    We're two episodes in and viewers are divided. Many love the show and the creative liberties it's taken with the visuals, canon and the Klingons. Or maybe they just like the fact that Star Trek is back on TV. Others aren't so happy, with what they found to be a lackluster pilot with forgetable characters, more stilted dialog and other poor choices that run the risk of driving away everyone but the most hardcore fans as well as potential All Access subscribers. Whatever your position, the show is certainly different for Trek and it begins anew with episode 3 which has been described as the real pilot, so here we go…

    FYI, Discovery starts in Canada at 8PM Eastern, 30 minutes before it hits CBS All Access.

    My Texans kicked serious ass today, so now if Discovery will become much better tonight with the actual ship and crew we're going to be dealing with, my day will be perfect.

    Well, funds are a little tight right now, so I have to wait a bit to get All Access. I’ve resigned myself to being spoiled rotten here. Let’s go!

    That scene with the shuttle pilot getting unteathered was actually kind of funny, in a morbid kind of way. :lol:
