The one thing that bothered me most about the trailer is just how... Generic, it looked. It didn't look like Star Trek bar when the Vulcans were actually on-screen, to me.

I'm not a fan of the Klink redesign, but I wasn't really expecting them to be exactly the same as before either.

So is this supposed to be in Classic TV Trek or Movie Reboot Verse? Cause the "new klinks" make me think Reboot.

When they started the show, the producers said it was going to be the prime universe (main timeline), but now, I dunno. My guess is that it isn't a reboot, but a reimagining. Modernise the shit out of it etc.

Just... They went a bit far.

I was never into Star Trek before the new movies; the catalog of shows just seems like a lot to jump into.

This seems like a new start, so I'll give it a try.

Very far. I'm not sure why they even bothered with a prequel style series anyways.

Something something Kirk prequel era Abrams etc.

So-so article in general. The thing that stuck out to me was "never been done before". Why, because an ultra-progressive future where race and gender don't matter is somehow going to be different because she's black (like Sisko?) or a woman (like Janeway?).

There is a lot that Star Trek can do, but I really dislike this attitude that the casting alone is somehow breaking new ground.

Personally, I'm more worried about her being a Mary Sue. First human ever to go to the Vulcan science academy? Yeah, that'll go well, if they follow established canon.

Which they probably won't.

Yeah that shouldn't be possible, unless she has a genetically enhanced intellect like Dr. Bashir.

Well... Yeah. Star Trek is supposed to BE like Star Trek.

How long has it been since Enterprise ended? 13 years or so? Yeah. Trek is best when they have a chance to develop the characters. It's easier to do when you have 22 40 minute episodes per season as opposed to 2 hour long movies that come every 2-3 years.

The quality of the movies is dipping though. I have tried 3 separate times to watch Star Trek Beyond. The furthest I have gotten is like an hour into it.

Not surprising. It's a boring film. Reminded me of the weaker Next Gen films.

It flopped at the BO as well.

Will be available on Netflix for the rest of us. But apparently won't be available on U.S. Netflix.

Basically Enterprise. And parts of Star Trek Beyond.

So apparently ST: Discovery is gonna be TV-MA. I really hope this isn't Stargate Universe all over again.
