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! :)
