A few days ago the new trailer for Discovery was shown, and it focused almost exclusively on battles with the klingons. Especially the line of Cpt. Lorca to Burnham "You helped start a war. Don't you want to help me end it?" suggests that the Federation is at war with the klingons during the main timeframe of the series. Even more revealing are the comments by the creators on the Comic Con panel: http://trekmovie.com/2017/07/23/sdc...nberry-space-mushrooms-and-a-reimagined-mudd/ Alexander Orci describes the series the following: "how do you preserve and protect what Starfleet is in the weight of challenge like war and the things that have to be done in war is a very interesting and dramatic problem" and: "They are dealing with real problems in the middle of a war" and: "this particular universe is a particular dark time for the Federation and for Starfleet with this war happening" Now this sounds very worrying. War and peace was always a part of Star Trek. But never the main focus (even for the majority of DS9). Star Trek was previously built around exploration and discovery. "To boldly go where no man has gone before". Deep Space Nine focused heavily on war with it's klingon war arc and Dominion war arc. There were quite a few good episodes in it, but I wasn't overly fond of "war" being the only issue that was handeled from a certain point onward. Now it seems they are going full space war. Game of Thrones in space. I kind of have a problem with such "dark times", a major "war", being retroactively introduced into the universe. When Kirk and Spock travelled the universe, they travelled as explorers. Not as war veterans. And the Federation, the whole optimistic spirit, hell, even in the episodes in which they DO handle the topic of war - "Balance of Terror", "Errand of Mercy", the universe came across as a peaceful one that needed protection, not one in the aftermaths of a horrific galaxy-wide war. What are your opinions? Do you think Discovery will be a "war show"? Would you like that? How do you feel about making TOS retroactively a "post-war" show? Do you think this clashes with the overall vision of a "peaceful" future?
