A bit more information on the cast

Recommended Posts

Discovery news? Got it. The headline is implied.

Not sure he looks all that much like Dorn. Maybe in the hairline a little. Dorn was practically a GQ model back in the day. In the Klingon makeup he looked well Klingon.

So this also implies what insiders speculated, suing Axanar was planned in part because their new show was to be set during the period Axanar was set in, and they did not want confusion, and also they did make a profit from a fan production.

Maybe this could be added to Discovery news 2017. Just an idea. Then it won't get lost in the maelstrom.

The lawsuit against Axanar came down well before this series was announced, and given how information is only slowly trickling out?  It's way too early to say if the series was the reason for the suit.  I think it had to do more with the Axanar team's merchandising off of ST's intellectual property when other fan films weren't

That guy looks NOTHING like Dorn. 

Agreed. Except for only superficial points, they look nothing alike.

The article implied it is all, and he might be wrong. If a CBS person comes here and someday clarifies the mess, it would be nice, but the main litigation could not have been the only factor. Studios like to borrow ideas and copy each other. Even the ship looks like an older MacQuarrie design. If they are using the FASA RPG, the Four Years War, and the period, it sure seems an awful close coincidence. I can see the author making that jump. The show, however, might be foolish to make it, as it would instantly date the show to a small period in time.

McQuarrie's Enterprise design from the mid-'70s was originally commissioned by and is now owned by Paramount/CBS anyway, so it's not as if the studio has borrowed it from someone else.  

As for the Axanar implication in the article?  All I gleaned was that there is a 4 year Klingon war before the time of TOS; that's not necessarily an idea owned by the writers of Axanar, especially since they themselves were inspired by TOS" "Whom Gods Destroy."
