Film and television prop design company Walter Klassen FX has been doing a lot of work for Star Trek: Discovery, from Klingon weaponry to Starfleet gear, and recently WKFX has been sharing some wonderful photography of their constructions on social media.
The Corvan star system, which appears on the Star Trek: Star Charts as near the Federation/Klingon border is home to the Corvan gilvo, which by the 24th century has become an endangered species.
The creature appears in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “New Ground.” Perhaps the reason the Corvan gilvo is endangered is related to the dilithium mining on the planet, or perhaps a consequence of the Klingon bombardment?

“I was born in 1960; I was six years old when the first series started airing. So I’m watching it on network television with my family in it’s first run. That’s how far back I go. So every incarnation of Star Trek ever since I’ve been aware of, loved. So to now be wearing one of these (gestures to badge) on a Starfleet uniform for my job is mind blowing. It’s mind blowing.” ~Doug Jones
“And the thing that I just continue to ask of people, if they’ve been raising concerns, I say, have your concerns, just see it first before you make declarations. And then if, if you still believe what you’re saying about the concerns, then of course feel that way. But just give it a chance to see what it is.” ~Anthony Rapp
“My first Star Trek convention was 1976, so I’m a dyed-in-the-wool Star Trek fan. As such I wanted to work for other Star Trek fans. Obviously because I’m in the business of popular entertainment I’d like it to have a broader audience, but if it makes everyone who loves Star Trek happy, I’ll be happy.” Akiva Goldsman
“I hope they (the fans) can see how much love went into making it…from what I’ve seen it’s so beautiful. Visually stunning, and all I can tell you is that the people who are in front of and behind that camera were doing it with so much enthusiasm and love. I hope that comes through the screen.” ~Wilson Cruz
Now, just days before the launch of a new Star Trek adventure,
Hallmark has announced that one of the newest starships in
the Federation fleet will be coming home to you next holiday season.
“I just want to the fans to see it, because they’ve been waiting in anticipation for so long. Know that we did it with great love and we did the best that we can and I’m sure you will enjoy it.” ~Michelle Yeoh
“Looking forward to them actually seeing the show instead of theorizing about the show. I’m really excited for them to see the themes and stories that we’re trying to tell.” ~Ted Sullivan
“We’ve been able to talk around it, but I’m so excited to get into the nitty and gritty.” ~Sonequa Martin-Green
