Well than, after all those months and a long wait, the first trailer REAL for Star Trek Discovery has arrived. I had to watch it a few times to get everything out from it, but so far I have a "I don't know about this" feeling. it's a tiny bit interesting as I had a similar feeling about the first Kelvin movie too. A new movie about a classic Star Trek. Well, this trailer looks cool. The visuals are much better than the the comic con trailer back than, athough it feels more like a Battlestar Galactica for me at this point. It's a totally fresh show and a totally different aspect of Star Trek.
As they stated initially, the first officer will have an issue with the central command that had a little hint in the trailer and yes, Michael will be the centre point of this adventure. The make up is amazing in this trailer, the uniforms are more like a crossover between the Enterprise and the Kelvin universe. The ship looked amazing, although visually I wasn't really excited about that as Axanar, or other fan projects had similar cgi ships.
Kelvin, Kelvin... Is That You?
The Klingons finally revealed in their "glory" and they look acceptable... for a Kelvin movie. I think the problem is with them, as they supposed to be in the prime timeline and they look like they came from the Kelvin universe... it just doesn't fit. I know I might sounds like a bit of a downer now, but somehow I didn't get the "hype" out of this trailer. It looks serious, different and a tiny bit dark... maybe I just have to wait till the dust will settle around my feelings about this and see how will feel about it.
At this point I'm not really excited. Frankly I'm much hyped about The Orville than Discovery. That has a really good feel, unlike Discovery that has nothing to do with the Prime Timeline that the show suppossed to be. I will release a youtube review about this trailer when I will discuss the details a bit more in depth.... maybe I'll have a much more positive feeling about it after.
