Topic: Star Trek: Discovery

If you've read the reviews (google it) it's superb and cinematic

For those of you who don't know there was a cinema screening of 1+2 the other day

The reports are really positive

The season is split (I guess we get a cliff-hanger in Nov) then it resumes in Jan

I look forwards to seeing it, they spent GOT-ish cash on it per ep so should be amazing

The trailer looks really cool

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Great to hear!

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

I've just watched a couple of trailers.

Not sure what I watched, but it wasn't borne of the Star Trek that I know and love.

*sigh*

That's the second biggest X I've ever seen.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

The bit at the start before the titles made me smile

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

The pilot was so good I watched it twice already.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

looks pretty cheap, but space scifi war stuff is something i like to watch, i think Expanse set the bar a bit too high for me, when we talk about the cgi, the space ships in this show looks like they r made of plastic tongue

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

That's some good shit, if I do say so myself.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Not sure what to think of it yet, will give it a few episodes. Production quality was outrageous high though so will probably watch it just for that.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Only thing i have to complain is the name. the Creators clearly didn't think it through; Star Trek: Discovery's abbreviation is STD.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Why all the lens flare.?  It ruins entire shots.  It's a good show otherwise.

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

Reducing the gap between prime and kelvin timelines.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Started out great - went slowly downhill the enitre time and ended in a way that makes me want to watch the next episode.

That hasn't happened before big_smile

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Mixed feelings, need to see more before opinion...

...where did I put that rat's ass I could give?

Daemons are benevolent or benign nature spirits, beings of the same nature as both mortals and gods, similar to ghosts, chthonic heroes, spirit guides, forces of nature or the gods themselves.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Hm, I dont get why this series are getting so much hate from die-hard fans, what are they not liking? I guess i cant call myself a true fan since i've only seen Enterprise and the newer Star Trek movies, Enterprise also did get a lot of hate in the days if i recall correctly.

But STD delivered the best sci fi pilot i've seen in a long long time. Cant wait for the rest of the season.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

No one hates Star Trek more than the fans.

I come from TNG, haven't seen DS9 or Enterprise. That might be why I am biased, I compare it too much for the good old Star Trek from my youth.

Maybe the way Klingons are portrayed (make-up mostly) is one reason for some hate, don't know.

I felt that they didn't speak fluently enough, but then again how could I know - I don't speak Klingon.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

I think the main issue with it, is that it doesn't "feel" like Star Trek.

It's an immensely popular franchise, with one of the oldest, largest and most committed of fanbases of any TV show ever, but I don't think they've made a show the fans want to see.

Just saying.

That's the second biggest X I've ever seen.

The "Die Hard" "old school" trekkies that hate the action oriented new movies and apparently this show are also an aging dwindling fanbase, there simply aren't enough of them to support the creation of new shows with production costs this high.

Star Trek needs new followers and the old drama/more intellectually driven stories just don't bring in the numbers these days.

It does have a slightly different feel to the old school stuff, but I really enjoyed it for what it was, I'll definitely keep watching. Perhaps drawing new younger viewers into this version will get some of them to go back and watch the older stuff as well....

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

A second season is extremely likely, NetFlix paid the bill for season one for worldwide rights outside USA/CA so for CBS it's all profit

If that's the case, then why bother calling it Star Trek at all?  I can't see fans of this show appreciating any of the previous series - the entire look, feel and budget is vastly different.

That's the second biggest X I've ever seen.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Production value is fantastic, acting was good, plot was ok, likeability of the characters so far is okish, ending was different and unexpected for a Star Trek show.

But so far a spark is still missing but atleast i diden't feel bored.

Funnily enough, this is the exact same conversation, with the same arguments, that was going on right before TNG started.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

The Klingons were my main gripe as well. Takes them an hour to garble out one line of dialogue, and the prosthetics are way overboard. Feels like a whole race of Sloth from The Goonies, with none of his charm!

Other than that I quite liked it and am excited to see the season.
