Re: Star Trek (2017)

Watched both episodes. Totally different tone then all the other shows, this universe in more interesting when you don't get tied to episodic 1 story per episode model. This is much more interesting that doesn't require some multi year show slowly telling a story.

I like

I have a feeling people opinions with be very polarized.

Re: Star Trek (2017)

I really liked it. Have great hopes for the season.

Disclaimer I have watched every episode of TNG, Voyager, Enterprise and DS9.

Didn't mind the Klingons, their clothing was badass. But

Yes, netflix is handling world wide and CBS all access in the US.

Re: Star Trek (2017)

Watched the first ep. Production and visuals were fantastic, movie quality. Overall plot seems like it could be interesting. Dialogue and writing were horrible though.

And the First Officer's actions were atrocious ever since she stepped foot on the Klingon artifact. She could be likeable if she didn't do so many annoying things, but as it stands, I don't care for her as a main character. Didn't like the look of the Klingons either.

Re: Star Trek (2017)

I thought it was much better than expected and I like Burnham's character a lot; the actress is quite good too. Not sure why people hate her already (well, I know why...).

I don't like all the gross insubordination and mutiny, pretty OK with her being a woman and whatnot

Re: Star Trek (2017)

My cousin who is the biggest Trekker I know, is old enough to have watched TOS in its original broadcast run, gave it a 'meh'. That's all I need to know.

Fwiw he mentioned the same things re: Klingons that have been posted here.

Honestly, I think these are the worst kind of people to get an opinion from. Very "serious" Star Trek fans mostly hate any new Star Trek because they compare actual shows/movies to their imaginary perfect idealization of Star Trek. In reality, ALL Star Trek productions have been flawed at some level but we love them anyway. I try to dive into new Star Trek with the attitude of liking it for what it is, instead of picking at them for what they aren't.

That thread is mostly a Star Trek review thread that's currently reviewing eps from S3 of STNG. It just diverged a bit discussing Discovery.

Re: Star Trek (2017)

never seen any of star trek except the new movies and wrath of khan

i dug it, very promising start to the show

i'd recommend the first 2 eps to gauge whether you'd like it....it's pretty much a standalone movie

Re: Star Trek (2017)

It is much closer to Battlestar Galactica then any of the other Star Trek series's. I don't think that is a bad thing.

Liked the first 3/4 of the episode a lot. Didn't like the rest.

Re: Star Trek (2017)

First two episodes were decent. That episode was rubbish. Why does she think she killed 8,000 people?

She was supposed to only observe the Klingon Artefact, instead she went to it, then she killed the Klingon on it starting the war. But likely because her mutiny failed

Liked it a lot, hated the explicit Spock reference. Ugh. I hope that's the only one, but I'm sure it won't be.

Why hate the Spock reference when Sarek is already in the show?

Re: Star Trek (2017)

The real question is will we run into Spock during the show. If this is taking place 10 years before TOS he has to be in Starfleet right now, right?

In "The Cage", which takes place several years before Kirk took command, Spock is serving as Science Office on the Enterprise under Captain Pike and a female First Officer. I'm guessing that is still in this time period's future.

One thing I really don't like is that both captains have called their XOs "number one". THAT'S PICARD'S THING!
