As we continue to count down the days until Star Trek: Discovery premieres – nearly two long years since its original announcement in November 2015 – CBS has released yet another new thirty-second promotional video for the series, with some brand new footage included.

Fortune favors the bold. #StarTrekDiscovery streams September 24 on CBS All Access.

A post shared by Star Trek Discovery (@startrekcbs) on

Included is an expanded bit of material from Michael Burnam’s (Sonequa Martin-Green) spacewalk, from her emergence and launch from the hull of the USS Shenzhou

…and her time floating about the Klingon obelisk vessel parked near the binary star pairing seen so often in these promos.

Back inside the ship, we also get a shot of the binary cluster from the Shenzhou viewscreen; note the navigator seen in previous shots of the bridge.

Flashing back to the show’s visit to the desert planet, see Captain Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh) using her Starfleet phaser rifle – with golden beam – towards something below her:

We also get to see some more from inside the USS Discovery, with Captain Lorca (Jason Isaacs) on the bridge — with Saru (Doug Jones):

…cadet Sylvia Tilly (Mary Wiseman) expressing her excitement over their current mission…

…and Lorca speaking to what appears to be a yet-unnamed Starfleet captain; note the rank stripes across the woman’s shoulders.

With the expected time jump between Burnham’s time on the Shenzhou and Discovery, we don’t see this as the commander of the ill-fated USS Europa, seen destroyed in prior trailer’s during Georgiou’s time in command of that ship – so we’re not sure what ship she might be captain of quite yet.

Finally, this new preview gives Lorca a bit of action, as the Discovery captain is seen sliding across a dark corridor wielding a phaser rifle of his own:

It’s not clear who – or what – he’s aiming at, but wearing that tactical vest you can be sure Lorca means business.

  • TUP

    Getting excited. Looks good. Lorca seems like the stand out to me from the footage we’ve seen.

    • M33

      I think stand out is the key phrase there.
      He steals every scene he is in, as any leading-actor-type would, yet he is not the leading role for the series.
      Interesting to see how the character dynamics play out as the series progresses.

      • DC Forever

        Hopefully, it will be like GOT — multiple leads, essentially.

        • M33

          Fair point, but the series has yet to have been presented to us in that way. So far, everything has been pitched as Burnham as the lead.

  • Thomas Elkins

    The bridge of the Discovery looks Sovereign-esque to me.

    • Pedro Ferreira

      That is not good.

  • Fiery Little One

    More stuff to chew on.

  • SpaceCadet

    I like the fact that the despite the plethora of footage released thus far, that we haven’t seen much or anything of a number of characters known to be in the series, the musical main theme, and not much of a reveal of the Discovery itself. The mystery factor about these elements only increase the level of anticipation for me in the pending premiere.

    • TUP

      Yes there is really a sense of mystery and interesting spoilers potentially.

    • Pedro Ferreira

      They seem to be so focused on promoting the diversity aspect they forget they need to actually show what the series is about.

      • SpaceCadet

        No. The people marketing the show have done an excellent job giving an idea of what the plot is about without revealing everything. And I’m happy for diversity. Glad the series is full of it. ☺️

        • Pedro Ferreira

          I have no idea what the plot is about. I’m glad you like diversity, so do I. However when that’s all you’re promoting it starts being political without any substance.

          • SpaceCadet

            Except that’s not all they’re promoting. Maybe you haven’t caught the half-dozen or so commercials and trailers where the characters don’t mention anything about diversity and rather they’re depicting a rousing adventure set against a backdrop of conflict between adversaries. Seriously, how could you have missed that?

          • Pedro Ferreira

            Every single post of Trekcore has had the cast promoting the diversity card so yeah I know what I’m talking about.

          • SpaceCadet

            False. Here’s one example:

            http://trekcore.com/blog/2017/08/interview-chatting-about-klingons-with-star-trek-discoverys-kenneth-mitchell-and-mary-chieffo/

            So no, apparently you don’t know what you’re talking about and you can quit harping on about it EVERY SINGLE TIME.

          • Pedro Ferreira

            Okay, nearly every single time.

  • SpaceCadet

    Not sure if this has been brought up on other threads already but I wonder if, aside from Kor, whether the other 23 major Klingon houses that are such a significant plot point will include the House of Mogh, Duras, Martok, Kang, or Koloth? It would be a fun way to tie more into TOS/TNG/DS9 canon, including a possible cameo by Michael Dorn who portrayed Worf’s grandfather in ST VI. But then again, they’d have to get into why the Klingons of “Discovery” look so different from the Klingons of all of those other series.

    • TUP

      Dorn was offered a role and declined. We can only assume it was a cameo as Mogh.

      • SpaceCadet

        Hmm, that’s too bad. I assume it was a money and/or not worth his time thing. But it would have been cool to see and also if Mogh’s appearance would have been consistent with TNG Klingon look or this latest reimagining.

        • TUP

          I dont recall any details coming out but my speculation is, they offered him a mere cameo (hologram scene of the Klingon houses conferencing) and salary commiserate with that role and he declined, wanting something more.

          But they could always re-visit the idea in later seasons.

          Doesnt the timeline not work out for “Mogh” to exist anyway, unless its Worf’s great grandfather.

          Worf’s father Mogh would be too young to be alive in the Cage era, no? I suppose as far as Klingon life spans go, he could be but I dont think its been established on screen.

          Col. Worf from TUC was considered to be Worf’s grandfather and looked fairly young in TUC. So in the time of the Cage, he’d be really young, if alive at all.

          If Worf’s family had a tradition of naming grandsons after grandfathers it might stand to reason that:

          Mogh
          Col. Worf
          Mogh
          Worf
          Alexander **

          • Eric Cheung

            K’Ehleyr named Alexander. Maybe her mother was named Alexandria?

          • JP

            Just make him Mogh. Who cares at this point?

          • TUP

            I’d care. It wouldnt be a deal breaker. But if Col. Worf is Mogh’s father then he must be a VERY youthful but very old Klingon. And Mogh waited a long time to have Worf.

          • JP

            Why would you care about that, but not about ships that are clearly more advanced than the ones that come after them?

          • TUP

            Because the visual look is not the same as the actual content. Sort of like Worf’s make up changing from season to season in TNG. He was still Worf but no one got heated over them making his prosthetic etc look different.

            If all the other Prime universe examples that pre-dated TOS showed us a visual style that made sense as a backwards evolution from TOS, then I’d say absolutely Discovery should adhere to that. But they dont.

            From the period of TOS backwards, we have the TOS look, Franklin, Enterprise NX & Kelvin. Of those four, which one looks out of place? TOS.

            So forgetting, for a moment, the marketing issues with using 60’s retro-future designs, to do so would actually contribute to the issue of conflicting visuals.

            TOS is the outlier now. From the limited visuals we’ve seen of the new series, it looks like a reasonable evolution from Franklin, Enterprise & Kelvin – all Prime Universe ships that, to varying degrees showed us tech and sensibilities beyond TOS.

          • JP

            It was a bad look to make the Kelvin futuristic as well, anything after that could easily be explained by the timelines. Franklin & NX Ent are arguably “more advanced” though I think they did a decent job of not overblowing it too much.

            Discovery would have been the perfect time to form connective tissue between the NX Ent. and NCC 1701.

            But, just like with new Klingons and Spock having a human sister, this show is not at all interested in anything that happened before. Which is a mysterious attitude for a show set in Trek’s past.

            It just boggles me… why not set it 50 years after Voyager where you can be as new and exciting and different as you want without having to deal with any of this?

        • Pedro Ferreira

          It’s possible he didn’t like the script.

    • AmiRami

      The Duras family was also done in ENT so I for one would be happy if they left it as is whith those characters.

      • SpaceCadet

        It would presumably be a different Duras generation and characters during the Discovery era and Trek fans like myself like the name recognition because it gives a clear antagonist to identify. And I haven’t seen that episode you’re referring to on ENT. While I know they did the Duras family I just have a hard time in general getting into that show.

        • AmiRami

          I’m fine with showing the Duras family in DSC I just don’t want the show to give the impreession that anything ever that happened to the empire that was important was either duras or mogh.

          There were a few ENT eps with Duras in seasosn 1-2, primarily around the empire putting a bounty on Archer’s head because “reasons”

  • Tom Cruise Never Phones It IN

    Looks like TFA

    • DC Forever

      You know, you lose credibility with obvious spam trolling posts like this. This article presents a new trailer, which is TOTALLY focused on EXPLORATION, with no weapons or combat. Not that I would expect you to acknowledge that given that this trailer INCONVENIENTLY presents DSC as the kind of exploration show that you have been calling for.; that does not fit with your constant barrage of negative trolling.

      FACT — it looks absolutely NOTHING like TFA. What an intellectually dead comment? Did you even watch the trailer, genius?

      PS: I am forced to report this to Trekcore as spamming. Sorry!

      • Your Worst Nightmare

        To put it in the simplest terms: haters gonna hate.

      • M33

        What is TFA?

        • Tom Cruise Never Phones It IN

          ? I will just say this looks like the star destroyer from it

          • M33

            Ahh… I understand the acronym now.

      • AmiRami

        Ya know its actually kinda funny when u think about it though. Discovery’s design came from one of the early concepts of the redesigned 1701 from Phase II and that design itself was inspired from a star wars star destroyer.

  • M33

    Why would Georgiou have to rack a 23rd century phaser rifle?
    I get the Hollywood effect, but that seems a little silly…

  • startrekker1701

    Had hoped Lorca would be British as per the actor 🙁

    • pittrek

      Well Sir Patrick played a Frenchman…

      • startrekker1701

        But clearly the United Kingdom had conquered the French Republic – hence the British accent 😛

  • Your Worst Nightmare

    I’m surprised to see no one has whined about Tilly(?) using the word “cool” yet.

    • mr joyce

      would have been funny if she said ‘shiny’ instead

  • GIBBS v2

    “This is so cool!”… That line kills me.

    I am pumped for this show but damn did that line smack badly of catering to a 2017 audience. What is next someone shouting “Awesome!”.

    • Your Worst Nightmare

      I think if they were catering to a 2017 audience, she might say “lit” as opposed to “cool.” :p

      • TUP

        hahaha exactly. Someone on another forum equated “cool” with “groovy” but its not even close to the same thing. Besides, we dont have context. Maybe Tilly is an oddball who likes to use out of style phrases.

        • Your Worst Nightmare

          If Tilly is an oddball, I would find that extremely endearing. I already think she’s adorable.

          But context? Come on, TUP! Context doesn’t matter when it doesn’t conform to TEH CANNON!

          Thou shalt only read Shakespeare!
          Thou shalt only listen to classical music!
          Thous shalt only quote Moby Dick!

          😉

          • M33

            And hey, look at Tom Paris. He was all about the 20th century!

          • Your Worst Nightmare

            That’s true! And I’m sure he used the word cool. But hey, let’s just let that go because I don’t like the fact that the bridge is so dark. Nevermind The Undiscovered Country, Generations, First Contact, Insurrection, Nemesis, Voyager…

            :p

          • M33

            2254 Pike’s bridge was darkly colored and dimly lit as well.

          • Your Worst Nightmare

            Amazing how that works, huh? 😉

      • M33

        Screw “cool”.
        If they want to be hip, I want them to look at an amazing life-changing stellar phenomenon and say:

        “That’s so sick…”

      • Locutus

        My nephew used the word “lit” the other day. Made me feel like an old geezer I had never heard it used that way before. It had a different meaning when I was young (intoxicated, not “cool”).

    • Eric Cheung

      “Cool” is a slang term that’s lasted for nearly eight decades at this point. I think it’s got a better chance at lasting to the 23rd century than some other slang words.

    • DC Forever

      TUC was the worst on that front. “Only Nixon could go to China” and Klingon’s quoting Shakespeare were kind of fun at the time, but in watching it now, that seems very dated and unnecessary.

      • Eric Cheung

        I don’t know. People still use “Nixon in China” as a metaphor. If it’s dated by the 23rd century, I don’t know. But it’s not exactly esoteric in the 21st century.

        Shakespeare likely won’t date in another two or three centuries if it’s failed to become anachronistic in more than four.

        • DC Forever

          But Vulcans and Klingons saying all that in the 23rd century? Really?

          I cringe now when I see those scenes. Plummer, with his minor makeup and those lines basically come across as a human in TUC — he’s unconvincing as an alien. Great acting though, nevertheless.

          • Eric Cheung

            There would be plenty of cultural cross-pollination when the galaxy becomes smaller, just as there was when our world got much much smaller over the past few hundred years. Listen to Bashir and Garak’s debates about the politics, literature, and theatre of various cultures, not just human and Cardassian.

            And in both cases, in Star Trek VI, the Earth references were sly critiques of Earth, exactly the reason it had to be aliens using them. With the Vulcan proverb, in-universe, it’s likely at least a little bit of a reference to the sometimes rocky past they’ve had with humans, and especially a reference to Earth’s own rocky pre-warp recent past (recent relative to Vulcans). With the Klingons, it had the same effect as when Nazis claimed the same thing about hearing Shakespeare in the original German.

          • DC Forever

            I get that. My opinion is that they took it too far though and now it makes it look dated. And they made TOS crew ALL OF A SUDDEN behave like old -fart racists; I never really bought into that.

          • TUP

            Ive seen this criticism of TUC before and I dont agree. To an extent, yes, they showed the TOS crew being a bit insensitive. But that was to further the plot.

            It also continued the theme of aging that began in WoK. This crew was from an era of open hostility with the Klingons. Which continued throughout the TOS films to a degree.

            Kirk was shown to be well deserving of his dislike of Klingons. And yet he still did his duty and his job. In fact he went above and beyond. And besides his verbal sparring at dinner, he was pretty professional. And his sparring came across more as a battle of wits then racist hostility.

            Chekov had a tough line – “Guess who’s coming to dinner” that could be seen as a bit too on the nose. But we also have no way of knowing if he meant it as a racial slight. WE take it that way. And thats the point. His line at dinner about “inalienable human rights” was a great line. He CLEARLY didn’t mean it in a bigoted way. He meant it in a GOOD way, that he was extending the same rights to Klingons as he would expect for himself.

            It was delivered to show us that even though our heroes mean well, even they are not immune to missing the full understanding of a species they have been raised, trained and used to disliking.

            The worst bigoted lines were given to non-starring crew members to illustrate the differences between insensitivity and outright racism.

            And in the end, our heroes are able to understand their own stubbornness and fears. When you consider the end of TUC to be our heroes standing with the Klingons, its a nice book-end to the entire TOS journey.

          • M33

            “speciesists” not “racists”.
            But Kirk had pent up resentment from his encounters with the Klingons, especially with the killing of his son.
            When every Klingon he met was out to kill him or those he protected, it is only natural for him to have that sort of view.
            Would once try to keep an open mind about the Borg, or the Hirogen, or others who only show you that they mean you harm at ever encounter?
            Not to say that it is enlightened, but it is understandable.

          • Matineer

            Remember Spock’s line in TOS: “I pride myself on my knowledge of your Earth’s history.” Spock would know that. And people under thirty who took history in school should know it too. The thaw in US/China relations is a major historical event.

          • DC Forever

            I disagree. 150 years from now that will be a minor event.

          • The Science Fiction Oracle

            I doubt it. It’s like today if someone tried to make an analogy in conversation about a key point of the War of 1812 — people simply would not get it.

          • TUP

            Only Nixon is not nearly as ubiquitous as “cool” is to the general public. While not many under 30 would get it, ask 10 people over 60 if they understand “cool” and they bet they all do.

            I read somewhere its actually been in use for 100 years. Some of us remember Fonzie and immediately think of that but thats not true to everyone and it was in use long before Happy Days.

            Specific to “Nixon”, Spock isn’t under 30 and of a certain intellectual level. As a student of Earth history and someone adept in politics, its not out of the realm of reasonable that he’d know the term.

            Keep in mind, he didn’t say the line to us, he said it to Kirk (if I recall), to convey a message. Kirk is his friend, also somewhat of a historian. Spock chose a line that Kirk would understand. Its not like Spock was using the line all over the place (or incorrectly or oddly, as he was with swears in TVH). The line had a specific purpose between two people who both understood its meaning.

          • DC Forever

            “While not many under 30 would get it, ask 10 people over 60 if they understand “cool” and they bet they all do.”

            That is kind of my point. If it’s already becoming unknown to those under 30, I seriously doubt it would be used 150 years from now. It’s dying out.

            It’s as awkward as having Spock say, “Dewey defeats Truman” in reference to a upset victory in the 23rd century.

          • TUP

            Cool isnt dying out at all. i was referring to your point about “Only Nixon…”. “Cool” has a much wider penetration than a political phrase.

          • DC Forever

            Agreed. I was talking about the Nixon comment

        • TUP

          I agree. I knew the “cool” line would ruffle some feathers. But the idea words that are pretty common now would be replaced because “FUTURE” is sort of the same idea of saying by the year 1990 we will have supermen and sleeper ships.

          We expect the future to be completely different when we’re the same, more or less.

          I have no idea if “cool” will be a word or not in 200 years. But there are plenty of examples of other “modern” words and phrases being used throughout Star Trek so Im not sure why “cool” would be particularly bothersome.

          • M33

            Maybe if they had said “space-cool” instead, you know, to make it futuristic…

            j/k

          • GIBBS v2

            It just sort felt like the youngest actress/part winking at potential teenage audience members (pssst this show is hip you should watch it).

            She may be the Doctor Who companion, the one that represents the audience also gobsmacked by the wonders of the universe.

            Who knows maybe she is like Tom Paris is digs old school.

      Y’know how Doctor Who wanted to cater to audiences back in 1988? One word: Begins with ‘w’ and ends in ‘d’.

  • DC Forever

    Boldly exploring — I love this trailer. Best trailer so far, by a long shot.

  • JP

    Are we really supposed to believe that these ships and suits came just BEFORE Kirk’s era? In the original timeline?

    Weird Klingons aside… that seems a bit too counter-intuitive to swallow, doesn’t it?? 2+2=5 I guess.

    I wish so badly those were the exact sets and suits set 50 years after Voyager. So we could see some, you know… strange NEW worlds. Man would I be excited.

    Can’t get over it, sorry.

    • TUP

      Ummmm yes. This would be a great post if it was made a year ago. No disrespect intended. But we have to get past this. Its a visual do-over. Its taking the general look of Franklin, Enterprise NX & Kelvin and moving forward. To mimic the look of the 1960’s would serve no one well.

      This was the right decision.

      • JP

        Yeah, I realize I’m adding nothing new. Every time I see new previews, the same thoughts come back to me. It’s just very hard to tell myself 2+2=5. I keep wanting it to be different but yes – what’s done is done.

        • Tom Cruise Never Phones It IN

          Dont worry, tup isn’t adding anything new either

          • TUP

            Your reply was literally only an insult towards me. Was it meant to be irony or merely an expose on your lack of intelligence?

    • AmiRami

      To be fair the communicators and phasers look practically spot on. Sure this doesn’t look like a TOS era show but it really can’t. Not only was TOS made in 66 it was made with jelly beans for buttons. The visuals of that show look ridiculous compared to an iPad let alone tech from the 23rd century,

      Having said that I wish the uniforms were more in line with TOS but something tells me Paramount forbade that since thats what JJ Trek has.

    • So it does not look like 1966? Only a few people thought it was gonna look old and campy. This looks like ENT style TOS era.

      • JP

        We probably have different recollections (though we could both just search images) but this looks a lot more futuristic than ENT. ENT purposely went for a “submarine” motif and aside from the color scheme isn’t really all that different from the 1701.

        If you showed me a screenshot from the article above and said “This is the Trek series set 50 years after Voyager” I would have no problem believing it (and probably be excited).

        • Well, it is a hundred years after ENt, so it should look more futuristic than ENT. You are looking at ENT styling moved forward. Not 1966 kept looking like 1966. That is the issues you guys have, you want it to look old and that was never gonna happen.

          • JP

            Then what is the point of setting it in the Trek past, if it’s not going to be consistent with the look of the past or the story of the past?

          • This is the Era they wanted to explore. ENT changed the way the past looks, its no longer 1966, so its not gonna look 1966. Trek itself updated its look at lest twice, so that is a minor thing in the long run.

          • JP

            ENT established the way the past looked before the founding of the Federation, it didn’t change anything of significance that was already established. Season 4 did a lot to create fantastic connective tissue (in a compelling way) with ENT and TOS (including the look of Klingons between eras, which itself is being discarded).

            Rather than continue that trend of connecting the past with the future, Discovery just wants to be its own anomoly for some unexplained reason.

            Why did they want to explore this era? It certainly isn’t because they enjoyed the look and the events – those are being changed to their own tastes regardless of what has already been established.

          • It changed what the past looked like, peroid. It no longer looks like the 1960’s. And the augment stupidty was IMO the worse storyline in trek, ever. Pure fanwank based off a joke.

            DSC is connecting with the past and doing it well. You just happen not to like the fact it does not look old.

          • JP

            The pre-Federation era was never depicted before, there was nothing to change. Ironically, you’re trying to position other series as “changing” the past and Discovery as the one attempting to connect with it. There’s no amount of logic I can summon to dissuade you of that, I realize now.

            But hey, check out what the Enterprise looked like when it was shown in 1996. They managed to stay consistent… incredible, right!?

            Or how ENT showed that era in 2005… looks remarkably consistent to me!

            Discovery is the outlier, to argue otherwise is silly.

          • 1: pre fedration should not look more advanced and it did. ENT looks far, far more advanced than the clear 1960s TOS

            2: You are showing to fanwznk homage episodes.

            Other than flat panels instead of raised knobs, I’m not sure how ENT did what you said it did.
            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/878667657590ee43eb1c6f40b3180b69ce62ea0934b655dc6c60d175ceb5c0c0.jpg

            Heck, they were still wearing baseball hats… But the “look” is ultimately subjective, and since they didn’t make the ship any more functional than 1701 as far as story goes (it was very much less functional), they were admirably consistent in that regard.

            However, we do have established canon of TOS era being depicted accurately. You can write them off as you like, but clearly there is no reason not to be accurate to Trek “history” other than a simple desire not to be. And Discovery doesn’t even have the excuse of ENT in the sense that ENT was a ways out from TOS… Discovery is supposed to be pretty immediately before it. You just need to decide that 2+2=5 in your head, for no reason other than the whims of the show creators.

            Which again begs the question – given all of this, why choose a prequel and paint yourself into corners like this? Set the show 50 years after Voyager, back to when we can explore strange *NEW* worlds, and none of it is an issue.

            One bad decision leads to another. It’s going to have to have great writing and acting to recover from the handicaps it placed onto itself at the start.

          • 1: if you can not tell how ENT looks more advanced, nothing I or anyone can say will every explain it to you.

            2: Visual are not and never have been canon. That whole concept is a fan creation.

            3: Why not choose this era? Its never been explored and there is no reason not to do it.

          • JP

            So you concede that ENT is not actually more advanced, you just think it “looks” that way. You can’t point to anything specific, despite your premise suggesting it should be easy to do. Fine.

            The reason not to choose this era has been hashed out to death in this conversation alone. You end up having to 1) choose to be constrained by established canon or 2) choose to ignore it (Spock’s sister, tech exceding prior tech, etc). Why force that decision – to what benefit? You end up splitting the fanbase for no reason at all – the whole timeline is your oyster, why choose an era that invites division?

            Set the show 50 years in the future (past Voy) and there are *zero* constraints on the imagination, and all of Trekdom is giddy with excitement. It’s obvious, and only a fanboy/girl would refuse to acknowledge that, which means there’s no point continuing to talk.

            Let’s agree we hope the show is a great show, concerns aside 🙂

          • It is clearly more advanced than TOS, this is not even a debate with its 1960’s look. You put those two sets in front of anyone and ask which is the more advanced and they will pick ENT every single time.

            This era has never been touched, Fancanon and non-canon books and such are not this era. This era has nothing about it other than TOS, its wide open and many folks want to see this era.

            If its not your cupa its not your cuppa.

            Shannon can I ask why do you have trouble accepting visual continuity as objects or design that appears on screen. They are the same thing.

          • SpaceCadet

            She’s blocked you because she found you annoying and doesn’t see your posts.

          • Pedro Ferreira

            Fair enough, that’s her choice.

          • Pedro Ferreira

            Hollywood currently loves prequels and some of the users here can’t get enough of them for some reason.

          • Pedro Ferreira

            Those ‘fanwznk’ episodes are canon and should be taken into account so JP has some very good points.

          • Pedro Ferreira

            From talking to Shannon she doesn’t admire the look of TOS, she feels it’s very camp and outdated which is ironic as Discovery will date worse. I point to quality fan films that are made and she says they’re all rubbish.

        • Pedro Ferreira

          Yeah that’s what I don’t think Shannon gets. The problem is the visual continuity not helped by the style of directing, the awful picture quality doesn’t convince the audience this is a prequel to TOS or even a sequel to Enterprise.

    • Pedro Ferreira

      I know, it just doesn’t make any sense.

  • Space Gaz

    Only a few more sleeps till The Orville begins. Can’t wait, it looks amazing.

    • Tom Cruise Never Phones It IN

      Looks more true to Trek than Discovery

  • Pedro Ferreira

    Yeah still not convinced by the production of the whole thing.
