Meanwhile, that fourth Kelvinverse film the cast didn’t know they were making… isn’t being made anymore. Looks like, as with SW, the future of Trek is solely televisual for the time being.

Lore! Moriarty! Someone else who wants to kill Picard and destroy the Earth and doesn’t care in which order! Played by Amanda Plummer who in old age - or just makeup - looks like Fred Ward now! Wants revenge against Picard. So what do we reckon? Some resuscitated/rejigged plotline from TNG, or yet another bit of excessive back history creation a la PIC s2?

Okay, uh, I didn't realized when I posted that there was a new trailer out & now I feel stupid, but also angry af about being predictively correct about Enterprise-F.

So the promised Khan-level villain looks like trailer park white trash.

I absolutely fucking hate that they used the STO Odyssey class for the F, although it doesn't surprise me one bit after season 2.

We've known about this design for 11 damn years, ever since that completely FUBARed 'Design the Enterprise-F' contest. And instead of coming up with a brand-new design (which they could then market the hell out of), they just use this ship (and not even the marginally better Yorktown class upgrade), spoil the design right away in a trailer instead of in the show proper, and make it look even more video-gamey than Eaglemoss's version. I also got the impression from that trailer that the F isn't really going to be special; it's just another ship in whatever fleet they have going there at that station.

I dunno, maybe Sir Patrick didn't want the new Enterprise to outshine him or his three-year vanity project.

They didn't even need an F. E would only be like 30 years old at the time; they should've kept it.

Holy shit. I hadn't seen the trailer, so when you said "Lore! Moriarty!", I thought you were jokingly giving an exaggerated prediction of how stupid they could possibly go. But, uh... nope.

It’s like the writers and producers overdosed on ‘memberberries.

It might be even worse. Cryptic mentions of “passing the torch” could indicate that there’s going to be a bit of backdoor-piloting going on. The obvious focus of that would be a new Enterprise-based show. So… a new post-VOY show (finally!), set on that Ent-F (ugh)… with Seven and Raffi as part of it maybe? There has to be a reason they’ve kept them around while ditching Rios, Elnor, um… Kim Pine and, er, android girl, Christ I’ve forgotten their names already - Agnes and Soji? … in varying degrees of plot organics. I guess what I’m asking is, do we want a post-VOY (I guess post-PIC, now) show that contains elements of what went before, or a true step into the unknown like TNG was?

Did we actually hear that called the Enterprise? Or are we just seeing the design, and assuming it has to be the Enterprise because of the Design-the-Enterprise project?

It was labeled NCC-1701-F.

And if it’s a back door pilot, it will most likely be Star Trek: Titan, not Star Trek: Enterprise, considering the hard-on Matalas has for that ship.

The Titan-A, and the Enterprise-F, are so ugly.

Those nacelles don't belong on Titan. The original Shangri-La model is gorgeous tho.

There has not been good starship design in coming on 20 years. These idiots do what they do because they think it looks cool & rad & sleek & futuristic, but instead it looks ugly & shitty & aggressive & poorly scaled. I will say that the 32nd-century Constitution design speaks to me, however.
