    The voiceover will play along with this song while skipping stones on a holodeck beach.

    The lazy writing for Voyager ruined the ST universe. Every problem found new technology to fix everything. Eventually you end up with everything being beatable.

    Voyager Season 1 enemies they barely survived would be annihilated by season 7 Voyager. Meanwhile Enterprise D Season 1 was indistinguishable from the final season. I blame Braga and Berhman.

    Abrams gave a visual style to trek which is the opposite of Roddenberry's vision. Gene wanted a nautical feel. Like being in the Navy. Abrams makes it feel like you're in an Apple store under a terrorist attack.

    What I really wonder, is how much of what we see in the trailer was Fuller. I bet we'll never know. He surely wouldn't admit to it now.

    This dives into the many problems of this series including the real reason the Klingons look so different. Oh and the main character is somehow Spock's adopted sister that's never been mentioned before.

    That explains why he's down with Uhura.

    But seriously, this means in S2 they will need to cast Spock.

    You guys missed something. The video makes it seem that some catastrophic event throws the Discovery into an alternate universe or some shit and the main universe no longer remembers them or some shit. And if the series fails like everyone thinks it will, it might be dropped or revamped to be an anthology show like American Horror Story

    The Time War in Enterprise was to say to the hardcore fans, that there will be inconsistencies. I guess they are doing something similar in Discovery.

    It looks pretty cut and dry. This looks like the prelude to Axanar, the first Klingon Federation war. The Shenzhou is detroyed and it looks like everyone abandoned ship. Martin-Green survives in the wreckage, maybe the only crew member to. The ships don't look anything like previous Klingon ships. They look like Wraith Hive ships.

    They have to be different due to licensing issues.

    I was thrilled seeing this, until I realized the Webpage was on react365.com. Site where you can post your own fake news.


    Star Trek Discovery Cancelled after filming just two episodes

    Here is the news everybody has been dreading. CBS has decided to pull the plug on Discovery completely after backlash from so-called 'fans' about putting the show on their paid streaming network. The show production has been halted while CBS considers where to now go with the franchise and is considering selling it's remaining IP.

    Yeah at this stage I think it's all been filmed. So I'd likely have disregarded that one.

    Still, a girl can dream....
