>'Star Trek: Discovery' Showrunners Out; Alex Kurtzman to Take Over

"Sources say the decision to oust Berg and Harberts was based not on the creative but instead for leadership and operational issues. Sources say the budget for the season two premiere ballooned, with the overages expected to come out of subsequent episodes from Discovery's sophomore run. Insiders also stress that Berg and Harberts became increasingly abusive to the Discovery writing staff, with Harberts said to have leaned across the writers room table while shouting an expletive at a member of the show's staff. Multiple writers are said to have been uncomfortable working on the series and had threatened to file a complaint with human resources or quit the series altogether before informing Kurtzman of the issues surrounding Berg and Harberts. After hearing rumors of HR complaints, Harberts is said to have made imposing remarks to the staff to keep concerns with the production an internal matter."

>Alex Kurtzman Inks $25M Overall Deal Extension With CBS TV Studios, Will Expand 'Star Trek' TV Franchise

"The new deal comes as rumblings about another Star Trek series, featuring Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Star Trek: The Next Generation's Capt. Jean-Luc Picard, have been getting louder. Sources say Kurtzman and Akiva Goldsman, who left Discovery after season one, are attached to the Stewart-led reboot. CBS TV Studios declined to confirm the Stewart project as sources say a deal is far from completed and may not happen, despite the fact that the actor recently teased his potential return to the franchise."

Anybody eagerly awaiting to see what Quentin Tarantino has in store for Trek may have to wait even longer than first expected. According to Simon Pegg, Taratino's idea has been "put in the bank" as Tarantino will be "so busy with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood that [Pegg] can't see him doing it for five or six years."

https://edmontonjournal.com/entertainment/movies/we-might-be-too-old-simon-pegg-says-current-cast-may-not-appear-in-quentin-tarantinos-star-trek/wcm/d1f6c86b-cc0e-4121-8162-8cba1fb3b135

>"This is not entirely the Spock who has been formed enough to be the Spock that we know from TOS. There's a lot of story about who Spock was before he becomes the Spock that is the yin-yang to Kirk," Kurtzman told TV Guide. "What I'm so excited about is that we have an opportunity to present a version of Spock that's both totally consistent with the Spock everyone knows but very, very different. And it's all gonna tie to how we sync up with canon."

>Spock's appearance on Discovery will be tied to his relationship with his adoptive sister Burnham, who he has never mentioned before in Star Trek canon. Kurtzman previously told us that Season 2 will explain exactly why Spock never brought up Burnham during his time on the USS Enterprise with Kirk and the rest of the gang. And according to Sonequa Martin-Green, it looks like we'll see firsthand some of the reasons why.

>"We're certainly gonna see Spock and we're gonna be exploring those family dynamics," she said. "We're gonna see a lot between them." Added executive producer Heather Kadin, "I think that like any brother or sister, there's love. There's deep wells of stuff. That's what's so great about exploring that relationship, is there's a lot of tricky stuff that we get to dig into." No word yet on who will play the famous Vulcan but we can't wait to see him in action!

>Season 2 also finds Anson Mount headed the series as Captain Pike, the man who helmed the USS Enterprise before Kirk. A teaser for the upcoming season reveals that he'll take over the USS Discovery to face a mysterious new threat that could be tied to Spock. The impending danger will send them all over the galaxy where they'll meet interesting new faces including Tig Notaro's Denise Reno, Chief Engineer of the Federation ship Hiawatha. Plus, Rebecca Romijn is set to play the Enterprise's Number One, a role originally played by Majel Barrett Roddenberry in the TOS pilot.

It's essentially the same thing as with JJTrek: A rather cynical take on the property, banking on the known names in order to garner media attention and seem relevant to an audience that only knows those names through pop cultural osmosis. Personally, I think that's what lies at the heard of me genuinely taking offense at these reboots. I can't take that entire text seriously, because with how I view the situation, and how it's confirmed by the resulting material, I know it's a lie. And I don't like being lied to for the sake of selling a TV show.

Oh, they'll certainly make a cursory attempt to explain why Spock never mentions her. It's going to take literally five minutes of screentime whenever Spock leaves the show. But we know why Spock is there: To sell the show. And it certainly helps that they've got a nice, simplistic character template that they can use, and which a lot of people who never watched TOS think they know about.

I still don't hate the show. I can't. I don't watch it anymore, and most of it is just bland rather than being offensive in its own right. But it's always there, buzzing annoyingly in the background, with its South Park-esque memberberries bullshit.

>member Spock
>ooohhh! I member Spock!
>Spock was so cool and logical
>I member

Except none of it is about actual nostalgia. It's more like borrowed nostalgia. A pop culture nostalgia for something they don't actually 'member.

The minute they announced that Burnham was Spock's foster sister was the minute I was officially out on STD. The leaked Klingon images had me walking towards the door, but tying the show to TOS so directly made me run for it and lock it behind me.

I'm not usually the type to post that I haven't seen something in a braggadocious way, but I am legitimately glad that I my common sense beat out my brand loyalty and my headcanon is clean of this mess. Bless the fools who want or enjoy this, and shame on anyone who saw that kitbashed hackfuck Enterprise and didn't see this coming.

I'm guessing the version that shows up in Variety will look something like this:

They will do what they always do. Blame the hardcore fans for "not giving it a chance" and use it as an excuse to dumb it down even more.

The ONLY time they didn't do this was with TNG and, coincidence I'm sure, that was the show that literally shat money and eclipsed even TOS in terms of success at the time (long-term TOS has remained profitable for longer but this was literally true back then.)

I'd say that's a given, not just considering CBS/Paramount's relationship with Trekkies, but pretty much how all production companies and crew react when the diehards turn on them. Sony before Ghostbusters even had a second trailer. Disney after TLJ. WB after every post-Nolan superhero film that isn't Wonder Woman. And they all pay for it at the box-office: Star Trek Beyond, Ghostbusters, Solo, and Justice League all paid the price, and how much the Trek braintrust lean on that next time will determine how long they'll have to ice the franchise again.

Completely pulled out my ass but CBS probably hired a bunch of "nerd" "pre-millenial" writers and hacks to make it "fresh and new" but they aren't trekkies and missed the core values/strong writing of TOS/TNG/DS9 and only knew the most basic tropes in mainstream culture and probably haven't watched every episode 37 times like most of us more legit trek fans. I refuse to believe that Discovery writers are actual Star Trek fans, they saw the "best" seasons of a few shows and collabe'd their ideas together and got fucking shit

I don't know if it isn't just a sign of the times that Superman and Star Trek would have their souls sucked dry. One was a personification of all that was best in humanity, the other a depiction of humanity at its best. They were colorful, moral, and optimistic. Now, both visually and in story and character, they're bland husks. They're just more shit with explosions and fighting.

This is cultural and to me, slightly ominous. We're like the Rapa Nui of Easter Island tipping over the Moai. Our outlook is grim, and we're defacing the totems that embodied our values and aspirations. When the Man of Tomorrow doesn't want to be here and the Final Frontier is barren, what are we telling ourselves?

STD makes me really sad, like depression-esque so, for this one reason:

When the first half of the show had aired, my dad asked me what I thought of it. I remember him sounding so hopeful because one of the things we bond over is Star Trek. We sometimes watch a re-run episode of TOS/TNG or two while we ate dinner, laughing at the overly dramatic silliness and how Kirk got his freak on with every purdy alien girl that took his fancy, or musing over the decisions that Picard took and whether they were truly for the best. I really wanted to like STD, but when I told him I really didn't like STD, I saw his face drop and the dissapointment in his voice as he gave a small "Oh..."

I didn't think much of it then, and maybe I'm being a little overly dramatic myself, but thinking back it's a splinter in my soul. A distressing twisting splinter.

Fuck you Star Trek Discovery.

I mean, why? We were hopeful when Discovery was announced. We began to fear it for concrete reasons when we learned about what was planned, and then hated it when those fears were confirmed. But it was a rational response. Dismissing the new show, out of hand, knowing nothing about it other than one attached actor...isn't that going a bit too far in the knee-jerk reaction direction?

Are you just opposed to anything that ever comes out under the label 'Star Trek' again? Don't you know that was the exact attitude many die-hard TOS fans had before TNG was released? Will this new show be TNG? Almost certainly not. But if you stop using reason and just react instinctively and emotionally, you've already missed the point.

I don't think so. I also wouldn't blame anyone for similarly dismissing a the next Star Wars or Terminator films. If you think the well is poisoned you don't keep going back for a drink.

It isn't all the same as fans' pre-debut disapproval of TNG. The initial reaction to Discovery is more analogous to that. This time, there's the element of not wanting to see the Picard character retroactively diminished that's justified by how pre-existing characters were handled in the TNG films, JJ films, and STD.

The brand is damaged, and I can't blame fans who treat anything Trek with suspicion. I wouldn't call it a "travesty," it's just a show at the end of the day, but I'm not anticipating it at all. Frankly this coupled with the Spock announcement have me ready to just put a bow on Trek before the powers that be fuck up big and ruin one or both of the greatest characters in science fiction.

If I'd read about this before DSC, I would have been over the moon. Now, I don't trust it. Patrick Stewart is a terrific actor, and without him Picard wouldn't be the Picard we know. But he was never the only person pulling the cart. In fact, he weighed in on some questionable stuff, like demanding more Action Picard stuff. That scene with the offroad vehicle in Nemesis is because Stewart wanted to drive an offroad vehicle.

So the best I can give it is "we'll see". That's all. They'll make it, I'll watch a few episodes, and I'll see if I like it. But frankly, I expect that I won't.

Yup. He had a lot of influence on Insurrection and look at what we got. I think the ONLY thing that needs to be considered is who is running the show. Discovery had plenty of Berman-Trek people behind the scenes but that didn't do anything to improve the writing. He who holds the pen sets the tone.

That would be Spiner actually.

I dont think Berman can be blamed for that. They were making shit Trek movies at behest of the studios, who only wanted action flicks.

Nevermind the one that wasn't really an action flick, Insurrection was cheap as hell, dumb as fuck and an unremarkable two-parter at its heart. So uh... What I blame Berman for is Insurrection.

It's just fucking sad that there's only one good TNG movie, and First Contact still mischaracterizes Picard completely. It just works because it plays off his big Shakespearean theatre chops.

The problem isn't the scene itself, it's the fact that it's there because one guy wanted it. Personally, I liked Nemesis in general. It's just an example of the sort of stuff that made it into Trek because Stewart wanted more Action Picard.

The point of that being that Trek was always more than the sum of its parts. There was a lot of synergy between the people who worked on it, so just one guy coming back to reprise his old role won't automatically make it good. I've grown wary of the typical fan type response, partly because I fell for it myself with JJTrek. In the end Stewart is, as Picard points out more than once in TNG, just a man.

In related-ish news, Hemsworth and Pine may have dropped out of NuTrek 4. Or maybe it's just negotiating fuckery like Takei pulled on Star Trek V.

Midnight's Edge goes over the details with some of their worst writing yet.

>>65583 I think the franchise know's it can't lose the main character Pine. It was just a stupid question to make a bludge point with money grips. Once Hemsworth drops it, behind the back they will give it to Pine.

He's the daddy.

That movie is the reason people confuse Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth. I have no idea where Chris Evans falls into this whole thing but he's definitely involved.

It's a Chris conspiracy.

The problem is the didn't want to do dumb time travel just for the sake of having a sweet whale-based san francisco comedy.

They wanted it for the completely cynical reason that Chris Hemsworth is fucking Thor.

But because Chris Hemsworth is fucking Thor, and Pine ain't no slouch either, they can't afford to make the movie.

Excuse my while I laugh hysterically.

Keep in mind that when Hemsworth was in Star Trek 2009, that was pre-Thor...aka pre-Marvel.

Now he has major name recognition they were hoping to get him back somehow, and I guess doing time travel nonsense was the way to do it. There is a pretty good Mirror's Edge video about it, stating that the whole point of announcing JJ Trek 4: The Search For More Money was all about, surprise-surprise, securing investor money. The movie isn't going to get made, though. Hemsworth and Pine both do not wanna do it unless they get good paychecks from it, and the studio was like 'hey how about we pay you less and you do it anyways' and they were like 'lol no'.

>CBS Accused of Plagiarism Over ‘Star Trek: Discovery’

"Indie developer Anas Abdin cites several similarities between “Star Trek: Discovery” and his game Tardigrades, a point-and-click adventure game that featured a giant blue tardigrade that could instantaneously transport people across the galaxy. Abdin says he posted the game in 2014 on Steam Greenlight, a website that lets developers post early versions of games to gain feedback from players."

>“You shouldn’t worry that it is going to be full of obscenity and stuff. He wants an R-rating to really make those beats of consequence land. If it’s not PG, if someone gets sucked out into space, which we have all seen before, we might see them get disemboweled first” explained Urban. “To me, that was always one of the things I loved about what [original Doctor McCoy actor] DeForest Kelley did. He would actually capture the horror of space. That look in his eyes of sheer terror always struck me when I was a kid.”

There is a Midnight's Edge video about it, there are ALOT of similarities between the two....however if you factor in the time it takes to write a script, build the sets involved and film, and the fact this guy was involved with it at almost the exact same time he made that game, it's quite possible he made that game just to try and get some money out of CBS.

But anyway, here's the ME video that came out a week about about it

I get the show wasn't as bad as it could've been, but INSTANTLY they try to wring every penny out of people who may want to do something decent.

Let him die already. Maybe it would be better if it shows him old and doddering, from the alternate timeline, where he was a pussy and only made it to Captain when he's almost to retirement.
