...and seems to mimic the style of the JJ Abrams movies, with lens flares and all  ...

This is what's bothering the nerds (me included).

Quite an enjoyable pilot! But then again, I'm a Star Trek fan.

badtrip naman kinuha pala nila si sasha from TWD. sobrang tuwa ko nung pinatay na nila 'yung babae eh, tapos maga-appear lang pala dito. sana patayin nila agad sa star trek.

Episode 3 is the real Pilot of the show--taking place 6 months later after the 2-hour prequel, it introduces the USS Discovery and her crew, and the actual premise of the TV series, which is a bit different than all the other Star Trek shows that came before it.

My main problem is the timeline--setting this TV series 10 years before the Original Series can be a bit of a stretch, since the technology seen and used here seems to be way more advanced than Kirk's era. Ah well, still good though.

- A female non-captain main protagonist. (still cant connect with the character as of yet though)
- A Captain with a seemingly devious agenda (rest of the crew does not appeal to me so far, although i feel that not all have been revealed)
- An appropriately named ship which seems to hold so much mysteries.
- Klingons that look like the stuff your nightmares are made of.

As a 25 year fan of the series, I'd say that this is exactly what this series needs.
So far, it is BOLDLY GOING WHERE THE SERIES HAS NEVER GONE BEFORE.

The USS Discovery has the shadow of Section 31 all over it.

What's your opinion on the spore travel technology? Did she actually travel to those places or were those just real-time visions of those places?

Too soon to make assumptions, but we can be certain that the plot is baked in for this season at least.

It looks more like film grain, to me. Not unusual with high-contrast scenes, even when shot on digital. I have a weak internet connection pero 90% of the time the stream is in 720p and I can see the grain.

Is anyone watching this on 4K atm? Because I am also seeing artifacts (I am on the regular HD plan) and my internet speed is 100Mbps.

Star Trek: Discovery Chapter 2 is set for a January 7, 2018 premiere.

The second chapter of Star Trek: Discovery begins with Episode 10, “Despite Yourself,” described as follows: “While in unfamiliar territory, the U.S.S. Discovery crew is forced to get creative in their next efforts to survive opposing and unprecedented forces and return home.”

I am. the last episode (Episode 15) was Meh...
Until the literal last minute of the episode.
Which gave me goosebumps all the way to the ending credits.

I thought Season 1 was okay, and I kept watching because the series was something different in a Trek show--Tyler's reveal as Voq was obvious, but Lorca's reveal as a villain and Mirror Georgiou's turn as Captain was something that I didn't expect.

Even the last minute of the season finale was a complete but welcome surprise, all the way to the ending credits  8)

Looking forward to Season 2

I agree. Last 3 episodes to go.

Gusto ko manood nito and the upcoming new series with Picard. Kaya lang medyo overwhelming yung backstory with the original series, TNG and the various spinoffs that I missed.

Will I understand the franchise if I start with Discovery?

I think ok lang naman.  I don't consider myself a Trekkie, but I can say that I have appreciated the movies and some shows I've watched.   You'll probably just miss some of the easter eggs occasionally thrown in by the shows.
