Strange New Worlds

Post by Sothis » Fri May 15, 2020 3:15 pm

So, a new Star Trek series, possibly one of the worst kept secrets, has been announced today.

It will continue to explore pre-TOS events, only this time from a more familiar setting.

It was no secret because that was the obvious goal from the beginning given how much money was spent on building all new sets, retaining the Mount, Romijn, and Peck, the Short Treks, etc. And of course the TPTB even said that if the demand from fans was enough they'd go ahead with a Pike series. Some people would even say that this is what should've been done from the get-go instead of Discovery.

I dare say you're right, there are people who would argue this would have been a better vision for DSC. However, I remain glad that DSC has its own distinct identity, whilst SNW will have its own unique identity.
