I was very pleased with the reboot. I couldn't care less whether Spock shouldn't be with Uhura, or however else it diverges from the original series. I am never going to watch all of the old Star Trek. I have no interest in a movie that builds on four tv-shows and a number of other movies, most of which are terrible. As with Star Wars, I am happy that they decided to go at it with a relative blank slate, while still adding nods to the original.

Mind you. I would much rather have preferred they'd do something new, rather than another IP reboot, but when they decided to do that I am happy to have enjoyed the result.



Im with Morgy on this one.
The original seried was low rent sci fi, the later ones had a few interesting episodes and the films were mostly dross. The reboot trilogy brought star trek to the wider audience and was a much more palatable experience than the awkward jilting dialogue that shatber delivered.

Pretty much vehemently disagree with everything you just said, Mac.

I'm pretty firmly in the "Who cares?" camp about the new show.

"Prime" timeline = yay
Prequel = suck
Streaming service = f@$% you

Unless you're basically anywhere in the world that's not America, in which case it's on Netflix.

In Canada it will be on Space channel, but yeah we don't have to pay extra for it either.

Announced yesterday: delayed from Jan 2017 to Sept 2017.

Not surprised considering how little hype to date.

I think it's May 2017 not September...but still not surprising since they've not shot a frame yet (I should know as they are shooting it in my city).

Yep, May, not Sept.

I won't be surprised if that changes again tho. It looks like they are flailing with this.

I agree. I think they just pushed to get the info out and Fuller is likely (and smartly) taking his time to do it right.

CBS went a bit weird on this one. Although it's a digital series, they treated it like an ordinary mid-season replacement on their main channel: start filming in September, air in January. I gather that they've been told for months that that is completely unnecessary. The producers also want to film all, or almost all, of the season before it starts transmitting so they can get some more post-production time as well.

CBS finally realised they were being idiotic and agreed to delay it by four months and not rush their production staff into an early grave trying to get it all ready. You can tell CBS aren't used to thinking like this.

Fuller also hasn't completely finished his work on AMERICAN GODS, which I believe is now in post-production. I wouldn't be surprised if he wanted to 100% put the production to bed on Season 1 before decamping full-time to DISCOVERY (and they still need to work out what they're going to do about AG Season 2 as well).

Not surprised. Borg Union rates are budgetkillers.

Considering the 50th anniversary passed and the non-extent of Trek Discovery coverage, I'd say the whole institution wet the bed, then tried to hide it, pushed it out the window, got stuck, lit the bed on fire and ended up burning the house down around it what were we talking about?
