    CBS All Access, in advance of Star Trek: Discovery's second-season premiere on January 17, 2019, has just unveiled an official trailer and key art, and they've also revealed that season two will be extended to 14 episodes, from the previously announced 13. Discovery's sophomore season finds the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery -- after answering a distress signal from the U.S.S. Enterprise -- joining forces with Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount) on a new mission to investigate seven mysterious red signals and the appearance of an unknown being called the Red Angel. While the crew must work together to unravel their meaning and origin, Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) is forced to face her past with the return of her estranged brother, Spock (Ethan Peck). Season two of Star Trek: Discovery will premiere on Thursday, Jan. 17, 2019 at 8:30 PM, ET/5:30 PM, PT exclusively on CBS All Access in the United States and will also be distributed concurrently by CBS Studios International on Netflix in 188 countries and in Canada on Bell Media’s Space channel and OTT service CraveTV. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios, Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment. View the full article

    It sounds like over all Trek fans are enjoying the new series. Maybe I will break down next year and pay for it.

    I am really looking forward to this ep tonight. This was a good idea by the writers to visit the mirror universe. It has such a cool factor since being introduced in the second season ep "Mirror, Mirror" on TOS. The cool part is that Lorca, Burnham and company are playing off their counterparts roles to survive there - at all costs. I also can't wait to see how "Captain Killy" portrays her alternate universe self. Good stuff. I wonder if there will be a big reveal in the form of the Terran Emperor. It seems that the writers on this show have been good at throwing us viewers surprises. The sky's the limit with this story arc.

    Discovery's propulsion system is amazing. The use of living creatures to accomplish it is probably why it remained a secret, and was never part of design of future ships. The creature is somehow not responding well to its role. People who seem like main characters keep getting killed. For noe I m interested to see where this all leads.

    I was drawn in by this episode. I also watched this episode multiple times, which is one advantage to Star Trek being on all access. Saru was blunt and to the point. I loved Burnham's speech when she made it plain to Lorca that she lives and dies by Star Fleet Principles. The magnitude of her loss, and the pain it brings, is apparent but not overacted. I liked the scene where she touched the insignia on the pillow. I think crediting Burnham with starting the war with the Klingons is not quite accurate, since the Kingons were planning war all along, despite what everyone says. The Federation does not understand the Klingons well enough to make a better assessment of what started the war, But she did mutiny. I am glad she is out of jail. What I liked about this episode was how an apparently resigned to her fate Burnham popped right back into top form when put into situations that needed her expertise. I also liked Lorca's comment on how the universe perhaps did not like waste.

    Artwork looks nice. Many of the non-TNG posters looked awesome as well. I hate to be the one to state it, but the TNG crew poster should have included Wesley Crusher. He was based on Gene Wesley Roddenberry as a young man and Wesley Crusher played a significant role in many memorable TNG eps such as "The First Duty" and one of my personal faves, "Journey's End".

    I like the intro. It has a retro cool feel to it with a definite sense of well, for lack of a better word "discovery".

    Ladies and gentlemen, we present, for your viewing and listening pleasure, the Audi Orchestra, as they perform the original Star Trek theme. Now, this is no ordinary orchestra. It features musicians, including a horn player and harpist, joined by an Audi R8 V10 Plus, SQ5 and TT RS, in bringing the tune to life. The spot is timed to the Emmy Awards broadcast, which will air Sunday on CBS, and celebrates the fact that in 1967, Star Trek: The Original Series was nominated for Outstanding Drama.

    A new topic..its easy all you gotta do is post some historical fact for that day.. Today in history...The Dambusters and the bouncing bomb The attack on German dams took place on the night of 16-17 May 60 years ago and was famously made into a film, starring Sir Michael Redgrave. Two dams were breached in the raid, but an estimated 1,294 people drowned, while 53 aircrew were killed and three taken prisoner. One of the most famous bombing raids ever.

    In the past, I'm sure I had mentioned my neighbor and good friend Norm. He passed away in 2012 and his wife unfortunately followed in 2014. But around 2010 or 2011, she received a call from someone who started off the call by calling her 'Grandma' and going on to say that she was Norm's son (he had children from a previous marriage). "Scott", went on to explain that he was in the Bahamas or maybe it was the Virgin Islands, and was arrested for being drunk at a concert and the local police were demanding $2,000 as a bribe to let him go. "Scott" also asked "Grandma" (she was really his step-mother), not to tell his father anything about it. Now keep in mind, the real Scott lived in Alaska at the time and would never call her 'Grandma'. Being a very stressful situation, she dutifully went to the Western Union office and wired him $2,000. After she got home, 'Scott' called back and said that they were demanding $5,000 more or they'd charge him and he'd spend a year in their jail. At this point, she was very upset, and told Norm (my friend). He immediately realized that it was a scam, but just to double check, he called his son in Alaska and sure enough, he was safe and sound in his home. The $2,000 was gone for good, an expensive lesson to learn for Norm's wife, but a lesson learned. These sorts of scams will never end, and will only get more creative. I've read of the 'Can you hear me' scam, where someone will call you and the first question is 'Can you hear me?' or some other question that will get you to give a 'Yes' or other affirmative answer. They're recording your voice saying 'Yes', and later add it to a recording where it sounds like you're agreeing to buy something or pay some bill or something of that sort. You can, of course, fight it. But like identity theft, it can be time consuming and expensive.

    What about this, AE.....you know those emails from foreign countries that ask for money for all kinds of personal catastrophes? Well I received an email from a friend saying something sad had happened. This was an out of state friend and professional colleague so I emailed her back to say I was praying for her and to let me know if there was anything I could do. As I left work it occurred to me to just call her....and lo, nothing was wrong! Plus, she had been getting calls all day from friends, and was in the process of investigating how she had been hacked. The next day I received an email reply to the email I had sent, supposedly replying from my friend. According to the letter my friend was stuck in a foreign country was ill, and needed thousands of dollars, and oh...she was so embarrassed to have to ask for this money. Now that reply site has been sent out to our IT people as a phishing site. But there is no restraint on these people. You just got an America version!

    Eddie Paskey appeared in nearly 60 episodes of Star Trek: The Original Series, most of them as Lt. Leslie, but he only ever earned screen credit twice... for "The Alternative Factor" and "This Side of Paradise." So, why do we bring this up now? That's because "The Alternative Factor" debuted on March 30, 1967... or 50 years ago today. Rather than toast "The Alternative Factor," we're going to tip our cap to Paskey. Did you know that he: Only ever spoke in "The Naked Time" and "The Conscience of the King." He was glimpsed sporting gold, blue and, yes, red shirts over the course of his time on TOS. Served as William Shatner's stand-in and turned up briefly as a Starbase 11 medical care assistant in "The Menagerie, Part 1." Can thank Shatner for the character name Lt. Leslie. According to Paskey's official site, "This was a result of his friendship with William Shatner. During a scene in which Eddie was at the helm, Bill felt that he should have a name since he was to issue a command to Eddie. Thus, he became 'Mr. Leslie,' named after Shatner's oldest daughter, Leslie." Drove the truck that claimed the life of Edith Keeler in "The City on the Edge of Forever." Appeared as Connors in "Mudd's Women." Died in "Obsession" and seemingly came back to life in the next episode. Played one of Bela's baddies in "A Piece of the Action." Hand-doubled James Doohan in several episodes. Retired from acting during season three of TOS. "He had been having cluster headaches that were further aggravated by the set lighting," it's explained on Paskey's site. "In a scene in which he received a 'Spock pinch' and was thrown against a railing, he felt his back go out. At this point, Eddie knew he could no longer handle the job's activities." Remains a popular guest at Star Trek conventions around the globe. View the full article

    I saw the documentary that his son did. In watching it, I realized that at the time Leonard Nimoy was born in Boston and at the hospital in which he was born, my grandmother was a nurse. So, my grandmother was most likely inside the hospital when he was born and if she wasn't there at the time, she was there not long after. He grew up not far from where my mother and her siblings grew up. We're talking about maybe half a mile to a mile in distance.

    Hi everyone, since I'm doing this sort of topic thingy on a lot of other boards, I thought why not doing it here as well, here, the first English-speaking Trek message board I registered at when I became a Trek fan... wow, that was a long time ago... Those of you who remember me probably also remember that I'm a huge fan of Sir Patrick Stewart. I try to know everything about him, which is proving to be a rather challenging task sometimes. This topic is meant to provide people with Sir-Patrick-related news, new pictures and videos, movie/theater rumors and all (I will mark rumors as such, no worries). Of course it is also meant to be interactive, so, if you have a Sir-Patrick-related question or a comment or whatever, feel free to chime in and I'll try to answer it. I can't guarantee that I'll always have an answer, though. He is a rather fascinating individual with lots and lots of different aspects (which is partly why I like him so much), so, as I said, trying to know all about him is definitely not an easy task. Anyways... to start this whole thing, I thought I'd provide you with a) a link that points to recent pictures of Sir Patrick AND b ) information about what he's up to at the moment. a) The recent pictures can be found here. There were taken at OzTrek2, a Star Trek convention in Melbourne, Australia. Sir Patrick attended it on January 30th. b ) Next week (on Feb 18-21) Sir Patrick is going to perform with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in their version of Stravinsky's Oedipus Rex. He won't sing, though, he'll "only" narrate. (Pity, isn't it?) More information can be found here. He has also hinted at the fact that he will be back on a theater stage soon, so, he's up to something in that regard as well. Furthermore, if you have Twitter, you can follow my Sir-Patrick-News account over there at: http://twitter.com/PatStewartNews

I'm very surprised that it survived all my seperations and moves..It's such a beautiful pic of Grace.. I love the hair..Back then I even had a 45 she did..I believe the name of the song was 'Take a Star Trip'..She had a great singing voice. Didn't I hear recently that she was puting out a compilation CD of her songs? If anyone hears of this, please let me know..

    I have yet to watch my season 6 downloads (no cable), but I previewed this episode! YES, EXTREMELY FUNNY! Also, here's 2 Trek referrences: Roswell "Secrets and Lies" Max, a main character, is off in LA looking for a 2nd shape shifting alien. (Long story! ) Anywho, to get access to Paramount Pictures, where he suspects the alien is possing as a producer, Max gets an agent and auditions for Enterprise! He auditions with John Billingsly out of makeup and Johnathan Frakes is there as the ENT director when he really directed the Roswell episode! Here's another! The Time Machine After Vox the "compendium of all human knowledge" ridicules Alex for thinking time travel is possible, Vox asks if there's anything else. Alex, the time traveler, says he'll try back in a few hundred years. Vox makes the Vulcan hand sign and says, "Live long and prosper!" followed by a TOS door sound effect! :lol: John Logan wrote the movie right before he wrote NEMESIS, thus him being a Trekkie, he stuck in the joke! So, anyone catch either of these? What else is there to look for?!

    I voted for Picard. As I have stated in other favourite captain polls here, if were in Starfleet I would have no hesitation to put my life in his hands. Archer is creeping up to that category too. I would never trust my life to Kirk. In TOS practically every week there was the unknown crew member who got killed (ok I exagerate).
