Star Trek's Monstrous Timeline

Star Trek creators are trying to make a new Star Trek series that will appeal to audiences but are we losing something? Star Trek continuity is on shaky ground now. The technology and appearance of starships is far more advanced compared to any previous Star Trek shows. The ship is slick and shiny.... very high tech for a show 10 years before Captain Kirks USS Enterprise NCC 1701

Okay so the Klingons really need to be intimidating and monstrous given scary is fun right? Lets face it, Star Trek Discovery is set a decade before the original series in which Klingons had smooth foreheads. So what if the special effects were crap in the 60's...

The change in appearance was explained in a story arc in Star Trek Enterprise and DS9. Some wanted to boldly go back where no fan had gone before, Roddenberry era. hating these storylines. The thing is lots of fans just accept that Star Trek's classic budget was restricted which did not allow for fancy Klingon prosthetics and costumes.

Wrong say other fans. We love the Klingon Star Trek Enterprise episodes! These episodes are brilliant but yet again continuity is been cancelled out by Star Trek's new Discovery series. ... with monsterous Klingons! Isn't this great! Creatures, we love monsters and War!

Set roughly ten years before the events of Star Trek: The Original Series,[1] the show sees the united Klingon houses in a war with the United Federation of Planets that involves the crew of the USS Discovery

NO, NO! Never, never cry other fans!!!!!!

So which side of the fence are you on?

Classic Star Trek, Enterprise, DS9 or Discovery?

Some say the only way to enjoy watching Star Trek Discovery is to pretend all the other Star Trek shows never ever happened, like wowsers! Can you believe that?  First, Star Trek Enterprise was blamed for ruining Star Trek, attacking Berman and Braga.

So will fans hate Star Trek Discovery for changing Star Trek's continuity, even more?. Others might love it for being completely different. Change is exciting right? Where do you stand?


Aren't you looking forward to boldly trekking out where no fan or klingon has gone before?

Live Long and Prosper

I accept the limited budget of the first series. (Remember when Next Gen revisited Trouble with Tribbles and someone asked Worf about the difference in Klingon appearances?) But Discovery took it too far. They aren't Klingons anymore.

Worf didn't want to talk about Klingon Eugenics which was a form of bio engineering to enhance the klingon race. If memory serves there was a war on at the time and one thing led to another and the end result? Worf - his character clearly demonstrated todays enemies can be tomorrows friends.

I put it down to the endless quest for more money. Which sometimes supercedes story.

I see no reason to worry about such things. If the storytelling is good and reasonably accounts for this sort of thing, I enjoy the product for what it is, and how well it captures the essence of Trek. That's what's important, isn't it?

Perhaps we're going at this wrong. Why does it all have to work together anyway? If we see the various series as different entities filtered through the lens of the times they were made in, then we can create more of a collection of works rather than one whole story.

I think the show creators are in the awkward position of trying to appeal to modern audiences while staying true to the spirit of the original series. Audiences would have a hard time accepting the limited FX of the original series but I agree it loses some of the charm of the original. There’s room for both I guess.

We must think of
Seventh-Heaven as
our final goal; to
strive with all our
might to reach the
Great Beyond...
You willing to let
the passing world go?
Only love remains: Jesus.
God bless you.
