Airdate and mid-season break
Captain on the Bridge
Beam Me Up or Shoot Me Down?
I have to admit I was raising my "Spock-brows" on the transporter picture. That was something I was like... what the heck is this? Seriously the new transporter room looks kinda distant that we saw before in Star Trek. Those spinning circles behind them, that equipped with an emitter in the middle looks a tiny bit strange to me. Seems like that transporter work in a vertical way... so you might end up being hit by the trasporter beam and you will just simply disintegrate. Kind of scary... although we didn't see that in action just yet. I still have to remind myself about the Shenzhou as she's an old ship compare to Discovery, so technology can be different than what we used to. Although one thing is sure, they used "classic" transporter pads in Enterprise... and at this moment that's the only stable point between the Prime Timeline, the Kelvin Timeline and now also Discovery. Looking forward to see more of the sets prior he series.
Something sill missing.
Well, the end of my little brainstorming session I came to one conclusion from all these bits that we've got from Discovery: it's just different. Apart from the Star Trek com badge and the look of the phasers it still doesn't feel like Star Trek to me. It's been interesting how the previous series built up and they tried to follow each other, but with Discovery I'm getting a sort of "let's make this ours" feeling. It seems like CBS really just want to make a ton of money out the franchise in the most appealing way to everyone. I've read a lot of comments on my channel regarding to Discovery and a lot said the same thing at the end as "Dicovery made by people who wants money!" With all due respect on the cast and the crew that I believe they did their job 110% to make the show great. I just have the feeling CBS see the franschise through the eyes of profit, not a story to tell. Don't get me wrong, I'm not writing the series off just yet... I'm really far from that. As I always said I'll give the show a chance, but I have my Spock-brow raised at the moment.
What do you think about Discovery so far? Are you looking forward to it? Do you think it will be great or it will fall? Let me know in the comment section below.
Keeping it simple...
