    Looks like work has begun on the series!



    A quick rundown of the non-Patrick Stewart people in that photo...

    Kirsten Beyer has been in charge of the Voyager Relaunch novel series since 2008, when she took over from Christie Golden. She has written 10 novels in that series, and is currently a staff writer on Star Trek: Discovery, where she has written one episode ("Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum").

    Michael Chabon is an American writer with 8 novels and 32 awards to his name

    Akiva Goldsman is a TV and film producer, with credits (as producer) on Deep Blue Sea, Constantine, I Am Legend, Fringe, and Star Trek: Discovery. He's also credit as writer (or screenplay/teleplay writer) on Batman & Robin (just trying to be balanced here), Practical Magic, A Beautiful Mind, Cinderella Man, a dozen episodes of Fringe, The Dark Tower, and two episodes of Star Trek: Discovery.

    Diandra Pendleton-Thompson is relatively new to the game, working as a writer's assistant and PA for CBS Television.

    James Duff is a TV writer/producer. He wrote one episode of Star Trek: Enterprise ("Fortunate Son"), and is the creator/executive producer of the TV series The Closer and Major Crimes, where he has also written a number of episodes.

    Updates from NYCC!

    • The plan is for it to be an ongoing show, with plans for multiple seasons — not just a one-off
    • The writers’ room is up and running, and has been working for about four weeks now
    • Kurtzman teased the audience by asking ‘who wants to know who the bad guy will be?’ and then refusing to discuss who it might be
    • The Picard show “will not mesh into this season [of Discovery], that will be its own thing.”
    • Production is expected to begin in April of next year
    • No talk of release date yet, but speculation is that because that’s around the same time Discovery begins its production cycle, debut may be early 2020

    So they are basing the whole Picard show around a bad guy, really guys and girls you got no better ideas than that, none at all, four of the last films and STD have all been base around bad guys, can't we have something new and original, like Picard, now long since left starfleet going on a treasure hunt for example, let see the archeologist in him. Let see how the Federation and this world function when you aren't a captain of one of the most powerful ships in the quadrant.

    Kirsten Beyer had some interesting ideas in her novels that didn't involve bad guys, let use those ideas instead, pretty please, pretty please with a bowl full of cherries and chocolate.

    The fact that he didn't reveal a bad guy doesn't completely confirm the notion that there definitely is one. However all that being said I think that's just how TV works now. The fact that tv just isn't an episodic medium any more means that there's a greater need for a central villain that needs to be overcome. There needs to be that "Just one more" hook that you get in Netflix shows at the end of every episode and that's difficult to achieve without a central antagonist. Or in the case of some shows, multiple antagonists (looking at you Game of Thrones)

    It wouldn't be Star Trek fandom if someone wasn't whining before there were even any confirmed details.

    I think the phenomenon expands to science fiction in general. How many times in the old days did people complain about the smallest Stargate detail?

    Which I always found funny considering how Stargate may actually be the worst modern sci-fi show for its own consistency.

    Good that they're keeping in mind how the old shows worked best. The shows should all feel unique which I think is something they lost sight of in late Voyager and early Enterprise.

    Yes...I hate this. I can get it at a discount since I'm an Amazon Prime member, but I don't want to watch the show on my PC or laptop.

    They are trying to use the Trek franchise to bootstrap the launch of their new pay tv service, CBS All Access, so it may be several years before we see home releases.
    Ummm...Discovery is on my wishlist queue on Amazon. I think it comes out next month.

    *edit* it releases 11/13/2018

    Thanks I didn't expect it that early.

    I don't give Amazon wish lists or anything, I don't want them to jack the price up 'cause they know I want it.

    *yes, I have seen different prices on things depending upon whether I had viewed it while logged in or not.

    Yes...I have HDMI ports on my laptop, desktop, and TV. What it boils down to is paying for something else.

    Discovery's BD release was announced back in August....

    Actors have lied before, multiple times.
    .
    Again: what? Viacom only holds the rights to release films, while CBS holds the rights to create and broadcast TV series.
    Which is why we got the mess of having the films and the tv show set in completely different universe.

    If the two firms merge together, the trek universe will be reunited under a single entity again and we can start sorting out the mess left by JJ Abrams and the discovery guys.

    I call it feedback before delivering unoriginal **** to our screens again. Which they keep on doing because they keep on failing to listen to the fans. They should come up with a story that doesn't involve bad guys or even bad aliens, there more to the star trek universe than that.

    I remember the ending shot from some piece of Trek, I forget which, but at the end of the show/movie/whatever is a scene from the distant future, where an "Enterprise" is setting out on a journey to a distant galaxy. That's what I'd like to see. Exploration of the future.

    We've already had prequels galore, that's all they seem to be interested in creating. Move along already!

    You call it unoriginal but frankly I find Disco highly original. While the last JJ film was one of the best Star Trek films made. They have already confirmed that what ever shows they do will each have their own unique take and feel which is more than I can say for what they did with Voyager and Enterprise.

    That shot never existed. You may be thinking of the bit in Enterprise where Archer gets taken to the future to see the Enterprise J but that was in the middle of a battle.

    Since I can't remember the details, I'm not entirely sure, but I suppose that could have been it.
