    Rate and Discuss the First episode of Star Trek Discovery 1x01 'To Boldly Go'!

    I enjoyed this episode, they did a good job of bring the crew together. The designs and aesthetic were different than other past Trek series and looked well done. The ship looks better than what we saw in the teaser. CGI was great, also, the background score was different but pretty good.

    What a cliffhanger! I can't believe they killed him off in the first episode! JC is going to be mad!

    And I can't believe they found an actress for the Number One part who looks exactly like Majel Barrett when she was younger! Well, I guess if Abrams can do it...

    They were trying to go much to match TOS's score I think, felt a little weird.

    Hated it. I knew that a musical version of Star Trek would be awful. And that song... "Let It Go". Didn't like the characters of Elsa and Anna just annoyed me.

    Ugh. Of ALL the episodes they could've rehashed from, they chose VOY's "Threshold"?!!

    Seeing Emony Dax with Bones was awesome

    Yeah. Those Emony scenes were pretty amazing. I had no idea Taylor Swift was so spry.

    Wow, all of my doubts have been put to rest. They did a great job of staying consistent with TOS, but still making it unique.
    I can't believe they actually got him to appear. I wonder if we'll see him again?

    Well, I don't know what episode you were watching, but there wasn't a damn thing that was consistent with TOS. I told everyone that Fuller was secretly making a reboot, and now I have been vindicated.

    I liked the carpeting..so rich, so plush. I'd bet a million dollars there was some sort of futuristic ScotchGuard going on there. I don't care if TOS had no carpeting.

    I'm SO surprised. Maybe he'll be a recurring character, like TV's John DeLancie playing "Q".

    Pretty piss poor. I voted "Back to the Drawing Board!" which was too kind.

    The only silver lining is that at least Betazoid women visibly have three breasts now, like they were supposed to.

    I'm sorry, but having a Chief Engineer who is half Tribble is JUST. NOT. REALISTIC.

    I know we're trying to be more inclusive now, but the poor guy doesn't even have limbs and his millions of progeny keep overrunning the ship. This is PC culture run amok!

    Those robes and sandals must be pretty drafty in space.

    Boooo, the limbless are one of the forgotten underclass. How dare you be so callous! Limbless Lives Matter!

    I enjoy my starship crew as diverse and inclusive. I particularly liked the "plus sized" model type in the skant.
