I think we just need to accept the fact that this is a full reboot.

    There is no such thing as a "soft reboot".

    Oh really? People have been using that term for quite a while here on this board.

    Just because people use that term doesn't mean it's actually a thing.

    Fiction is mutable. You can change and out right erase stuff. Which why we don't talk about James R. Kirk.
    No it's not, because the future of Star Trek doesn't exist.

    The explanation is the same as for all of those different looking Klingons. Different makeup created at different times.

    James R. Kirk.
    Warp drive having been invented after 2236.
    The events of "The Squire of Gothos" having taken place 900 years after Aaron Burr and Napoleon.

    This again?

    It's not a reboot.

    The audience doesn't get to decide whether it's a reboot. If thinking that helps you enjoy the show, fine, but only Paramount and the show's producers get to decide what is and isn't a reboot.

    Really, I haven't seen it yet but from the look of the promos for episode 3 it was looking like more unexpected tech advancements.

    Some so-called 'fans' are trapped in the past, and need to grow the frak up.

    It’s a term in the film industry, so it’s a thing. Sorry that reality conflicts with your ideas.

    Some fans can’t tell the difference between fiction and reality either. It’s why we have a reputation as weirdos.

    I don't have any fears, beyond the story being engaging. But, we as an audience shouldn't have to wait around for things to make sense.

    That's not a good explanation. It needs to on screen; in story. Makeup techniques is a poor excuse for sloppy storytelling.

    Not necessarily true. As far as many are concerned, there are only 3 Indiana Jones movies.

    Why?

    There was no explanation in TMP.

    Personal choices in entertainment doesn't mean that "Temple of Doom" doesn't exist or have Indiana Jones in it.

    Episode 3 has given us a definitive way to respond to these kinds of threads....

    I noticed that the series is somewhat more grittier than the other Trek shows. Which I find rather interesting.



    Really? I could have sworn there were four.

    Why? The makeup isn’t part of the story, it changes nothing.

    I honestly don't give a frak if it's a reboot... in my mind it'll just play out like a theatric version of a licensed novel series or something.

    I'm entertained, mission accomplished CBS Paramount Network Television company.
