Yeah, Cable TV has learned nothing from Netflix eating their lunch. If your going to do an online only show then its either all or nothing. People don't like to wait and will tune out if the show isn't good from the jump and on top of that have to wait a week for more. Atleast if its all there ill power through in hopes of it getting better.

I can't watch that commercial because it needs a Flash player.

So I'm betting there'll be a youtube link here in about 10min, and hopefully that'll get linked.

Seems like they're setting up Sonequa Martin-Green to be the captain eventually.

Overall, it looks interesting. I hope it's good.

That was good. I'm not a fan of the way the Klingons look, but everything else looked fine. I hope Discovery being on CBS all access doesn't kill it if it turns out to be great.

I dunno. There's a ton of fan speculation that Michelle Yeoh's character dies early on, stuff goes south in the two-hour premiere, etc. If any of that occurs, it kinda works for the trailer.

They look like the ancient klingons that people predicted. Who knows how much klingons have evolved.

That looked much "higher budget-y" than I was expecting. Looks interesting, but since it's the first season, I won't hold it against the show if it feels uneven. Usually seems to take a few years before a Star Trek show gets its legs.

Ship is the most important part of Trek for me.

Not really liking the ancient Klingons. There was a lot of BTS mutterings about how they had zero resemblance to canon Klingons.

there are 2 big reasons why it's obivous that michelle yeoh dies in the first episode, she is the most well known actress AND the mentor figure of the lead

They're meant to be the Ancient Klingons with more "regular" looking Klingons also appearing in the show

Aesthetically, it reminds me of the recent movies. So clearly, the budget is pretty high. But this is edited in a way that it doesn't really tell us much about the quality of the writing. And that's what ultimately matters the most for me in Trek.

Okay, so:

"Ten Years before Kirk, Spock, and the Enterprise"

...Ten years before Kirk is Captain of the Enterprise, Spock is already on the Enterprise under Pike. So is it ten years prior to "The Cage/Menagerie" or ten years prior to "Where No Man Has Gone Before"?

The awful splicing in of her name at the beginning of the trailer was pretty cringe-worthy.

Overall the dialog felt pretty stilted.

"Ten Years before Kirk, Spock, and the Enterprise" makes me think it's ten years before Kirk and Spock were born.

It's 10 years before 1966. This obviously takes place in 1956.

Every episode with him in it would be the Captain asking "How fucked are we?" and him answering "Very". And then they pull a win out of their ass.

I feel like your post here probably put more thought into it than anyone involved with this show, who probably just decided "it's 10 years before the original show".

I feel the same, like this is all / mostly from the premiere; I even wonder if this ship is going to get wrecked and we'll get something like the one in the earlier teasers.
