    In Space Seed, I also seem to recall that records of Khan's time were sketchy but later ST lore indicates it was remembered as an overwhelmingly significant part of history and everybody knew who...

    Speaking of Khan, there's a very intentional continuity change right there. In "Space Seed", Khan and his genetic cohorts were specifically said to be a product of selective breeding. But in "Wrath...

    I'm okay with pretending the TOS ship didn't have flashing red and yellow lights and was more a 21st century than 1960s technical concept of the future neither of which will likely have any accuracy...

    Been a long while. But I think M'Benga only appeared in a couple of episodes of TOS. I suppose he could have been there for a short while to help out and wasn't going to be there long enough to be...

    That's a very good point. We tend to become hyper critical of stories we already dislike for other reasons but forgiving of continuity issues in something we like.

    I'm middle of the road on this. I've long since given up on prequel continuity matching up with TOS. I'm quite okay with a lot of it. I get that the tech has to look as sophisticated as they can make...

    Clearly, this is meant to be a prequel to TOS, not to the recent Abrams movies. That makes it more interesting whether they hit every detail or not.

    Although I was a huge fan of the show in it's day, they got very lucky to find a bodybuilder with both the height and muscle mass of Lou Ferrigno. Even at that, it had its weaknesses. What killed a...

    It was fast. But, although I haven't seen Wandavision, even going from her other appearances, I can't see that stopping Wanda. Either she blocks it or it works until she gets a chance to fix it....

    I've only seen the first episode. But I am getting the impression that the events of "The Cage" have already happened. There were several references to something that happened that is so classified...

    I don't know if words can describe my credulity at the idea that Star Trek *recently* became "woke". It's not like there was an episode called "Metamorphosis", which, metaphorically, defended all...

    Not sure what we're talking about here. I don't remember any implication that Spock was marred by the time Sarek appeared on TNG. But, I was referring to TOS, where Spock and T'Pring met once as...

    I like the trailer in terms of the acting and the idea. But, yes, the CGI looks really weak. In fact, so weak that the Lou Ferrigno Hulk is looking good again.

    Actually, though you are right that it still is not available for streaming elsewhere, it is out on DVD. Even the DVD price will likely start coming down in a year and then another.

    At this point, the show deviates far enough from leading into TOS that I don't think a Spock/ Chapel thing is necessary and would probably be happening way before they even met in TOS. On the other...

    Interesting so far, though I have to consider it a prequel to some version of the original Star Trek that we have never seen. It references a Lt. Kirk, so clearly it does not have the patent...

    I love how they say the movie was so bad it convinced Sean Connery to retire, when he had said, going in, that it would be his last movie.

    I loved the trailer. Only downside is I'll have to wait a while to see it since I am NOT adding another streaming service.

    I'm assuming that, by an American actor, you meant a white actor as opposed to an equally American actor of Asian rather than European descent.

    It was a poor choice having Joel Grey. But, to show...

    Okay on it's own merits, not so much on continuity, though at some of that was acknowledged and explained.
