Everyone always says this is not the time era when it comes to everything looking more advance on shows like STD so I 2ould say the same here. This is a 21st century trek production so it should not look this amateurish especially when professionals who have worked in multi million dollar projects backed by studios are heading this. TNG of 30 years ago had better effects then what we saw here. DS9 Starfleet Armada that went after the Dominion looked a thousand of times better than what we got here. Well I can say this Kurtzmans Trek products strengthen the superiority of TOS and the Berman era of Trek for sure.
