[QUOTE=jonu67;53126038]And? I never mentioned the Crossfield.[/QUOTE] I was talking about the Enterprise.
[QUOTE=Tuskin;53126039]I was talking about the Enterprise.[/QUOTE] Oh no I like the Enterprise here. Though it will forever bug me that the scaling is completely off.

The windows seem to be roughly the same size as they were in TOS/TMP. But that could be misleading.

Either way I like the way it looks, it's exactly how I'd have imagined a modern spin would look.
[QUOTE=Tuskin;53126052]Not really, the DSC looks tiny in that shot, it could be farther away.[/QUOTE] Scale is definitely not one of Trek's strong suits. It's been a problem since the beginning; the most egregious cases of inconsistent scale are probably with everything in the new movies, and the Defiant in DS9. At this point it's just something I'm not concerned with.
If they go with the most commonly accepted scale, the saucer would be nearly the next same size as Discovery’s inner saucer/ring [editline]12th February 2018[/editline] Another Q&A on the Finale [url]http://ca.ign.com/articles/2018/02/12/star-trek-discovery-producers-on-that-crazy-season-1-finale[/url]
watching the finale now, she just called tilly "killy" and I want to personally deliver a pink slip to one of their writers
The last two episodes feel really anticlimactic and rushed, I'd rather this season finished with episode 13 "What's Past Is Prologue" the cliffhanger on that would have set up season 2 nicely.
[QUOTE=Mort Stroodle;53127527]watching the finale now, she just called tilly "killy" and I want to personally deliver a pink slip to one of their writers[/QUOTE] Why?
[QUOTE=Mort Stroodle;53127527]watching the finale now, she just called tilly "killy" and I want to personally deliver a pink slip to one of their writers[/QUOTE] That's what Tilly is called in the Mirror universe hilariously enough. Even Saru says it's not very subtle.
Hmm, a different style uniform spotted in the finale. Reminds me of The Cage. [t]https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/240485808509812737/412921354959192064/DV4q1SEVAAIGbpi.png[/t]
[QUOTE=Tuskin;53128055]Why?[/QUOTE] Because it's a fucking awful line
[QUOTE=Mort Stroodle;53129143]Because it's a fucking awful line[/QUOTE] Eh, no it isn't. She's mocking her. Discovery is the first time we've seen lights on the moon. It was mentioned in other series/movies that there were settlements on it, and Riker in First Contact even says they're visible from earth at night, but they've never actually shown it.

I'm having trouble imagining any situation where a mirror universe crewman says "Yes sir, captain Killy" and doesn't immediately jump out the nearest airlock out of sheer embarrassment [editline]13th February 2018[/editline] [QUOTE=Tuskin;53129185]Eh, no it isn't. She's mocking her. [/QUOTE] It's an incredibly cringy thing to say that really doesn't fit mirror Philipa. And don't forget that it's supposed to be her [I]nickname[/I] in the mirror universe
[QUOTE=Mort Stroodle;53129191] It's an incredibly cringy thing to say that really doesn't fit mirror Philipa[/QUOTE] Based on what we've seen of her, I disagree.

[QUOTE=Mort Stroodle;53129191]I'm having trouble imagining any situation where a mirror universe crewman says "Yes sir, captain Killy" and doesn't immediately jump out the nearest airlock out of sheer embarrassment[/QUOTE] I doubt it's used like that, between crewmen to the captain. It's probably used affectionately and jokingly between Mirror Tilly and her friends/commanding officers, while also used among the crew and not directly to her. I can totally picture Empress Giorgiou ending some assignment involving a lot of shady shit by calling her "Killy." Cheesy as it is, that's what the mirror universe is - it's the cheeseball, hammy acting universe.
earth's spacedock is ridiculously large in trek lore, its size is debatable but the "mushroom" is like 3.8Km wide according to the original model notes and in all respects it is basically a megastructure in star trek vernacular since only the dyson sphere and that ship from TOS would be much bigger
Spacedock must be pretty old by the time of TNG, like an old city town hall. With regards to STD, I wish the spore drive would push them to the 2390s with cameos.
[QUOTE=RoboChimp;53129668]With regards to STD, I wish the spore drive would push them to the 2390s with cameos.[/QUOTE] God no. I'd rather have it way farther forward with zero physical connection.
[QUOTE=Tuskin;53129185]Eh, no it isn't. She's mocking her. [/QUOTE] You honestly think that calling Tilly "killy" is not the most juvenile and cringy shit. I cannot get over how fucking awful of a line that was and here you are with "eh it's not bad"

I cannot get over how fucking awful of a line that was and here you are with "eh it's not bad"[/QUOTE] And calling Barclay "Broccoli" isn't juvenile or cringy? It's a nickname, lighten up. The mirror universe, while "darker" than the prime universe, is also a pretty silly place overall.
I don't mean to sound like a broken record, but holy shit [sp]they let Georgiou walk, after letting her play captain even though the ruse was absolutely not necessary for the crew. I think if your dictator is going to immediately blow their cover talking about how finger licking good Kelpians are right on the bridge, you can do away with the pretense and just lock her up.[/sp] Also I'm going to be that guy and take issue with the final scene. [sp]It's the U.S.S. Fan Service showing up purely to guarantee viewers for the second season. It looked great but imagine if DS9 teased a season with the Enterprise D showing up to take Sisko on adventures. [/sp]

The Enterprise won't be a focus of season 2, they'll just be there to set up the plot.[/sp]

It's just that I was genuinely excited for [sp]a new captain and Disco not warping into a super high stakes situation as soon as the last one was hastily resolved. It's kinda exhausting really, there's no respite, they never stop and get fixed up at any starbases or have episodes themed around the crew doing stuff in their spare time. Every day is a new disaster pushing them to the edge of their morals. Obviously they were going to have to tease something, but the original Enterprise showing up right at the end of season 1 just feels a touch desperate to me.[/sp]

According to interviews season one was always planned to end that way at least that specific scene was always planned
