      Memorial Announcement for Gear of Troll Kingdom   04/02/2018

      As far as I'm aware he wasn't a member but some members of this board crossed over. Khas has told me he died of cancer, and regardless what community he will be missed.

      PLEASE READ - tagging me on Facebook and my retirement   04/09/2018

      It has come to my attention that I'm being tagged on Facebook posts by members of ASVS including the administration and moderatorship here. As I use that Facebook profile strictly for professional development...I have to request that you guys stop. I'm not kidding when I say it might become a serious liability, especially since I work in an industry extremely sensitive to things we joke about here. And with that, it has also come to my attention that the entire Commander RayCav persona has also become a liability towards my continued professional development - and so as of this moment I've decided to permanently retire it. I'm shutting this account down and I'm surrendering all moderatorship and administratorship responsibilities and privileges. I'll reregister under a new name as a regular member.

Star Trek: Discovery - Official Trailer

Recommended Posts

Well, folks, it's out! The visuals look absolutely gorgeous, the acting seems adequate. Unfortunately, I see some problems here. The look is very Kelvin Timeline, and CBS insisted this will be a Prime Universe show. The tech more closely resembles a 29th century timeship than a 23rd century deep space vessel. The Klingons do not look right at all. According to canon, the smooth heads should be dominant now. Unless of course these are some ancient throwbacks.
I really am rooting for this show, and I desperately want it to be good. I'm of course going to give it a chance, but I get a bad initial vibe from it. I'm looking forward to seeing more.

 

Here's the link to the official release trailer - http://www.cbs.com/shows/star-trek-discovery/video/LeDfVOm_JkJcYJF9ju2izuFJBnF_qJsG/star-trek-discovery-first-look-trailer/

 

For those of you outside of North America (Or possibly even just the US) I downloaded it at put it on my Google Drive. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8-ZdhavfgRzb1g5WG9ZbWdMRGc/view

Actually, according to the (admittedly non-canon) novels detailing TOS and "The Lost Era" (everything between Star Trek VI and "Encounter at Farpoint"), not all Klingons were affected by the virus, with the "HemQuch" and "QuchHa'" sub-species: the HemQuch were those who retained their head ridges, while the QuchHa' were those who lost theirs.  Maybe that will finally become canon now.

They have a release date now. September 24th. I'm anxious to see how it does.

They just dropped a new trailer. This looks promising. Stylistically it looks like it belongs in the Kelvin timeline, but CBS has been adamant that it's part of the Prime Universe.

Looks nice.  Not sure how I feel about the Klingons being bald, but it could be a crew who shaved their heads as a way of showing off that they still had ridges.  Sort of a "pride at being unaltered" thing.

From what I understand, they're supposed to be a different race of Klingon. Sort of how an alien observer might view the contrast between an African and an Irishman.

I'm starting to get really excited about this series. I haven't subbed to CBS All Access yet, but I plan on getting the yearly no commercials package as soon as this comes out.
