This is the first Trek show that I will watch while it's airing. Please be good. At least be better than Voyager.

Brief message from ivysaur, a poster who used to post in TV-GAF a lot:

I'm only forwarding this message because I was on Discovery from about the beginning to close to the end of the season, and it's been a huge process and a significant part of my life and wanted to talk briefly about it in the most non-spoilery way possible.

I'm so happy you guys (and, frankly, everyone) can finally see the show. I'm personally really proud of it and think the final product is really fantastic (again, understanding all the biases that come with creating something like this). It's rare to work on something that you actually believe in creatively, and I've been pretty lucky in that regard throughout the past few years and now, but Disco is something super special and I really hope you guys enjoy what we created.

Also the showrunners fucking rule and I think you guys are going to be really surprised by Aaron and Gretchen. I love them (and the entire team) so much and I'm in awe of everyone's talents. Peace out, Qapla', Live Long and Prosper, etc.

For Canadians, the CraveTV availability is actually the day following the Sunday broadcast, unfortunately. It's still day/date with the States on Space.

I'm not sure if Netflix will always be a day behind too.

I'm interested, but no way I'm paying for another subscription service just for this. I'll either catch it on Netflix, or binge it during a free month, or just keep watching The Orville.

Got a message back from the CBS All-Access. They said their platform supports 1080p. It looked terrible on my computer (which can stream 8K from Youtube) but I will try this on my PS4: Pro when I'm not at work and will let you know if it works better or not.

CBS All-Access is required for USA viewing, Netflix for the rest of the world.

Also some new details on the Star Trek after show: http://deadline.com/2017/09/star-tre...st-1202175354/

Nothing earth shattering. It's called 'After Trek' and will be hosted by Matt Mira.

Don't even suggest it. He's great, so I really hope not.

Based on previous trailers though, I'm guessing that's exactly what happens with Michelle Yeoh (which I'm more okay with).

It's been a long road
Getting from there to here
It's been a long time
But my time is finally near
And I can feel the change in the wind right now
Nothing's in my way
And they're not gonna hold me down no more
No, they're not gonna hold me down

'Cause I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got faith to believe
I can do anything
I've got strength of the soul
And no one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star
I've got faith
I've got faith, faith of the heart

It's been a long night
Trying to find my way
Been through the darkness
Now I finally have my day
And I will see my dream come alive at last
I will touch the sky
And they're not gonna hold me down no more
No, they're not gonna change my mind

'Cause I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got faith to believe
I can do anything
I've got strength of the soul
And no one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star
I've got faith, faith of the heart

I've known the wind so cold, I've seen the darkest days
But now the winds I feel, are only winds of change
I've been through the fire and I've been through the rain
But I'll be fine

'Cause I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got faith to believe
I can do anything
I've got strength of the soul
And no one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star

'Cause I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got strength of the soul
No one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star
I've got faith
I've got faith, faith of the heart
It's been a long road

UPDATE: Tried CBS All-Access on my PS4 and it looks like proper 1080p. Not sure what the issue was with the web browser streaming but the actual app works pretty well.

Wanted to let you guys know. I was wrong about the video quality. There is a one werk free trial if anyone wants to try it for episode 2 of the show this Sunday.

How the hell has Doug Jones never been on Star Trek before, even as a guest star?

I hope this is good. I like what I've seen, except for the new Klingon looks. Like the cast, and the idea of two ships.

I still want a picture of him on the bridge, in costume, and in the Malfoy Wig

I have no idea really, just guessing, cause you know, it's James Frain, I can't remember the last time he played anything but a bad guy.

He is playing Sarek, the father of Spock.

Maybe he will have an evil twin.

The Vulcans were kind of jerks in Enterprise, hopefully they're over that by now.

Ahh, cool. So not a bad guy then, but still might be sort of antagonistic, considering the era it's set.

I find it really strange that they went for the TVMA US rating level. Feel like that might work for other shows but just doesn't suit trek. Enterprise tried to be a bit more edgy and push the boundaries a bit more at times, but it was awful and out of place every time they tried it. Discovery might just be going for a different, darker tone, but I feel like we already have plenty of that.

Oh well, will just have to wait and see how it turns out.
