Star Trek to return to the small screen.

Also ‘The Cage’ establishes that the helmsman under Pike was a Lt. Jose Tyler and the CMO was a Dr Phil Boyce, who was then followed by a Dr Mark Piper for the first few episodes of The Original Series before McCoy becomes the doctor.

Dr M’Benga was the deputy CMO under McCoy - he’s present in a few episodes where McCoy is incapacitated and has to act as the doctor.

Why would he be the ships doctor under Pike only to return three doctors later and be the deputy?

Dude at this point if you continue watching you are just going to have to accept that continuity has gone completely out the window and that these are Star Trek "inspired" television shows.

You pretty much know that a multiverse is coming too.

Oh wait, I forgot there pretty much already is one.

Rebooted on the CW?

Looking forward to Londo and G’kar to be gender flipped and de-aged and be the full of angsty sexual tension.

Yeah, well that's the risk I suppose. The fact that JMS is writing it gives me hope however. If they do gender flip some roles I hope it's more like Battlestar Galactica 2004 and not Ghostbusters 2016.

I'm betting Garibaldi and Franklin get the gender flip. Cameo appearance by Peter Jurasik.

I was literally logging in to post this and to say the exact same thing when you posted it.

This looks absolutely dire. The entire universe being threatened by a macguffin again, Burnham is whisper-crying, we're straight up told how brave she is in case we missed it the first fifty times they've said it, f**king Gray and Adira staring into each others eyes longingly, Tig Notaro quipping while manning an engineering console, Starfleet once again sending it's most out-dated ship to tackle the galaxy-threatening anomoly, etc. etc. etc.

How do the writers of this show not get it - if every threat is an apocalyptic one, then none of them are. Guess what geniuses, your audience knows you aren't going to blow everything up and kill everyone so there are literally zero stakes when you do this every f**king season. It's maddening.

I think I'll watch the first episode and see how it goes, but it occurred to me today that if this wasn't 'Star Trek' and was just a generic sci-fi show, I'd have given up on it by now. It's just really not very good and the writers seem hell bent on doubling down on all the shit it makes it bad with each passing season.

Who needs story when you've got cool VFX right.
Could the current writers watch classic episodes like 'Inner light' or The Storyteller from DS9 I think it was. Just great stories. I can give plenty more examples given time. Can't think of the name but the original series ep that Harlan Ellison wrote. They should watch some of that.

Not saying they all need to be like that, they can still have their barn burners like the Borg eps and Yesterdays Enterprise. They also told great stories as well though, so that was cool.

"Today we seek to understand a threat like none our galaxy has faced before..."

Oh, you mean like the last two seasons of Discovery and the first season of Picard.

Also, is this a CW show now? I couldn't help but notice that almost every person in this trailer is female.

Just watched the Season 2 finale of Lower Decks.

It’s comfortably the best Trek show running at the moment. It’s amazing how good it is when it has no right to be.
