But I do like some things. It looks good. The CGI isn't half bad. And I like how it ties into TOS, though there are some lore inconsistencies. Like a Klingon D7 battlecruiser a 100 years before they are even introduced in DIS season 2. :lol
The producers often took designs and designations from the old tile game Starfleet Battles. That's definitely where the D7 designation came from, and the D6 and D7 were basically identical from the outside. Different weapons and other systems, but the same hull design. You could make the case that the ship in ENT was a D6, albeit a brand spanking new one, I'd imagine. However, the model they used was actually a K'tinga class cruiser, blowing that theory all to hell.  :lol  According to Memory Alpha they created a new model to use, presumably a D5, but the producers didn't like it and had them reuse an existing model.

As I recently pointed out, I found ENT far better than I remembered, with S2 probably the high point. S3 was inconsistent, but had the best episodes in it. S4 is half pretty good and half unwatchable garbage.

So another ST where the Fed is dead. Hopefully it's half as decent as Andromeda.

Yea that trailer did not look good to me. It just went full generic modern sci-fi. Hopefully the show is better than the trailer but it looked pretty awful to this guy.

I hope it's a lot better than Andromeda!  That show started garbage and somehow got worse the longer it went on.

How you end up getting on with ToS?  I think the last I saw you'd make a start and you were enjoying more than expected.

After what I'd read about S2 I was really considering giving it a shot. It was having to get through S1 that stopped me. After seeing that trailer I'm so glad I didn't bother. I'm still cautiously optimistic about the Pike show, but I can't shake this feeling that theyr'e going to set it in the MCU or something.

Moving very very slowly. On season 2. Just did the Cochran episode. Still enjoying it despite the clunkers.

Holy fuck
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Worf did have great hair.  I'm thinking with the right shampoo and conditioner, volumizer, maybe some texturizing product, he could really shine.
