This week on the Shuttle Pod, your podcast crew discuss the exciting news that came out last week.
Shuttle Pod 48: Our First Look At ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Season Two And Two More Trek Movies
In the same week we got a quick look at the start of production on Star Trek: Discovery season two, and then official confirmation that Paramount was planning not just one, but two, feature films. Brian, Jared, and Matt discuss. We were excited to get a glimpse at the USS Enterprise crew uniforms on Discovery, and that both the fourth Kelvin movie, with Chris Hemsworth returning as George Kirk, and the separate Quentin Tarantino project will be allowed to move forward.
Lastly, the crew indulges Matt in a little soapbox speech about placing The Original Series in its proper context to help reframe the current pop culture idea that TOS was “cheap.”
VIDEO: Visual effects artist Daren Dochterman (who worked on the Director’s Edition of Star Trek: The Motion Picture among other projects) used the blue screen footage found on The Roddenberry Vault to show off how nice the model work on TOS can look, even just by taking raw behind the scenes/deleted footage and compositing it into a star-field.
