Those RITOS shirts with their “retro” mid-23rd century DISCO vibe are neat :-)

Yes paramount..can we get those shirts made please?
I would like one to go with my 2 DISCO shirts. Thanks?

“Go climb a rock”! I knew it would stand on the shirt before I zoomed in! 😁

Have to love hijinks with gravity boots.

And yes, it seems that the reference to gravity boots in the cold open of last episode was completely intentional.

StarTrek.com’s gallery calls the episode “Three Ships”, not “wej Duj”. Are you sure they’re using the Klingon title?

Yes

So why is the official site listing it in English? (Honest question, not challenging anything.)

You would have to ask them. I know we have it right.

I was just thinking today this website is 15 years old this year and was originally created to discuss $150+ million blockbuster popcorn Star Trek movies. Cut to the present, those (mostly) seem to be over and we’re now talking about things like a 25 minute risque animated comedy, which I never would’ve thought would ever exist. Star Trek has had a weird path in the last few years but when it comes to Lower Decks definitely the weirdest lol, but in the positive way.

I actually prefer this show than another Kelvin movie. It’s just a lot of fun and hits all the great Star Trek feels in the process while really understanding its universe. It sucks second season is over in just two episodes but I have a feeling LDS will be around for quite a few years hopefully; especially as more fans seem to be gravitating to it.

Lower Decks would make a good movie. It wouldn’t have to be a mega hit and wouldn’t overcrowd the live action Trek movies.

LDS has become IMHO THE Trek show which rivals the Orville. They should move on and turn LDS into full-length-episodes. They could test it by making two-parters.

I been teasing since season 2 began that I hope the show gets 7 seasons and a movie! ;)

And I see it as a possibility, even if small, as a film one day. It would be so much cheaper to do but probably something to add on Paramount+ and not in the cinemas. When I said in my post that the Kelvin films were mostly dead I was speaking more of the massive budgets of them than more Kelvin movies. But I guess by default that would probably include the current movies with the huge budgets they and the actors have and probably why those seem to have stalled.

But I think if Paramount is going to follow other sites and start making movies for Paramount+ then that will probably include Star Trek as well if there is no hunger for big screen releases for awhile. Instead, they just make smaller films for that site. I can see LDS being part of something like that.

I’ve been on trekmovie from day one. 😀 Yes, I remember how trekmovie started and how we were discussing excitingly hints, bits and pieces of the then-coming-up movie. We were longing for every bit. This site became quickly the “unofficial official” site for Star Trek. At that time there was no Trek airing and the time after Enterprise felt veeeery long. But soon we were talking about the TOS-Remaster. Unbelievable that it has been 15 years!

You could almost say that it’s been a long road getting from there to here.

(Sorry… couldn’t resist.)

I didn’t know about the website until probably a few years after it came online. I want to say around 2008. I think this was the place where I first saw the online pics of the bridge and ship, first trailer, etc. I only lurked back then and just read articles from time to time. I didn’t start posting myself until probably around 2011 and it was very sporadic. It wasn’t until after STID premiered that I became more of a ‘regular’ but been on the site for a long time.

It was really an exciting time though when the first film was being made and all the theories, interviews and behind the scenes stuff got huge attention. I’m thankful of course CBS finally decided to make more shows again or I have no idea what we would be talking about today lol. The Trek movies have been dead in the water for literally years now sadly.

You know how when you were seven years old, you hated broccoli? Then someone put melted cheese on it, and it was a little better. Then you reached 25 and it tasted less repulsive enough that you didn’t mind eating it.

That’s kind of how I feel about Lower Decks right now. I am far less repulsed now versus what I felt for it in Season 1. Maybe by Season 3, I won’t mind eating it without cheese.

That said, I had a most frightening thought about the Lower Decks writers: I truly think that if the Lower Decks writers were given the chance, they could write appropriately dramatic and thriller-ish episodes of DISCO or PICARD … AND they would knock it out of the park. Similarly, if the Lower Decks writers were given freedom to write appropriately dramatic and thriller-ish Star Trek film scripts, I really think they would knock them out of the park as well.

Not sure why I think this, but I do.

I get why you say that.

They’ve figured out all the issues and skewered them with tongue firmly in cheek.

They’d know exactly what’s essential and what to avoid no matter how much the actors want to zip around in dune buggies, motorcycles or seadoos.

All main characters are voiced by actors (not just voice actors) that look like their characters. Tawny Newsome could totally play a real life Mariner and so could Jack Quaid, Noel Wells and Eugene Cordero with their characters. I wonder if they did this deliberately in case any of them would appear in future live action TV shows.

This reminds me of the original Lower Decks, where one of the Lower Deckers tries to suck up to Riker by telling him he has family in Canada.
