    So the rumours were right.

    "I worked in a factory owned by Germans, at coal pits owned by Frenchmen, and at a chemical plant owned by Belgians. There I discovered something about capitalists. They are all alike, whatever the nationality. All they wanted from me was the most work for the least money that kept me alive. So I became a Communist." - Ники́та Серге́евич Хрущёв

    Between Enterprise and TOS. TOS is by far my favorite series, TNG at #2, but the rest are really take it or leave it, IMO. So hopefully it'll more TOS and less Voyager/DS9/etc

    The buzz around this is very very promising. Creative Trek nerds seem to be in control from top to bottom.
    Can't wait till tomorrow.

    Also amped. But creative Trek nerds is not always a good thing. Simon Pegg had considerable sway over Star Trek Beyond, which wasn't really anything stellar.

    I thought it was great. But damn, for a Star Trek series it sure started off dark.

    Yeh, not bad...

    Although two things grated with me.
    1) The new Klingons t-a-l-k-i-n-g s-o s-l-o-w-l-y...
    2) So the Klingon ship lights up like a star and people light years away can see it after minutes instead of years? Has the speed of light changed over the next couple of centuries?

    But better than Voyager's first episode(s) if I recall, and that turned out very well! So fingers crossed!

    Thought the 3rd episode felt rather flat and clunky...
