but given the advanced state of their tech, am I wrong in pegging this as a third universe? Okay, that's my official head-canon. Something, something, temporal cold war - THIRD UNIVERSE! (So does each new parallel universe also have its own twin mirror universe?)

Also: Why do all futuristic jails in all universes everywhere have force fields with no physical backup? That seems like a major design flaw.

Also also: Why are all the Klingons bald? Strange fashion choice, or genetic disease?

Yeah, I'm going with temporal cold war shenanigans, too. I'm cool with it. It's just that this universe won't feel like the proper universe unless Jeff Combs starts showing up. ;)

Depends on whether you mean the Star Trek movies of recent vintage (or at all), mainstream movies, or dubious horror movies...

By which I mean that I know it's intensely unlikely, but I live in a state of eternal, if somewhat jaded, optimism.

Not a bit, no. Which isn't surprising, but I'd love it if that changed with this series.

you are not wrong

also: that really is stupid. technology goes kaput all the heckin time.

also also: i vote genetic disease because that intrigues the budding microbiologist in me.

I liked the opening titles video, but yeah, the theme tune is a bit dull

The Klingons are consistent with what we learned in Enterprise -- where they explained why the Klingons in TOS look the way they do.

I didn't say they LOOKED like Enterprise Klingons. I said they're consistent with what we learned about what happened to the Klingons in Enterprise. As I elaborated on in my own journal entry on the subject yesterday.

Humans are noticeably less furry than our non-human ancestors. It's not just individuals who choose to shave for fashion; it's an evolutionary thing that seems to go along with a general tendency to look babyish in adulthood.

I think third universe. One where they remember to put pockets on the uniforms.

Yeah I mean basically this IS a reboot. It makes no sense visually or technically.

Klingons, the in universe equivalent of the Cetagandans?

The Cetagandans are an Empire race in the Lois McMaster Bujold 'Vorkosigan' books. Their high born women control the gene pool, and how people look depends on the fashion. They also have a proud warrior class, and are decidedly aggressive.

They just kinda seem like shinier Klingons.

Why do women in the US shave their legs? I mean...really. Baldness is the least of my worries with the Klingon storyline (though I don't know ST canon well enough).
