    I like the Communicator, and the phaser pistol. I don't like the ship designs, or the Klingons as envisioned by Roddenberry (because they never made it into production for a reason, even if because of budget). I still do not like any of the concepts of the Discovery or the Shenzhou because of where this show is (supposed to be) in the timeline. Federation ships as we know them, have nacelles on pylons, even if thick ones. There are no delta shaped "wings". The saucer section is NEVER concave. Why would you indent the top of the saucer section???

    It's all style and drama over science and exploration. The tech and designs have no reason to evolve and no tech tree. What will be the range of the transporters? Why? What will be the power of the engines, and what will "Warp 1" mean in the Discovery timeline? How will they explain away THE Enterprise 1701 when it lives in this timeline with Discovery and the Shenzhou?

    They got some of the props right, but the Klingons are still a HUUUUUUGE fail, as are the ships and all the interiors.

    IN MY STUBBORN OPINION, of course! :anim_59:

    The Klingons look ridiculous, like something you'd see in a Hellraiser movie. The Starfleet uniforms.....well the collar on the duty one is outright silly as is all the gold lame' everywhere on it. Then the boots with starfleet insignia and silver soles. Actually the away uniform looks like a better duty uniform. Basically, it all looks like the kind of crap hoite toite fashion designers create.

    Pretty sure the klingons are fashioned after the creature from the Black Lagoon

    Aren't those the new Romulans in Discovery? :P Even the tribbles got a makeover.

    Seriously though...

    Why do they have to make such OBTUSE changes? They could have been way more subtle with those Klingons, like they did for Sarek, who now looks like a Vampire Lord. :rolleyes: And why would they use those holographic displays on the ship if they were trying to claim this is in the prime timeline? BTW, I sure hope they are not holding on to that line, because only the dullest of the dull would see any similarity between what we see in the teaser stuff for Discovery and the pre-TOS, post-ENT series timeline. This simply does not fit at all. It is obviously a reboot and not a continuation or even a prequel.

    This is like JJ Abrams star trek with BSG elements and mass effect. No way the star Trek I remember. Sad this is just about destruction and blowing shit up. This is not star trek at all. Since netflix is blocking us viewers here is the cbs version. New trailer

    This is no doubt going to be successful because of how idiotic our race is. They like to see stuff blow up.

    More corporate sodomizing of Roddenberry's corpse it would seem. Such cynical earnestness at raping the ST fanbase, it's disgusting.

    Discovery Producer #1. "Let's generate buzz for this crapfest by changing the Klingons look. That's sure to get ratings!"

    Discovery Producer #2. "I love it! BTW, do you like the smell of my farts?"

    Discovery Producer #1. "Your farts are sublime! I'd like to can them for future sniffing."

    Discovery Producer #2. "You're too kind. Now, let's get back to destroying the ST franchise via bad ideas."

    I liked that because of the sentiment, not because I think Star Trek Discovery sucks. I am still completely openminded about that and will have a look and see for myself. That is the reason why I basically haven't really read most of the posts in this thread so I can remain as unbiased as possible. Technically I will thus be going into this show the same way I did SGU because I had not seen or heard much of anything for that show before I started watching it either. Maybe I'll turn out to be just as disappointed by Discovery. That'd be quite something. I probably wouldn't seek out a discoverysucks forum though as first of all it can all be discussed right here and secondly they didn't cancel SGA to make Discovery, so it's a bit different.

    Maybe with them being busy screwing up the big screen movies TPTB won't have time to muck this one up?

    BTW, is this new show the one that is going to be available by paid subscription only? If that's the case they can kiss my hairy feline ass! Star Trek TV content has always been free and I'm not so "thirsty" that I'm going to start shilling out money to continue watching this worn out franchise. If they wanted to be paid via a subscription service they should have done a deal with Netflix. I'm not subscribing to CBS paid service or any other service -- period! It's simply not worth it and I know I'm not the only one who feels this way.

    I believe I heard someone mention a while ago that the show is paid subscription on CBS but free on Netflix in parts of the world other than USA. I haven't checked the facts though.

    Yes the first episode will air on tv but the rest will be on netflix/CBS all access. Netflix is for international viewers only though. US/Canada will need to watch it on CBS.

    We are all open minded, but the general trend that this series is going towards is that dark and gritty crap from BSG which made it painful to watch. Yeah once in a while Dark themes are okay, but to put a whole show behind a theme that does not suit trek which is more towards space exploration and science, really does not paint a pretty picture.

    TNG is predicting a very accurate future though

    Yes, it is an accurate prediction. Capitalism WILL fall eventually. All capitalist systems have fallen which are based upon fiat money. The gold standard cannot be re-implemented because there is no longer enough gold to cover the dollars out there. That, and too many greedy people have concentrated the wealth to individuals instead of spreading it out so that EVERYONE can enjoy some wealth. I despise the super rich with a passion because of their greed, not because of their wealth. We must stop allowing paths to super wealth.

    The greedy know no limits because they are GREEDY. Make limits. When those limits are exceeded, take them at much higher rates. Tax people who own helicopters, planes, race horses, yachts, submarines, etc. Eliminate certain investment products. Who the hell needs a billion dollars?
