I haven't looked through it in detail, but TrekCore has screencaps and production photos.
Hey all -- just joined EAS.  I've been viewing the site for quite a while, figured it was time to make it official.  So, hardcore TOS fan here, and have always been fascinated by the Enterprise's tech, particularly the bridges and control panel layouts.  I'm hoping one of you can help me:

In The Undiscovered Country director Nick Meyer requested side extensions be added to Spock and Uhura's consoles, ostensibly to allow them to favor the main viewscreen for better shots.
The communications extension featured, from the quick glances I got, typical Meyer details similar to those on the helm console -- a row of black toggle switches, a bank of sliders, manual input keys and what looks to be a couple of vertical rows of notated buttons.  I have never been able to find a detailed shot of this.

Would anyone here have a really clear image or, better yet, an Okudagram-esque layout of this console extension ?!? 

I've honestly been looking for years with no luck, so you'd make a frustrated Trekker EXTREMELY happy.
Looking forward to hearing back.


Yeah, how they set up the sequel was interesting. (I didn't expect to say this when I first heard about this one.) Here's hoping they get the chance to *do* the sequel.

I saw it tonight as well. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. The sequel set up was pretty awesome.
I got out of Power Rangers about a half an hour ago. It was better than I was expecting. If I had one complaint, it would be that they could have had the Rangers Morph earlier than they did.

Another good episode tonight. Taking in last weeks episode, they seem to be jumbling up series of events of how the eventual situations come to be. Not bad, just wasn't expecting what I saw. Needing to move the plot forward.

Amos (aka, What's his name or Tyrol with Anger Issues as I call him) mentioned in a recent episode that his parents died and he was raised by someone named Lydia.  Other than issues related to that, I think he has some other kind of mental issues.  As for Holden, its clear that he wants to be an archetypical Heroic Good GuyTM though whether that's due to guilt or just wanting to be better I'm not sure.

Avasarala has changed from being a hawkish hardass to being the voice of reason in the UN governmental meetings since learning about the conspiracy at the end of the first season.

And as a side note, season 1 did seem to focus a lot on Miller, character wise anyway.  Maybe they'll focus on someone else with the rest of this season.

So I'm caught up finally on season one. I have mixed feelings. I like the overall world building of the show and the lengths they go to get the science right...or at least as close to right as possible. On the other hand, I don't care about any of the characters. Its not that I dislike them, just none of them are interesting. They're all the most boring lifeless people I've ever seen.

Miller is about the only exception and that's only partly because I like Thomas Jane.
Maybe that's supposed to be the point. These are just ordinary people, but even for ordinary people that have been swept up in something bigger than any of them, I don't particularly care about them. None of them have anything one thing that makes me want to know more about them or invest any time in them. Is Naomi OPA? I'm not sure, maybe...but it doesn't seem to matter. Is what's his name something more than just a thug with something to prove beyond loyalty to Naomi? Doesn't seem that way. Is Holden looking to redeem himself for past guilt or live up to some unfulfilled potential. Not sure.

Hopefully season two fleshes this out more and builds more upon these characters.
