These photos do make one anxious to watch it. It will be nice to watch episodic series for a change ala TOS, TNG, DS9, ENT & VOY for a change. Not to mention that we will see characters that are VERY familiar to us all. The details on the uniforms are fantastic, we saw them close on the February Star Trek cruise. The uniform shoulders are imprinted with the department designs like the early DISCO uniforms. Beautiful workmanship!

What has surprised me most I think is how good the uniforms look, how faithful they are to TOS, while not really being that far from the uniforms on DSC. Just goes to show that DSC wasn’t THAT far off, while it’s also an example of how just a few minor changes can be the difference between good and bad.

That said, I really LOVE the medical uniform on M’Benga, which is the “unique” one. I love the chest flap (very TWOK), and I love the more round collar.

Agreed, the medical one has a very “I can get this off very quickly if I need to get into scrubs for an emergency” sort of feel to it.

Great shots!!! This looks like a fun action adventure. Exploration! Adventure! Heroes out there where no one has gone before, on their own.
My only objection – what’s with the decolorification of the consoles? I feel that the awesome Discovery bridge being all functional and colorful looked so good and visually stimulating was making such a mockery of their larger “more elaborate” Trek sets that ultimately resulted in scenes involving someone sitting in a Chair in front of a door or piece of furniture that some set designer has sabotaged the look. Especially the little blinky lights above the main displays, why decolorify those?!? Was hoping it was Red Alert (always awesome when bridge colors change to match the alert status) but I am now thinking that it is static (and thus not cool, bridge colors won’t change to match the alert status because that involves visual stimulation which is something frowned upon in the world of Time Trek the next Technobabble Generation).
I am pleased to say that the TOS bridge is just so awesome with the monitors that even with this sabotage/decolorification still looks great (and makes a mockery of their ‘future’ sets).

A bit disappointed Jeffrey Combs is not onboard as Doctor Boyce as proposed by a lot of fans!

I agree that that would’ve been a master stroke of casting…and how do we really know that he won’t appear on the show in some capacity? The mind boggles….

As soon as the series was announced, I was hoping they’d feature Dr. M’Benga, so I’m pretty happy. We know the ship has at least two doctors at one time, at least sometimes, so having M’Benga certainly doesn’t preclude Piper, Boyce, or even McCoy appearing at some point.

Where’s Hemmer though? :)

Why is Uhura’s badge different?

Those are cadet badges. We saw them in DSC like that as well.

I love when they acknowledge different ranks, departments, cadets, non commissioned members, etc.
Was awesome to see the different uniforms in the TOS motion pictures, glad they are trying to rekindle some of that.

I wonder if Uhura will get the opportunity to say, “Captain . . . I’m frightened.”

Classic Trek quotes. Who can forget “I can’t get used to having a woman on the bridge”?

Looks like they’ve done alright job balancing the TOS look with modern technology (on the bridge at least). The consoles got touchscreens and physical buttons, the blinking screens (status lights?) above the consoles, circling the bridge. Even the GUI designs hit me with an old school aesthetic.

I’m also getting a well-worn vibe, especially with the floors in the captain chair pic, like this is a working ship, which fits given the 5 year missions.

I think you’re mistaking the filth of a soundstage (and a photographer that didn’t have the set wiped down prior to shooting) tracked onto a black set – as well as several X’s which are blocking marks for the actors – with a well-worn look.

Every shot screams “I got hired by a producer (or UPM or stage manager) even though I have no experience in this position or in television…”.

I’m feeling that dread : (

Lol. It could be that.

Kinda want to see it though. If the show is happening during long duration mission, far federation space, it would make sense the ship is a bit worn.

The worn/gritty aspects of the station is probably one thing that endeared me to DS9. It makes the world feel lived in.

I’m not seeing what you’re seeing then… what is it that looks used or worn?

Yeah this is the kind of stuff I think many fans wanted which was a nice direction to TOS but just more modernized. That’s what so many of us argued with Discovery. You don’t have to throw the baby out with the bathwater to feel ‘modern’ you can still add things like touchscreens along with buttons and levers when needed. We use both today, I imagine they will both still be used 3-400 years in the future too.

But the aesthetics overall just feels like 23rd century Star Trek again, so that alone makes it exciting. If Discovery just put in half of this kind of effort and not feel like it belonged in another century completely, that show could’ve stayed in the 23rd century as well (but not complaining where it ended up).

Come on guys….why so serious?

Nice shots. Too bad there is still no news about when or how most of the world will be able to watch the show.

Why is the helmsperson wearing red? Shouldn’t helm be gold?

I’m guessing that there are no shots of Hemmer because they don’t want to spoil the reveal of Engineering…

It really looks great. It’s exactly how I thought a more modernized TOS show would look today. I have no complaints (so far) about anything I seen.

It’s still crazy this show is only happening because fans pushed so hard for it! And it gives me hope we may get a Stargazer show if we push hard enough for that when Picard ends next year! ;)

Great cast, but I can’t help but feel they are all pretty people.

i want a slo mo hero walk as well

Okay, about Spock’s sideburns…

If you look closely, you can see that Pike also has unusually long sideburns. Pike has a large Elvis Presley/James Dean-style quiff too.

So all this may just be to indicate SNW takes place a few years earlier than TOS. The sideburns and hair is a 1950s thing, basically.

Spock’s sideburns remind me of the time Rudy Giuliani’s perspiration made his brown hair dye run down the side of his face.
