So basically the Federation is under attack by an alien race which concentrating on destorying dilithium mining planets, and they are also looking for the Iconian device which is causing problems. So Starfleet gather together... well they been together already aboard the Starphip Icarus, which I personally didn't really like the design of. It's not really a Starfleet standard, but I guess it's doesn't matter as long as we are in a "space-spy-movie". It looked like an "unfinished" Prometheus class starship with it's four nacelles. :) The USS Archer at the other hand was a strong ship, I really like the design of that one. Quite like an Ambassador and a Sovereign together. It's certainly an interesting design. Personally I think the story was good. Seeing the Federation from a different perspective it's interesting as always and I'm sure the team behind the show felt the same way as I did... excited and curious. It's an interesting theme as we all imagine Starfleet and the Federation as an idealistic place, but deep down I'm sure it has it's own problems what requires different solutions. Maybe that's where Bryan Fuller want to take Discovery as well... we will see.
What about the villain?
My final thoughts...
Apart from the fact as the movie has some really big name behind the scenes I have to say I'm still a bit mixed. Obviously I loved it because of the actors who I grew up with - in a sense of watching them through years and years on the TV - is a big point in this case. The "look" of the movie implies a different era of the Federation what I can totally see happening as well. The Section 31 plot is also interesting, in my opinion is a must see for every Star Trek fan. As a fan production I still more like the way of how Star Trek Continues goes along and keeping the feel and the look of the original series. But not end this article with my words... let me know what do you think. ;)
Live long and prosper. _\\//
Yesterday evening I've got the news as a member of the Star Trek Family has passed away. Mr Barry Jenner who played Admiral William Ross in Deep Space Nine died in August 9th, 2016 from myeloid leukemia at the age of 75. His persona was unique during the series. As an admiral he was more friendly then the others. Also he had this secret side when Doctor Bashir find out the connection between him and the Section 31... what a days, what an episode. :) He had recurring roles in Dallas, Walker the Texas Ranger and many other TV series apart from Star Trek.
He will be truly missed! My condolences with his family and friends. Rest In Peace Admiral.
There was a time when the official Star Trek related DVD's were just way too much to buy with minimum wage... but I've got lucky though... also had a graphic designer degree in my side pocket, so I've started to do my own little "special edition" of The Original Series DVD version. I was working on this idea for quite a long time as I wanted to create something what looks like the original release, but still there's some little extra bits and pieces what makes them unique, makes them "mine". :) I did them only for entertaining myself as I'm a quite obsessed Star Trek fan. :) This was the first and then it followed the Enterprise and also the Voyager.... well, Voyager was a bit bigger project as I had to design for 7 case, but the final product was more then pleasant. :) I'll make sure I'll upload some pictures from those ones as well.
The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine ones are still in progress... still, after all those years. :( I hope you like this little showreel. There will be more coming to the site... lately I've got quite busy with work and the YouTube project what I'm working on every week. But this website was my first big project and one day it will go where no website has gone before. ;)
Live Long and Prosper _\\//
