    (TV) Star Trek: Discovery

    So the new first look trailer came out today...



    ... and it's clearly set in the JJverse. That's a good thing, because I think the Klingons look terrible.

    This just isn't what I want. I want the Prime Universe back. There isn't a lot of "Star Trekiness" in this trailer to get me to want to see it.

    I thought it looked pretty boring.

    Looks alright, though the Klingons make it look more like the Kelvin timeline. I do like that it looks like they are going to do more than the standard aliens, not a fan of it being part of a streaming service though so I'll have to use alternative methods to watch it.
    Do I really look like a guy with a plan?

    The new klingons honestly look more intimidating to me and I would have liked a new series, one in the future instead of the past, but, thats okay. I'll watch it :3

    To enjoy anything in life one must look for simple pleasures, nothing is perfect, but each small wonder makes it seem so.

    This video is not avaiable.
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Anything not in the Roddenberry universe is not star trek, as we know it Jim.

    I can live with the JJ verse as long as Abrams isn't actually directing it. His lack of all sense of the vastness of space really strips out a lot of what makes Star Trek, Star TREK and not Star Wars.

    Ugggh.

    Despite everything I read and heard, I still tried to maintain an optimistic view of the show. Mostly because Bryan Fuller was originally attached. But now I see why he ditched it like a bad habit (even if he was forced to). This is absolutely awful and nothing like what we were promised from the start.

    What a massive disappointment.

    I might watch a few of the first episodes well after they're released, but certainly not on CBS's pay-to-view service. Fuck them for thinking this is what the public (and more specifically, the fanbase) wanted.

    If it's not on tv or netflix I'm never going to watch it, simple as that. As for the content, I reserve judgment - although I absolutely love the jj reboot just because it makes so many nerds blood-spitting mad.

    Agreed. I'm excited for a new Star Trek, period. How it will be, we have way too little info to go on.

    Sure, I'd have liked to seen a new series taking place in a post Dominion War universe, later than 2380, instead of the rebooted series at all, but I'll take what I can get. If it's a success, hopefully we get more, a la the TNG, DS9, Voyager overlap.

    Well, we have the rest of the world as a market now, and the rest of the world isn't familiar with the differences in Star Trek universes.

    Personally I've always been a huge sci-fi fan, but haven't seen any of the Star Trek series, mainly due to the fact that they never aired on TV in my country when they ran, and the fact that the special effects don't stand the test of time for me to bother now.

    The hit and miss for me on this one is the storytelling, where at least I favour the B5, (season 2-4), and BG (2004), due to their focus on the long story, and not only stand-alone episodes.

    All the articles say that it's set in the TV universe, not the JJverse.

    Star Trek: Discovery will be set in the “Prime Universe” (so in the timeline of the original shows, not the J.J. Abrams reboot films), about a decade before Captain Kirk’s five-year mission. “We can redefine the visual style,” he said. “We get to play with all of the iconography of those ships and that universe. Since we are doing this series in 2016, and all of the other series have been produced [at a time that] isn’t as sophisticated as we are now with what we can do production-wise, we’re going to be reestablishing an entire look for the series — not only for the series, but for what we wanted to accomplish with Star Trek beyond this series.”

    On the Discovery.

    The trailer was obviously showing the Shenzhou, because the captain depicted is being played by Michelle Yeoh.

    So I'm assuming our protagonist starts out on the Shenzhou, then gets transferred to the Discovery after some period of time.
