Travis (travishiltz) | 20 comments So, what do think about the rumor there will be a new Trek series in 2017?

What are people hoping for?
What kind of ship and what kind of Captain would people like to see?

Something old school or have them try something new?

Travis (travishiltz) | 20 comments Anybody checked out Discovery?

I'm hearing mixed reviews and am unsure if I'll be able to check it out.

Steve359 | 2 comments It's an interesting scifi program but despite it's use of all the names, and "Trek" buzzwords, I don't think it's really Trek. It's very dark. The main character is a mutineer and the ship's captain is struggling with some deep seated emotional issue. Trek has always had a positive view of the future. That's not the message that I'm getting from this show.

Travis (travishiltz) | 20 comments Yeah, even the positive reviews tell you they aren't sure where this show fits into any Trek continuity.

They seemed to have gone from 'it's a prequel' to 'If you ignore all other Trek, it's really good.'

I'm interested in trying it, but am getting mixed messages.

Steve359 | 2 comments It's worth watching, just don't expect it to fit in the Trek Universe. It's like, the Expanse or Dark Matter. Fairly good scifi.
