that will play out.

Please make sure that you label your posts appropriately for spoilers. A good rule of thumb would be something like this: SPOILERS EPISODE 1 or SPOILERS EPISODES 1 & 2 before the main body of your comment.

Did anyone on this community attend KiScon this past weekend? It was my first time attending and was a thoroughly wonderful experience. I'd be glad to connect on DW with folks who were there.

I thought it was the coolest thing ever when we were writing it, the idea of doing a 'lost episode' of The Next Generation, but they're going to the holodeck to look back at Enterprise, Rick and I thought was a great sendoff to Star Trek [the franchise as it existed in 2005], and it didn't work out so well...It was a kind of a slap in the face to the Enterprise actors. I heard it from everybody, it was the only time Scott Bakula was ever mean to me. I regret it.

read the rest here.

from what i've seen & heard scott bakula is a ridiculously nice guy so for him to be "mean" to someone is a major thing.

Hi! I've just re-started my Dreamwidth account after a long time, and I thought I'd peek in here.

The main Trek thing I'm looking forward to right now is the DS9 documentary. Did anyone else participate in fundraising? My chosen perks were the Garak shirt, the pin set, and the Blu-Ray/DVD set. I valiantly restrained myself from getting the signed Garak shirt!

I love DS9 and I can't wait to see the interviews and the writer's room round-table.

Star Trek: Discovery is starting to fill its decks.

CBS Access is now confirming Michelle Yeoh will join the show, which has also cast two more actors to star in the eagerly anticipated series. One of the new characters will be the decades-old franchise’s first to be originally conceived and announced as gay.

I grew up watching the TOS reruns, but after awhile none of the local stations had them. I was so excited when TNG was announced, because there was finally going to be new Star Trek! I was less enthusiastic about the shows that followed, but eventually became a loyal viewer. I had rented or had seen on TV all of the movies at one time or another. Generations was the first one I saw in theaters. Insurrection was the last. I had read or or two novels, but never go into them. But one day I found like 21 (mostly TOS & TNG & a couple of DS9) at the local Goodwill which triggered a years-long quest to read as many as possible, which continues to this day. If anyone is interested, here's a like of the ones I like. I've seen all 5 series captains (and a few other Trek people) at Dragon-Con in 2009 & 2010, but didn't get autographs because of the cost. If anyone is interested, my post on Dragon-Con 2009 & 2010, go down to the bottom for the first posts. Feel free to comment there if you want. go a head & post your own memories of star trek.

On the same day CBS went on the defensive about the lack of diversity on its fall schedule, "Star Trek: Discovery" executive producer Bryan Fuller made clear that his new series will not have that problem.
Fuller announced Wednesday that the new show will feature a female lead character and honor the franchise's history of inclusion.

"'Star Trek' started with a wonderful expression of diversity in its cast. You had a Russian with a black woman and an Asian man amongst a Vulcan, which is a different kind of diversity," Fuller told reporters at a panel for the show at the Television Critics Association press tour. "We're absolutely continuing that tradition."
Fuller also said the new series will "absolutely" have a gay character.

Peter David’s “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Siege” on the iPad? Check. “Star Trek: Distant Early Warning” in the Starfleet Corps of Engineers series from Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore on the Kindle? Check.

you still have to buy them though. but most are under $3. it's almost enough to make me want to buy an e-reader or something.
