Regarding the ep "Vaulting Ambition", wow! I never saw it coming w/Lorca.

Was pretty cool to see more of the evil Terran empire.

This show is so dark and even more so w/the evil parallel universe eps. If Gene were alive, I don't think he'd approve of the concept of ST:D at all.

'Star Trek: Discovery' replaces its showrunners (again)
Berg and Harberts are out following claims of abuse and overspending, said THR.
https://www.engadget.com/2018/06/15/sta ... ers-again/

Berg and Harberts were regularly on After Trek and it was interesting to have their insight.

CBS just replaced Fuller's replacements, Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts. Executive producer and co-creator Alex Kurtzman, a Star Trek veteran of both films and TV shows, will take over the role.

Is this show ever going to come out for rental on DVD? I have zero interest in subscribing, or of buying new DVDs, but I'd like to rent them - maybe when I finish Game of Thrones.

I don't know a lot about Kurtzman, but since I can't stand Abrams, I suspect that he (Kurtzman) may be one of the people responsible for the parts of Fringe that I liked.

It's certainly not worth buying - I really wasn't impressed.

Now, The Expanse has been something to get excited about!

When browsing comments on the net, it is quite funny that those who dislike/hate the show or business model (for those in the US) will keep referring to the show as STD. :lol:

It's baaack! I might even go, if it isn't over my car's diminishing range.

Back? I just first learned of it a few months ago and really want to go. Problem is, I don't want fly across the country only for that.

I looked at https://www.startrektour.com/local-area ... irections/ and https://www.startrektour.com/local-area ... rtainment/ and am not sure what else to visit. I've already visited Boston, Philly, NYC (several times, including in the past 2 years), Washington DC (several times) and the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. Didn't notice anything in Toronto that interests me (went there LONG ago).

Thinking I might just make it a trip to http://www.titanmissilemuseum.org/ (near Tuscon, AZ, part of Star Trek: First Contact was filmed there) then Houston for Johnson Space Center then the above tour.

Was surprised when browsing thru old photos for https://www.startrektour.com/trekonderoga/ that "Doc Willie" of Priuschat (http://willieyee.info/ZHPhotoIndex.html) fame has been a presenter and will be again: https://www.startrektour.com/trekonderoga/presenters/. I met him at Prius Connection Detroit in Jan 2009 (Gen 3 Prius unveiling). He showed up on the 1st meeting day in Star Trek uniform.

I'm right now contemplating where I want to go to https://www.creationent.com/cal/st_lasvegas_guests.html in Vegas. Lots of ST:D actors this time. Plane tix have become more than I want to pay, so I guess I'll need to drive. It's over 500 miles/one way. I already looked into other methods (e.g. bus or train) and they're either too long and/or costly. I went years ago to the Vegas convention, well before ST:D existed.

Upstate NY isn't worth visiting from the West Coast unless you like slightly to moderately polluted rivers and lakes, very large forests, Woodchucks (the Northern version of the Redneck, also a very fat, very large rodent) and black flies. Canada isn't far from Ticonderoga, so I'd suggest flying to Montreal or Toronto and driving South to the exhibit. Burlington Vermont is also supposed to be nice. It's just a bit too far for me to have ever visited.

LOL. I've been to Montreal ages ago as I have relatives there but I don't speak nor reach French.

As for Toronto, have been there ages ago before and am not sure there's much of interest for me to see there either. I have two co-workers from there though. Will need to ask them for suggestions.
