In the cover story about Star Trek: Discovery that was published in the August 4, 2017, issue of Entertainment Weekly, journalist James Hibberd recounted a moment on the set when Jason Isaacs
(as Captain Gabriel Lorca) ad-libbed the phrase "for God's sakes!" as a new ending to a line. Kirsten Beyer, who wrote the episode, explained to Isaacs that he couldn't insert "for God's sakes" into his dialogue because one of the rules that Gene Roddenberry
set for the universe he created states that in his vision of the future in which all "Star Trek" media is set, religion--and therefore all conceptions of "God"--no longer exist. Isaac's sarcastic retort to Beyer was, "how about 'for fuck's sake'? Can I say that?" And Beyer's response was, "You can say that before you can say 'God.'" However, in the 2009 Star Trek reboot, Karl Urban
(as Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy), expresses his frustration by swearing, "good God, man!" and "my God, man!" It also does not explain the twist at the ending of the original pilot Star Trek: The Original Series: Bread and Circuses
(1968). See more
Despite being a prequel, set 10 years before the original Star Trek and more than a century before The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager, the Discovery is far more advanced than any of the ships from those series (spore drive, holographic displays, automated self-covering spacesuits, etc.). The first Starfleet ship that was seen using holographic communications (as opposed to a standard viewscreen) was the Defiant in Deep Space Nine, set approximately 120 years after Discovery. See more
