#GiveUsLorcaPrime Pleeeeeeeease!!!

plleeeeeeaaase, #giveuslorcaprime, plleeeeeeaaase!

Check the upcoming Discovery novel Drastic Measures. Lorca and Giorgiou take on Kodos the Executioner.
Comes out Saturday.

Bawwww, that photo of Doug Jones and Ted Sullivan is ADORABLE. And if I’m perfectly honest with myself, I’ve had the kind of day where I need the warm, comforting embrace of Saru.

*threat ganglia UP*


I love how generous Jason Isaacs always is when talking about his fellow actors. I’ve seen him do this a lot of times — he talks about how great the OTHER person is. Gabriel Lorca is a very bad man, but Jason Isaacs is a classy guy. ;-)

He sure comes across as generous and classy when he’s denouncing 62 million Americans and their petty underclass concerns ;-)

He has never actually done that.
I come from a conservative family.
Love Isaacs, He is avery good actor and I am very glad the he is part of Trek lore now.

Yeah, Isaacs is the man!

BTW, he’s already lining up conventions lol. I know he’s going to be VERY popular at those.

I agree, Isaacs is at his best when he’s denouncing the Deplorables and all the disgusting things they stand for. I’m sure it would please Roddenberry. Let’s hope he keeps doing it!



Yes, because as those 63 million would be the first to tell you, Trek has always been about building walls between people.

Their concerns are valid, the course of action they think will solve those concerns is not going to help them or anyone else in this country. We want the UFOP, those 62 Million put on on a path toward the Terran Empire and rampant corporatism.

The Terran Emprie = Rampant corporatism?? Did you have an aneurysm
when Mudd was talking free traders in the UFP?

I really want to explore the bridge set of the Discovery. It’s a thing of beauty!

Every one of these shows looks like it was a blast to make.
