THE FIRST TRAILER IS HERE!!!

 

 

They've also expanded it from 13 to 15 episodes for the first season. The FX look great. I hope the writing is great as well.

Sonequa looks great. Love Michelle Yeoh.

 

Not sold on some of the aesthetic - some elements look faker than others - but if it's still Fuller's I'm on board.

I hope the show isn't a boring talkfest and the actors can sell their roles to me.   Remember when the James Bond franchise tried to sell Denise Richards as a weapons expert.

Basically I'm not looking at it as Star Trek I'm looking at it as a spin-off or sequel, not a prequel. If I do it's just a mess. From the costumes, to the conflict change, new aliens, etc. it just doesn't fit with TOS. It does look good though which is why I'm going to give it a shot. I just wish they'd admitted it's a prequel to the movies or just made it a sequel.

I don't think it's any different than any other series.

 

As for conflict they're just being honest about the same thing the franchise has always done. Roddenberry talked a big game but most of his stories involved interpersonal conflict and often violence. Same with most of the best of Trek.
