  5. Was just on Facebook and there seems to be a lot of pushback about the way the Discovery Klingons look. Some acknowledge that there has been variety in Klingon looks and others seem to feel this is pushing the envelope too far. At Star Trek Las Vegas sessions, it was stated that there are, or were in this time period, 24 different Klingon houses, each, it's inferred, each a different look. There seems to be pushback over whether covering this time period is a good idea, or whether they should have gone into the future, past TNG, DS9 etc.

  13. Back from Las Vegas Star Trek Con. There were 4 hours of panels on Star Trek Discovery. My reaction to the trailer originally was that it was all action, too violent and dark. I've changed my opinion somewhat since the panels. I did think the Klingon warrior was way too reptilian. Michael Westmore explained that he actually was creating some Klingons based on dinosaur skeletons. A big revelation was that there are 24 houses of Klingons, many of them different from each other, so that makes me feel better about this first look. I had already heard pre panel talk from fans that they didn't the that reptilian remake of the Klingons....
  14. I am not happy that for the first time, US viewers have to pay for a televised version of Star Trek, ,while the rest of the world gets to see it on at least some platform for free! Not sure if I will be watching beyond the first free episode. And I LOVE Star Trek!
