I rewatched the whole season on my phone so that I could capture my favorite spaceship moments. Anyone else have their own?


Why save the best for last...

Oh wow, the Gagarin looks a lot like the NX-01.

Also, this is amazing work. These are all going into my desktop background rotation. Thank you!

Yes! I thought the same thing about the Gagarin. The Shenzhou seems to share some of that DNA too.

Oh hey, I missed some!

I have about a dozen more just of Discovery in various poses. I think I'm infatuated.

What does it say about me that I just inherently love every Klingon ship design? These are some gorgeous shots!

Speaking of wallpaper, does anyone know of any high-resolution wallpaper sources for Discovery? As far as I can tell, there's no official CBS wallpaper, and honestly I haven't seen anything from the actual show that's any better than these screen captures. They do the job for a laptop, but not so much for a 27-inch high-pixel-density desktop!

That's all I came across as well -- which is why I'm using your shots on my mediocre laptop screen.

For your wallpaper pleasure, here's a zip of all the screenshots I made, with the black border cropped out:


You'll see that this includes some non-wallpaper-worthy shots and misfires, but the more the merrier I figured.


Someday soon I will get around to my personal season wrapup post, but it's hard to remember when it seems that only Glenn and I are still actually looking at the forum :)

Thanks for this! Yes, it's a bit lonely here, but I'll look forward to your wrap-up post. I'm already thinking about doing another watch through as soon as this semester is over.

These are *gorgeous*!! The disc-under-y shot is probably my favorite of the bunch you put up, but wow. I was watching the show on my old computer (from 2010). Having just gotten a new one, and looking at these photos, it's really unbelievable how beautiful the ships are.

O HAI everyone, this picture was on my desktop today, and I just noticed that the earth is backward in this emblem! That is all.

So even the geological history of Earth is mirrored? Fascinating!

Have we explored the possibility that we’re looking at the logo reflected in a mirror and we are, in fact, living among Terrans right now?!

  • I had missed some of the bonus content and am finally getting to your coverage of S1 ep1 Caretaker. I've really enjoyed it. I have seen the first 3 or 4 seasons back when they originally aired but haven't seen any since then. I can't say that Voyager stuck with me, it's my least favorite Trek. So my question for anyone is: What are the 5-10 best episodes of Voyager?
  • I am not the biggest Voyager fan. The series never lived up to the potential I thought it had. So my disappointment in it is all on my end as a viewer. That being said I recently watched the premiere episode again and was impressed by how good it was. The intro starts with a text crawl that looks like it came from a 16 bit video game. Its terrible. I don't think it was needed, some other contextual clue would have been better. The intro then drops us right in the action with Maquis being chased by Cardassians and disappearing. This is more action than most episodes get right off the bat. The main function of a premier is to show us the crew, the ship and the setting. Voyager does an excellent job introducing the crew. Disgraced officers, rebels and a mix of new and veteran Starfleet personnel promises for an interesting show. Captain Janeway is fully fleshed out from the get go, they did a great job making her character feel real for the audience. The cameo by Quark is also very well used, setting up a crucial friendship between Paris and Kim. They spend enough time and give us something about all of our main cast here which is a very strong start. The ship doesn't need alot of time and doesn't get it. It can't compare to the Enterprise so they don't try. It's a smart choice. The plot in how they ended up in the situation is where this gets a little thin. I actually think they would have been better served by making the alien more incomprehensible rather than a hologram that babbles. Janeway makes a difficult and understandable choice, but if I was a crewman I would be mightily pissed off. This is a strong start for the series and is the second best premier, after DS9, in my opinion. It was way lower for me prior to this rewatch, so I am somewhat surprised by Voyager here.
