"So lets make another Trek prequel like the one everybody hated before, but add all that annoying lens flare that everybody hated recently. That should be a big hit."

Pass. Is show not airing on CBS? If this is a web only show then even the suits at CBS must not have a ton of faith in this.

Umm, I guess I'm on the outside here but that looked rather cool.

Jesus Christ. Max said it in the other thread but I think JJ Abrams finally met his match when it comes to being the king of lens flare.

I'm not super put off by the trailer though somethings about it just ring wrong. "My species was designed to know when the moment of death was approaching..." what? Who would design a species for that? Makes no sense.

Just like every other Star Trek I expect it will take a few seasons for people to understand how good it was. I fucking hated Voyager until I watched the first three seasons back to back on Netflix. Even TNG wasn't great till season 2 and that was years and years after people had forgotten TOS. People diss Enterprise but taken as a whole series it actually built pretty well to it's conclusion.

And of course Deep Space 9. "How can it be Star Trek if there is no Trekking?" might have been the best of them all once you got to see the texture of everything happening.

So I'll give this one time to settle. It's only been a decade or so since the last Star Trek but thanks to Netflix and so on we have the constant reminders of the past, unlike when TNG came around so it is going to have an uphill battle contending with the past.

But DAMN less fucking lens flare please. Oh, and if you have to subscribe to CBS Online or whatever, forget about it. Nail. Coffin.

Surprised they didn't call it Star Trek Diversity.

Star Trek has always been about diversity.

This doesn't look too bad, but I'm tired of prequels and going backwards. I'd rather see something set after the TNG/DS9/Voyager era entirely.

Yeah, show seems like it might be alright. I want to give it a shot, but not enough to subscribe to another media service.

Hope they decide to license it out later on.

They have no confidence in this show at all, it will not be on the network, and thrown up via a paywall for their streaming service. What a load of BS. Then again, it does save us from watching this epic failure.

And yet we know who they will blame when it fails.
