Hey all – know it’s been over a month since I posted something. Am still working on my revamp of Independence. You would think that writing it into my Four Years War narrative would be smooth and things would move along faster, but no. I’ve been battling some major “writer’s fatigue” if you will and haven’t had a whole lot of motivation as of late.
Wanted to share some stuff I ran across though. I was reading through my usual tech blogs yesterday on my lunch break and I think it was CNet that reported Discovery had found someone to play Capt. Christopher Pike. (this link comes from Endgadget though)
Now I’ve never seen the new show and really have no plans to (mostly because I don’t like the idea of plopping down money for yet another subscription when that would be the only show I’d watch), but the addition is intriguing.
Even more intriguing than that was a shot of the new Enterprise I saw in the article. I went digging and found another link that compares/contrasts the design with the original TOS version
I actually don’t mind it. To me, it looks a bit like Constitution II or Tikopai (as I presented here) only with different nacelles, no torpedo launchers and of course, different exterior aesthetics.
This kind of makes me wish CBS would’ve chosen a different avenue with which to present Discovery, but who knows……..maybe one day I’ll cave?
