Stella cartography: Meet the dog with a higher Star Trek: Discovery security clearance than you

Meet Stella. She’s a dog. No, not that dog. Look at the profile pic, silly!

But Stella’s not just any dog. She’s Nicholas Meyer’s dog; that means she sits in on writers meetings for the new TV series Star Trek: Discovery.

We may not know much about Discovery yet — even less since it’s been delayed from January to May — but Stella’s right in the thick of things, and she’s using Twitter to give us a glimpse inside the new series’ development.

Maybe that’s the real reason for the delay … Anyway …

Lucky dog!

Stella’s already giving us a glimpse into the future of Star Trek fashion’s past (or would that be the past of Star Trek fashion’s future?) as well as teasing us with references to subjects such as saucer separation, phaser strength, Ferengi Rules of Acquisition, and Klingon facial structure.

Stella’s also doing her part in teasing the identity of the female lead character in the show, which is set before the original Star Trek.

Meyer’s got an impressive Star Trek pedigree of his own, writing and directing Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, and writing for Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Stella knows this, and mines her “dad’s” work for moments of quoteworthy humor, as any Trek nerd worth their salt vampire would:
