The including of numbers from the space shuttle were especially dumb.

Calculating operating costs of an unrealized technology in a post-scarcity future with an undefined economic model is especially dumb.

Could we simplify matters by pointing out what wasn't dumb? ;)

A company figuring out a legit way to plaster a photo of the Enterprise on the front of their website the day before the movie comes out?

Come back in the fall for "How much it costs to maintain an X-Wing."

They should have made something about pokemon go. Maybe say tribbles are like pokemon. Much more clicks/likes etc.

I was just wondering how much it would cost to build and maintain my own Pokémon gym.

Saw the teaser trailer. The USS Discovery is right out of ST Phase II. That bodes well for geek cred.

Gotta say, in the pictures shown thus far, the ship looks terrible. It looks like someone mindlessly slapped a saucer section onto a Klingon Bird of Prey. I get that the inspiration is from that artist dude whose name I can't remember and who otherwise draws cool human waste, but, really, the ship right now looks like something nerdy 7th graders would draw when they're not busy drawing penises.

What "D" are you asking about?

One is the Enterprise NCC-1701-D from The Next Generation.

They secretly loved the D then, they were just too afraid to admit it to themselves. ;)

small update: the show is apparently going to have a female lead -- but she won't be a captain

a bit interesting ... maybe a diplomat? or an admiral? hard to say

also, it seems to be set around 10 years before the original series, which places it between enterprise and the original series

finally, spocks mum is slated for an appearance

This should be interesting. Sounds like it may be more like DS-9.

Will the female lead like the D?

(Okay, I'm not over the ship yet.)

okay, we have some news ... the female lead is her:

Image

recognize her? think walking dead (her name is Sonequa Martin-Green) ... her character hasn't been killed off yet, but that's not a series that's exactly married to its characters

she's going to play a lieutenant-commander aboard the starship shenzhou

also on the crew is michelle yeoh and a chap named anthony rapp, who will play the first openly gay character in the history of star trek (i'm not counting that sulu nonsense in the latest trek movie)

star trek: discovery starts shooting in a few weeks here in the toronto area, and i can tell you it's generating a ton of buzz in the film community

She's also playing the main character. I'm excited - the cast sounds fantastic.
TOS, you need to sneak onto the set and get yourself an extra gig.

update: they've named the captain (jason issacs)

he's got over 100 credits to his name, you'll be sure to recognize his face

among his roles: one of the officers in blackhawk down, and the evil cavalry officer in patriot

anyway an interesting choice to be sure
obvs There. I said it.
