    Nah, Rod Serling comes to mind.

    However, the show IS following Fuller's plan, which is fine. I can't disparage Fuller's talent, however, his firing was probably the best thing that happened to DSC. He simply caused too much delay by spreading himself too thin.

    The rule of thumb is that no show can be made by a single creative person. DSC itself has numerous personalities. Meyer, Goldsman, even Rod Roddenberry Jr. amongst others. This should give it more than enough story depth, over and above the running time of the 2:24 min trailer. Once again, people are trying to suggest a confused plot in a short trailer that's not trying to reveal the plot..they don't even show the Discovery itself or the captain!

    Nope.

    Marketing people do not get to redefine what the word "reboot" means, and neither does anyone else.

    If I remember correctly, TOS used an old lighting system (even back in that day), at least in the first season. There are a couple of times where I notice it.

    Additionally, film wasn't as good and things needed to be lit really brightly. Today, you don't need so much light and things look much more atmospheric.

    That's not how language works in either case, so....

    That's why it's a reimagining. It's the same timeline but with visual tweaks in order to use current technology and modern design sensibilities to produce the show. It's definitely the same timeline though. They said it is a direct prequel to TOS.

    ^ You're not really using the word "reimagining" correctly in this context.

    You know why, right? If we started having fun, then people who aren't a part of the group may want to see why we're having fun, and then we won't be the only ones having fun anymore, and all of our inside jokes will no longer get us the stares we all crave from the normies. Don't take away our stares. We need them, they make us feel superior about watching a TV show.

    I was happy on first viewing, but I've been liking the trailer better each time I watch it again.

    I suppose it's possible. I stared hard at her ears and couldn't tell if I was just imagining a slight Vulcan angle to them (and her eyebrows). I had the thought she might be Vulcan/Half Vulcan, but then I seem to recall press releases and interviews saying she was human. I might be mis-remembering of course.

    Additional Note: I also subscribe to the belief that the Klingons we've seen are indeed from the Sarcophagus ship, or some long lost relic. I find that kind of exciting really. Klingon culture has always seemed more interesting in concept than application to me, and if they can do something interesting with ancient Klingon lore, then neat.

    I think it's because there really is so much to take in, combined with the knowledge that we have a new Star Trek series coming! ♥

    So couple of things.

    1. Looks GREAT!!!!
    2. For those who wonder about Burnham being Vulcan etc and her ears/is she or isn't she Vulcan etc.......
    I will say this- the show has stated it will deal with modern issues among other things.
    You also see a shot of her lying down on what appears to be a medical bed about to scanned/operated on?
    You also see a shot of what appears to be Sarek talking to a young Burnham that looks different than what she grew up to be.

    So.........one of the inferences floating out their on the forums is that Burnham is going through some kind of conflict regarding WHO she is and the series will show here dealing with that. Whether that is gender, sexuality or species remains to be seen.........

    3. If and I mean IF this show is very successful I think it is possible that this could lead to a new TOS TV series with
    Kirk, Spock and all the rest- especially with the BEYOND sequel being so much in doubt. This would also explain WHY
    they went with a prequel series rather than something else since it would be an easier bridge to bringing a new TOS back to TV. If not, then they greenlight the Beyond sequel and no biggee.......

    What say you guys?
