Nice OP btw!
I am so excited for this. We have a new Star Trek series in two days.
Awesome job, OP.
YMMV. Check your provider.
Wait, do you have to buy in to CBS All Access even with a cable subscription?
The first episode will air on CBS. The first and next five can be watched for the first month on CBS All Access, which you can get a free month for.
The last episodes you'll have to pay up for. At some point, they need to take your monies.
Sadly it's unlikely the best Trek enemies will appear in this properly. :(
It's kind of aggravating, but I also understand why they did it - it gives the viewers who aren't too familiar with the lore something to anchor into since most people have heard of Spock before, and it gives the Trekkies some sort of idea where in the timeline it is.
probably been discussed before, but it bothers me greatly that they have to shoe horn the Sonequa in as Spocks half sister.
Its almost as egregious as the prequels where of course Yoda fights alongside Chewie on Kashyyk.
All the buzz sounds really positive about this, not sure why anyone still thinks it'll be bad at this point. All the trailers have look great to me.
I can't wait. Love the Trek I've watched - grew up watching DS9 and Voyager along with the TNG films onwards. Still haven't seen TOS/films and about half of TNG.
I've got faith. Of the heart
Also stop screwing with the Klingons #NotMyKlingons. They should have just called them something else.
I mean I don't know how they're "preying on their fanbase". It's a CBS show, it's on their service. CBS isn't available in our regions, so Netflix paid a mountain of money for those. I get that you don't like the service but I don't see what's unfair about it. They made a product and try to sell it through their service. That doesn't seem quite like an act of evil to me.
I'm interested in the show as a huge Star Trek fan. But I am not giving CBS a dime for All Access, there are too many streaming services as it is. The agreement to have this show on Netflix in other countries but not here is why I think it will fail. Had it been on one of the larger streaming services it might have had a chance. But preying on your fandom to save your fledgling service is just pathetic.
They haven't made this show and this way of broadcasting it to fuck over Star Trek fans. I do understand how it may not be your service of choice, but well now.
There are other shows on CBS All Access (like the absolutely fucking phenomenal The Good Fight) plus more coming. Plus pretty much the entire CBS library.
asking me to subscribe to a new streaming service for one show is .. a little crazy. not happening.
The entire point is to use Trek to help launch the service. Not saying it's worth it to you, but it's much more than just Discovery.
Hype levels... slowly rising....
