It appears that E news will be showing some footage from Nemises. Wow already.

Edited post to reflect possible spoilers

Wait, which one is showing the Nemesis clips? Entertainment Tonight or E! News? Also, when are they showing the clips?

And there are already some spoiler snippets on the net. TrekToday/S31 has the goodies. Nothing stunning there - Geordi's eyes still look artificial, and rank pips appear unchanged. Worf is back in his usual uniform and sash, and Riker again hides behind a bush. But behold Lord and Lady of the Rings... Observation Lounge windows appear to be done in greenscreen here, not with a black canvas and pinprick stars, so clearly the VFX budget isn't shoestring. [Smile]

But.. didn't Worf leave Starfleet? And can an Ambassador be in Starfleet?

Worf didn't necessarily leave Starfleet. All we know is that he seemed to accept a posting as the UFP ambassador to the Klingon Empire. We've not been given reason to assume that this would require him to resign from Starfleet. Wasn't Picard an ambassador like Tomalak in the fake future of "Future Imperfect", while in Starfleet uniform?

And perhaps Worf never became an ambassador to begin with? After "What We Leave Behind", he might have reconsidered and politely refused. Or discovered that Martok was a devious Romulan spy and slain him in battle, then given the throne of the Empire to Alexander and moved back to serving under Picard. Or perhaps he donated the ambassadorship to his mindwiped brother.

I don't think they messed anything up. John Logan rewatched the last season of Deep Space Nine to see what Worf had been up to and how he became an ambassador, according to the reports when he was first announced. Script spoilers indicate that Worf simply wasn't cut out for diplomacy and got back into starship duty, which works for me. It may be a little too convenient for our taste, but it's not like they're just going to leave it unexplained.

Yes, it's not like he just shows up on the Enterprise-E corridor out of nowhere...not like Insurrection.

Hmm. Not even a new Commbadge, or anything. Oh well, they made five and a half original cast films without any significant changes in wardrobe. *pouts* Unless they have new phasers! *perks up* 8)

Personally, I'd like to see the unis stick around as is for awhile. At least for this movie.

Yah...I guess that's what I meant. It's a little too convenient. There may be nothing technically incorrect about it, it's just very convenient.

And yes...it does remind me of Insurrection.

It isn't that Worf not being an ambassador after all is an unworkable or implausible idea. It's just that it was an interesting move for the character. Alas.

We got at least one Trek novel out of the switch, I believe. Plus, I'm guessing he could have held the position for almost three years since the end of DS9, and may even have gotten as sick of the bureaucracy that Martok has. A High Council massacre or two later, and he's back on the Enterprise.

Set watch: The conference lounge set sems to be different. As I recall, in FC we saw that you could ONLY get into it from the two oddly redundant sets of doors on the bridge. Now, there's one exit visible in a location more familiar to the way they had it on the E-D, with a coridor wall behind. It still seems to fit with the bridge decoration motif, though - note the lighted column behind Picard, which I don't think was in the original E-E set. I don't have FC handy to check, though.

Regardless, I'm hoping against hope that this means the E-E bridge has gotten some kind of overhaul to keep at least that part of the ship fresh. I'm not much of a fan of the E-E bridge, and I never liked the modifications they made to it for Insurrection. Can we hope for an improvement in this next movie?

Where hast thou found these screencaps.... [Smile] Are you talking about one of the three at the TrekWeb link above? If so, are you sure that's the conference lounge?

Keep in mind, I've not seen the footage that's being discussed... Sorry [Frown]
