    Here are some Discovery updates that did not get a lot of press due to the Picard announcement.

    1. Somehow, Kenneth Mitchell is returning for Discovery Season 2

    During one panel at the convention, Kenneth Mitchell, the actor who played the Klingon Kol in Season 1 of Star Trek: Discovery, revealed he's returning to the series! Fellow panelist Mary Chieffo (who plays L'Rell) on the show said: "Jean-Luc Picard is back, and Kenneth Mitchell is back." Link below for full story...

    2. The Klingons will be redesigned again, including L’Rell

    During the same panel about Klingons, Mary Chieffo hinted at details about what's next for her character, L'Rell. At the end of Season 1, L'Rell basically took over the entire Klingon Empire. "It is a time of peace and there is a certain aesthetic that comes with that. We are not at war, so I tease that there is not only a Klingon aesthetic change, there is a Chancellor aesthetic that L'Rell gets to embody," Chieffo said. Link below for full story...

    3. Discovery Blu-ray and DVD finally coming in November

    Though you can stream all of Star Trek: Discovery Season 1 anytime on CBS All-Access in the United States (or Netflix globally) the show hasn’t been available on home video, yet. But, that will change on November 16, 2018. At Star Trek Las Vegas, CBS confirmed that the Blu-ray of the first season will contain a ton of special features, including deleted scenes. Link below for full story...

    4. New ‘Deep Space Nine’ documentary could lead to HD remastering of the whole show

    Since 2017, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine co-executive producer Ira Steven Behr has been working on a documentary about the '90s Trek spin-off called What We Left Behind. At the Las Vegas convention, Behr said that he and the team behind the doc were "committed" to a 2018 release, meaning that sometime before the end of the year, DS9 fans are going to freak out. Link below for full story...

    Another Klingon redesign, hm, perhaps they're toning down the look some? Maybe Hair? Maybe Browless Klingons?

    I'm hoping it's as simple as including other types (TOS and TNG) of Klingons

    Thinking of Hollywood, I am thinking that this is more due to money and expenses than anything.

    The more complex make-up, the more time it is for the actors and artists to do prior to shooting. For a movie, I can see extensive make-up working as it is a finite time of shooting. For a TV Series, which can go for years, I imagine it gets old for the actors and expensive for the producers.

    Re-mastered to HD for DS9... yes please. Smile
