I'm now in Vegas for the "con". I ended up taking a bus. I took https://global.handelsblatt.com/mobilit ... ion-886932 which I hadn't heard of about a day before. I gotta take Greyhound back. GH works FAR better for my schedule but the LA bus depot I have to wait for almost 3 hours on before take another bus is kinda sketchy and in a bad part of LA.

As I posted in another forum:
They had a nice mirror universe "museum" w/the emperor's "throne" and various weapons, insignia and uniforms from that universe. Looks like the items were identical to the ones at http://www.startrek.com/article/discove ... -comic-con.

Jason Isaacs was a bit hard to understand from the front due to acoustics/echoes and his accent. I tried to ask Jason Isaacs the first question and either he blew me off (and maybe couldn't answer/wasn't allowed) or honestly couldn't hear it. I asked if we'll see "good" Lorca in the 2nd season. He said something like "bad mic, can't hear". I asked again and asked if this is the last we've seen of Lorca. He blew me off (I don't even remember the reply) and moved onto the mic on the other side! :O

The two folks behind me asked me "what happened?" and were surprised. I just shrugged and said maybe he can't answer.

Was surprised to learn that he was pitched the role and originally turned it down, so he claims. In the process of being convinced that he wouldn't just be in the shadows of Kirk, he knew going in that he'd be from the evil parallel universe.

I was surprised to meet a few folks at the con who hadn't seen ST: D. Was having dinner at a Thai restaurant and it turned out 4 or 5 people to my left were attending the con. One of them hadn't seen ST: D (they didn't want to have to pay for CBS All Access).

Really, Harry Mudd? That reduces the number of eps I'd be interested to see by at least 25%.

LOL! Harry Mudd was in 2 eps of ST:D. The second one he was in (Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad) was actually quite good.

I don't want to spoil too much for you but I kept wondering if we'd see Stella. There were replicas of her in the TOS ep https://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/I,_Mudd_(episode).

Since CBS is still pointing a gun at their own heads while demanding we watch this show on their pay network, I don't see me watching it soon enough for me to remember any spoilers. ;-)

Latest ep (S2:E6 "The Sounds of Thunder") was quite good. Captain Pike is turning out to be an interesting character. It really tied into the Short Trek "The Brightest Star" (the best or 2nd best Short Trek). The Short Trek "The Escape Artist" w/Harry Mudd again was not bad.

The whole Spock thing seems like such a tease. We still (in the show) haven't seen adult Spock.

Prior to S2:E6, some folks (like at work) have commented that some of the S2 eps seem more like Star Trek eps.

I know of at least two "Adult" ST videos, if you are interested. Both feature Spock. ;-)

LOL! I'm not talking about that.

Basically, there's a search for Spock (heh) in season 2. We've seen a child Spock and child Michael Burnham, but they're still searching for Spock.

Anyway, I'm enjoying the show even though it's turned out to be so different from previous Trek shows.
