We're beginning to get info on Starfleet Academy.

Holly Hunter was announced as playing the lead captain-slash-chancellor of the Academy a while back, but Flare was throwing a fit at the time.

Just announced is that Paul Giamatti will be playing an antagonist, the reaction to which seems to universally be to post pics of Giamatti dyed blue from the movie "Big Fat Liar" and speculating that he'll be playing an Andorian. However, I believe that to be complete nonsense. Obviously, he'll be playing a Bolian. [Wink]

I have a bad feeling about this.

The setting in the 32nd century was bad enough as I despise their take on Starfleet of that period (ships, uniforms) and now they need a main antagonist?

It’s an interesting question. Has episodic TV Trek ever really had a long-term baddie?

TOS: Nope. OK, Mudd - twice!

TNG: The Duras siblings? Tomalak? Moriarty? Lore? … Q?

DS9: Blimey. Dukat! Winn! Weyoun! Female Changeling! Brunt! Evil Mirror Lesbian Kira! Eddington?

VOY: Maje Culluh? Seska? Ransom? Krenim? The Borg Queen?

ENT: Future Guy? Silik? Soval?! Assorted Xindi? Um… Robocop?

DSC: May be the best indicator of how they might go: villains of the season? 1. Voq/Tyler, L’Rell, Mirror Georgiou, Lorca… 2. Control/Leland 3. Emerald Chain Lady, forgotten her name, she was… green? 4. God only fucking knows. Space blob? Guy who wanted to go to Fluffy Bunny Universe where his BF was still alive? 5. Moll, L’ak

SNW: Nobody recurring?

LDS: That AI?

PDG: No idea never watched it. That girl character’s dad and his robot goon?
