I loved it. Best new Trek by a long way, even if it is only one episode in 😂

Now I am not a Trekkie but they have changed the words of the theme song. "Where No Man Has Gone Before" to "Where No One Has Gone Before".

 

This is PC madness. It sort of indicates that prior to Captain James T. Kirk there was no misogyny and in the time of the famous Captain there was. This pre Captain James T. Kirk series they even have Lt Uhura, African American female, which was quite TV ground breaking in the original series, so why change the themes words.

 

Just wrong. Who produced this show to allow just a grievous change?

“The Next Generation” being the operative wording there. On a time line historical basis it is just wrong.

I very much enjoyed the first episode, it feels like old Star Trek so far.

I also quite enjoyed the first episode. I look forward to seeing how it pans out.




It’s not that I’m agoraphobic, it’s just not safe to go out anymore.

 

Keep calm, and carry on posting.

It is actually quite refreshing to watch a trek show that is pretty much bottle episodes, that you can dip and out of....

 

Over demanding "Arc" seasons that demand total attention for weeks and weeks can get really tiresome if you don't feel invested.. ( looking at you Discovery)

 

It feels right for its time....

Same, casting is good so far, though I am not warming to Pike.

I do enjoy Pike, and his arc in Discovery was the best part of the show IMO.  And the fact that he knows his fate and we see glimpses of him in Mengerie is very cool, I'm keen to see what they do with that concept.  His hair is a bit tall now though lol

Oh noes! They updated a line to make it more inclusive! The world is ending!
