In the television department, CBS has revealed the first image from their new STAR TREK: DISCOVERY series showing Michelle Yeoh, playing a captain of a starship, and lead star Sonequa Martin Green who plays a commander of the Discovery helmed by Jason Isaacs. Set before the original series, the series will air sometime later this year. Maybe"


Looks like Star Wars… (smile)

May the Federation be with you…..

Yep… someone working on reshoots for 'The Last Jedi' is probably frantically searching for Daisy Ridley's costume about now…

Their outfits remind me a little of the Vilani styles of dress from the "Vilani and Vargr" Megatraveller supplement.

Maybe a bit of wrath of Khan.

The more a hear, the less I like.

I do like that communicator that Sonequa has on her belt – looks similar to the design from "The Cage". Also looks like a tricorder – or scanner – on the opposite side…

Just watched the 1st trailer, looks good from a production point of view.

I'd be much more comfortable with this show if they actually were to broadcast it, rather than use their idiotic streaming service.

That, and if they hadn't canned the showrunner who actually loved Trek, and allowed the "Enterpise-killing" network-head to micromanage it.

Very bad feeling about all this. I can't shake a vision of PC drivel with really excellent production values, which is the current default setting.

Fortunately, the supply of good old stuff is vast. I watched William Powell in The Kennel Murder Case last night, and read a James Warner Bellah western short story this morning. 84 and 70 years old, respectively, and both new to me.

Not to worry, I'm sure the production values will quickly drop, as they frequently do.

Yup, just from that picture they are going to slam Social Justice right down our throats.

Not sure if I will watch it.

Which race it this…?


Are those Federation uniforms…?

Don't forget CPT Janeway of Voyager. She was a mix of Kirk, Picard and Sigorney Weaver. She kicked alien Butt ! And so did Janeway !

So if new Trek has a little PC going on … maybe ? I don't really know ? Or care IF the series is "good" … ?

Be careful guys, there are many of those types who would find that "offensive" "lurking" about on TMP.

They might even be upset I said, "Kick alien Butt !" … They may think that would be offensive to "aliens", i.e. ETs, EIs, etc. …
