I like them. Its different, but good.

Also noticed they have the TOS communicator and the TOS phaser converting into the Discovery one.

I think its fantastic. I like it better than ENT, which was such a stark departure from any previous... the music in this is def its own thing, but respectful and ties to the original. It has a fantastic retro feel to it... but yet its modern. 

 

Thanks for sharing!

 

Just 4 hours until it aires!

It would be awesome if the  football delay didn't impact All Access.

Part of what hurt Enterprise, delays because of sports. Probably a good thing it's going to be on streaming after the first episode.

The production value is fantastic... But I'm still not a fan of lens flares!

There sure are a lot of exec producers on this... 8 total .

I enjoyed the first 2 episodes, much better without commercials.

Based on comments of others, the commercials were pretty bad.

I've watched the 2 episodes now. There are a number of things I am not happy with with this show. I'm not going to type them all out tonight though. One is that we see 24 houses of the Klingon empire, yet none of them look like regular klingons. I don't like the look of these klingons,just don't.

The ship looks like it does so that it appears futuristic and exciting to watch. Like it or not, the tropes have changed. You can't coexist with Guardians of the Galaxy and look significantly less advanced...it's not a good way to lure in wide audiences.

I liked the pilot, I'll keep watching. A little sad that they didn't get a bit more action in the first episode...thought they could at least get Discovery introduced...

They called Burnham going to Discovery a second pilot, which should be next episode.

I get the feeling based on the season preview that it will be a better indication of what the series will be like.
