I thought all the talk was that Discovery would be set before the JJ Trek so it's still in the "prime" timeline.  At least I'm hoping that's still the case.  

I can accept that the producers (and actors) don't want a show that looks like "The Cage" pilot form the classic series.  Designers continually want to "put their own stamp" on things and re-design uniforms and sets.  That I can live with.

But are the aliens in the trailer meant to be Klingons or something else?
They are in fact Klingons, the writers have stated that the design throughout the history of trek has varied so dramatically that any further designs designate family head crests (paraphrased quote) each house has a particular style of forehead.

Ehh, if it's not broke... But as I said before getting top talent means they're going to get folks who want to do their own thing. Sometimes it works like Classic Klingons into Movie/TNG Klingons and sometimes you get Daleks transforming into Fatleks/Skittles. If they keep the Gene Roddenberry vision alive then that's what keeps it Trek versus generic sci-fi.

Did anyone go see Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan in the theater? It was one of those Fathom Events things. It really was awesome to see it on the big screen again, after 35 years. We went Thursday night, and had about 50 people there. The theater was about a 25 minute drive on country roads to a near by town. Basically what we had to do back then as well.

I found out too late about the ST2 screenings. At least, there weren't any close ones that I could see (found out the same day).

As for Discovery, I'm not too crazy about it. I like the idea of doing something in the "classic" continuity, but I really dislike things like the changed Klingon appearance. They were good enough, why did Abrams and Discovery have to change it up? It was unnecessary. And why is it on a paid service, when we've been able to watch it for free over the air for years?

I had heard that Colin Baker was making a guest role in one of the Star Trek Continues.  Nice small part owing to limited time for filming in the USA.  But I was pleasantly surprised to find Nicola Bryant (Peri) as the latest guest star this week.  Not just a cameo, but full on whole episode main guest.  "To Boldly Go Part 1" on Youtube among others.  I've enjoyed just about all the episodes and been impressed by the last few guest cast members involved.
