Now I know why they went after Axanar like that. Both are about war with Klingons.

Has CBS unveiled a new Star Trek/Starfleet mission statement a la Kirk's original "Space ... the Final Frontier...?"



"As we stand at the edge of an unknown universe, we know our greatest challenges lie before us, that our future is not bound by fear and that our mission is not to conquer, but to discover. That is our destiny, a destiny written written in the stars. So, we boldly go where we have never gone before."

Just watched Sonequa on Colbert and, gotta say, she was hilarious.

An embargo is not a good sign. All of the Trek series from TNG-onwards were slow starters though, so there's hope. The mindset in these days of the Golden Age of TV, especially for shows with shorter seasons, is that they need to be awesome from the get-go.

They started with the Klingon war to generate interest. If that doesn't do it, then nothing will. They're not going to continue this Klingon arc for next season. Regardless of how well it does Season 2 is a go, mainly because they already made a profit for a season 1.

I saw the trailer and I have to say my initial gut feeling is one of disappointment:

1- I could be completely wrong here as I'm just basing this observation on the video trailer and some limited info I have of the series but looks like this series is the LEGO Friends equivalant of the Star Trek franchise... Meaning it's incorporating a more active female cast in order to draw in female viewers. Whether or not this will work, who knows, but I'm a bit disappointed that there won't be an iconic captain like Kirk, Picard (I grew in to ST while TNG was airing) or even Sisko in this series. I like Michelle Yeoh even as she gracefully ages but man, I could NEVER associate her with ST. Don't know much about the black girl who seems to be the lead so can't really comment on her.

2- From the little I saw it appears the series is heavily CGI and I again have a baaaaad feeling about this. The previous series like TNG or even DS9 really tried hard to use interesting story lines (for the most part) to compensate for the static sets and lack of amazing visuals. I feel it really worked. Maybe the times have changed and now CGI is much cheaper than before so the producers/director have decided to incorporate the stunning visuals but I couldn't shake the feeling I was watching another king of lens flare, JJ Abrams, movie trailer (It's not a complement btw!).

Maybe I'm totally wrong, and I hope I am. I even watched Enterprise (Eventually finished it) even though it truly sucked on so many levels with shallow characters and predictable stories because I like the franchise so here is to hoping this series is a good one...

Yup, the pilot could make or break the show, I plan to watch the 1st 3 episodes to see how characters evolve a bit before deciding if if it's worth continuing.
