    Ethan Peck, at NYCC, on….

    …Spock: “"We have to start Spock in a place where we see how he becomes the Spock we know standing beside Kirk on the bridge of the Enterprise."

    …his audition: “The audition was absolutely outrageous. In the beginning, I didn't know what I was reading for, but toward the end I found out who it was and had a panic attack. A few days later, I got a text message from the casting director that said, 'Welcome aboard, Mr. Spock.'”

    More Disco casting news out of NYCC:

    Sonequa Martin-Green: "My husband, my amazing husband, Kenric (Green), the love of my life, is going to be on the show. I can't say in what capacity yet. But that's very, very exciting. And I'm incredibly grateful."

    Spanish born actor Javier Botet is joining Star Trek: Discovery in a mystery role. The actor, who was born with Marfan syndrome – a genetic disorder of the connective tissue which results in compromised eyesight/organ function and an out-of-whack skeletal system burdened by extra height and overly flexible joints – has been making a career out of playing creatures on screen.

    The one that Botet is said to be playing on Discovery is simply described as “old”. He’s said he had been filming in Toronto with Doug Jones, so might he be playing a fellow Kalpien? Possible, as he’s said to stand almost 6’ 7” in his socks and has very slender limbs. I’m wondering how permanent that role is and if he would be appearing in the short trek featuring Saru or would he feature in the series proper.

    The link below speculates what that “old” creature might be and how it might tie in with S2. If correct, it could be a spoiler for some, so beware: https://www.cinemablend.com/television/2459476/creature-actor-javier-botet-reveals-new-star-trek-discovery-role

    A matter of tone: Why Discovery hasn’t felt like Star Trek.

    Update by Ketwolski on the lawsuit brought against CBS & Netflix by the indie gamer Anas Abdin, who is the developer of the adventure game Tardigrades.
    Judging by some of the comments on Anas's website, his game has been well known within certain circles for years.

    According to showrunner Alex Kurtzman, the Spock of Discovery is not yet the Spock we know from TOS.
    Owing to certain experiences, “both logic and emotion have failed” him.

    Season 2 Trailer: Spock Sees the Future (Alert: Trailer could be considered spoilerish)


    Star Trek: Discovery returns for Season 2 on Thursday, Jan. 17.
    Steams on Netflix the next day. In the UK should be available from 8am, Saturday, Jan 19.

    S2, E1:

    So, Stamets appears to be making good on his wish to bail ship….

    Recall from S1:


    Meanwhile, does anyone else feel that Lorca – whose family had been in the fortune cookie-making business for generations – is somehow lurking like The Phantom of the Opera viz-a-viz the fortune cookie message “Not every cage is a prison, nor every loss eternal”? Even Lorca’s ready room feels like it’s waiting for him.

    I've avoided this thread in hope of having no spoilers and by doing so I had no idea it had started.

    I'm not sure if I will start it straight away or let a few episodes build up. Binge watching shows have ruined that weekly climax for me.
