  • Countdown to Star Trek: Discovery – 1 day to go

    One more sleep until a new Star Trek TV series premieres. The last time I could say that was September 2001, 16 years ago. (It was 21 years between the premieres of TOS and TNG, so it’s not a record). The early reviews (or to be more accurate, the headlines of the early reviews as […]

    In the biggest news yet, there’s an actual trailer for Star Trek: Discovery This looks to be pretty early (maybe first episode or two only) material. And there’s a lot to be optimistic about.

    Another sliver of news, this time [casting for a lead]( Star Trek: Discovery has finally found its Number One: Sonequa Martin-Green. […] She’s Lieutenant Commander Rainsford Another actor I’m not very familiar with (geek confession: I don’t watch *The Walking Dead*, it’s just never appealed very much to me). I think the idea of not […]

    More [news](, this time a bit more worrying.
