Somewhere out in the galaxy of Star Trek: Discovery, the original Enterprise from the classic Sixties series is flying around. We’ll probably never see the NCC-1701 USS Enterprise on Discovery, even though it’s been mentioned on the show already. But how would the special effects from the original series match-up with what the starships look like on the most recent version of Trek?

On Wednesday, Dan Costa posted his fan-made video of what the Constitution-Class Enterprise from the original Star Trek might look like if it popped up in Discovery. It’s a convincing rendering, too, and will make hardcore fans believe that new series could get away with showing us this very retro design in the slicker, more contemporary aesthetic of Discovery. When Inverse spoke to Trek expert Larry Nemecek before the debut of Discovery back in September 2017, he said that the key to bringing back the Sixties Trek designs was to “shoot them differently, more creatively.” And this fan video from Costa proves him right.

The season finale for Star Trek: Discovery’s first season is around the corner, airing on Sunday, February 11. There’s no reason to believe a Constitution-class ship like the old Enterprise would show up in the finale, but you never know. In the mid-season debut, “Despite Yourself,” Discovery brought back a reference to the sister ship of the Enterprise, the USS Defiant, and even showed a schematic of what the ship looked like after it got commandeered by the Terran Empire in the Mirror Universe.

The original Enterprise is also a lot bigger than either the USS Discovery or the USS Shenzhou. The Discovery only has a crew of about 130. In the original, Star Trek, the Enterprise had a crew of over 400. In the episode “A Piece of the Action,” Kirk told a space mobster, “there were over 400 guys up there!”

Hopefully, Discovery will show us the hugeness of the Enterprise next to the tininess of the show’s titular ship sometime in the future. But for now, we’ve got this great fan video.

The season finale of Star Trek: Discovery airs on Sunday, February 11, 2018, at 8:30 p.m. Eastern on CBS All Access.


One of the latest challenges to hit Fortnite: Battle Royale requires a steady aim and lightning fast reflexes if you want to succeed at the shooting galleries in this Week 4 challenge, though you’ll have to find them first. Less serious dancing is reserved for a totally different challenge this week.

Back in September, a huge Super Smash Bros. Ultimate leak listed 10 characters allegedly coming to the new roster. At the time we ranked, putting one possible addition from the Fire Emblem universe near the bottom of our list, but based on a compelling new argument it may be time to rethink that ranking.

Gone are the days of “search between” and “treasure maps,” because Fortnite: Battle Royale’s location-based challenges these days involve multiple steps and dancing on top of random landmarks. So where can players dance on top of a Clock Tower, a Pink Tree, and a Porcelain Throne?

Fortnite Season 6, Week 4 kicked off Thursday morning, and with it came the typical seven new challenges. This week, however, they’re all fairly difficult, or otherwise just involve a lot of work. The fifth challenge initially just reads “Dance on top of a Clock Towers,” but it’s essentially one of the multi-stage challenges that we’ve seen before. This time around, however, it’s a bit misleading because it doesn’t actually say “Stage 1” in the title.

With less than two weeks before Halloween, Epic Games is starting to get a little bit more festive with a new Fortnite: Battle Royale Challenge in Week 4. “Ring the doorbell of a house with an opponent inside in different matches” is a very wordy way of telling players to go trick-or-treating.

The Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 6 Hunting Party Challenge continues, and much like Week 3, the focus of the new secret loading screen is Fable, the character that looks like a badass Little Red Riding Hood. We’ve got all the details on how to solve this new loading screen puzzle and the secret this week, but just like in Week 2, there’s a secret banner instead of a battle star.
