It's a...7 out of 10 for me. I watched the first two episodes as a single pilot....it was ok. I like: - The production - Opening credits - Set and costume design - The overall look - The fact that the show does not have the Captain as its central protagonist Not liking as much: - The cast (apart from Michelle Yeoh, the cast aren't really making an impression on me) - Unmemorable characters and moments - Predictable death of a certain character In fact, it's possibly the least memorable Trek pilot i've seen. I'll stick with the show since i'm a Trek fan and it's costing me nothing extra to watch. For now, it's competent but i'm not fully engrossed as I was in previous Trek pilots. But, again, i'm looking forward to seeing where Michael's journey takes us. I suppose this episode... Spoiler ...this serves more as a Prologue? Like an origin story and the real series, in terms of the crew, ship and overall journey begins next week?
