Well than, after all those months and a long wait, the first trailer REAL for Star Trek Discovery has arrived. I had to watch it a few times to get everything out from it, but so far I have a "I don't know about this" feeling. it's a tiny bit interesting as I had a similar feeling about the first Kelvin movie too. A new movie about a classic Star Trek. Well, this trailer looks cool. The visuals are much better than the the comic con trailer back than, athough it feels more like a Battlestar Galactica for me at this point. It's a totally fresh show and a totally different aspect of Star Trek.
As they stated initially, the first officer will have an issue with the central command that had a little hint in the trailer and yes, Michael will be the centre point of this adventure. The make up is amazing in this trailer, the uniforms are more like a crossover between the Enterprise and the Kelvin universe. The ship looked amazing, although visually I wasn't really excited about that as Axanar, or other fan projects had similar cgi ships.
Kelvin, Kelvin... Is That You?
The Klingons finally revealed in their "glory" and they look acceptable... for a Kelvin movie. I think the problem is with them, as they supposed to be in the prime timeline and they look like they came from the Kelvin universe... it just doesn't fit. I know I might sounds like a bit of a downer now, but somehow I didn't get the "hype" out of this trailer. It looks serious, different and a tiny bit dark... maybe I just have to wait till the dust will settle around my feelings about this and see how will feel about it.
At this point I'm not really excited. Frankly I'm much hyped about The Orville than Discovery. That has a really good feel, unlike Discovery that has nothing to do with the Prime Timeline that the show suppossed to be. I will release a youtube review about this trailer when I will discuss the details a bit more in depth.... maybe I'll have a much more positive feeling about it after.
Before I go into the latest news analysis I have to apologise to my faithful followers here. I've been fairly busy sorting out things in my personal life and I've kind of neglected teh website. I know this is a pure hobby for me, but I feel responsible for this. Trekkerprise.com is a big achievement for me and it's the proud of my life, a channel where I can communicate my feeling about everything Star Trek and other geekiness that I feel passionate about. So I'm glad that previous chapter in my life is over now and I'm finally back here, where I belong. :)
"You have the bridge Number 1!"
Well, as I always state this in every Discovery discussion video on my youtube channel and here in teh website, I'm really looking forward to informations about the series itself. What will be the story? How those klingos will fit? What's up with Captain Lorca? These things interest me more at the moment... hopefully we will get some news on this from CBS. :) _\\//
Looks like our crew is coming together for the new Star Trek series, Discovery. Two ship so far; the Shenzou and the Discovery, will certainly have a role in the show - at least that's we know so far. We also have Klingons (?), Vulcans (Sarek) and other species. Lt Saru (played by Doug Jones) will represent a new alien race that we have never seen before, but what about Captain Lorca?
It has become quite clear now, Discovery will be a new and different show compare to the "core Trek" that we all love. So having an alien captain on the centre seat I believe is totally possible. We haven't got any information on the character yet, or what his role will be in the series, apart from him being a captain of the ship.
I wonder how many of youhave had the same idea about the new captain? Please let me know in the comment section below. Also, don't forget to checkout my YouTube channel for all the Star Trek Geekiness. :) _\\//
It's been a while since we had any news from CBS - apart from the casting news on Jason Isaac as Captain Lorca, the commanding officer of the Discovery which I will have a little article published soon - regarding the production of Star Trek Discovery. The anticipation towards the series is bigger than ever, with every fan theorizing about the show, about the ship and about the possibility of the new Klingon race too. The last few weeks I have had a little time to think about the news and the rumours and I thought I share these thoughts.
Klingons? Holy Sto'vo'kor!
Discovery and the Shenzou!
Since the test footage from the San Diego Comic Con we haven’t seen anything new about the "flagship" USS Discovery, nor from the other ship, the Shenzou. Well, the latest teaser trailer from CBS had a few shots over the Discovery and the other ship that still looks a bit distant from the era. Thos nacelles and the look of the ship just doesn't match the era of TOS. The design of the Discovery hasn’t really change much and personally I prefer that way. It was a design that they made back then, then was neglected, but certainly, it is a cool looking ship. I have to admit, at the beginning I had little reason to like it, but the more I have looked at it, it has begun to grow on me. Now, seeing it in the production trailer, Iam happy to see the ship. The other ship, that everyone thinks is the Shenzou... well, we will have to wait for more news on that I'm afraid.
As always, I think it's going to be a long wait until we will get to see the first episode. I'm sure this new series will have a connection with the "original" franchise, but it will have a different ending. There's a special feeling that comes with Star Trek and that is difficult to achieve. Even with Star Trek Beyond (which I consider so far to be the best of the Kelvin movies), it's hard to say that it’ll finallybe something that we will all love. I’ve always said that I had hoped for Discovery and this statement is still valid. I'm going to watch the series with an open mind, but for me Star Trek always will be that 5 live-action and 1 cartoon series! As long as they are there for us, I'm not even worried about Discovery! :)
BREAKING NEWS everybody! It's just been a few hour since they announced Jason Isaac as the Captain Lorca, the commanding officer of the USS Discovery. Jason is well known for Harry Potter fans as he played Lucius Malfoy. Personally I don't really know his work, but now he will get more attention from everyone that's for sure. As a captain of the Discovery he will follow the footsteps of Shatner, Stewart, Brooks, Mulgrew and Bakula. Although as a captain he will command the Discovery his role I don't think will be as significant as Sonequa's! She has been cast as the main character and from previous informations as I believe she will be the focus of the show.
Personally I hope this months we will get more news regarding the story itself, because personally I'm more curious about that now. We still talking about a Star Trek series that will be placed in the Prime Timeline and certainly a few things to mention here and there that raised my eyebrows... although I'm keeping my faith and hope for the new series. I'm not sure if I will make any video regarding this cast announcement on the channel, but make sure you subscribe and check out the Discovery segment, well as the other Star Trek related videos. I'll keep my eyes open, so if there's any news related to Discovery it will be here. _\\//
Finally, what do you think about this announcement? Please let me know in the comment section below.
Just about an hour ago there's been a picture around the internet that someone posted on social media. The person possibly working on the set of Star Trek Discovery and he took a big risk (and possibly his opportunity to be in the show in the future has gone now) posting a group of people as the new Klingons. Now hang on a second and look at that picture....
First of all (and I hate to say this) I was right about those uniforms that we saw in the trailer... they were Klingons. Second of all, my excitement now gone a little bit, because they look really creepy now. It's prime universe and that look is just nothing to do with the Klingons from the Kirk era. I think something really fishy going on here... but surely my excitement now started to decrease, not liek in the last video that I've made about the teaser trailer:
What do you think about this leaked picture? What do you think about the looks of these Klingons? Let me know in the comment section below. _\\//
This morning there was an official announcement about a new Star Trek Discovery logo that CBS just thrown out to the public, but in the afternoon something incredible happened: they dropped a video teaser as well. At the beginning I thought it's just an other "here's something" teaser that will tell us nothing. On the contrary... we got a fantastic teaser full with bits and pieces. Amazingly hinted uniforms, set photos and more. I've done a quick video catch up on the subject, but I'm working on a longer review for the weekend, so stick around. :)
This is certainly a good news and I'm super excited about the news as this is something now. The level of excitement that I experienced over watching the teaser is something amazing. I can't wait to see and read more about the production and share all of the details with you guys.

Looks like Star Trek Discovery has a lot to live up to. The new series was announced a good year ago and promised to be released in January 2017. For a long time, there weren't any cast announcement, just showrunners, executives and creative team... which is all fine, but no details about the story, no details about the progress. Last year we got bits and pieces only, till the news exploded: they delayed the show from January to May 2017. We said, ok, it's fine... more time to create a really good show. Than the showrunner left. They announced new characters, there has been issues about them too - I will talk about that in a different topic. And now we got another delay... but this time no date confirmed.
A tiny bit dissapointed... that's what I feel about the new show. I'm still looking forward to watch it and to be the part of it, but this news made me feel a tiny bit uncertain about the future of Star Trek. Fan productions has been cancelled because of the fan movie guide. Projects, like Axanar, been taken down by CBS... so it's not really a positive start. But I really hope at the end they will give us something and we will say: "Yes, that's the Star Trek I grew up with!" Am I dissapointed? Yes, but that's mainly because of the studio. Thank you CBS! :) Am I optimistic? Hell yeah! :) I'm optimistic about the series, looking forward to see something traditionally sexy and new. :) _\\//
While this character choice was a bit "late", I wouldn't consider a big role to his character in the series. As a secondary element on the show I can see him playing, but that's it really. I don't really now much about the actor himself, but I do know he will have to live up for a big role. The other characters has a much easier job in terms of playing, as they will be newcomers, but he will have to learn a lot to become Sarek. I believe we will have to wait and see. Do you like the choice of the actor for Sarek? Let me know in the comment section below. _\\//
The Best Is Yet to Come...
It's a bit too early yet to make a video announcement about this news as I'm still waiting for more information and I'm kind of specing out my theory about the show... I think now we have a little more information and it will be interesting to see if we will get any more news on casting. Still looking forward for more news about the story, the ship and more. This Sunday in my YouTube channel I will go into more details about the recent news and also going to share my theory about the series... soo, stay tuned. :) _\\//
