Star Trek: Discovery - Series 1 and tie-in media discussion (spoilers abound)


IIRC, that also showed up in the Debt of Honor graphic novel.



Was coming to post this :slight_smile:


He’s about the same age as Quinto was in the 09 movie, even though this is about a decade earlier, but I guess Vulcans age weird.


They do!

Vulcans age (depending on sources) 2 to 3 times SLOWER than humans.

I think (from the official pictures) that he looks Spock-like.

However I don’t care about the physical resemblance, it’s all about the performance and that’s not just the actors, it’s the producers/showrunners

Selfishly, I hope they view Vulcans the way I do,

We’ll see?


I like that he’s Gregory Peck’s grandson. Hopefully he inherited some gravitas. And an arching eyebrow.


Recently saw Peck in The Omen and Moby Dick. Hopefully the cragginess will kick in. It sure did with Nimoy!


Love that Peck appeared in Patrick Stewart’s Moby Dick as Father Mapple.


Oddly, Star Trek is set in 2253, and Discovery is set in 2256. In the Kelvin timeline Kirk goes straight from Academy to the Enterprise, while in the Prime timeline he goes to OCS, then serves on the Farragut, one or two more ships, and then is promoted to captain and given Enterprise.


Ah, that’s right. The Kirk getting the Enterprise early stuff always screws me up, timeline-wise.



Here’s an old man story for you Miqque. They filmed part of Moby Dick off the West Wales coast and the town of Fishguard where my great uncle ran a tailors. Peck came in to be fitted for a new suit and a photo of the pair of them had pride of place in the shop.

This was nearly two decades before I was born but growing up my grandparents would always watch any Gregory Peck film that came on TV and remind me ‘uncle Dai says he’s a very nice man’.

I wonder if these will be out on Netflix here when they premiere. That’s how it was with the first Discovery season.


Doesn’t sound too promising for the rest of the world either as I got the show on Netflix the same time as the UK.


That’s a bit of a bugger, I was looking forward to those.


If they don’t have any legal broadcast then I’m off to the torrentmobile.


Well, shit.


That’s shite
