Why did the teddy bear have a knife? (4.06)
It's hard to get the tone from specific scenes chosen and used out of context. People ought to wait until the show premieres before judging it, myself included. I'm hoping for humour like DS9, in that it's not a few quips here and there but scenes like Quark and Rom getting lost in the Jefferies tubes and turning up in Sisko's office, or Quark's monologue about the Federation, or anything Garak says. Real scenes between people. I love the look and tone so I'm cautiously optimistic because if the show's nothing like the trailer, I'll probably hate it. And that's okay because this'll be some new fans first Trek and they'll love it.
I sort of saw this coming when Fuller left. CBS clearly doesn't want to take a chance. They have their research telling them that people love gritty dramas right now, and so that's what they're going to do. They even got their lead from the most popular gritty drama on TV right now in hopes that would draw in more of the people who love that kind of show. What they're going to end up doing is what happened with Enterprise. They're going to completely alienate the fanbase and the foundation of their support trying to appeal to a general audience, and the general audience isn't going to be loyal enough to stay with it. Oh well, here's hoping Seth can make something of his show.
I like the casting for the captain, so if the show fails, don't blame racism. Make another show with good writers and put her in charge of THAT ship. Oh, and have it on a network or Netflix.
The Orville show trailer felt more Trek than the Discovery trailer. Which is really unfortunate as Orville is a pardoy/comedy.
Lol...this is the fourth video of yours i have watched. I'm subscribing now......and now on to your next video!!!
Star Trek Beyond was solid? Nah. It wasn't. It was good as a TOS episode and this new series should've been titled STAR TREK BEYOND! Quite amazing if I might say how re-making an entire series in the TOS timeline could have been. The Beyond movie my biggest gripes most of it was stupidity and slapstick action that doesn't prove much or give any meaning of why they were out there to begin with. The villain and his motives were a bad choice about just as bad as Shinzon from Nemesis. The Enterprise as the set piece was destroyed again because of the need for more thrilling action sequences. While there was good here and there. The final act and conclusion made no sense whatsoever and I hate that it ends with rock 'n roll from the trailer.
About ST: Discovery:
Lens Flares... please... NO MORE! I actually want to watch this series. The lighting of everything should not be so bland and should have better light sources. The aliens are super bad and there's too many just for showing them. As for effects and the stage. Enterprise as a whole series does look much better and holds up to canon better than what we are seeing in Discovery.
Uniforms do not keep in line with the Prime universe and make little sense in the timeline it's set into. The Shenzhou bridge design and much more of what we see is super not canon. That see-through window should not exist. I'm okay with the displays and such, but they could have better designs more fitting of a TOS/Enterprise styling. The metal look does not really fit this era. It's too Star Wars escue!
Finally. Yeah. Star Trek Orville. I sense Discoverys' death is coming!
Yeah, the more attempts I see to revive Star Trek, the more I'm convinced it died with Enterprise, and now it's a rotting stinking corpse with puppet strings.

Brannon Braga and Joe Frakes will apparently join the orvill team!

You had to choice here between me unsubscribing or staying with the channel. You chose the latter, good job, junkball media!

I don't mind things looking different. I don't mind a few Ken's flares or the occasional continuity error. But it HAS to ahve a good script and believable acting. There needs to be character depth that rivals that of Picard or sisko and please don't use phrases such as "Starfleet doesn't fire first". Like fuck it doesn't, but usually you'd expect the captain to hold off on agression in favour of gaining more information first. Anyways, disappointed with the trailer as are most trekkies, I'll give it a chance but at the moment my heart is filled with woe.
4:36 nails it.
First off, it's "visual effects" not "special effects". Second, I don't know what visual effects you're looking at, I think the visual effects on this show look absolutely fantastic! Besides, who are we to criticize a show based on its visual effects? Babylon 5 had terrible visual effects, but nobody complained about them, and that show was popular!
Can anyone tell me what the intro music is called at 0:07?
LOL, so true, The Orville looks 1,000 times better.
I agree with you on the bridge design of this and the JJPrise.
"Freddy Kruger Face" ... lol
Its a total cash grab by CBS and I hate them for it. It is also a total Reboot and not cannon. They should have done it like Axanar but they didn't .....In the end I hate it as much as I hate all the JJ movies. I will not be watching it. Bring on the Orville and anything Axanar puts out.
oh man, that last cut was savage... "Death, I can feel it coming now..." I agree.. lol
1) Pilot (1st episode) will be on CBS network. Then you will have to decide to pay to watch.
2) This series takes place 10 years before Kirk, Spock & Bones crew.
3) It seems like they are taking the J.J. Abram's Star Trek world instead of Gene Roddenberry's Start Trek world.
4) You can count out The Borg (The Trek's best villians).
Why I don't give a 💩 about Discovery:
1) Since its Abrams world, I liked Reboot 1st movie, REALLY HATED "Into The Darkness" (saw it once on DVD that I brought), the Ultimate "Wrath of Khan" super rip-off. Did not & WILL NOT see Beyond. Did not last long in theaters, so I guess it wasn't all that good.
2) Real reason I will not longer watch Abrams Star Trek (or even his Star Wars - never was a fan of Lucas's Star Wars) was most of the new crew (Reboot) made a video that endorsed Hillary Rotten Corpse (Clinton). I can barely watch Sulu on TOS & Stewart/Goldberg on TNG.
3) At least I still have the XXX porn parodies of Trek.
Oh crap, were those guys in the Xindi outfits supposed to be Klingons??
Never mind this crew. I wanna' see Admiral Styles McCoolstache when he was a captain. When are we getting a show about him? Huh? HUH?!
I think that the lack of immediate humor is a smart move, honestly. Television has changed, and the feel-good-buddy-show just isn't something that does well in genre programming these days. We're in a post Game of Thrones/Walking Dead world, and even Enterprise arguably suffered because of its tone after 9/11, when the cynical Battlestar Galactica dominated it in ratings. I suspect that warmth and humor will find its way into Discovery, but not until after the characters have been established and the show finds its footing.
Nice vid! Thank you😊
and I gotta say is it weird that I liked the franklin far better than the A, and that I actually liked the new refit of the JJ, as it atleast did something different with the design? as the franklin atleast looks like the NX we should have got, and the new A, just looks too far in the wrong direction again, as say what you want about the J, but atleast it was something completely different.
and you know what gets me the most, the people who keep saying this is in the prime time line, it aint, not even in the slightest, like the trekyards guys, good guys but way too trusting of terrible TV executives who have given us the Big Bang for the past 8 years.
You know I'm glad to have someone I trust make the same observations that I did lol IE this is gonna be shit, as literally my comment on the trailer was just that along with OHHH! New Junkball media video in suggestions! look at me go! lol
This Discovery trailer is utterly fantastic. They didn't tell us they were giving us a cinema quality movie every week. Impressive.
Yeah, my first impression is rather meh as well. There's just nothing of the Gene Roddenberry's spirit in this one. The ship looks too Klingon, there's too much grim action in the trailer, and what I've seen of the rest, makes it look like they're trying to do a J.J. Abrams version of Enterprise. With all that and the fact that you have to purchase access to even watch the show. ....I agree with you, I don't see this lasting long at all.
"star trek beyond". "it was better than it shouldve been." very true but still not saying much. i get the distinct impression that the entire premise was so someone could deliver the line "this is where the frontier pushes back....."
uuuuuuuugggghhhhhh. great. just what the franchise needed. more lens flair. let me guess, the lens flair is a prelude to a time travel story. great. brilliant. couldnt be better.
why the bridge is on the bottom of the saucer. because that leaves no where to go but up......
"i sense it coming now." yeppers
Trek is dead. We don't need more JarJar Abrams garbage!! Plus we have to PAY to see it? Why not put it on Netflix for everyone or stream free like SUPERGIRL or THE FLASH does on cwtv.com?? plus focus on ONE character?? Not the entire cast like TOS & TNG & DS9 & VOY & (even the poorly done & inconsistent) ENT!!??? JarJar Abrams killed Star Trek & Star Wars. And that ship.... my dogs leave better shapes in the front yard!!!! Hey, lets be dumb & lazy & use rejected ship designs from TOS!!!! Plus, Star Trek Discovery = STD!! Are they saying new Trek is a disease?? roflmbo
Plus THIS is PRIME universe?? Looks EXACTLY like JJ "Kelvin" universe to me!!! The "lense flare" distracts from the action & even helps obscure it at times!! :P~~~~~~ (blowing raspberries)
Mysterious Middle East
The trailer was fine. Star Trek fans are hating on this for no good reason and are the reason why the franchise originally got put on ice for 5 years, because they couldn't get behind Enterprise (which is a good show and holds up pretty well today), and why we were given that mediocre reboot set in the JJ Verse.
Now we are getting what looks like a Prime Timeline show. But regardless where its set, it looks consistent with both Enterprise and the JJ Verse, and Enterprise already showed how the two eras can be merged (60s and 00s) and got away with it.
The only issue I have with Discovery is that its not set Post Nemesis, and those weird looking Klingons, who should be looking like humans.
The Orville makes this show look like dogshit
this trailer is so bad, star wars the last jedi will be a better continuation of the franchise!!!
There are two very bad things about Discovery: 1) Other than the premier it will be available only online. 2) It ripped off Axanar which was in development several years prior to the very first announcement of Discovery.
ö. . ,
Makes sense. They already had a "before Kirk" show that didn't go well. The next logic step is of course: "You get an other before Kirk show you faks, until you like it!!! Yeah, stupid audience, take this! We won't stop!"
is it just me or does it seem like they are intentionally trying to kill star trek?
Yup, it looks pretty bad. Even DS9 ( The best and darkest Trek made so far imho ) had some great goofy moments and characters.
The bridge reminded me of the Ent-E bridge with the slanted console supports and colour scheme.
The new look of Klingons and everything is awesome. The lack of Mythic or Romantic mode in favor of low mimetic or Ironic is not awesome.
lolol funny. love this review
this looks so bad, it sounds so bad, it smells so bad, it is going to get panned so hard. they fucked up literally everything. this looks like some generic sci-fi movie on sci-fi channel. the cgi looks like hot trash on a summer day. the acting and dialogue ranges from pointless to confusingly stupid. i hate this already and im so fucking pissed they are raping my 2nd favorite sci-fi IP.
do I hear the music from the band space? the band that gave you magic fly?
Why isn't the music used credited? I can't find either of the two I can distinguish from each other, they sound great and I want to listen to them on their own, but I can't
If "The Orville" and "Discovery" make a Baby, thats Star Trek as it was and should be.
Sadly, I have zero interest in jumping through the CBS All Access hoop to watch this. I'd like to support the show and help keep it on the air, but if you're going to restrict the options for watching it, don't be surprised when it gets pirated, or not watched at all.
This is one STD that will not be contagious....
I have to agree 100% with your assessment. Overall I'm not clamoring for it. It doesn't look like much fun.
As far as being relatable to Star Trek... set 10 years before TOS is still in TOS universe, and this looks and feels nothing like it.
I'd still give it a chance if it looked thoughtful and fun, but it's nowhere close.
I look more forward to giving Orville a shot than this.
