Is anyone watching the new series yet?

I'm holding off until I finish my run of Voyager.

Any thoughts so far?

I am still watching STD, its ridiculous! The more I watch the more I laugh. Overdramatized, ridiculous, twist in every episode. The story is insane! I hate most of the characters, the only one I like is the red hair ensign Tilly. Everybody is suffering and crying all the time, every major character has its own agenda, its basically like Game Of Thrones with bad writing, acting, and characters.

Do not watch it if you can only do it for money, doesn't worth a penny, but I do recommend Star Trek fans to watch it, just to experience the insanity.

My favourite episode without spoilers is when dark matter has borderline magical attributes...

If you want something that is more similar to classic Star Trek, watch The Orville. Its somewhat scuffed, but "it's heart is at the right place".

Yeah, I’m not exactly captivated with the new season.  

I’m finding it difficult to like any of the characters too and I can’t tell where the story is going. 

You think after all this time with no ST show they’d manage to come up with something decent. 

Here’s hoping for Picard.

I've watched the first two seasons. After the first I wasn't a big fan, but... it's Star Trek, so I figured I'd watch the second as well. Believe it or not, it got even worse in the second season.

There is actually quite a lot of potential in the premise, but it's executed so terribly bad. It's riddled with continuity errors. In some episodes by the end of the episode they've contradicted everything the episode was build on. Sarek is a joke, he's not a Vulcan at all, more like a human with emotional expression problems and highly illogical. The story as told rarely makes any sense whatsoever. The characters make the stupidest decisions/mistakes you can imagine. They often spend tens of minutes on highly cringe-worthy emotional overacting while the rest of the episode lacks depth and credibility. It's really like they're making it up as they go along without taking into account what has already happened or how they're going to continue on from what they came up with this week. They even have an episode that continues on a story from a previous episode, but the thing it builds on never actually happened and was probably cut from the final edit or something (as in: "previously on Star Trek Discovery": and then they show some scene they've never aired before and later in the episode they build on that...). The people writing the series don't have any clue whatsoever about science or how to make something that's a bit beyond science sound credible/plausible/acceptable. They make use of the "deus-ex-machina" technique in virtually every single episode to salvage whatever has gone horribly wrong this time and so on and so on... It's quite bad.

I really don't have any good words for this show. I'm with dBLOOD on this one, watch it, but don't expect too much. In fact if you manage to watch it all, you probably deserve a fan award. ^_^

All of the above being said, I also have to admit I'm not a big fan of the 'new incarnation' of Star Trek in general either, the new movies I mean. As stand alone movies they are quite decent, but they stand completely apart from everything I held dear in the Star Trek series from before 2008. It all feels very Marvel/DC-ey, very far removed from the original Star Trek feel. Of course, everything is about the money these days, so these movies are probably not written for original fans, but more for the general public. Star Trek had been having image problems for years and with this re-imagining they've straightened that out. Star Trek is cool again with a larger group of people, but unfortunately that is to the detriment of the original qualities in the series.

As another side note: I wouldn't have too high hopes for the other new upcoming series either, as they are ordered and created by the same studio and same group of people.

I hadn't heard of this series, but after reading about it there, I decided to look into it. Oh man that is such a Star Trek TNG rip-off. But boy, is it hilarious. I've been watching it for the past week. It's of a way less serious tone than most Star Trek and there are certainly issues with a lot of the more serious stuff that's in it, but it is clearly aiming more at the laughing crowd than at the serious crowd, so that can be forgiven. I've been lol-ing quite a bit while watching that. A starship captain whose first officer is his ex-wife... A 2nd officer with a porn addiction... Yeh, ... LOL

Notwithstanding the fact it's from FOX, I would most certainly recommend watching this series, it's quite fun and entertaining.

Have you heard about the STD Lawsuit?

There's barely anything about in the media.

Anas Abdin. Creator of the point and click adventure game TARDIGRADES. Is suing CBS for stealing his idea and turning it into ST: Discovery.

Here's the back story. It's been going on since last year...

 

See the rest of the Nerdotic vids for the continuing story. The CBS lawyers are basically stalling, hoping he gives up - or is financially ruined by the cases.

Oh boy, they are so busted. 😄

I hope they get fined for millions and the dude gets many many millions in compensation.
