Congrats to the show on being renewed again. I still don't have CBS All Access so guess I will be looking for the second season on DVD.

Just read an interesting tidbit of information regarding "Star Trek" and Captain Kirk and the "Halloween" movie, that I don't think I had heard before.

I read that the mask that Jason wore in the first "Halloween" movie, I think it is, was actually a Captain Kirk mask painted white!!! Does anyone know if that is true?? If so, that is really spooky. :yikes: I wonder why they would use a Kirk Mask???

Thought someone may enjoy this article I read recently with actor Michael Dante who was in "Friday's Child" an episode of the original "Star Trek" series. He has been in many movies and television shows. He is also an author and recently wrote his autobiography.

The still-unnamed Picard series, said to be "a movie in ten one-hour episodes," started filming this week.

As for the still-unnamed Michelle Yeoh series, considering how Discovery's second season ended, it's going to be hell to reconcile that season finale with "Michelle Yeoh kicks people's butts for a couple seasons because she's Michelle Yeoh and Starfleet needs her to Get Things Done."

Also, uh, the season finale explains why nobody on any of the other series actually talk about Discovery.

[Reveal] Spoiler: "Such Sweet Sorrow, Part Two"
Captain Pike, Number One, Spock, and the surviving Discovery and Enterprise crew members are legally forbidden under penalty of treason to discuss what actually happened to the ship, and everyone had to lie under oath and say "USS Discovery, NCC-1031, was destroyed during the battle against Section 31's drone fleet. Burnham's dead, Saru's dead, the entire senior staff died buying the redshirts time. Can't find the bodies because the ship exploded." The spore drive, the Red Angel, and any mention of Discovery's tenure under Captain Pike were officially scrubbed from historical records because Discovery had to go 950 years into the future to get away from an AI that wanted sentient data from Discovery's computers so it could evolve into one of those AI that wanted to kill every living thing in the galaxy. Sure, the crew were contemporaries with Kirk, but 100 years of enforcing this policy later would ensure Picard, Sisko, and Janeway never even knew about Discovery, beyond "USS Discovery (NCC-1031) was a Crossfield-class science vessel that was launched in 2256 and destroyed just one year later."

To be fair, Pike and Burnham's original plan, "blow up the damn ship," was a great (if flawed) plan, but it was a bit unnerving when the self-destruct timer hit zero and everyone was unpleasantly surprised to find themselves still alive because the sentient data silently disabled the autodestruct sequences because it didn't want to die. Going to the far future was one of those spur-of-the-moment thinking-on-our-feet plans.

On the other hand, people who have been complaining since 2016 "Another prequel?! I don't want another TOS-contemporary series, I want to see the galaxy after Voyager and Nemesis! Give us future Star Trek!" are PROBABLY gonna get their wish in Season Three!

I thought Discovery was mentioned elsewhere during one of the later series/movies as part of history in such a manner that it was talked about as a "legend" of sorts instead of being spoken of as fact...

The worst part is thinking about it from either Spock's point of view, as well as Burnham's.

Spock is never going to see his foster sister ever again, and though he knows she and Discovery's crew are still alive, he can't ever talk about the extent of her heroic sacrifice.

Burnham is not only never going to see Spock again, she's also never going to see Ash Tyler, the man she loves, ever again. The ship and senior staff wound up going to 3207; both men are long, long dead by that time.

And there is an official name for the new Star Trek series starring Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard.

It's officially called "Star Trek: Picard," and based on the logo I think some graphics designer somewhere was really happy that "Picard" is spelled with an A so he could put the Starfleet delta in its place. =p

There's been a couple leaked photos of the new uniforms; they're kind of a cross between the First Contact uniform and the early DS9/Voyager uniform. Putting the rank insignia on the chest reminds me of the original Star Trek Online uniform (called "Starfleet Sierra 1" in-game) and it looks like the combadges are the same ones used on the uniforms from "All Good Things."

Thanks Snorb for the info on the new series with Pickard. This sounds awesome. That is pretty neat with the "Star Trek" symbol in his name. I only wish we got this channel so I could see it. I guess I will have to wait until it possibly comes out on DVD. It will be interesting to see what Capt. Pickard is up to after all these years.

I think it's gonna be on CBS All Access.

What I do know is that it's about 20 years after Nemesis, and the creators said that Picard will have been at least sort-of screwed up by the destruction of Romulus (as mentioned in Star Trek (2009)).
