I doubt that. I think this is more about trying to trick people into thinking the Discovery/JJ-verse timeline IS the original Trek timeline.

Here's my prediction : during the first season, we will see a Klingorc described as a Klingon in the Picard show. And at some point there will be a reference to Discovery, spore drive, and/or Michael Burnham. If the show continues there will be more and more such references.

Discovery is not* in the JJ timeline. There have been no references to it at all You can tell by the inclusion of Captain Pike and the whole bit where the Enterprise isn't under construction and newly commissioned in 2259. Where do people get the idea that Discovery is meant to be part of the JJ-verse? I truly don't understand it be (this is a little off topic, feel free to kick this over to the Discovery forum)

And yet the producers specifically say it is not JJ-verse. Repeatedly. They are legally required for it not to be also.

D'oh! Apparently I edited out my own point. I was trying to say Discovery is not JJ-verse.

I've fixed the post

No. Frakes is the only one I've seen dropping hints like this. But it's unclear if he's going to direct and/or guest star in the show. Frakes also posted this image previously:

Still unclear to me if this is meant as director, or if Number 1 is back.

If Brent Spiner is in the show, I hope he teases us by posting a picture of Spot.

I forget where I heard it but I'm pretty sure Frakes confirmed to direct.

It's a teaser and we're complaining the trailer didn't give away the entire plot?


There is nothing about this trailer to complain about because there is nothing to complain about.

Honestly this sort of teaser would only appeal to the real Trek fans. They would be the ones to recognize the significance of the vineyards.

Why are they using the TOS font?

Probably because the people behind it have no respect for Pre-JJ Trek.

I would be willing to bet money that it wasn't a deliberate choice; that whoever made and approved that poster just saw "Star Trek Font" and assumed that they were all the same or something.

I'm not sure if that's better or worse.


Here's a question. On a scale of 1 to 10, how excited are the people here for this show right now? For me it's hovering around a 3, mostly because of who's in charge of it and the rumours I've heard about it.

3 huh? That High?

I'd say a 1, and only because of Patrick Stewart, otherwise -10.
