Theres a rumour going around that the Klingons here are from a off shoot of the klingon race, that have been in cryogenic suspension for some reason or another, hence how they have not evolved as the current crop of angry dudes.

There had better be decent storylines and acting to make this work.
"Ten years before Kirk.....before Spock....before The Enterprise"....

That's TOS.

This series could be expected to have more advanced-looking bits and bobs though. I think CBS gave them carte blanche to load the reboot tubes. What really concerns me is Bryan Fuller's statement recently where he made it clear that he had zero further involvement, hadn't left willingly, and had been forced to hand over all creative materials before being made to walk.

So who's writing it? Who's deciding on the story arc, assuming they're still doing that?

Bring back Patrick Stewart and give him the Enterprise G and I'll watch the fuck out of anything you want to throw at me.

This too;

Basically, Fuller wanted the show done right. CBS wants the show done right......now...

yeah , not fussed after reading that, I had expected something different but I've read that same thing elsewhere. The american showrunner thing can be more of a red herring at times, surely if he cared THAT much ,he wouldn't have been doing another series. So not fussed he's left , until I've actually had a chance to see a few episodes.

Fulm - fair enough and I agree about Sir Pats. The only thing that caught me cold in the trailer was the portrayal of Sarek , but thats mainly because I'm not buying Frain's accent yet.

Sir Patrick is far too old to play a Starfleet Officer. I love him to bits, but he's become almost as dotty as Picard, the retired Vineyard owner from the final TNG episode; "All good things". Or, indeed, his aged self from "The Inner light", a superb episode.

As an alternative to all this retro-rebooting, I would suggest doing exactly what Paramount/CBS did for TNG: shunt the timeline forward a century or so, really let the most progressive tech-heads loose on the designs, etc., etc. Oh, and FFS, get a decent composer in for the soundtrack for a change.

Keep Jason Isaacs as Captain though.

I didn't quite get it from that poster above in Eja's post but you can see see in this one

http://scifanatic.wpengine.netdna-cd...17-poster2.jpg how pronounced the saucer gap is. This must one of the singularly worst looking Trek ships.

edit - looks like a f'in fidget spinner. Horrific.

Not sure that the gap is the problem - looks to me like the saucer is just too small for the rear nacelles

Maybe they can jettison the 'ring' and try to pass themselves off as klingon?

Possibly. If you took that off it looks like a shitty version of a klingon ship. I also wouldn't be surprised if the ring section detaches TNG Saucer style. The way the struts look close in are more like clamps than a fixed bit of superstructure.

Meh.

I'll probably watch it, but I'm not exactly wanking myself into a frenzy over it.

I'll watch but with low expectations. Some of of the effects I like the look of , some I don't. Not a fan of the new klingons as yet , but still no context so we'll see. And the pew pew pew lasers in the ship combat looked a bit pants.
