Were these sculpted digitally?


Either way, I don't understand how this happens. This isn't material shrinkage. It's just apathy, and not just from DST but from the licensor as well.


Make mine Minimates.

Not entirely unexpected but could a Pike series be on the horizon? (Star Trek: Horizon?)

Clip shows are absolutely a way to create a less expensive show. Recaps can be used as filler but they're not the same thing at all, especially when you're talking about a recap that's less than a minute long.


Also, CBS All Access is not network TV. There's no requirement for episodes to be a certain length to meet broadcast standards. For example, HBO has been prefacing Game of Thrones with recaps from the beginning and their episodes run anywhere from 50 to 81 minutes long. So in the case of on-demand streaming services, recaps only add to the cost of an episode because, unlike clip shows, they're not replacing new content, they're adding to it.


Sure, you can rewatch the entire series before watching the next episode. OR you can simply watch the Cliffs Notes version for half a minute, reviewing only what you need to, and save some time.  :D

While people watch shows, most don't study them. The purpose of the "previously on" bits isn't so much a recap as "THIS specific thing is what you need to remember for this episode!"

I wanted a large spacedock as well, but I figured they couldn't make it happen in a realistic and economical way so that it would be less than like $40.


They made a Death Star work but there was more demand for Star Wars even back then.
