I think they blew the budget on sparks for this one! Looks great though!
And there will of course be exploding consoles and people throwing themselves around the bridge as the camera shakes.
Classic Star Trek. I love it
Yes! And some people will throw themselves in the opposite direction! :-)
If you have the bridge of the Enterprise, you may as well do the whole traditional program! :-D
I was thinking that the Enterprise bridge is definitely better than the Discovery bridge at throwing sparks.
Woohoo, let the sparks fly! On the other hand, it looks like Spock’s not going to lose the beard before the end of the season. Oh well. :)
In that case, CBS needs to start the Captain Pike/Spock/Number One series, so we can see that! Make it so!
Boy. That’s doesn’t give you much, does it? So we can now reasonably assume that there will be a bunch of explosions on the Enterprise!
Well the Section 31 ships will attack the Enterprise.
I can’t tell if you are being serious, or if that’s an attempt at returning my sarcasm in kind.
Why do you think you’re owed more of a preview than you’ve been given?
The episode is just two days away. Relax. :-)
I don’t think I’m owed anything. It’s just the pics didn’t seem to add much.
They are just trying to keep spoilers away. Every preview they show as little as possible. Its basically just a reminder a new episode is coming (as if we don’t know ;)).
The trailer footage was used at the end of last week’s episode.
That’s generally when TV shows run their trailers.
I was referencing the terminology wherein “release” sounds somewhat as if this footage was previously unseen. Just clarifying.
that’s what the JJ prise bridge should’ve looked like. none of that huge white apple store with blinding lights. why didn’t they do it this way for the JJfilms? did they think everyone would LOL or something?
It’s the difference between one team that wants to invoke the original, and one that wants to put their own stamp on things. Both approaches are valid, only one will please the existing fanbase.
Agreed. I think those films would’ve been a bit more liked if they stayed closer to TOS aesthetics like they did with this bridge. And it FINALLY proves what so many of us been saying with those films and now Discovery, you actually CAN remake the TOS look but modernize it. This is all people were saying, not have it literally look like it came from the 60s. It looks like they finally got the hint.
Tiger2 It’s hard to know what Discovery would have looked like if Tamara Deverell had led design from the get go…she’s gone so far as to say she was taken aback when she saw the Discovery bridge.
Her MU designs were cool in my view, and while there are some fans that are still looking for every planet to be locked in the Southwestern US design tradition that informed the 90s series, she’s walked a consistent line in terms new creativity and respect for the past.
And it’s interesting that she’s innovating with new material – like the powder-coated metal – to get both better looks and durability.
So, let’s hope that she’s given rein to keep going.
I think it was proved the designers could do it when we saw the tricorders and phasers in season 1. Proved it again when we saw the Enterprise uniforms in season 2. Had they been allowed to make it a true “updated” prequel from day one, I think we would have had something much better than what we ended up with. What we got was OK but it was also limited to fitting in with the existing Discovery aesthetic. They did as good as they could possibly do within those limitations. But I just lament that it could have been so much better. If only…
Those bridge shots during the battle are BEAUTIFUL!
Pike looks stunning.
They look beautiful. I’m ready for the grand finale.
“Get these fireworks off my bridge!”
Irwin Allen, what are you doing here??
..and the flying sub will be a section 31 shuttle!
Is this going to be padded out with one long goodbye scene after another too? I think I skimmed through about 15 minutes of that in last week’s.
It’s the crying that gets to me. More than anything, the one thing I got out of Discovery this season is that there’s way too much crying. I’m all for the emotional bits, but when it gets to a point where it feels like there’s more crying in this one season than in how many seasons worth of Berman Trek, then it takes away from the rest of the show.
Well, when you have one of the producers on Berman trek literally tell people “tone done your emotion if you’re playing a human” to the point Kate mulgrew got hundreds of notes and retakes in season 1 alone, I think you are being unrealistically unemotional.
The more that comes out about Rick Bermam, the more I become sure he was on a completely different planet all together.
Agreed. Emotional scenes are great and it’s a complete necessity to add those emotional punches. But Burnham had tears running down her face, what? Three or four times in 13 episodes? That’s just too often. And it doesn’t help that her character is difficult to care about to begin with.
I’m gonna miss Captain Pike for sure. He is a great guy. Pike is a great captain.
Yeah, Trek should be about cool ships and phaser fire, not all this wussy emotional stuff.
Now that was sarcasm I believe Michael Hall.
Emotions are fine, and for whatever reason counsellors and emotional regulation don’t seem to be a thing in TOS era…
But back-after-back emotional wringer episodes are too much…they lose their impact.
Like violence, Trek excels when emotional scenes are rationed rather than the norm.
This is also the tradeoff. It would be great to see a Trek that’s like Galactica in the sense of really having emotional reactions not only to threats but to each other. And we are a “fan base” audience, but the balance also needs to be believable responses to understandable plots.
Meh. I feel like the wheels came off of this season (after a very promising start). Everything since the time-crystal/Michael’s mom revelation has just seemed cheesy.
Thanks you for saying that. That’s how I feel…it was a long slow walk to that episode and now it feels like they are rushing to end the season within a predetermined set of season episodes. I can almost envision the writers saying…oh crap…we only have 3 more episodes to wrap up the season so lets put pedal to the metal and get it done.
Paratech, this one does not feel rushed to me like season 1 did. In fact, whild the storyline is a comic book and the regular characters (not including the new ones) are still sub par at best, I’m more interested in where this one is going than I ever was for season 1.
Yeah, the actual reveal has been a major let down for me too. I’m still interested to see how they will wrap it all up but I really wish they went another direction with all of it in general. Still TONS better than season one IMO at least.
I agree. I had a feeling this would happen and it can be the problem with mystery type seasons/shows. The resolutions are often disappointing. I’ve still liked the season overall, but the last episode I really loved was the Airiam one. I did like last last week’s episode quite a bit though and thought it was the best one since Airiam. I enjoyed the slower character moments that it had although I feel like several episodes in a row had Michael and Ash standing in front of a window crying. The crying hasn’t bothered me but it does feel repetitive. I’m almost over the Michael character, honestly. I think the actress is great but just tired of her being the focus of everything and the one to always have all the answers. She started the klingon war, her mom was the red angel, she is the only one that can go in the future, she is the only one that thought of destroying discovery, she is the variable control can’t account for, she figured out how to save Spock, etc… I think the writers should really try to let the other characters shine next season. More Saru, More Stamets, more Detmer and the other lady.
And while I’ve enjoyed the season overall, there are things that really don’t make that much sense. I still think there’s a lot of potential. I also enjoyed season 1 for the most part. Honestly, I think this show is so much better than Voyager and especially Enterprise so far. I hope they can keep the momentum going.
Agreed – she’s a great actress but Star trek is an ensemble show. Forcing the spotlight on Michael constantly strains the narrative.
I kinda feel the same way. It started off promising but soon after they decided the RA was a future person in a suit, it lost of lot of what it had going for it. Don’t get me wrong… It lost a lot but it was STILL way better than anything they did in season 1. It was still a vast improvement. But right now it only raised it’s grade from F to C-.
I’m guessing its the Klingons. Tyler said he was leaving to get help and outside of Discovery and Section 31 who else does he know?
Did the show ever explain what happened to Spock’s doctors? He didn’t really kill them, but Starfleet accused him of murder so then someone else ended up killing them? I know Control faked the video feed of them dying, but how did they really die for Starfleet to consider Spock a murderer and a fugitive? Killed by Section 31 agents?
No but then they have never explained a lot of things. Like what happened to Kaminar and other stuff.
I wonder if the “unexpected friends” happen to be either more Federation ships (because if Sarek and Amanda didn’t notify Starfleet after they found out was going on, then what the hell…) or the Klingons per request of Tyler via L’Rell.
I’m hedging my bets on the latter.
I guess this could almost be resolved by better self control and waiting a week, but I kind of think it could have been better to cut it as a feature length finale rather than splitting it in two.
Agreed, it should definitely have been a two-hour finale event. But I guess CBS needs to have those All Access memberships continue for another extra week.
The Enterprise bridge looks great form that classic camera angle.
RE: Photo 5 of 8
If that photo doesn’t say “STAR TREK”, then I don’t know what does.
The more photos of the Enterprise bridge I see, it keeps looking better and better. As someone else noted above, photo 5 of 8 is classic. The grey wall panels around the turbolift really do give it a modernized TOS look. Really looking forward to seeing the finale and will probably stop reading any articles, just to avoid any spoilers or speculation. Enjoy the finale everyone and already can’t wait for the season premiere of S3. Lets hope it comes early 2020.
Captain Pike ST Enterprise… We need this series to happen
It just occurred to me that maybe the expense on building the Enterprise is being justified by it being the basis for sets for the main ship in the Picard show.
Not sure how since Discovery is shot in Toronto and the Picard show will be shot in SoCal.
