And you can absolutely tell what those veterans did and didn't work on.
Or you could believe it's 2017 now and not 1966. Any other justification is just ridiculous and unneeded.
Just treat it as its own thing, and judge it on its merits. Not fifty years of shows that really have nothing to do with it.
DSC is set ten years before TOS, or there abouts. Look at the consoles of the DSC Federation ships. Now look at the consoles of the TOS Enterprise. Now try to explain how they go from DSC-tech to TOS-tech in roughly ten years. And more importantly, why...
Doesn't matter at all. It isn't the 60s anymore.
Like it or not, it does matter to some people. We shouldn't be dismissive of them because they have a different view of how things should be done.
I would have preferred a closer aesthetic to what came before, they went their own way. No harm, no foul. But it doesn't mean I'm not disappointed.
That horse has left the barn. It is what it is. This is the show you get.
I could have worded that better.
Came off a little more aggressive then I intended.
Right, consistency and believability don't matter. Of course not. Transporters and red matter. Sorry, forgot which franchise this is.
The lore/story is going to remain consistent. The visuals are getting a overhaul.
No more or less magical, and non-sensical, than Protomatter.
I'm pleased and relieved to see that they're being visually inventive, at least. Hoping that the next trailer we see gives us some sense of how the content of the show might break free of the old Trek dance moves - which are sadly very much in evidence in that first teaser.
To me, that just says "reboot". Visuals are an important part of the story, the feel of the universe to me. YMMV.
It is weird though that the props like communicators, tricorders and phasers are very faithful updates, while the big stuff like the computer consoles, uniforms and ships (not to mention the Klingons!) are completely redesigned. I really like what they did with the props, I wish they'd taken that approach to the overall visuals of the show. Oh well.
I like Harry Mudd's outfit...
Think the better word would be "reimagining", not so much a reboot. Sometimes it's good to retcon somethings and clearly it's important to one update the visuals, but two give Discovery it's own voice as well.
Depends on how you do it.
Dub over all uses of the word "Klingon," use something else that has a similar mouth movement.
Digitally remove the traditional Klingon symbol and replace it with something else.
Wouldn't that be about all?
You can't say that information hasn't be released, either officially or through leaks. While there are holes in the complete picture, enough is available for people to have some good ideas of what's going on, and to comment on what they know.

Sure you can, the phaser's, communicator, and tricorder you can tell at a glance were made by someone who respected the original designs and just updated them for the times.
Other things we have seen, well it's pretty obvious whoever made them was more interested in putting their own stamp on Star Trek then respecting the history of the setting.
