Star Trek: Discovery Trailer

I'll just get this out of the way first: I'm not a Star Trek person. I'm so completely not a Star Trek person that I'm not sure if I should put those two words in italics (TV series titles get italics) or not (is it more of a conceptual thing having to do with who owns the property, than the actual title of the show, like Marvel's Agents of SHIELD?).

But I'm friends with enough Star Trek people that A) I understand jokes about Tribbles, and B) I suspect that many of them are excited about a new Star Trek show. Therefore, I give to you, my Star Trek friends: the trailer for Star Trek: Discovery. Live long and prosper.

Or, since it's just a trailer with no premiere date: watch short and enjoy.

I want to be excited for this, I really do, but my only reaction to this trailer was a mild shrug. And do they really have to do Klingons again?

^^^^Says the man that has Vader as his pic...another Star Wars with Vader???

Of course there will be Klingons, this is 10 yrs before Kirk...Romulans were just barely known at that time.

The CGI Effects look amazing.

One race of many is not equal the de facto main character of a series.

I am hesitantly excited about this. Looks great! ...and I really really hope it will be a success. A bit disappointed though that they yet AGAIN decided to place this in a time before the first Star Trek. I want my Borg drones!! ...but I guess that can't happen as they kinda wrote themselves into a corner with the finale of Voyager. I would have preferred if it had been a spin-off from the rebooted movies though...

Top K9, Vader may be my icon, but that doesn't mean I'm all for the character being used constantly, same with the Klingons. They have been a major presences in all five series and the majority of the movies. The whole point of Star Trek is to seek out new life and new civilizations. Why focus the new show on a civilization we've already met and know everything about? There is isn't much else this show can tell us about the Klingons that we don't already know. I think it would've been more interesting to introduce a new race or maybe use an old one that hasn't been as well developed, like the Tholians or Gorns.

It looks like thy have thrown continuity out of the window if this is meant to be in prime continuity. Yes I also agree that the klingons much as I have loved them really should have been left there is nothing left to do with them as a culture the kuvah'magh stuff was interesting in the novels but that's really it.
