Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

What you're saying makes me quite optimistic, Stephen. I hope it's going to be great. We all need a good Star Trek series in our lives, let's be honest.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

I just hope the Picard series will be as good as I'm hoping.

But yes they appear to be getting Discovery on the right path.

The opening credits and theme are still crap.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

There are elements of the theme and credits I do like but it's mainly the sequence that isn't right as it's so far removed from every other Trek show.

The same thing was said about Enterprise.

This is true, although I do like the Enterprise theme and credits are still similar to others in terms of exploration and the space theme. Disco just went a step too far with the modern loo for the sequence.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

This is why I like the Netflix skip intro option. Does anyone know if the Picard and Series two of Star Treck Discovery will be shown on Netflix over here?

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

Discovery season 2 starts weekly on the 18th January.

Not sure about the Picard series.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

yeah I really like it. I thought the special effects and space scenes were superb and I just wish this kind of standard was around for TNG because everything looks so real. I really like Captain Pike as well, is more of a laid back Captain Archer style Captain.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

funny you should say that because I thought last week's ep was weak story wise and I missed the Klingon story arc from season 1. This week's looks even worse and I need them to sink their teeth into something.

In terms of my realism factor I would like to see more of the universe. Having this side story with Spock is a perfect opportunity for them to visit a Starbase, resupply, see the crew do some R&R etc and make the universe more believable.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

I've been loving the second season so far. Some big changes have started to take place and bring it more in line with TOS and other Trek series.

IE Ep 2 - New Eden felt like a very ToS story. Typical landing party trek ep.

Episode 4 - They were on their way to Spock and got trapped by an alien entity, as well as the spore MaySpore sub plot made it feel like a TNG episode.

They are also making attempts to close down the spore network and remove the Spore Drive as well as taking out the Holo comm system from Enterprise which will go back to ToS again.

I feel that the change to the Klingons has also been good, gicing them hair back and uniting the houses, creating proper classic Klingon ships(D7)

New Show runneres have clearly made huge changes to get back on track with fans,
