Hertzler). There is also an alien named K’Ranch (voiced by Nolan North) inspired by Tosk from Deep Space Nine. The episode was written by Garrick Bernard and directed by Michael Mullen. It arrives on Paramount+ on Thursday, September 1.

Martok AAAAAND the feeders of Vaal? Sign me up!

That was my first thought, but I’m not sure those are Vaalites. There are no facial tattoos and no white circles around the eyes.

Alas

Don’t get me wrong, I’d love it if it turns out you’re correct. This IS a century later, after all. Kirk’s influence might have resulted in changes to their society, such as no dropping the tattoos to be more like him.

Could they not be those sexually uninhibited aliens dressed in skimpy white toilet paper outfits, from that TNG planet where Wesley was sentenced to death for stepping on a flower bed?

Don’t recall those folks being orange though.

The Martok cameo was the clip they showed at Mission: Chicago. It’s fun being able to say that publicly now that it’s in official online promotional materials.

This K’ranch dude has skipped too many leg days.

I’m guilty of that….

So excited to have Martok back!!! It will be GLORIOUS!!!!

No, that’s Kor…

I believe Gorwon’s also used that phrase before, so it’s unfair to tie it to any one Klingon…

You’re correct.

Yeah, I thought Klingons like to use the word ‘glorious’ the same the way they use the word ‘honor’….OK not as much as honor. ;)

But maybe I’m only thinking of a few of them that uses it.

You had me at JG Hertzler

The Fonz is approaching the ramp, with both eyes on the shark.

By using the same format that made the series a success?

Wow, all those scenes we’ve glimpsed in the trailer and whatnot – the hunter hunting Boimler, the neo-Vaalites, the Klingon D&D game, Mariner skydiving – are from this one episode? It seems like it’ll be pretty packed, even by Lower Decks standards.

The Belugas are back!!!

Yep!!!!!!!
