    Probably a case of them being one of the few styles of weapon Trek hasn't done before.

    They said at the panel, that since it's 930 years in the future, they felt safe experimenting with a new design aesthetic.

    Of the three things that dropped today, I definitely am the most lukewarm about this.

    As far as Michael, they frame her as if she were the lead in a comic book show. Which is fine.

    That's such odd timing that you & I were just discussing wide-beam weapons yesterday!

    Also, Mega Man uses an arm cannon. Not an arm blaster. :mad:

    The entire history of Star Trek is built on bad things happening just when {insert hero here} is the only person available/ship in the quadrant. So many parts of Trek history exist only because the heroes did a thing to cause them in the past. This isn't different, as far as I can tell.

    And to watch this trailer and suggest that Season 3's events happened because of Michael, or that Michael alone (and not, say, her and her crew) will save the day is a step beyond anything that this trailer indicates. It seems very unlikely that trailer guy is really pinning all hope on her alone and not, say, her and Discovery. Maybe we'll find out different, but I think calling this laughably bad writing when there is no episode to even watch yet is a bit much.

    I wonder if that random South Asian guy in a suit who was waiting around for Michael is actually a hologram or something. It would explain why he was just waiting around not doing much.

    I'm betting he's either a time cop or he's the captain who was waiting endlessly on Vulcan. :)

    Looks like they found a good use for wide beams =D

    Fair enough, but in this case, in the trailer, they look like arm / hand held blasters shaped to look like the emitter from MegaMan's Buster Cannon.

    You're actually right. I'm basing the trailer on my track record with the writing of the show up to this point.

    Seven dual wielding Blaster Carbines looked Bad-Ass!

    Those Borg enhancements sure make her amazing looking!

    Jeri got to show-off more of her acting range in those five seconds of clips than she did all of Voyager.

    While the Discovery trailer didn't make me as excited as the Picard one (for starters, it contained far less Tilly than I would prefer) I'm liking the trailer so far, maybe with the exception of what looks like Captain Georgiou in one scene. I'll have to admit that without any context it just looks like conflict for conflict's sake, but at this point I shouldn't be making any judgements. It looks like the region Discovery is in is politically fractured, which I actually prefer to the extremes of an all-encompassing hyper-advanced future Federation or the Borg/Control/Skynet/Insert-Generic-Genocidal-Baddie-Here wiping out everything save for a few thousand survivors. I'm wondering about the specifics though; it was neat to see the Andorians, the Cardassians and the Lurians of all people serving together in some kind of an alliance - but then again, they might turn out to be mercenaries or pirates just as well.

    But speaking of the Cardassians,
    it looks like I won't have to retreat into slash fiction dreamland just yet. Really, it was a pleasant surprise that I could readily identify the Cardassian and the Lurian without any doubt even though they were presumably just background aliens. Also, looking at all the Trills and what looks like the Caves of Mak'ala from Equilibrium, I'm beginning to wonder if the Dax symbiont is involved somehow, perhaps as a keeper of memories from the past.

    That is her rank........doesn't mean she's in command.

    How about the half-god subject of prophecies, destined to save Bajor?

    As to this trailer, it's entirely reasonable that Burnham would be awaited as a representative of the Federation from the past. That doesn't make it about her specifically, but rather what she represents - especially as she's the first to arrive.

    I know DISCOVERY Season 2 indicated that Star Fleet officially recorded Discovery and her crew as being lost.
    But there must have been sealed records somewhere that indicated just what really happened.
    Perhaps over the 1000 years it eventually came out somehow and that is how the future dude knows about her and Discovery?

    Possible; certainly once-secret records could be revealed over the course of 930 years.

    Also possible that he was just waiting for a representative of the Federation from the past, and heard of someone from the past who was going around wearing a badge representing those "ghosts".

    But hey, why consider possibilities when it's easier to just write off a whole season based on an out-of-context moment in a trailer?

    I'm not sure why you included the aggression in your last sentence, but yeah, my post was considering one of what could be a few possibilities.
    :wtf:
