Well, that is interesting. Doesn't really strike me as Mudd, but I am ready to watch Discovery.

I bet he's going to enjoy the heck out of playing Mudd.

Even despite its stupid delivery system here in the US (The awful CBSInsider service) I'm really looking forward to Discovery. My only hope is that the design of the show skews closer to TOS than Enterprise did.

I wonder why this just finally became official :lol:

From what little I've seen of her on The Walking Dead she seems perfectly capable. I wouldn't mind if the rumors of her being the lead are true.

Would they really give Jason Isaacs, as captain, more of a secondary role?

Sure, why not? Secondary doesn't mean non-existent. Just because the show isn't centered around his exploits doesn't preclude him not being a big part of the happenings.

Yes. The people behind the show have stated that the captain isn't the lead character of the show. Sonequa Martin- Green's character will be.

I never said anything about him being non-existent. In general, I'm puzzled about establishing a "lead character" in what has typically been an ensemble show. Being XO, of course I'd expect her role to be significant. But I'd expect the same for the captain. Not sure I understand singling out a character to be the lead.

I'm on season 3 of Enterprise and boy oh boy am I enjoying it WAY more than I did TNG. When I have a little extra spending money I'm going to grab the model of the NX-01 Refit that never made it into the show.

Finally finished Enterprise. I really enjoyed it and don't understand why it's so maligned.

Outside of both awful versions of the theme song, the only thing I disliked is that they didn't give Archer his big speech at the end.

Friggin Riker ruining two shows.
